Today we have an example of a decently appealing poster and then an atrocity only something Hollywood could have produced. The former is the first one-sheet for Judd Apatow‘s upcoming “sort-of” sequel to Knocked Up, This is 40, which thankfully forgoes the single character on a vibrant back aesthetic featured in most of his previous productions. Featuring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, we got a disappointing first trailer, but hopefully good things are in store for this one.
Following that we’ve got a seriously terrible effort from Paramount for Jon Chu‘s G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The final poster for the upcoming summer blockbuster is a Photoshop disaster, all while being unspeakably plain-looking. It definitely cements Dwayne Johnson as the lead of the film, along with Bruce Willis, but no look at Channing Tatum. Check out both posters below via Screen Crush and Coming Soon.
Edit: This is 40 poster removed at the request of Universal.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation hits theaters on June 29th, while This is 40 arrives on December 21st.
