Eddie Murphy's A Thousand Words poster is a crime against design

Feb. 20, 2012by: Alex Riviello

What the- what the hell is going on here? Who approved this?

Not only did the trailer for Eddie Murphy's A THOUSAND WORDS look awful, but then they go and release this.... collage, basically. Black Film had the exclusive on this abomination.

What happened to Eddie Murphy's comeback? Could it possibly be that hard for him to find good roles? He was on a roll that few comedians could ever hope to top back in the 1980s (and DELIRIOUS is one of the all-time great stand-up specials) but the man hasn't done a halfway decent comedy since BOWFINGER. 

Let's not forget that A THOUSAND WORDS is directed by Brian Robbins, of NORBIT, MEET DAVE, THE SHAGGY DOG and GOOD BURGER; the film was sitting on a shelf for the last four years until someone at Paramount finally decided to squeeze it out.

We'll see if the film can make a thousand bucks when it hits on March 9th.

HOOOOOLY FUCK! Who goes to an Eddie Murphy movie to watch him not talk? That should be a Chris Tucker film.

Good Burger was cool, but starring in Norbit and Meet Dave should have already been a warning for Eddie to stay away from this film.

I don't see anything wrong with the poster itself but considering how this movie has been shelved, the only reason it got a release was when Murphy was tapped to host the Oscars.

Say what you will, but I love Good Burger! One of my favorite childhood movies.

It's not great but actually, I like it.
And I say this as a guy, who designs posters.

I'm loving the fact that where his left elbow is, there is actually a piece of collage that is nothing but the top of a bush.

Brian Robbins: I dont f'n get this guy...

I dont understand how he could do one of the most underrated dramadies of the 90's, Varsity Blues, then do a WHOLE BUNCH of shitty flicks after that. Him and Dennis Dugan (Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, then all that other garbage that came next) should shack up.
