The Weekly Round-Up: Chapter 27, Meet Dave, The Babysitters, Gunnin’ for that #1 Spot, Passchendaele and Flashbacks of a Fool

Nothing better to start the week than a palate cleansing poster round-up.

Chapter 27

Chapter 27 Poster

I know what I’m supposed to think when I see this poster. I’m supposed to think about Mark Chapman. About the creepy expression in his eyes. And about the terrible crime he is about to commit. But instead all I’m thinking is “Wow, Jared Leto is fat!”

The problem for me is that he simply doesn’t disappear into the role enough. I still see Jared clearly in the picture. And ultimately that just distracts me from anything of substance related to the movie. It’s quite possible that I wouldn’t have the same problem with the actual performance, since the movement, sound and time will give Leto a better chance of making me believe him as Chapman. But in here? I just can’t get over it.

The Babysitters

The Babysitters Poster

Sex sells, but in these Internet days it tends to be cheap. They are going to have to come up with more than titillation to convince people to pay to see this.

Gunnin’ for that #1 Spot

Gunnin’ for that #1 Spot Poster

A hard to miss and strong image that gets across clearly the general idea of what the movie is about. I like it. The title leaves me a little cold tough.


Passchendaele Poster

A beautiful and ominous image. But perhaps a little to reminiscent of the famous image used in the promotion of Band of Brothers?

Flashbacks of a Fool

Flashbacks of a Fool Poster

Hmm, a reflection used to show the character’s younger self. Where have I seen that before?

Meet Dave

Meet Dave Poster

Before this poster I was only kind of aware that Eddie Murphy had another movie coming out soon. Now, thanks to this poster and to the Eddie Murphy in Edie Murphy concept I’m not only aware of the film and it’s name, I’m also mildly interested in perhaps reading a few reviews in order to find out if this is worth seeing if it ever stumble across it on the TV. Success!

Honestly, the concept sound unpromising. But we’ll see.

    It’s very bizarre that there is this “Meet Dave” movie coming as well as “Meet Bill” with Aaron Eckhart.

    For some reason, I find Daniel Craig’s jeans extremely annoying. Mmm…Not really a fan of the poster though. It’s too collage-y. The Life Before Her Eyes poster was much better executed. This looks like it was put together in a rush.
