Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Jack London

    My vote is for "Fuck you, its September."


  • sanyo

    Liev Schreiber on Mars? Yes please.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    JD bears a striking resemblance to Bogart.

  • Thor

    Blue is the Warmest Color.

  • Tinkerville

    The way that Third Person poster is spliced up just makes it look Olivia Wilde is weirdly, weirdly contorted.

    Why didn't Labor Day come out around, you know, Labor Day?

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Hey! Why don't we get a closeup of Liam's legs? I've seen Rob Roy, they're lovely. I call shenanigans, Third Person poster!

  • The Book Thief and Last Days on Mars.

    Kate Winslet in a depressing suburban drama? Seen it. Photoshop diarrhea? Definitely seen it. Paul Walker is the dumbest, rudest human being I have ever met (though his eyes are arresting even across a ballroom), and I avoid all of his movies since that encounter. The age gap between Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde makes me roll my eyes, no matter how sexy he is (very).

    Liev Schrieber in a spacesuit had not crossed my mind before, but to the spank bank it goes!

  • Enemy looks really intriguing. The Hours poster belongs in the bad Photoshop HOF. Paul Walker can't even act well on a one-sheet.

  • Robert

    Blue is the Warmest Color. You put "Winner Palme D'or" on your poster, I want to see it. Second place is Labor Day because of the director credits. I didn't know Jason Reitman had a movie with Kate Winslet coming out.

  • See, now I see "Winner Palme D'or" on a movie poster and it sets my Pretentious Bullshit meter off. I guess my cynicism is set to 11, or something...

  • thebluestepside

    Enemy. Great design.

  • Modernlove

    Enemy because that beard and the creepy spider thing. From the shoulders down, The Book Thief looks cool. Her face is kinda weirding me out, though.

  • $27019454

    Poster for Book Thief is compelling, but I never read the book, so. But I will avoid the Kate Wnslet one. I have no credible reason for this, but beginning with S&S and ending with whatever she is in today, that actress has gone from "She can do no wrong" to "Uh, NO." It's always weighty, grave, super-serious (say it in Al Gore's South Park voice) and she officially BUGS. I'll show myself out because I'm pretty sure she is considered St. Kate round these parts.

  • emilya

    the book thief is one of the most amazing books i've ever read and i've yet to meet anyone who didn't love the book (and i belong to a SUPER opinionated book group). Definitely worth the read.

  • emmalita

    I find Salinger more intriguing based on the poster.

  • BWeaves

    I'm sorry, but the girl in The Book Thief poster is too pretty and clean and well groomed.

  • ViciousTrollop

    I want to see Toronto destroyed by a giant spider!

  • BWeaves

    Blue is the Warmest Color.

  • dizzylucy

    The Enemy poster is interesting at least.
    I am looking forward to the Book Thief though, I loved the book.

  • John G.

    Liam Neeson has a very particular set of skills that allow him to keep getting paired with women who are 30 years younger than him.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Is being male a skill? Huh.
    Also, I love Liam, but he used to be better than this.

  • $27019454

    Thang being some kind of magnetism that somewhat transcends his age. It makes me have uh ... thoughts.

    Not "that" thang.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Don't lie, it's totally that thang, and I think a lot of us are with you on that.

  • $27019454

    Here's how reprehensible I am: Last weekend we 'family-watched' Schindler's List. I had my arm around my daughter, and both kids were very affected and grave as they watched. And every now and then I would think to myself: I SO would.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    That's absolutely disgusting - and I totally get it and agree with you. Ralph Fiennes AND Liam in black and white, that's too much for my tiny brain to take. That movie does terrible things to us all.

  • Wigamer

    Ralph Fiennes was so beautiful in that movie. There's no shame in being into Liam as Schindler--he was both altruistic and apparently good in the sack. But feeling attracted to Ralph was altogether more disturbing.

  • $27019454

    It's called "That thang," and he's got it. I have no explanation as to how or why. But I can attest to its effects.

  • theotherone

    She could be his daughter(?).

  • $27019454

    true. But still. I know, I hate me for saying this, but it seems to work for him...(?)

    I hate me.

  • Maguita NYC

    It's called Hollywood. No skills needed.

  • bastich

    Did anyone else read the Gyllenhaal poster title as "Enema"?

    (Need. more. coffee.)

  • BWeaves

    Um, yeah. (Slowly raises hand in agreement.)

  • Blake

    This one:

  • Indeed. Looked al all the posters, was mildly curious about a couple, but kept wondering, "where is the one with more of Kate Winslet's gorgeous belly?"

    That pic... distracting.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Even her bellybutton is sexy.

  • Jay Pausner

    Enemy. Because the Toronto skyline, even though I know the story will likely show Toronto as a sterile place. Also, is that a spider walking on the skyscrapers?

  • emmalita

    That is an arachnid of some sort.

  • Bananaranma

    Gratifying to see Hollywood busting chops to keep the Mars shitty movie streak alive.

    And Enemy looked...interesting.

  • Kala

    I don't know if any of them peaked my interest, but the "Can a song save your life" poster is pissing me off. Who are you? There isn't a speck of information on your poster. Why are making these inquiries? The color scheme alone is enough to keep me far away, though for all I know, the film could document a day in the life of Patrick Stewart while he hangs out with Ian McKellan, and they compare knighthoods while on the road to a karaoke competition.

    Okay, I wouldn't stay away from that movie, no matter what the poster looked like.

  • Maguita NYC

    ... I thought the "Can a Song Save Your Life" poster was an add for some feminine hygiene product. Or that pill Yaz.

  • bastich

    I just got a visual of Sirs Stewart and McKellan walking down a lonely beach together, asking if they ever get that "not so fresh" feeling.

  • Maguita NYC

    Even when hanging around trash, these two are still the freshest bitches ever.

  • NateMan

    I think we've found our EE winning thread for the week.

  • Maguita NYC

    You've got to add your special brand of "Felt Love" to make it a bigger winner.

    Urgh. Your ungodly felt-affection still makes me noxious.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Of course the answer is "no." Sir StewKellan is as fresh as the morning dew on the petals of a daisy.

  • Samantha Klein

    None. But I should probably read The Book Thief one of these days. I have to say that the Enemy poster is very intriguing, but meh, Gyllenhaal. It would take a lot more than him to get me to watch something with gigantic spider-looking things.

  • Tinkerville

    The Book Thief is beautiful and haunting. Definitely recommend picking it up when you can.

  • Guest


  • Ben

    Enemy and Third Person look the most interesting to me.

  • BobbFrapples

    Book Thief, but just barely. Something is off with the Photoshop because her Bambi eyes seem extra creepy.

  • emmalita

    I really liked The Book Thief, and would be inclined to see the movie, but the poster is off-putting. Based only on the poster, I would avoid it.

  • Maguita NYC

    I connected the poster to the trailer automatically, and that gave me chills. Maybe if I hadn't seen the trailer, the poster would have bothered me.

  • Samantha Klein

    Oh, see, if they'd had Geoffrey Rush on the poster, I'd be all in.

  • emmalita

    I hate the VoiceOver and sappy music. But I'm still going to see the movie, because it's a great book. I like Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson.

  • Maguita NYC

    Apparently the voice will be changed for Death's or at the very least, other than Liesel's... Mswas knows more about this...

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Really? Thank god, I was very concerned that Liesel was replacing death on the VO.

  • AudioSuede

    Holy shit, that "Enemy" poster is gorgeous.

  • Maguita NYC

    Definitely want to see this! And yes, the beard is glorious.

    Also, The Book Thief gave me chills... I heard ITS voice in my head.

  • BigBlueKY

    and he should keep a beard forever.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    The beard kind of makes his face for me. Amazing what a few hair follicles can do.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Yes, yes, YES!

  • Fabius_Maximus

    And maybe the giant spider in his head.
