With the project getting a brand new (and rather stunning) trailer, Woody Allen’s upcoming film, MIDNIGHT IN PARIS has now just gotten a brand new poster (thanks to Yahoo!). And I must say, it’s not half as impressive. The film stars a who’s who of a cast, including Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen, Adrien Brody, Nina Arianda, Corey Stoll, Mimi Kennedy, Kurt Fullerby, Carla Bruni, and Léa Seydou, and will be the opening film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

While I do think the poster is massively eye-catching, and for a poster that’s really an important attribute, but it ultimately just doesn’t really make for the most intriguing piece of promotional material. The film itself is easily one of the most highly anticipated of the year, and will likely make for one hell of a Cannes premiere, but this isn’t quite the poster a film like this deserves.

Check out the full poster, along with a new one for THE HANGOVER PART II, after the break.

In other poster news, we’ve gotten a brand new one sheet from the film's Facebook page for the upcoming film, THE HANGOVER PART II, and it’s going to make fans of the franchise super excited. It is a really visually interesting poster, but ultimately, I find it hard to get too excited for a sequel to a film that I genuinely didn’t jive with in the first place. However, the poster has a lot of things going for it (evil-looking monkeys are always great and a welcome addition), so for fans of the franchise, this will work like a charm.
