They’ve released two new posters for Thor, a we remain disappointed by how bland the whole thing looks. And they couldn’t even be bothered to use different photos of the four supporting roles? Were they rushing this for some reason? The movie comes out May 6.
Woody Allen’s new film, Midnight in Paris, finds Owen Wilson in a love triangle with Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard—poor little fella. Why the poster uses Van Gogh’s Starry Starry Night, which depicts a village some 400 miles from Paris, as a backdrop is anyone’s guess.
Fast Five -- not much more to say, is there? The film arrives April 29.

We are loving the poster for The FP, and we just watched the trailer (which does not pass muster with standards and practices around here), which has left feeling awed. It’s surely the greatest Dance-Dance Revolution gang film ever. It just showed at SXSW, but awaits a release date—VOD, anyone?
Another outstanding poster, this one for Rubber, about a tire—yes, a tire—that goes on a murderous rampage after seeing how humanity treats his kind. In limited release April 1.
If only Super was as good as the posters they’ve been releasing, like this one of Ellen Page as Boltie. The movie opens April 1.
Daydream Nation is named after a classic Sonic Youth album and stars Kat Dennings—how bad can it be? This story of a girl caught in a love trainable with a stoner classmate and her teacher opens May 6.
With each and every thing we see from JJ Abrams’ Super 8, the more excited we get. This poster is just about perfect. The film arrives June 10.
Your Highness goes the character poster route, probably because they couldn't figure out how to convey Medieval Stoner Comedy on a poster that would be acceptable to theater owners. It opens April 8.
Phil, Stu and Alan appear to have lost track of Doug once again, this time in Thailand, in The Hangover 2, which comes out May 26.
MMA star Gina Carano knocks the snot out of Ewan McGregor in Steven Soderbergh's upcoming action film, Haywire, about a black ops agent out for revenge after being betrayed by her colleagues. It's due in August.

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn
nThe release of the first collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson is a year away, but anticipation is still high. By way of /Film come three new images from the motion-capture 3D saga.
Mo-cap, as in Polar Express, typically creeps us out, but Jackson used it to great effect to create Gollum for his LOTR trilogy, so we're reserving judgment.
That aside, we remain annoyed by the coy refusal to let us see Tintin's face in the clear light of day. C'mon, guys... We'll have to wait until Dec. 28, 2011.

My Week with Marilyn
nWe love Michelle Williams, but have to agree with the conventional wisdom: she's about a "Super-Size Me" diet away from having the right build to play Marilyn Monroe. The film, about Monroe's time shooting opposite the great Laurence Olivier, arrives 2011.
