What if they labelled movie posters more accurately?

I’m a firm believer in truth-in-advertising. So, I really enjoyed this imaginative romp from Iveta Pete and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.

“Movie posters don’t always tell it like it is. And that’s probably a good thing, at least for the people who make them. After all, would you pay to watch a film called ‘Young Woman Needlessly Degrades Herself To Be With Complete Arsehole’? How about ‘Liam Neeson Punches People’, or ‘Channing Tatum Takes His Shirt Off Again Or Something’? Ok, so maybe some of you would still pay to watch that last one.”

What if Tim Burton directed Disney movies?

From Andrew Tarusov and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.

“My name is Andrew Tarusov. Originally I was born in Ribinsk, Russia, but now I’m living in Los Angeles, California. My general occupation after 10 years of studying is art and animation.

Being a huge fan of Disney classics, I imagined how our favorite childhood movies could look if they were directed by the great Tim Burton. Pretty interesting, huh?”

Celebrities as Disney Characters (fun!)

Apparently, I’m on a Disney kick lately. Any way, the pictures taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz of celebrities as Disney characters from http://likes.com/celebs/celebs-as-real-life-disney-characters are stunningly composed, and really tickled my fancy and floated my boat. Enjoy.

This photo of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens must have been taken when they were still dating… Cute nonetheless!

Keira Knightley looks amazing here as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.
