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.

Have we all processed the 2013 Oscar nominations yet? Still fuming about Paul Thomas Anderson's snub? Furious that Skyfall didn't get a Best Picture nod? Sarcasm is what you need. Lovely, sneering sarcasm. Here's what this year's Oscar-nominated movies' posters would say if they could be honest just for one goddamn minute.

And to think, the movies we didn't already zing OUTRAGEOUSLY earlier in the year thought they'd gotten away with it. No one avoids the carpet bombing of Photoshop truth. Especially not you, Magic Mike.

It's been at about five months since our last lot of truthful movie posters. This latest batch of one-sheets thought they could get away with bullshitting us. They didn't reckon on ALL MY FREE TIME.

Truthified posters for the two Oscar-nominated pics we missed earlier this week - because we're nothing if not completists.

It's that time of year again: the Oscar nominations are in, and the chatter has begun. Who will fail to beat George Clooney and Meryl Streep this time? In the interests of transparency, we've shopped the posters for this awards season's biggest movies so they're a little more honest about their content. Pretend this is the first time we've done it.

A whole host of blockbusters are on their way this summer, ready to dazzle you with dizzying marketing campaigns, flashy trailers and big-name stars. Let's cut the crap: here are the posters for the real movies.

The Best Picture nominees have been announced, and what an exciting bunch of films they are. Facebook: The Movie? (*chuckles*) Hollywood, you've done it again! But what if the posters couldn't tell lies?
