Here’s the official synopsis for The Great Gatsby:

The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

Here’s the official synopsis for A Good Day to Die Hard:

Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane, for the first time, finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack–unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes discover that their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes.

Here’s the official synopsis for A Haunted House:

In an outrageous send up of the Paranormal Activity movies, The Devil Inside and other “found footage” movies, A HAUNTED HOUSE features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship… or, more importantly, his sex life.

The synopsis for Escape from Planet Earth:

The 3D animated family comedy catapults moviegoers to planet Baab where admired astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) is a national hero to the blue alien population.  A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy, by-the-rules brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA.  When BASA’s no-nonsense chief Lena (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Gary’s warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission.  But when Scorch finds himself caught in a fiendish trap set by the evil Shanker (William Shatner) it’s up to scrawny, risk-adverse Gary to do the real rescuing.  As the interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira (Sarah Jessica Parker) and their adventure hungry son Kip.

      I’m mainly just shocked by how different Isla Fisher looks…that looks nothing like her, I never would have guessed in a million years that that was her. But yes, the pictures fall in line with the whole ad campaign that I think is best described as…very odd. The people in charge obviously are at a loss at how to market this movie. Bumped the movie from December to May and they still don’t know how to sell it.

    This post is one of the greatest WTF post ever. Not bagging on Mr. Trumbore here, he’s just giving us the day’s scoop, but these posters are seriously wacked. I don’t know who thought it was clever that The Great Gatsby posters should have mother-board for it’s background, but it paints a pretty priceless picture; executives giving notes on how Gatsby (the film) needs to connect with the ‘internet generation’, and then some poor hack coming up with this. Seriously funny. Next we have A Good Day To Die Hard… I really don’t have to say much about that. Are they even shooting that? The whole thing kinda feels like a fan hoax. A fan hoax with shitty photoshop skills. Then we come to Scary Movie Part Six. I’m not going to bag on this one because I’m pretty sure that’s what they were going for. And finally we have ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH! Who cares. So all and all, tis a sad day for movie posters.
