Check This Out: Banned Zack and Miri Make a Porno Poster

The first glorious trailer for Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno finally hit on Tuesday to much enthusiasm and excitement. Luckily I get to see the film this coming Sunday in Toronto, only a short wait. To top off all that hype, we now have the first poster for the film as well - but there's a catch. This poster was banned in the US by the MPAA for it's content and is only being display up here in Canada. Thanks to the wonders of the internet, we got our grubby little hands on a high res version of it that you can see below. The design is pretty catchy and the poses are fairly simple, but it's the gimmick at the bottom that should really set you off. If you don't get it at first glance, just take a closer look at the very bottom of the poster.

Seth Rogen's face actually looks authentic, but Elizabeth Banks' really does not. Her eyes should be rolling, her back arching, and her mouth open enough for moans to come out. I hope all you kids actually understand what I'm talking about? If not, you'll get it one day. How about this for a poster?

    gotta love the simulated oral sex on the posters. how did they get away with that i wonder...
  • Men of Honour
    What SICK movie is this??? Have everybody lost their dignity and respect... Only retards will watch this movie...
  • God Bless Kevin Smith. I have no dignity or respect. And I can bite my own ear. So lets see this damn movie. http://www.youtube.com/AllmightyKeim
  • Rob
    I still think this movie is getting a bit overhyped. Poster is really funny tho, I do wonder how they got away with showing that on a movie poster
  • Josh
    number two is a homo
  • adam
    Good poster, except they used Seth Rogan's head to look like someone doing oral on Elizabeth Banks.......But the the EXACT hair from the FRONT of his head!! makes no sense... Why didnt they just get a photo of the back of a head instead? I do not understand lazyness like that in photoshop... Still, the film looks good.
  • B33
    This is the Canadian poster. It has not been banned as it's not the US poster which is being finalized at this time. Rather misleading title... http://silentbobspeaks.com/?p=379
  • Richard
    Number two Obviously likes wieners.... Its SCience
  • Darrin
    its not that explicit. ok , maybe it is.
  • wetworks
    How they got away with showing WHAT exactly? They aren't showing anything, they are only implying it (and like Alex pointed out, they aren't implying it very well with Bank's pose.) That's a big difference and might just be how they "got away with it".
  • wetworks
    Oh, and of course Canada banned it. It's way too risque for any socialist panzy to look at without prancing about on a tirade about protecting the masses...you know, what with the poorly implied acts of sodomy and all. ...I meant that in a nice way.
  • B33
    I was under the impression Canada let if pass as their typically not offended by sex. Though violence is a rather big issue over there...
  • Hulk
    Right on #2!!! this is ridiculous, stop watching and funding crap like this
  • Kyle A. Koyote
    How did they get away with it? Boohoo...the page even says its BANNED, that implies they DIDN'T get away with it.
  • K
    OMG! What's the big deal people!? It doesn't show anything, grow up. My god, you watch daytime tv and you see a hell of a lot worse on those retarded soaps. And the violence that's on regular tv, let alone cable. But yet kids watch that and it's ok. Ok #2 & #13... you REALLY need to smoke a big fatty boom batty and chill. It's a poster for a make believe movie, something funny to take peoples minds off all the REAL crap that goes on in this world. War, poverty, abuse, environment... I can't believe a poster is getting all this publicity, great for the movie and KSmith. No such thing as bad publicity in Hollywood. But... WOW!!! Just blows my mind man! People (MPAA) and some others really need to get their priorities straight. Relax people it's just a poster/movie. What harm is going to come from this? NOTHING!!! If you don't like it... don't look at it or go watch the movie. For those of us that do... enjoy!
  • Mike Deez
    Man, I dont understan why people are bitching about this movie already (Only reason I could see is if you're a middle age white person living under a rock or communist). This is going to be a great movie and I cant wait, the poster is like the cherry on top. C'mon it's kevin Smith, the one who had a donkey show in clerks 2. Plus what i'm really excited about is the cast; Jay, seth, and that black guy from the office! As a film student I believe these kind of original ideas is what hollywood needs right now because we are too caught up on reboots and comic book movies right now. Thank god for Kevin Smith. Oh and P.S. #2 stick to your sisterhood of the traveling pants 2 and Mama Mia because surely this movie wasn't intended for you and your puritan ideals.
  • Voice Of Reason
    "Seth Rogen's face actually looks authentic, but Elizabeth Banks' really does not. Her eyes should be rolling, her back arching, and her mouth open enough for moans to come out." Seriously? Sure, I'll have what he's having, but throwing in an expectation for a girl to be the sensory-overloaded-harlot-in-heat of your dreams is ridiculous. So, if Rogens face is as true-to-life as Banks' isnt, what you're saying is that you/all men reek of awkward uncomfortability in every sexual act encountered? Geez man, no wonder people stereotype (movie) geeks as sexless clueless losers who wouldn't know the difference between an ice cream cone and a clitoris.
  • Josiah
    serious talk aside (btw it was the US that banned it, not canada READ PLZ) doesn't seth look wayyy too much like jonah hill in this poster?
  • JL
    right on # 18, Why the hell can't people read more carefully instead of skimming over shit. Are they that strapped for time that they can't take a moment. Do they really have to get back to watching their gay porn that bad. Seriously #11 wetworks, Are you too stupid to realize that every bad thing that is said about socialism is more true about the U.S.? Do you ever pay attention. You can't even say ASSHOLE on television without getting the HOLE part bleeped. The ruling party right now is called the 'conservative' party. And they consist of censoring church going satanists who don't want you to enjoy life.
  • JL
    On point, this poster makes me chuckle.
  • LeeMan
    seth rogen looks like such a fatass in this poster, and if they're really doin what we think they're doin, atleast try to make it look realistic
  • Rudy
    I've never seen so much people talk about a danm poster. Banned or not banned, poster is alright, it could of been better. It seem they either got lazy with it or this a butch version of the original... anyway HAIL KEVIN SMITH!!! that's all I got. Thank you for your time
  • Why is it banned?! They didn't ban the Good Luck Chuck poster of the same thing! It was Dane Cook shirtless and at the bottom of the page a head. Here is the link! http://www.impawards.com/2007/good_luck_chuck.html
  • Also, anyone find it funny the next film Banks is in is where she plays our First Lady???
  • Banks just looks happy to be there!
  • avoidz
    Rogan looks like a bum getting a bj next to a dumpster. Banks looks like a Barbie doll with an oversized merkin.
  • Zane Hawkings
    This is the one of the movies where boys and men goes to the theater or buy Dvd's to watch and gets erection that goes overboard... lose their mind and finally ended up molesting or raping innocent women and children.. Pornography or anything relates to it hurts innocent women and children.. Didn't your mother tell your this???? And please stop using the word "Oh my god" OMG if u don't pray or don't believe the existence of god and righteousness ... Don't make your life a dumpster by watching this Crap show... Watch THE DARK KNIGHT instead!!! If you have watched already then go watch it again!!! No harm if you watch it again compared to watching that loathsome porno movie... I have watched THE DARK KNIGHT at theaters 6 times.. I highly support great movies like THE DARK KNIGHT. Superb movie were everybody of all ages can watch and enjoy without hurting anybody....
  • Zane Hawkings
    Two thumbs Up for # 2 , # 13 and #27 !!!! Well at least there are still a few ppl who is lead a respected life.. Happy to hear it :-> ... Well said #27.. clear and straight to the point... Hope some losers out there see's the light and find their way back to the correct path!!!! Wat the heck u don't understand # 16?? Are you stupid???
  • Jason robert

  • Gerard
    Plz don't be so stingy on the money. Invest more money for a better movie experience.
  • Smithy
    Whoooaaa! Its obviously shows wats goin at the bottom of the poster awkward!
  • Zane Hawkings
    #29 u think there's only one Zane Hawking on earth, is it?? Dork!!! Take holiday trip around the world and see how many Jack and Sully are there on earth!! Idiot!!!
  • Ambi purita
    Com on man! I'm looking forward for movies like James Cameron avatar and people com up wit tis rubbish!!
  • Steven
    I think Zane #27 is right. Better put a stop to movies like this. Better stay safe than sorry. Media do have a strong influence at audience alot. What Guaranties is there that no damage is done to the people because of movies like this? There are lots of people in the world lose their minds and wants to try stunts depleted in the movies. Some have die try to imitate it. Stop before its too late. Its time to protect women and children from sexual predators!
  • Sean
    Porn and sex has enter and stayed in the human mind, life and in daily routine. There is only one thing left to do, civilized people going cannibalism. Complete the nutty-job cycle and cause moo chaos. This is sick to the stomach.
  • David coughny
    Relax guy's! Its juz another garbage movie. That's all. Does anybody have virtual trash bins here I can use??
  • D-9
    Seth Rogen = LAME!
  • Dark Padme
    Seth Rogen is great and this movie is going to rock !! chill you guys you really need sex and a laugh!
  • Mike Deez
    #28 serious, I dont understand why your type discredits this film. C'mon your christian values of having every thing PG is not what this country is made of. It's freedom of speech and ideas, Kevin Smith came out with something original and your tearing him up for it. I didnt go to film school and get my graduates degree for your "type" of people ruling whats on the big screen. If you dont like what this movie is going for then dont watch it. No one is pointing a gun to your head and telling you to watch this or watch this movie or the trailer. Oh, and no, I'm not stupid, because if i was stupid i wouldnt be making $95,000 plus a year to watch movies. Just cause you're manager at the DVD section at Wal-mart dosent mean you know what you're talking about. Sorry to tell you but sexual material of films have been around since the early 20th century of the fall of Victorism.
  • JL
    Thank you, #39 Mike Deez BTW, It's not a christian value to try to censor anything. It's a religious attitude and religion is the anti-Christ. And it isn't the business of any one human to try to change the choices and behaviors of others. On that point, It isn't sexually charged movies that make people do violent sexual crimes to women and children. That is all dependent upon the individual. Everyone is looking for a scapegoat because they need somewhere to point a finger when something upsets them. Sex crime is an act of aggression, not sexual frustration. Stop getting that confused. I'm talking to you, Zane #27. And stop pretending. You know you just complimented yourself in comment #28.
  • Men of Honor
    # 39 Mike Deez Doesn't mean that it if u have the freedom of speech or ideas you can come up with anything, or cross the borders.. Everything has a limitation!! That is why rules and laws exist to protect and prevent people from going overboard... If kevin smith came up with something original and I'm accused of being tearing him up, then why i don't i do the samething to these guys when these top shots Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Peter Jackson, James Cameron, Guillermo Del Toro, Micheal Bay, Christoper Nolan and etc comes up with something original????!!! Think!!! Doesn't mean if u earn $ 95,000 plus a year will make you the president of America... Can you go up to the president and say whatever you want since it's the freedom of speech and ideas??? NOOO!!! They will erase your existences from the face of the earth.. Why??? Cause there is always a border to whatever you say, think or do!! Saddam Hussein did everything to the people since he thought there is freedom of speech and idea's and want ever he can do!!! Look what happened to him now!!! Osama Bin laden thought he can deliver a speech and ideas too and do whatever he thinks is right!, look at what happened to him now!!, branded a terrorist and his works despicable acts of evil By the way, what makes you think that I'm a manager at the DVD section at Wal-mart?? You have telepathy senses... I don't even believe u earn $ 95,000, hardly maybe like aaa... $ 150.00 bucks a year maybe... You earn $ 95,000+ a year watching movie and I earned just by directing Lord Of the Rings trilogy and earn billions of dollars!! I'm Peter Jackson and I can say whatever I want. It's the freedom of speech and ideas just like you said.. Ha ha ha
  • Mike levonskiey
    Feeeuuuhh!! Damn it gets too hot in here!!!! Can your guys just leave this debating on good vs evil to the authorities MPAA perhaps!! They are highly educated government professionals with wisdom and knowledge and they know what they are doing.
  • Zane Hawkings
    # 40 JL ( Just Losers) Thanks man for your advice..Very much appreciated. It isn't working at all !!! How can you say I'm pretending ??? I'm not pretending, I'm typing and its real typing, see my fingers on the keyboard and its typing really fast!!! Ha ha. Anyway on the serious side, Whatever I typed is the truth and nothing but the truth and so it is the truth and help everybody god to wake up and smell the Colombian roasted coffee beans or at least the Colombian roasted cocaine !!! I took this line from page 48 of the Book of secrets!!! What u mean u don't understand??!! The secret to eternal life is coffee beans. Its says on the book of secrets. Even the president of US has a cup of coffee everyday for breakfast. Look how young he is!! He can jog fast!!! Soo its coffee for sure!!! Hey wait a minute!! i hav an idea??!! Do you think they will fancy me in for the Joker or the riddler in the next dark knight sequel ?? Nahhh, not a chance!!! They want lunatic people, not lame bloggers in the internet! Woooo!! Long live the Joker!! RIP Heath Ledger..... @>-----
  • christian Fletcher
    Its OK... God wants you all to admit you're a sinner. Judging by what's going on here, I don't think you all need to admit it cause you're all proving by showing one!!! It's proven. Its OK. God forgives sinners and welcomes them into his kingdom. Damn you satan for getting in the way!!!
  • jesus christ
    i hope you bible thumpers die.. tomorrow. that way, you will see the blackness that is the end of your existance.. and know that there is no afterlife.. then you will wish you did not live your life with a stick up your ass, and instead enjoyed it like the rest of us "Sinners"..
  • Matt
    #41 You are seriously pathetic, you come up with this "That is why rules and laws exist to protect and prevent people from going overboard" and then say that Osama & Saddam were branded terrorists because they violated a "freedom of speech" law. You understand that the were branded terrorists and/or terrorist collaborators because of terrorists acts and in Saddams case crimes against humanity. The whole idea of freedom of speech is exactly that FREEDOM OF SPEECH. You should be able to say whatever you want through whatever medium you choose. Why should people like you get to choose what is offensive to society... if it is offensive to you, don't listen! if the rest of society agrees with you they don't have to listen either. If nobody is listening then there can be no harm in what is said.

    At least ice cream cones taste better!

  • Snoogins
    I think that many of us have taken the concept of something that isn't even factual over the limit of all possible thinking and into the demented christian twilight zone. We all just need to realize that no matter how normal something might be to 90% of us, the righteous christian, SUPER WITCH BURNERS, will come and try to smite all of the "SINNERS" with words that they just learned today. Because when you are home schooled, and never spent a day of your life outside of your little cage that mommy kept you in you have some really good people skills then right? Or how about that time that daddy sexually molested you with your priest? Because your priest must have watched this movie first and had his ragind hardon. No the problem here isn't movies. People need something to point their finger at. Why not point your finger up your ass, or better yet just FIST yourself. You would be more productive, and wouldn't be wasting your own time or ours. Yeah i skip around a lot I have ADD ok. There is no fucking way i can make sense of all this shit. Goodbye, and goodluck with that whole christian thing. (Yeah I believe in God, But no i don't believe he is an eternal asshole like all of you seem to think)
