Firstly, you'd nardly know The Bucket List is about two men with cancer escaping the hospital to do a list a things they've always wanted to do. Instead it looks like yet another movie with veteran actors showing up on set for a paycheck for a movie that, in the publicity for the film, can be described as "a whole lot of fun". Ugh. They usually tend to be the laziest sorts of films, which typically means they're a load of shite. Does anything about that poster make you want to see that movie? They don't even take advantage of Jack's kooky bald head that he showed off at this year's Academy Awards. That is surely at least something to target your marketing on, right?
And when it comes to the Charlie Wilson's War poster? Well... it's not exactly a poster that screams "BEST PICTURE!" is it? It's like with the trailer and now this poster they're trying to market it as some kooky comedy that's all about Tom Hanks' accent and Julia Roberts' hair, which it apparently is not. The poster just strikes me as really poorly conceived and produced. Especially with a dorky-looking Phillip Seymour Hoffman inserted in. It just looks overly silly.
