The nonchalant hipster girl looks exactly the same, though.

Is she credited as "Amber Lamps"?

You know, everyone mocks this poster but I think it's actually pretty good. Everyone's getting blinded by the shittiness of a Dwayne Johnson-knock off Hulk Hogan Triple H vehicle (there's some irony there). I know the two people up top are photoshopped in, but only because it's been discussed enough that on-set photoshoots aren't a thing. Actually examining it closer I'm pretty sure they've just been hit by a shrink ray, but still, leagues ahead of most of the photoshops for much more normal poses. It doesn't really make much sense that H is standing smugly in front of a moving bus or why Professorson is grimly accepting his head will shortly smash into the tarmac but at least behind Hthey all look like they're actually within the same space. I could be wrong but even the lighting looks like it's even across the shot. And though they don't tell me anything useful, I quite like the dollar bills, windshield crack, and bandage for at least being visually interesting details? It reminds me of David Dees http://www.sl-webs.com/deesillustra...=526&cat=satire in a weird way, that strange mix of hyper-realism and cartoons (and ideologically abhorrent).

I mean fair enough Hogan Triple H is staring at us like, "If you want those 3 bucks for shoving a plug up my rear end, fine, just take them from me!" but whoever designed this was working with the lowest of the low and at least put more effort into that than quite a few blockbuster posters.

Oh right, whoops. Not into wrestling. I thought I saw someone say it was Hogan and I just assumed he shaved off his goatee at some point.

I can't help but read that title as "New York Minaret," and now I think that this super serious (presumably) action/drama (?) is a comedy based on Muslims in New York, like that Olson twins movie. I also get the feeling that that premise would somehow be less groanworthy than whatever this is.

It isn't, but I was wondering that myself. I guess it's a last minute fail safe; they'd scrubbed any and all references to the Asian girl but welp, audiences, don't be surprised if there are Asian people in this movie.

I mean he even had Asian symbols on his gun. How on the nose do you want us to make it? v v

I just saw the UK version of the Safe poster tonight. Not only has it scrubbed any and all references to the Asian girl, but evidently they've taken your criticism to heart and removed the pictograms from the gun as well. It now contains nothing but Statham pointing a gun at the fourth wall.

Statham + Gun is enough to reel in the audience, I guess. Wouldn't want to do anything to potentially alienate anyone (or hint at plot).

Well clearly Hulk Hogan is only Double-H. He does not have enough H's to be Triple-H. Duh.

When I saw the title I thought it was something to do with the Ground Zero mosque controversy and wondered why the tagline was so... strongly-worded. It turned out it's a Turkish action film

quote:

The film follows two anti-terror officers from Istanbul, sent to New York to find and bring back a Turkish religious leader, codenamed Dajjal, who was arrested in the United States and who will be delivered to Turkish authorities by the FBI. The film emphasizes the rise of Islamophobia in Turkey and the United States after September 11 attacks, seeking to answer the question of whether innocence or guilt even matters to one who lusts for vengeance.

The three names in the posters are not even the main actors.

Not all Chinese/Japanese characters are pictograms. In fact, very few are. They're usually not ideograms either. "Characters" or "logograms" are more accurate.

Here's an interesting story I came across on the internet today.
http://www.businessweek.com/article...years-in-prison

quote:

Kerry Haggard is being called the “Bernie Madoff of the movie-poster industry.” The 47-year-old con man paid an unnamed New York City printing company to make high-quality ink-jet copies of vintage monster-movie posters to sell online, and traded the fake one-sheets with friends and fellow collectors for authentic ones, reported the New York Post.

On April 9, in Manhattan federal court, the Commerce (Ga.) resident was sentenced to the maximum 6.5 years in prison and ordered to pay $1.38 million to his victims.

...

His counterfeit lobby cards and posters included The Mummy, Frankenstein, The Mummy’s Hand, Murders in the Rue Morgue, and Werewolf of London, which were airbrushed and otherwise altered to appear authentic. Using sites like EBay (EBAY), Haggard sold posters for $500 (for a Mummy’s Tomb lobby card, for example) to $5,000 (for Son of Frankenstein) to about 25 victims.

Does anybody collect old movie posters like this? Have you been burned by any fakes?
