    Is Roald Dahl not a recognizable enough name? He must be known as the author of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”? Never mind Matilda, BFG, James and the Giant Peach…

    Agreed Jake. Half-irritating, half-strange.

    And unnecessarily wordy. They could have made the whole red section twice the size if it were “Based on the book by Roald Dahl.”

    But I’m not the one getting paid.

    I think they should be required by law to put “From the author of ‘Switch Bitch'”. Just for fun.

    Thank God, I thought I was the only one irritated beyond belief by the Roald Dahl thing. And that was back when the trailer came out.

    Absolute retardedness.

    I guess it’s just me, at this site, but I actually wouldn’t know who Roald Dahl is if someone approached me on the street and asked me who he is. The “author of” any of those titles evokes a lot more in my mind, as I assume a layman, than his name.

    It’s sadly understandable. Not everyone’s favorite book was “The Twits” growing up I guess.

    I’ve known who Roald Dahl since I was a child. Maybe it’s because I’m British.

    I wonder if the wording on the British poster will be different.

    Is Cate Blanchett no longer involved with this movie?

    Meryl Streep may have replaced her? http://theplaylist.blogspot.com/2009/04/has-meryl-streep-replaced-cate.html

    It seems weird how small Wes Anderson’s name is compared to the author-whose-name-will-not-be-revealed line is. If they’re not going to have Roald Dahl’s name on there, wouldn’t it make sense to have Anderson’s name bigger? idk.

    Too many stupid comments in one post.

    I think it looks quite good. Wes Anderson is an outstanding director.
