‘Love & Other Drugs’ poster

Posted by · 10:20 am · September 16th, 2010

We’re all still waiting to see what kind of an effort Edward Zwick’s “Love & Other Drugs” might be.  From the trailers we’ve seen so far, it looks like a frothy comedy with dramatic stylings.  Early word on Anne Hathaway has been positive throughout the year.  A new poster has been released and it’s properly suggestive, I suppose.  It’s actually  been out there for a week or so now, but I’ve been waiting for a higher quality image.  Have a look after the jump and tells us what you think.

    Reminds me of the “It’s Complicated” poster. I think they’re even using the same bed.

    What the fuck is up with Anne’s face? Worst photoshop job of the year?

    It feels a bit uninspired given creative possibilities with the title.

    This poster is confusing me. Anne Hathaway seems to be doing her best Meg Ryan-this-is-a-rom-com-face, meanwhile Jake appears to be stuck in a cancer movie. Am I reading too much into this or is the poster really as problematic as it seems? On the other hand, it could be as simple as it looks, maybe Annie farted and Jake is disgusted and mortified.

    Pretty disappointing b/c it looks like they are trying to sell the film to the lowest common denominator and not attempting something more interesting or creative. I will say the trailer had me really excited about the film so I will still definitely see this film but the poster is really uninspiring.

    How does Jake sitting naked (yum) with his hand over his mouth suggest a cancer movie?

    If the film is half as funny as the reactions to the poster, I’ll consider seeing it.

    Funny stuff Lindsay & Leo.

    This poster will attract a lot of foot fetishists to the film. That one I’m sure.

    This is one of the best posters I’ve seen in years- it reminds me of the ” Bob, Ted , and Alice ” movie poster. It has the feel of those great sex comedies of the past- like “Shampoo”.

    I can’t understand why so many people have to criticize this film’s poster?
    is it because you think the trailer giving too much so you think you know what the film is about? or is it because the early word has been so nice to Anne about her performance while only little have seen it so you think it’s not fair? or is it people now set their standard too high so comedic theme is not oscar worthy and it has to be about rape, abuse, depression, Chistian saves the world, or directed by famous names? is it all mentioned above?

    The trailer was really good. It gives me excitement to check out the movie..

    But this poster kinda implies a typical chick flick… Hope it’s not… They could have made use of the word “drugs” in the title… The movie poster could have been better… Oh well Anne is as beautiful as ever..

    Still looking forward to the movie though…
