New posters have arrived for the Coen Brothers’ True Grit and Rob Letterman’s Gulliver’s Travels.  The True Grit poster would be impressive except for the silly, cheap looking “bloodstain” on it.  Why would a poster bleed? If it weren’t for that, it would be one of the best posters of the year.  Instead, it’s one of the cheesiest.  If you want to be sold on the film, check out the amazing trailer.

The Gulliver’s Travels poster is more of the same: Jack Black being tied down by Lilliputians.  If you didn’t know anything about that movie (and there’s only been one awful trailer), these posters would lead you to believe that it’s about a fat man who has a very specific bondage fetish.  Hit the jump to check out both posters.  True Grit stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin, and opens December 25th.  Gulliver’s Travels also stars Jaosn Segel, Emily Blunt, and Amanda Peet, and opens in 3D on December 22nd.

Here’s the official synopsis for True Grit:

Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him — over his objections — to hunt down Chaney. Her father’s blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.

And here’s the synopsis for Gulliver’s Travels:

Jack Black stars in the 20th Century Fox adaptation of Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels with this fantasy-filled comedic production. This take on the timeless tale revolves around a shipwrecked journalist (Black) who discovers an island in the heart of the Bermuda Triangle where he is the biggest occupant in comparison to its tiny inhabitants. Shark Tale’s Rob Letterman directs from a script by Forgetting Sarah Marshall’s Nick Stoller and Joe Stillman (Shrek).
