Alice Foulcher Stars in Official Trailer for Indie Comedy 'That's Not Me'

"You think I'm talented, don't you?" The Orchard has debuted a trailer for the indie comedy That's Not Me, a quirk story about a struggling woman from Australia who has to take an "underwhelming" job at a local cinema after failing to get any acting gigs. Aussie comedian/actress Alice Foulcher stars as Polly, and the cast includes Isabel Lucas, Richard Davies, Belinda Misevski, Rowan Davie, and Andrew S. Gilbert. Here's a more specific synopsis for the film: "Constantly mistaken for her famous identical twin, an aspiring actress decides to use her sister's celebrity to her own advantage. What begins harmlessly enough - free clothes, casual sex - ends with disastrous consequences for them both" because her twin sister makes it famous before she does. This played at a bunch of festivals last year and seems like an amusing little indie. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Gregory Erdstein's That's Not Me,

30 Awesome Fan-Made Comic Book Movie Posters

Richard Davies

Movie posters can end up being as iconic as the movies they are actually marketing. Who could forget the shark approaching the surface to take out the girl on the Jaws poster, the screaming and helpless female victim on the Psycho poster, the terrifying “Here’s Johnny” face on the poster for The Shining, the lonely astronaut on the Gravity poster and the solitary rose on the American Beauty poster, for a few examples?

It generally takes a great poster to make the grade as one of those used in any given movie’s marketing campaign, as potentially hundreds of artists and graphic designers pitch ideas to studios to have theirs considered for usage – but it isn’t only professional designers who get in on the act when it comes to producing movie posters.

The buzz around movies encourages fans to get in on the act. Any movie
