Why Is Minka Kelly Unrecognizable On The Charlie’s Angels Poster When She’s The Show’s Only Recognizable Star?

Why Is Minka Kelly Unrecognizable On The Charlie's Angels Poster When She's The Show's Only Recognizable Star?

For some reason, the producers of the Charlie’s Angels reboot decided to cast two newcomers, to be led by established actress Minka Kelly, as its beautiful-but-deadly trio. The only problem is, no one really recognizes Minka thanks to the Photoshopping on the posters (she’s the one in the middle), which kind of defeats the purpose. More »

Why don’t we see those in posters more often? More »

The ‘One Day’ Poster Spoils the Movie

The 'One Day' Poster Spoils the Movie

We’ve heard of trailers showing all the good parts of a movie, but for a poster to spoil the climax of a film is ridiculous!

While at the movie theater recently, I walked past the official poster for the upcoming adaptation of One Day, David Nicholls’ lovely book about the uneven and evolving friendship between university alums Dex (Jim Sturgess) and Emma (Anne Hathaway).

"Historically Hardcore" Posters Compare 50 Cent, Bret Michaels to Famous Figures

Last week I posted some tweets from Columbia College Chicago’s Twitter page, where whoever was in charge of outreach used pop culture references to attract applicants to the school. The trend seems to be catching: “Historically Hardcore“, a series of posters by art director Jenny Burrows and copywriter Matt Kappler, unites the accomplished men from your high-school history books with male celebrities found on reality TV and Twitter.
