New posters for 'Grown Ups 2', 'The Hangover Part III', and 'Europa Report'


There doesn't seem to be an awful lot of anticipation for Grown Ups 2, probably because it looks exactly like the last one, only with 100% more Taylor Lautner. So perhaps that's the motivation behind the latest poster, which hopes to evoke a little nostalgia with flashback photos of Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, and David Spade as young men. The story this time around has Sandler's character moving his family back to the town where he and his friends grew up. Sounds exciting. Grown Ups 2 opens on July 12th.


For someone who has been an integral part of The Hangover trilogy, Justin Bartha has largely been ignored when it comes to marketing. He finally gets a little love with his own Doug character poster. Good news, until you remember it comes after one-sheets for a giraffe and rooster. Doug is at the center of the action again, taken hostage by a villain played by John Goodman until the Wolfpack can locate the missing Chow (Ken Jeong), who made off with a large sum of cash. Mike Epps is back as Black Doug, which makes me think there may be another case of mistaken identity in store.  The Hangover Part III sobers up on May 24th.


Shortly before we see him in Neill Blomkamp's Elysium, Sharlto Copley will head off to deep space for another sci-fi adventure in Europa Report. A film that presents an alternative look at history through a documentary lens, director Sebastian Cordero worked closely with NASA and other pillars of the scientific community to support an authentic approach. Also starring Michael Nyqvist (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Daniel Wu, Anamaria Marinca, Christian Camargo and Karolina Wydra, the story centers on a 6-person crew of astronauts exploring the possibility of alien life on Europa, one of Jupiter's moons. Europa Report hits VOD on June 27th, then theaters on August 2nd.
