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.

Observe and Report Poster

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.

    I hope thats only the US poster. Outside of America that would just look unappealing with the whole US looking uniform.

    Something about saying 'The World Needs a Hero' and then seeing Seth Rogen's face makes me chuckle. Followed closely by a shudder at the thought of him being humanity's last hope...
  • Zandhu
    oh fuck... another Mall Cop??
  • I don't like it very much. It looks like a mug shot, like a cop turn villain. Don't like it at all.

    "Right now, the World does not need more mindless shit from Seth Rogen"
  • peloquinfan
    "Right now, the World needs a Hero" Hell yes it does, and the ignorance wants to promote this sort of tripe? The tag line is most offensive.
  • Slipstream
    DAMN! Number 7 stole my thunder. Incredibly offensive tag line. Seth Rogen, go away!
  • I'm not offended by the tag line, just by the whole concept. Paul Blart was already a satirical comedy, so making a satire of a satire? Unlikely. This looks exactly like WB blowing Paul Blart and hoping something good comes out of it. The real story here might be what OBSERVE AND REPORT was before the release of PAUL BLART, and what it became (editing, makreting) immediately after the success of that movie.Still I like the WB right now and I'm focusing on THE WATCHMEN and not this. With the superlative BATMAN movies, HARRY POTTERS, THE CORPSE BRIDE, 300, SWEENEY TODD, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, GRAN TORINO, (and I personally enjoyed POSIEDON - so THERE!), and more, I'm willing to forgive the incompetent crap like A SOUND OF THUNDER, THE ISLAND, THE ASTRONAUT FARMER, WICKERMAN, INVASION, etc.

    Feo is so full of it. The mere fact he says he liked Posiedon just shows you his credibility. ZERO!
