Smokey Pineapple Express Poster Fires Up
The first poster for the upcoming summer stoner comedy Pineapple Express has debuted courtesy of JoBlo. While not the funniest poster around, it definitely does look good and hopefully adds some more enthusiasm for this film. I'm already expecting it to be a sleeper summer hit, just like Superbad last year, and have a feeling it may reignite (pun intended) the stoner comedy genre (more to come on that later this week). Without further hesitation, it's time you feast your eyes on this poster.
If you haven't watched the amazing red band trailer for Pineapple Express, then you must go do so right now! You can't look at this poster without knowing how hilarious this movie is going to be. And I agree with the JoBlo guys about he taglines - the original one was better. "One hit could ruin your entire day" was the fist one and now this poster features "put this in your pipe and smoke it."
I'm a bit confused, is the poster trying to mock this Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End poster? Or is there another (horror) movie poster that I'm missing that it's taking off of? Either way, I love the hazy background - what a perfect compliment for a movie about smoking weed!
Pineapple Express is directed by David Gordon Green (of Snow Angels, Undertow, All the Real Girls) and written by the trio of Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Judd Apatow (naturally). Express follows Rogen and Franco as they get stoned, run from cops, crash cars and fire guns. No further explanation needed. The stoner revival begins this summer on August 8th.
