Superhero poster

02.27.2008
I treat chimp-simple parody movies much like slaughterhouses, emergency rooms, Oprah and domestic beer: I'd prefer to avoid them. Initially I thought SUPERHERO MOVIE might be different, since director Craig Mazin already successfully (in my opinion) handled spandex satire with the low-cost indie THE SPECIALS.

Unfortunately, then I saw the trailer and now this poster, and realized it was basically aimed at the same double-digit IQ audiences that gobbles this shit like cookie dough. But my opinion ultimately makes no difference, since it's bound to generate more wealth than I'll probably ever see (without making something similar).

As H.L. Mencken said, "No one in this world has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people." But as Leslie Nielsen's shirt said, "With great power comes hot bitches." The logic is clearly irrefutable.

Extra Tidbit: In addition to being well-paid, Mazin has also become notoriously outspoken in Hollywood's writing community.

Does Leslie Neilsen have ANYTHING better to do than these (____) MOVIEs?

Bugh, I didn't even look at the whole poster and I'm disgusted.

WHAT A LOAD OF NOTHINGNESS

I've had it with these fu*kin' spoof flicks. Honestly, I loved Scary Movie 1, hated 2, enjoyed 3 and 4. Then Date Movie came out and it was lame. I almost slept during Epic Movie. I didn't give a rat's ass about Meet The Spartans...and now this load of sh*t comes out? How many times can you spoof the X-Men? After a while, it gets lame. And doesn't Leslie Nielsen have a real job? What happened to him making better movies? Ones that could actually make you laugh and not puke your breakfast out.

I'm watching this flick years later when there's nothing else to watch at 3am in the morning.

At least Anna Faris finally was able to leave this crap. The rest of the Scary Movie crew probably had a sigh of relief that they still have jobs.

I saw the trailer.. it wasnt as bad as I thought.. Id prefer to see that over Meet The Spartans and I feel that it will at least be better that Date Movie and Epic Movie, the only thing to hope is for it to be better than the Scary Movies. And yeah, the poster sucks, and not only because it's horribly similar to the scary movie ones but because it just plain sucks.

I like it

The only parody line I've continued to enjoy was Scary Movie. I liked the writer/director change for 3/4, as I love the main crew's sense of humor and have loved it ever since the Airplane! days.

I just watched the Superhero Movie trailer, and this one actually had me giggling rather than rolling my eyes. I'm giving it a chance, I like the cast, I like the writers/director - I think this has potential. I just wish it had a better name as to differentiate itself from all of the other

Hooahh!

This movie looks pretty terrible.

However, the fact that I get to go to pretty much every mainstream movie that comes out for free and am never frowned upon for bringing my own liquor or beer on slow nights, I'll probably still watch this.

Hopefully I'll be able to pull a triple feature akin to my Rambo-Meet The Spartans-Cloverfield endeavor. That night Absinthe had become legal to sell in the US and 2 friends and I made the best of my bottle. Meet the Spartans sucked, but I was

Meet the Spartans sucked, but I was drunk, no one was in the theater, and we approached it in an MST3K fashion. Good times.

So, is the Scary Movie franchise no more? Because, really, that's the most rip-off poster I've ever seen. With the same featured cast (sans Anna Faris) it seems just a continuation or a true spin-off (unlike Date or Epic Movie).

Oh, well. It's still going to suck major ass.

me too i like the poster for some reason, it reminds me of Scary Movie 1 (and dont ask me why it doesnt remind me of Scary Movie 2 to 4 even though is basically the samae poster design, but it doesnt)
however, im sure the movie is gonna suck based on the horrible trailer, and the chances i see it are very slim

a new spoof franchise

When I saw this poster I knew this would be a new superhero spoof movie franchise, first there were the scary movies, now superhero's, the only Scary Movie I liked was the first one, I guess I'm easily amused since for some reason I actually like this poster, It catches my attention, Scary went up to 4, how many superhero films will we get, more than 4? we'll have to wait and see...
