Classic Car Talk!

The new Gatsby poster adds some polish to the car movie poster.

The Catcher in the Rye Returns

Anybody who went to English class in the past sixty years or so has probably read J.D. Salinger’s classic coming-of-age novel, The Catcher in the Rye (below, right).

Hudson Hawn!

Like mother, like daughter — or, if Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson were a tag team wrestling duo, you could call ’em Hudson Hawk Hawn (not to be confused with Raquel Welch-port or Barbie Aniston)! Although neither family members have set the box office on fire recently, their history of romantic comedy movie posters are solid Gold-ie!(IMP)
