Savages, Lola Versus, What to Expect When You’re Expecting and The Dictator Poster Round Up
Watch out, poster flood! While several movies grace the big screen this weekend, we get a glimpse of a few more films that are scheduled to be released at some point this year through their posters.
The first of the posters is the charming new Fox Searchlight Pictures film ‘Lola Versus‘ starring Greta Gerwig. Not only did the new poster get released, but so did the first official trailer which you can check out here.
Lola, a 29-year-old woman dumped by her longtime boyfriend Luke (Joel Kinnaman) just three weeks before their wedding. With the help of her close friends Henry and Alice, Lola embarks on a series of desperate encounters in an attempt to find her place in the world as a single woman approaching 30.
Now we go into the crazy comical with Sacha Baron Cohen in his new movie ‘The Dictator.’ It’s always interesting to see how the overall design of Cohen’s characters continues to get more outrageous, whether it’d be in hair and/or fashion, but what really sells is how funny they can be. We’ll just have to wait and see the hilarity, or possible lack thereof, when ‘The Dictator’ hits theaters on May 11, 2012.
The heroic story of a dictator (Sacha Baron Cohen) who risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. Take a look at the new poster for ‘The Dictator’ below, thanks to Empire Online.
Now we’re getting into some awesome Oliver Stone action over here with ‘Savages.’ The trailer just debuted yesterday, and everybody’s been blown away by the style, action and overall intensity that the movie brings. Will this be the next best Oliver Stone movie? It all depends. But it doesn’t hurt to be excited. Sneak a peek at the poster below.
Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Aaron Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Taylor Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry — raising some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beautiful Ophelia (Blake Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town…until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them.
When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Salma Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Benicio Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon — with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (John Travolta) — wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.
Lastly we touch upon our favorite kinds of posters, the heavily Photoshopped ones! The latest movie to fall victim to the latest craze is Lionsgate’s ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting‘ which stars Cameron Diaz, Brooklyn Decker, Elizabeth Banks, Jennifer Lopez and Anna Kendrick. Take a look at the poster which shows off a pregnant version of Brooklyn Decker who looks like she’s about to fall over. With the way that Jennifer Lopez is acting in the poster, it appears that she’s aware of the sudden gravity change too.
Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules (Cameron Diaz) and dance show star Evan (Matthew Morrison) find that their high-octane celebrity lives don’t stand a chance against the surprise demands of pregnancy. Baby-crazy author and advocate Wendy (Elizabeth Banks) gets a taste of her own militant mommy advice when pregnancy hormones ravage her body; while Wendy’s husband, Gary (Ben Falcone), struggles not to be outdone by his competitive alpha-Dad (Dennis Quaid), who’s expecting twins with his much younger trophy wife, Skyler (Brooklyn Decker). Photographer Holly (Jennifer Lopez) is prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child, but her husband Alex (Rodrigo Santoro) isn’t so sure, and tries to quiet his panic by attending a “dudes” support group, where new fathers get to tell it like it really is. And rival food truck chefs Rosie (Anna Kendrick) and Marco’s (Chace Crawford) surprise hook-up results in an unexpected quandary: what to do when your first child comes before your first date?
