Zooey Deschanel Does Not Care For Your Comments, Internet | "Diana" Trailer: The Movie About Princess Diana and Her Love Affair with "Lost's" Hairless, Dorky Sayid

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Alwyn

    getaway getaway stay away stay away

  • Gord Reid

    The poster for "Jayne Mansfield's Car" only left me wondering one thing... Why didn't Wes Anderson call Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman for this one?

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Why is Tom Hanks being photo bombed in the Captain Phillips poster?

  • 'Thor' and maybe 'Frankenstein's Army.' The rest of them are kind of 'ehh.'

  • Orleanas

    Enough Said : I like the vibe created by Gandolfini and Louis-Dreyfus, and it includes Toni Collette.
    Blood : I'm not familiar with any of the actors, but I'm getting a British vibe, which makes me think it's likely to be better than what an American film can produce of late.

    Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez?! There's something slightly odious for me about that pairing.

  • googergieger

    *inappropriate joke*

  • Normal Norm

    They all look formulaic and dull, so: "none."

    Also, you meant "these 9," right?

  • e jerry powell

    Enough Said.

    The poster doesn't make me want to see the movie as much as it reminds me of how damn sexy Gandolfini was and that Julia Louis-Dreyfus should have had more feature films happening a good fifteen years ago.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Is Captain Phillips a movie poster or one of those "SOON" memes?

  • Devin McMusters

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Toni Colette and Catherine Keener in one movie? Cougariffic.

  • Thanks for sharing Old Movie Cinema!!!

  • Kala

    The cast line of Blood is enough to get me into the theater. No idea what the film is about, but the presence of Cox and Strong guarantee my presence.

  • mrsdalgliesh

    Cox, Strong and Bettany, for me. This is the only poster for an unfamiliar movie that is at all interesting to me. I mean, I'm going to see Thor, even if Natalie Portman is becoming some kind of space queen (what is with that outfit?).

  • Bea Pants

    Blood, because the cast is made of awesome, and Thor because Thor.

  • mrsdalgliesh

    See, I replied above, but I should have read this and said, "This."

  • Anne At Large

    Helloooo Thor. Also is that my Doctor Nine giving fierce elf-face in the upper left corner?

  • DataAngel

    Yes. Yes it is.

  • Michelle

    I mean... Amy Poehler is part of Free Birds. That's gotta count for something, right?

    But srsly, I will likely see: Blood, The Spectacular Now, Captain Philips, and Thor (begrudgingly; I am not convinced he needs his own movie series).

  • Oooh, look, Paul Bettany is trying again! I hope it works for him this time. I like him.


    Though I almost changed my mind because of stupid bland Natalie Portman. But Thor is back and his hair is magnificent and THOOOOR!!!

  • Xochitl Herrera Villarreal

    Where's Coach Taylor? You gave me a header pic of Coach Taylor being sick of my shit, but I don't see no poster. I'd buy a ticket to that.

  • Michelle

    He's in The Spectacular Now. And from what I've read in reviews, he's great in it (as if it needs to be said!).

  • I mostly think of that movie as the thing responsible for the recent Shailene Woodley is Finally Free From Secret Life of the American Teenager talk show tour.

  • Xochitl Herrera Villarreal

    Blood. also, Now, although I think it might suck. I'd really like to see James Gandolfini's last pic, but that's more out of sentimentality than anything else because that poster isn't selling me anything.

  • Haystacks

    Enough Said. But only because I am sad that James Gandolfini died.

  • Gollumcreep

    The Turkey one, because I've never seen a movie about a turkey.

  • luthien26

    But I've seen plenty of movies that WERE turkeys. (sorry, couldn't resist)

  • stella

    Coach Taylor looks so disappointed in all of these posters

  • mairimba

    Frankenstein's Army. Not kidding.

  • DominaNefret


    That one.

  • ed newman

    Why is Coach Taylor heading this post? Is he hiding in one of these posters? What gives?

  • dizzylucy

    Don't look a gift Coach in the mouth.

  • tracey8051

    Just the pic of Coach up at the top. I could just watch him all day long.

    Of course, I will see Thor, but that poster isn't doing much for me...

  • DataAngel

    Does "Frankenstein's Army" involve Spinal Tap in any way? Because that's what the font brings to mind.

  • luthien26

    Needs more umlauts!

  • llp

    Great turkey movie, or GREATEST turkey movie?

  • llp

    Is that supposed to be Jaime Alexander as Sif in the Thor poster? I am just guessing. Also, Hiddleston is not just chewing the scenery, he is chewing up the poster.

  • luthien26

    Needs more umlauts!

  • luthien26

    Ooops, that was supposed to be a response to another post, sorry!

  • llp

    That's ok, "needs more umlauts" is obviously the "needs more cowbell" of the day!

  • BWeaves

    Were Thor and Natalie Portman even in the same room when that "photograph" was taken? How is her face lit from the right side when he's blocking her light? How come she looks like she's indoors and he looks like he's outdoors? So many questions. So don't care.

  • All I can see in that is Hemsworth. Took me forever to realize there's all kinds of stuff around him.

  • $27019454

    Blood. For the credits at the top. And the name. And the tagline. And the graphic.

  • mrsdalgliesh

    It's always momentarily confusing, though, when the names don't line up with the picture. Why does Paul Bettany look like Mark Strong? (and vice versa).

  • koko temur

    For a moment there, i seriosly thought they had Brian Cox, the particle physict, and got really really excited

  • Fabius_Maximus


  • sorcha7420

    Anything with Coach Taylor in it. That goes double if Tami is in it too.

  • The only one where a really large screen (but NOT 3D!!) and a group of people might actually be part of the experience might be Thor - and I have to respect my 9-year-old daughter's crush on the Norse god. I'm interested in some of the others, but not enough to "brave a theater," as you say.

    I will note it's good to see that Mr. Jennifer Connelly may finally be returning to us as a talented actor and not some noble priest or temple acolyte trying to stave off the apocalypse. He deserves more quality work than Jarvis.

  • Carrie

    Ooh woman!
    I...don't know
    Men (possible bird woman)
    Young woman!
    More than one woman!
    Another woman
    Meh, Natalie Portman.

    Um...maybe the Spectacular Now?

  • BigBlueKY

    Captain Phillips for the dude with the crazy eyes lurking in the back.

  • Ian Fay

    OK, Frankenstein's Army sounds completely insane.

    I must see it.

  • Devin McMusters

    I think they're just teasing us with that one. It would be too awesome if that were a real movie.

  • Ian Fay

    So I thought too, so I checked this:


  • Devin McMusters

    Looks like it's already been released, and we'll never see it out here in the boonies. Just like last summer with Iron Sky. I guess I'll catch it on DVD.

  • Samantha Klein

    Blood. Mark Strong + Paul Bettany = YES.
    Thor goes without saying.

  • DataAngel

    Yeah, I saw "Paul Bettany" and immediately said "Ok, yes, that one."

  • Buellie413

    My reasons exactly.

  • Vi

    Shallow man-candy reasons are perfectly legit. (See: Avengers)

  • maydays

    I don't know about wanting to see any of the movies, but I sure don't want to see that Captain Phillips poster any more! Creepy!

  • Lemon_Poundcake


  • Wigamer

    Somali pirate photobombs probably involve actual bombs.

  • No Pithy Name

    In Somalia, photo bombs you!

  • Guest

    1. No
    2. No
    3. No
    4. No
    5. No
    6. No (Is this a remake of the 72 original? Or remake of 94 remake?).
    7. No
    8. No
    9. No

    Another sweep!

  • Normal Norm


  • Malky

    Thor because it has the word "Thor" on it.

  • Sherry

    Yes. Thor. The word that implies "Hemsworth." [pushes chips all in]

  • Wigamer

    Captain Phillips, because heroic Tom Hanks makes me happy. He is a goddamn national treasure.

  • Michelle

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one that feels this way.

  • Wigamer

    I would also buy a ticket to "Coach Taylor Is Still Sick of Your Shit."

  • Nicole Childress

    I second that.

  • God Of Bal-Sagoth

    Ethan Hawke! Selena Gomez!

    /record scratch

  • I thought he was supposed to die in Gattaca....

  • Wigamer

    I hope he's playing her DAD.
