Hope Springs is the first in a series of promotional movies paving the way for an adaptation of 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. Look out for the next steamy instalment, starring Helen Mirren and the dad from Harry And The Hendersons.
Don't do it, Alex Cross! Don't jump! The tagline on your new poster isn't that bad (shhh nobody tell him it is).
Easy Money comes with a ringing endorsement from outspoken novelist James Ellroy, author of The Black Dahlia and L.A. Confidential. He also co-hosts a crime show on Discovery Investigation with a talking computer-generated police dog named Barko. Make of that what you will.
If the thought of a movie where the guy who played Skeletor and his robot butler go on the rob appeals to you, then do yourself a favour and don't watch the latest trailer for Robot & Frank. Unless you want to know every single plot beat, that is, then here go nuts.
"First they took his daughter. Now they're coming for him." This poster for Taken 2 neatly sidesteps the bit that happened in between when Liam Neeson massacred a small town of Eastern Europeans.
This poster for Goats looks like one of those 'This Picture Cannot Be Explained' pictures.
Tragically, budget constraints and ill-advised merchandising agreements mean the return of Paddington will see the loveable bear attend a Skrillex concert, and instead of tucking into his signature marmalade sandwiches will now share a family bucket of KFC with the Browns.
Hasn't Resident Evil: Retribution been out yet? I feel like I've been posting posters for it since forever. Could just stop but every barrel needs a bottom.
And finally; if whoever designed these posters for The Campaign was happy for us to see up Will Ferrell's nose, down his pores and into the gloopy bits in the corners of his eyes... then what the hell was so wrong with his ear that they had to photoshop it out?
