Check This Out: Funky Observe and Report Poster
A few weeks ago we debuted the hilarious red band trailer for Observe and Report, the upcoming comedy from director Jody Hill starring Seth Rogen and Anna Faris. Today we've got the official poster for the film (courtesy of IMPAwards), which features a pretty stern looking Rogen dressed up in his security guard uniform, and that's about it. It's pretty simple but that's probably because Warner Brothers doesn't really know how else to market this, since it's as R rated as comedies come. I think they're also trying to make fun of the Paul Blart: Mall Cop poster, and the tagline is pretty good, too. If you're interested check it out.
At the Forest Ridge Mall, head of security Ronnie Barnhardt patrols his jurisdiction with an iron fist, combating skateboarders, shoplifters and the occasional unruly customer while dreaming of the day when he can swap his flashlight for a badge and a gun. His delusions of grandeur are put to the test when the mall is struck by a flasher. Driven to protect and serve the mall and its patrons, Ronnie seizes the opportunity to showcase his law enforcement talents on a grand scale, hoping his solution of this crime will earn a coveted spot at the police academy and the heart of his dream girl Brandi.
Observe and Report is both written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Jody Hill, of only The Foot Fist Way previously. The film was shot on location at the Winrock Mall in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Warner Brothers will debut Observe and Report in theaters everywhere on April 10th, 2009.
