Dreamworks has released a new poster for Ghost Town that, thankfully, doesn't have an insane, nonsensical slogan. It does, however, provide evidence that Greg Kinnear may have some kind of opaque head clause in his contract.
God, Sixth Sense references: so hot right now.
Ghost Town Poster [IMPA]
After the worrisome poster that ended up being a fake, it's nice to see something from Ghost Town that doesn't include a giant, seemingly insane quote. "This is the best script I've read in years" actually makes sense as a quote, and I'll consider it an encouraging endorsement despite the hammy photo at the top. Summary!
In Ghost Town, Ricky plays misanthropic Bertram Pincus, who dies temporarily whilst under the knife.
His thump with mortality yields a phantasmic if not fantastic consequence; Pincus gains the ability to perceive the ghostly remains of the deceased. He is not happy about this as they are apt to bother him. One in particular needs Pincus's to help break up the impending nuptials of his widow and her replacement squeeze.
Plus, if you look in the largest shot, you can see how they've found an impish, bizzaro version of longtime Gervais collaborator Stephen Merchant to stand beside the bed. How could this go wrong? (Many things could go wrong.)
New Images from GHOST TOWN [IESB]
In Extras, Ricky Gervais plays a character disappointed that his starring sitcom had gone the route of lowbrow humor and catch-phrases. In this poster for Ghost Town, Ricky Gervais poses as if preparing for a rectal exam beside a catch-phrase larger than his torso seated just above the traditional bold red lettering of every broad comedy poster in the last five years. Is this the irony I've heard so much about?
UPDATE: Commenter Marclavis has pointed out that Gervais discredits the poster on his blog, saying:
There is an awful fake poster for Ghost Town going around. It is fucking dreadful and nothing to do with me or anyone else concerned. It's a screen grab of me with a slogan that makes no sense. Please don't fall for it. Good. Let's move on.
Agreed on all counts.
