Ten Terrible Movie Posters

  • Cinelinx
Movie posters are an important advertising element for a film. But what happens when they don't do such a great job in promoting their film?

Movie posters are supposed to be the first and most prominent promotional tool of a film. Many times movie posters may be the first official material released for a film production as well as the first opportunity that the film has to reach its potential audience. That makes them very important. Like trailers, they are meant to capture your attention. Unlike trailers, they are not supposed to give too much away. There are various techniques that have been used over the years to accomplish this task including bright colors, eye-catching fonts, and the prominent inclusion of big name stars’ faces. Graphic design as well as a general nod to the production design of the film are important components for every movie poster. Before the advent of computers,

Chris Kattan Charged with Drug DUI
Chris Kattan has been officially charged with driving under the influence of drugs following his arrest on February 10, with the maximum penalty for the first offense of DUI being six months in jail and a $1,000 fine, plus penalty assessments.

Earlier this month, Kattan, 43, reportedly crashed his car into a Department of Transportation maintenance truck on the 101 Freeway that was parked on the shoulder for maintenance work around 2 a.m., CBS Los Angeles reports.

The California Highway Patrol report also said that a woman had apparently called 911 to report that the comedian's Mercedes was "weaving all over the roadway at slow speeds."

Kattan was reportedly not injured in the crash, and was able to exit his car.

According to the Chp, he appeared to be impaired and was then taken into custody for driving under the influence and booked at Van Nuys Jail.

Chris Kattan Busted for DUI

He cracked fans up as a wannabe party animal in “A Night at the Roxbury,” and now Chris Kattan may have taken things too far in real life.

The “Corky Romano” actor was arrested in Los Angeles early this morning (February 10) after he crashed into another vehicle while.

According to the Lapd, neither Kattan’s car nor the other ride was damaged, but Chris was in fact arrested for driving under the influence of prescription medication.

A concerned citizen called 911 after observing that Kattan’s Mercedes Benz was “weaving all over the 101 Freeway at slow speeds” around 2am.

Robert Pattinson gets soaked on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'

Robert Pattinson gets soaked on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'
Rounding out a long day of promotions for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 yesterday, Robert Pattinson visited Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and got wet. Soaked, even. Yep, Pattinson went on the show to discuss a few things about his life - like the fact that he unknowingly dissed country superstar Brad Paisley in Nashville recently and he peed his pants watching Corky Romano - and the movie before playing a little game of "Water War." View slideshow: 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' Kristen Stewart, who'd appeared on the show the night before, was challenged to a harmless game of giant quarters, but Pattinson's game involved a simple deck of cards, a few cups of water and one giant super soaker water gun.

See Robert Pattinson Get Soaking Wet And Talk About Peeing His Pants On Fallon

Honestly, do you even need us to write words here? Probably, we should just shut up and let you watch Robert Pattinson get drenched, even as he wins his Water War game with Jimmy Fallon on Late Night. But maybe after you enjoy the above clip a few times, you will also want to entertain yourself with the many funny things we learned from his appearance on the show. Things such as the fact that Rob is a Corky Romano superfan.

“I love that movie; I would say that’s one of my top five favorite movies,” he said of the Chris Kattan comedy. “That’s the only time I’ve ever genuinely peed my pants … from watching a movie.”

And while Fallon and the rest of us recognize Rob as a really funny guy, he said that if he ever did a comedy, he’d like a little help.

Keith Carradine Joins Rooney Mara In ‘Saints’; Fred Ward Adds ’2 Guns’ With Denzel Washington

In the business of older white male character actors getting jobs, we’ve got two this afternoon. First up, with production beginning on the drama thriller Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Keith Carradine has been added to the impressive ensemble already including Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster and Nate Parker.

Newcomer David Lowery will make his debut here, in the tale of an escaped convict in the ’70s named Bob Muldoon (Affleck) who must confront a dark past in order to reunite with his wife (Mara) and daughter. There’s no news on who Carradine will play, but the actor is always a welcome addition. Here’s hoping that Lowery can succeed off the bat, as he’s surely already got the cast to back him up.

We’ve also got news from Variety that Fred Ward has joined the ensemble of the actioner 2 Guns, set to be directed by Contraband‘s Baltasar Kormákur,

Kristen Wiig: What are the 'SNL' Mvp's career prospects?
Kristen Wiig made her final regular appearance on Saturday Night Live last week with a moving send-off that was grander and more heartfelt than the sketch show has given a cast member in quite some time. With half a dozen film projects in the works, Wiig is poised to launch into a long, successful career on the A-list. But then again so was David Spade, Jimmy Fallon, and Tina Fey. While those SNL vets have all flourished in television, Wiig has made no move toward the small screen, and it’s harder to become a bankable star on the level of Will Ferrell,

Peter Falk obituary

Us actor whose success as the scruffy TV detective Columbo was complemented by a wide range of stage and screen roles

Show-business history records that the American actor Peter Falk, who has died aged 83, made his stage debut the year before he left high school, presciently cast as a detective. Despite the 17-year-old's fleeting success, he had no thoughts of pursuing acting as a career – if only because tough kids from the Bronx considered it an unsuitable job for a man. Just 24 years later, Falk made his first television appearance as the scruffy detective, Columbo, not only becoming the highest paid actor on television – commanding $500,000 an episode during the 1970s – but also the most famous.

Inevitably the lieutenant dedicated to unravelling the villainy of the wealthy and glamorous dominated his career, although – unlike some actors – he escaped the straitjacket, or in his case shabby raincoat, of typecasting. In addition to stage work,

The 20 Funniest Men in Movies... Right Now

In honor of The Comedy Awards, airing April 10 on Comedy Central, NextMovie is unveiling a series of features on Hollywood's funniest films and folks.

Between YouTube, Upright Citizens Brigade, and half the cast of "Freaks And Geeks" creating world-famous superstars, there is a literal glut of talent coming through the comedy pipelines, which as metaphorical as they are could probably use some kind of filtration system.

That's where we come in. We're here to give you the skinny on the 20 most uproariously irreverent, maniacally twisted, ingeniously brilliant (male) comedic movie stars out there (see our picks for top 20 funniest women here).

20. Michael Cera

Taking exasperated wimpitude to new heights, this wee 22-year-old Canadian took the big screen by storm in 2007 with the twin successes of "Juno" and "Superbad." The latter teen comedy showcased Cera's deadpan to maximum effect as the ultrasensitive Evan, who sets his phaser to "flustered" when the

Liam Neeson Is Ready To Sink Your Battleship!

Well, maybe it’s not the board game… but Liam Neeson has signed on to play the role of Admiral Shane in Universal Pictures new film Battleship. Also joining the cast will be Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights), Brooklyn Decker (Ugly Betty), Rihanna, and Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood). I don’t know how I feel about this mash up, but my fingers are crossed!

The premise of the film is that the planet is up against some sort of powerful force and Admiral Shane and his crew are out to win the battle. (Simple enough, right?) Directed by Peter Berg (Hancock, Smoking Aces, Corky Romano), it is scheduled to come out on May 18th, 2012.

'Eclipse' Criticism, The 'Toy Story 3' Cast And Wimbledon In Today's Twitter-Wood
Snooki and the "Eclipse" cast may be jazzed about the new "Twilight" sequel's release this week, but Chris Kattan is not impressed, assuming his Twitter post today was meant to be sarcastic. If it wasn't meant as sarcasm, he may have just declared himself to be one of the biggest lovers of sparkling vampires in all of Twitter-Wood.

Few celebs have dared to trash "Toy Story 3," meanwhile. Christopher Mintz-Plasse wrote down some thoughts after seeing it, and director Lee Unkrich shared a photo with a few of the film's voice actors. Meanwhile, almost everyone else in our feed has been watching Wimbeldon or the World Cup. You can check out some match reactions and the jump along with another use Linsday Lohan has discovered for her iPad and Rainn Wilson's suggestions for the war in Afghanistan

The Stanley Cup, The Cmt Music Awards And IMAX 'Eclipse' In Today's Twitter-Wood
The fun part about watching Kevin Smith's hockey tweets is that that he's actually a fan of the sport in general, as opposed to just the New Jersey Devils. Jeremy Piven and Dave Coulier, meanwhile were a little more explicit with their praise last night when the Chicago Blackhawks took home the Stanley Cup.

Some country music performers took home some accolades last night, too, over at the Cmt Music Awards. David Spade and Snooki saw some friends while they were there from the looks of their tweets. Check out who they were hanging out with after the jump along with a shot of Julia Roberts and a glimpse of what "Eclipse" looks like in IMAX.
