Tame First Poster for Bobcat Goldthwait's Wild 'God Bless America'

January 18, 2012

God Bless America Poster

Taking out the trash, one jerk at a time. Magnet Releasing debuted the first official poster for Bobcat Goldthwait's new comedy God Bless America, starring Joel Murray and Tara Lynne Barr (seen on the poster). The two realize they're fed up with American culture and decide to don weapons and "take out the trash." Unfortunately the tagline is the best part of this poster, because it's otherwise a very tame, lame, uninspired design for a film that I think deserves much better. Just look at this photo from the film! You can do better, Magnolia. This is a wild, crazy, hilarious film (my TIFF review) and I hope we see better posters.

Bobcat Goldthwait's God Bless America

Loveless, jobless and possibly terminally ill, Frank (Joel Murray) has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and decides to off the stupidest, cruellest and most repellent members of society with an unusual accomplice: 16-year-old Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. From stand-up comedian and director Bobcat Goldthwait comes a scathing and hilarious attack on all that is sacred in the United States of America. This premiered at TIFF last year, and was picked up by Magnolia Pictures. God Bless America is available on VOD April 6th, and in theaters May 11th.

    Photographer -Okay look completely affect-less. No, less than that. Still less, we're going for an almost bored expression here. Barr- Boom, nailed it. That being said, I'll probably catch this.

    Not lame at all!

    jail bait waiting to happen. 
    All I saw was the director's name is "Bobcat". Awesome name.
