Fortunately in these days of viral video, TV trailers and iTunes, the tagline of a movie is a bit of a novelty – which is just as well, given that the art of the tagline seems to be something that is long lost. Nevertheless, OTB have once again been searching the annals of movie history to find a few taglines that are, frankly, awful. At least most of these are from quite poor films; ones that most people wouldn’t have been tempted to see even if Shakespeare himself had written a verse on the poster. Or maybe that wouldn’t have helped. Taglines written as metaphors wouldn’t make the situation clearer…
So not only have you remade a film, made it terrible and actually released it, you came up with this tagline too? Next time, don’t spend all your money on effects.
If you don’t want people to bother seeing your film, why not advertise the ending as an anticlimax?
Indeed. Also water is wet, fire is hot and this film is awful. All facts.
This leaves us with some pretty serious numerical holes to fill between 10 and 13 now, doesn’t it?
He also shoots bullets with his eyes, can travel through time and is now, bizarrely, working as a deputy sheriff. None of it, however, saves this film. Or makes this poster any clearer.
This should never have happened. Sexual innuendo and children’s cartoons have no place together.
It just makes no sense. Rather like casting Vanilla Ice in a film. Having said that, at least they’ve been consistent.
And fortunately Paul Newman was a big enough star to pull in audiences even though the movie’s selling point was his gender.
Things get very confusing when you use an actor’s name in the tagline. Especially when he’s not playing himself.
Fuck off, Shyamalan.
