False Advertising: Poster for LOVE & DISTRUST “Starring” Robert Pattinson, Robert Downey Jr., and Sam Worthington

While Steve was busy snapping photos at the American Film Market (AFM), he grabbed a shot of a surprising poster for Love & Distrust.  The film boasted a star-studded cast featuring Robert Pattinson, Robert Downey Jr., Sam Worthington, Amy Adams, and James Franco.  Somehow, we had never reported on or even heard of this movie.  Of course, there was the standard note in the corner about “Credits Not Contractual”.  They may not be contractual, but they can certainly be misleading.  Hit the jump to check out the poster, and to learn why you’ve probably never heard of this movie and why buyers should beware.

After doing a bit of research, I discovered that Love & Distrust is already available to own on DVD in UK.  Here’s the official synopsis:

Featuring a host of Hollywood A-listers, including Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga, Remember Me), Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, Sherlock Holmes) and Amy Adams (Sunshine Cleaning, Enchanted), Love & Distrust is a heartfelt tale of the passions and perils of love in all its forms. Split into five stories that focus on the lives of a group of beautiful yet troubled twenty-somethings, Love & Distrust explores the dark heart of romance, the secrets we can never tell and the heartache it can cause. Battling temptation and the pull of seduction, the fight for love can never be easy.

But the reader reviews tell a different story:

KJ 79 says:

I bought this collection of 5 short films due to the fact that Robert Pattinson and Robert Downey Jr starred. However, they appeared for approximatley 5 seconds each! Really wish I had not wasted my money.

I bought this DVD of 5 short films only because Robert Pattinson and Robert Downey Jr starred in it. However, they appeared for approx 5 seconds each and i was HUGELY disappointed! I really do wish I had’t have bothered or even wasted my money! Just be warned, … its not what you expect it to be !!! G.x

indanthrone says:

This is a compilation of 5 movies. One of which is “The Summer House” With a short appearance by Robert Pattinson. The DVD has quite a misleading description and cover. Makes it look like Rob is starring in a film with Robert Downey et al. MMM. So the only part Rob has is in it is the short role he had in “The summer house”. Just letting people know who may have it already.

In all fairness, the word “distrust” is in the title.  Here’s the poster Steve found at AFM.  Click on the image to see a larger version:
