Check This Out: Impressive New Get Him to the Greek Poster
I came across this fairly impressive Dutch poster for Get Him to the Greek over on IMPAwards. I'm not particularly overly excited for this movie, but I have been impressed by the trailers and I am looking forward to seeing it. I really dig this poster because it's different than anything we've seen before yet it's got a kind of 80's, classic feel to it. I just love the photo of the room and all the girls strewn about and Russell Brand (as the crazy Aldous Snow) swinging on the chandelier. Perfect arrangement, kind of like The Hangover, and if Universal markets it right here in the US, it could be just as big. Anyway, I've said enough, so check it out!
A record company intern is hired to accompany out-of-control British rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) to a concert at LA's Greek Theater. His only warning: Turn your back on him at your own peril.
Get Him to the Greek is both written and directed by comedy mastermind Nicholas Stoller, the filmmaker behind Forgetting Sarah Marshall previously and a screenwriter for Fun with Dick and Jane and Yes Man as well. Jason Segel is also credited for the creation of the character Aldous Snow. Universal is bringing Get Him to the Greek to theaters everywhere on June 4th this summer. So is this something you'll be seeing?

The trailers don't look all that great, but Jonah Hill and Russell Brand are hilarious, Brand especially. Hell yes I'm seeing this.

Only Four groupies??? Clearly they're not trying hard enough. Though Russel Brand is pretty awesome. And Jonah Hill is ... uh , kind of like , good.

The word "impressive" is thrown around a lot without merit.

I think I appreciate it more because it doesn't look like every other movie poster out there. They could have done a creepy floating head poster, or one of those lame "JCPenny Portrait" posters like 40 Year Old Virgin or StepBrothers... it's nice to see someone actually put some thought into the poster and use something that really encapsulates the film. And yeah, Jonah's legs do look a bit off or something.

Does Jona Hill's character in this film have any connection with his character in Forgetting Sarah Marshall? Or do they just ignore the presence of his previous character?

Jonah's character in this and Forgetting Sarah Marshall are completely different people -- which is a little weird given his character's interaction with Russel's in Sarah Marshall. I saw an early screening of this movie and it was pretty funny. I think it's going to do well.

I'm sorry impressive? Perhaps I am failing to see what is special about this.
