Exclusive reveal: what is Mr Turner painting in his poster?
Look, here's the lovely new quad poster (large) for Mike Leigh's Oscar-botherer Mr Turner, in which Timothy Spall plays 19th century paint god JMW Turner.

You might think that splash of orange paint is an artistic statement, or perhaps a way of shielding young children from seeing Timothy Spall's monstrous visage, but we can exclusively reveal what Turner is painting in this poster. You won't believe your eyes.



So HE'S the one responsible.

No one told Bruce Willis we're not doing casual Friday any more

We all know Bruce Willis stopped caring about his movies about two Die Hards ago, but he could at least have worn a shirt and tie for the poster shoot. The Prince gets minus poster points for the unnecessary helicopter and the mysterious sparks. Also because it looks like it was made in a lunch break. Which, coincidentally, is when Bruce Willis filmed his cameo.

Confusing movie poster of the day
Well, that certainly is an interesting and obtuse title for a film about a cycling rivalry seemingly between Phil Neville and Charlton Heston. Unless slaying the badger is what cyclists do to make road races more fun?

Poster upgrade: How To Train Your Dragon 2's poster #selfie
DreamWorks have released a new poster for How To Train Your Dragon 2 in which they've attempted to squeeze every single character - man and beast - onto a single one-sheet. The final composition seemed quite familiar to me so I decided to fire up Photoshop and fill in the blanks.

Clint Eastwood accepts challenge to use shittiest title font ever

Clint Eastwood accepts challenge to use shittiest title font ever
I would have thought Eastwood would have wanted a title treatment that said 'glitz and glamour' or 'rhythm and swing', not 'five dollar blowie from a tramp in an alley'. I can't identify the font, but I bet that's a forced italic - and I'm pretty sure that's a stock Photoshop pattern overlay. The little hole in the top loop of the 'B' is literally driving me fucking cuckoo. THIS IS MY CURSE.


Fuck. FUCK.

Eight astonishing things on the new X-Men: Days Of Future Past poster
The X-Men don't historically have a lot of luck when it comes to cool poster designs - who could forget 9/3/11? - and that trend continues with this mental new one-sheet for X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Featuring: ALL OF THE THINGS.

What if John Travolta read the names of the Best Picture nominees?

What if John Travolta read the names of the Best Picture nominees?
We've all had a good laugh at poor old John Travolta for his unfortunate lingual boner at the Oscars - the moment he introduced actress/singer Idina Menzel on stage as "Adele Dazeem", he practically invited the entire internet round to ridicule him. Travolta may have flubbed Menzel's name, but it could have been worse: what if John had been tasked with reading the names of the nine movies nominated for Best Picture? And we all had to just go with it? Let's dare to go to there.

IMAX: making slightly bum-looking films look halfway watchable since forever. Can't wait to see the new RoboCop SLASH SLASH.

If 2014's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth
As soon as I heard today's announcements for the 2014 Academy Awards, I opened up Photoshop and whipped up these 15 mildly amusing honest poster alternatives in five minutes flat, because I'm just that talented. Seriously. These didn't take a month, no matter what you've heard. Off the cuff humour, each and every one. And that's the truth.
