Five Fred Claus Posters

in: Comedy


Fred Claus Poster 1

In theory the idea of Vince Vaughn playing the black sheep of the Claus family sounds hilarious. But these posters aren’t doing much to sell what should be an extremely easy to sell movie. As a matter of fact, all the elf action is making the film seem quite silly. And not in the good way.

And Vince Vaughn, who should be the main draw, is being seriously misused. His expression in both posters he appears is quite bland. It’s like Vaughn has been replaced with a more boring version of himself. And the interaction between Vaughn and the elf in the poster above seems very fake, as if it was an image put together in Photoshop. Which it most likely is, but it shouldn’t look that way.

You can check the rest of the posters after the jump. Hopefully the picture is a lot better than the posters.

    So thanks for ruining my day. This was one of my most anticipated movies of the year; what with Giamatti as Claus and all.

    But these posters are TERRIBLE! Stupid tag lines, NOT funny and very elf heavy. We need more Giamatti and more Vaughn looking like he gives a damn.

    This marketing makes it look like the movie will be sort of Tim Allen-ish. I’m not happy.

    I’ve said that least 2641666 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
