NEW VINCE VAUGHN MOVIE POSTER IS SO MONEY

Posted by Billyjam, February 13, 2008 02:41pm | Post a Comment


In this second part in today's Reworking Previous Proven Marketing Images, I draw your attention to the promotional poster for the new movie by the tallest member of Hollywood's so-called frat pack, actor Vince Vaughn, the just-released in theaters Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show.

To my eye this poster, in terms of  the angle of how its main star is photographed from and how he is  posing for this promo shot, is pretty reminiscent of the poster for his breakout movie, 1996's Swingers (written by co-star Jon Favreau and directed by Doug Liman). Yes? No? I think so and say that they did it to subliminally trigger our memory of its star.

Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show, which is a look at a group of comedians on tour (onstage and backstage) is currently playing in theaters while Swingers is on DVD and for sale at Amoeba Music (just ask if you can't find it). Check a clip of the classic 1996 film below:

ROLLING STONE MAKES THE BRITNEY, KURT COBAIN CONNECTION

Posted by Billyjam, February 13, 2008 07:25am | Post a Comment

  




















Tell me I am not imagining things or reading too deep into a magazine cover when I see the new Rolling Stone cover image of Britney Spears (Inside An American Tragedy) as a not-so-subliminal revisit to one of the magazine's most famous covers from fourteen years ago: the June 2nd 1994 Rolling Stone cover of Kurt Cobain that appeared in the wake of his tragic death. I think its a pretty obvious (and well done in my opinion) reworking of that earlier cover.

But if so, what does it all mean? Nothing, just a way to sell more magazines? (By the way, the Britney story is quite a good read.) Or is it a way of comparing the self-destructive lifestyles of two American pop idols from two different musical backgrounds & eras, and basically predicting that the latest "American tragedy" will end up like the Nirvana frontman, six feet under?

Thoughts? Theories? Anyone? If so, COMMENTS box is below. Thanks!
