This is the poster for Burlesque.

That was the poster for Burlesque.

So, top points for being completely and utterly unafraid of all the nasty, grotesque, homophobic trolls that patrol the internet as if only heterosexual men are allowed to be on here. They're certainly not backing down from the "camp" vibe of all the other marketing material released so far and I love it for doing so. I also love whoever designed this because they actually put Cher on there when it would've been so easy to say "nobody knows who Cher is!"

Still, the poster is RIDICULOUS, no?

Is Christina Aguilera on a first name basis with the world now?

I keep forgetting what she looks like until someone shows me her picture again.

This entire movie will be deliciously ridiculous. They'd better make good use of Cher, though.

It kind of looks like like a promo poster for a reality makeover/talent show hosted by Cher. Because it takes a legend to make a star.

This is going to be the PG-13 version of Showgirls...and who needs that?
