The Celebrity Image

Eagerly awaiting the new Indiana Jones movie, "Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" (...catchy title), we were delighted to find a new selection of old Ghanaian film posters, featuring one of Harrison Ford looking as sharp as ever....

In search of more gold, we also found a nice grouping of Belarusian film posters. The delicacy with which such celebs as Drew Barrymore, Jack Black, and Lindsay Lohan are portrayed suggests the Belarusian artists are perhaps not quite sticklers for realism.

A more intentional twist on the celebrity image can be found in the (fairly) new Top Trumps cards, Hollywood Zombies, again featuring a less than flattering rendition of Barrymore.

Re. New movie
It cant actually be called kingdon of the crystal skull its so long, titles seem to be so long now. Whatever hapened to short titles, and whatever happened to short films? i remember when a film was 90 mins long, most of the classics were.
