Watch the “Milk” trailer and contemplate how many Oscars you think Penn might receive.
- The U.K has a bone to pick with “Wanted” - The U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has ruled that movie posters for the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller “Wanted” glamorize guns and violence and must be banned after receiving somewhere around 17 complaints. “We acknowledged most viewers would understand the posters reflected the content of an action film. However, we considered that because the ads featured a glamorous actress, action poses, several images of, or related to guns and aspirational text, they could be seen to glamorize the use of guns and violence,” the ASA said in a statement.
- Zack and Miri Make a Porno Poster Banned - If you’re interested in seeing the poster for Kevin Smith’s new film, you better book a ticket to Montreal, Toronto or Vancouver, because the only place you’ll be seeing it is in Canada. Though Smith won an appeal earlier to overturn the film’s NC-17 rating, the MPAA has declined to have the poster out and about in the good ole’ U.S of A. Naturally, Smith is ticked off. “When you’ve got the word ‘porno’ in the title, naturally, the marketing materials are gonna be scrutinized more closely by the MPAA,” Smith said. “I understand they’ve got a job to do, but c’mon…this image isn’t that dirty; they’re both fully clad.”
