Lots of new film posters have "hit" the "net" this week, like some kind of penalty shootout which involved a really good footballer - let's say Pelé (he's a footballer, right?) - kicking posters into a goal with no goalie keeper. Do you see? The posters are "hitting" the "net"! Oh never mind.

Let's take a long, hard, coldly analytical look at a few:

Cowboys & Aliens
Rubbish. Is Daniel Craig going to spend the whole film with a wedgie?

Rubbish. Has Simon Pegg been mo-capped?

Cars 2
Rubbish. Especially if you live in Ireland.


  1. I see what you mean! WTF! Obviously disney/pixar have decided that the west coast of Scotland has a tumour, Orkney and Shetland don't exist and Iceland (presumably) looks like a pacman ghost!

  2. Oh goodness, this doesn't bode well at all, does it? Wedgie on Daniel Craig - someone must have had a good laugh about that in the printing room...and again when they're plastering in on billboards. Teehee

  3. sidenote - don't even get me started on Geography. I really think it should be a staple subject like Mathematics.

  4. Is it set in some kind of apocalyptic future where sea is slowly disappearing? Ireland appears to have changed shape and merged with Scotland. Unbelievable! :O

    What happened to the days of lovely painted posters? Even the Harry Potter franchise has given up!

  5. I think Ireland is supposed to be shaped like a car. There's a car shaped island in the Caribbean (CARibbean!) too. What a load of shit.

  6. What teselby said. Maybe the plot of Cars 2 is a road-trip romp from Eire to Cuba. Underwater.

    And as for 'Paul', forget the photoshopping, the poster was destined for shitness the minute the words 'Seth' and 'Rogen' appeared on it.

  7. Watched the trailer for 'Cowboys & Aliens'. It looks like 'Close Encounters of the Spielberg CGI Kind'. I'd prefer another viewing of 'Westworld' (1973) with Yul Brynner as 'Gunslinger'.
