Poster Musings: When Celebrities Take Over

Are you excited about New Year's Eve? It's the sort of sequel to last year's Valentine's Day! Lest you forget, Valentine's Day ended up making more than $110 million in North America last year and more than $215 million worldwide. So of course, there's a sequel! Like the first film, it's chock full of celebrities who somehow decided it was a good idea to be part of this venture. Really, look at how the poster displays them proudly and awkwardly:

The poster is pretty standard and unexciting, two standards the film will surely live up to. The dismal Valentine's Day at least had the imagination to frame all the celebrity mugshots inside a heart! Look:

Note that Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Biel starred in both films. Seriously? Just... seriously? Doesn't that just tell you just everything you need to know? And to make matters worse they are not even playing the same characters! What's the point? Though to be perfectly honest, this latest film will probably be slightly better just for the fact that it'll have one great character the first film didn't: New York City. I'll rent it just for that. Though if you want to see New Year's Eve in theaters (why?), it comes out just in time for the holidays.
