Movie poster round-up: surfboards, lifeboats and bedside manners

There's a famous Hollywood story that Ang Lee's agent advised him against taking on Life Of Pi, citing the dangers of working with animals and children - to which Lee responded by removing a pair of baby sloths from his rucksack, who promptly hugged each other and world peace was declared. It isn't true. They were macaques.
Gerard Butler prepared for Chasing Mavericks by living in a beach house for twelve months and learning how to surf, eventually becoming one with the sea. I prepared for dinner today by eating a chocolate bar and becoming one with the sofa. In a way we're both pros.
Looking at the cast for Cloud Atlas just now, I noticed Tom Hanks plays a character called Dr. Henry Goose and did a laugh. Haha, Dr. Goose! Honk!
Guns don't kill people, Machete Kills people. With guns (and machetes).
Top poster website IMPAwards have a load of posters for Tim Burton's Frankenweenie, but this one of a dog with a beehive hairstyle is my favourite because it's a dog with a beehive hairstyle. Only thing better would be a cat in a tank top (*makes hopeful raised eyebrow gesture at Tim Burton).
Keanu Reeves-produced Side By Side looks a bit like The Expendables for film nerds, but with less explosions and better acting.
I can just imagine the dramatic trailer voiceover now: "Betrayed by his Government... On the run from all he knows... Aaron Eckhart is... The Expatriate - an exciting new action thriller set in... Belgium? Okay guys, who's been messing with my script again?"
And finally; this very, very NSFW poster for Nurse 3D give us the perfect opportunity to play a game of word association. I'll go first. Nurse: Mother. Breast: Mother. Milk: Mother. Mother: that fucking awful Psycho remake where Vince Vaughn has a peep and a wank.
