    At first this is really feels like a bad joke with all this text reminding one of bad designed DVD cover art.
    On second look I find it quite cool. The part about real sex is hilarious.

    I think it’s great. It’s about time a poster actually used this sort of stuff to its advantage. There once was a day when a line like “the most shocking film in history of the cannes film festival” would be the central focus of a marketing campaign.

    They failed to mention it contains hack filmmaking.

    who has “real sex”? are they confusing this with “idiotern”?

    damn, the amount of people kissing this film’s ass I will have to put up with next week (when it opens here in Rio) will push my patience to its limits!

    A nice, simple, effective design that would have worked even better if the imagery suggested an upside-down cross more typically associated with the Anti-Christ. Oh well.

    Fernando: This past July. It’s the UK poster.

    And “real sex” is the censors’ term, not the marketers’ (though they’re clearly quite pleased with it).
