First Poster for Judd Apatow Produced 'Bridesmaids' Has Attitude
We've been hearing about Bridesmaids from writer Kristen Wiig and producers Judd Apatow and Paul Feig ("Freaks and Geeks") for a little while now. Fortunately, the first poster doesn't make this look like your average wedding comedy as the bride (Maya Rudolph), maid of honor (Wiig) and bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) are lined up with attitude. With Apatow's raunchy, male-centric comedies like 40-Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up & Superbad highlighted at the top, I think it's time for the women to have some fun this time around. Check this out!
Here's the first sassy poster for Bridesmaids courtesy of Moviefone:
Bridesmaids is directed by Paul Feig, of feature films I Am David and Unaccompanied Minors, but he has a lot of TV directing work on shows like "Arrested Development", "The Office" and "Nurse Jackie". The story follows Annie (Kristen Wiig), a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids on a wild ride down the road to matrimony. Can Annie keep her personal issues at bay while she tries to plan the perfect wedding? Find out when Bridesmaids hits theaters on May 13th, 2011. Thoughts?

Rose Byrne seems to be the only one without a skanky facial expression. Second from left looks like Baby Spice. And who's the beast on the far left?

Okay, ty, that's not anorexia, that's just what a healthy, lean, tall woman looks like. And she's definitely do-able. voodoo2, that beast on the far left is Sooki from Gilmore Girls. Yeah, that's right, I've watched a little Gilmore Girls. Got a problem with that? But, yeah, couldn't agree more about Rose Byrne. She's the only truly hot one there. Ellie and Kristen are alright, but I wouldn't call either one hot, exactly. Anyways, to stay on topic, this could be funny. I mean, Kristen Wiig in the writer's chair and produced by Judd Apatow, someone who's proven himself in comedy movies several times, means this has pretty good potential.

i'm not a fan of apatows films (except for superbad) but this has potential.

Yeah, this doesn't look typical at all...that's sarcasm Ethan. not sure you'd get that since you seem to think this poster sends all kinds of "not average" signals.

Never said it was horrible poster or that the movie will suck 'cause it's a chick flick it's about as original a blonde pop star.
