Jennifer’s Body Poster

The first poster for Jennifer’s body suffered from a certain lack of originality. Still, it was a crisp display of the sex + danger = fun equation. Well, here we have the second poster and, although it works well on the sex front, the danger is almost totally gone. In its place we have some [...]
