Starring Dev Patel as a puppeteer whose creation wants to douse his hair-fire by prying open Patel's mouth

The kid really wants to feel Patel's spray-on beard.

Obviously, the child should be reaching up towards the Rotten Tomatoes coin. Missed opportunity.

On covers, I think studios don't credit "Academy-Award Nominee" above the name for the film in which they were nominated

At any rate, contracts for how stars are billed are finalized long before awards nominations.

It would be interesting if someone could write into their contract a future clause that they'd have to be billed as nominated for the film in the event they were nominated

I hope they give equal time to the stories of the opposing soldiers in that one.

Shouldn't it be "Les Miz"?

The Miz and the Smackdown Job Squad. It's pretty smart of Vince to do this though. There are many unused wrestlers in the back on every show so this will get them some exposure.

I read that as "Jabbers" and couldn't figure out what this has to do with GG Allin other than looking like shit

For future reference: "jobbers" refers to wrestlers who's occupation is to make the more important wrestlers look good on television. Today these guys are more like JTTS (jobbers to the stars), guys who have their own characters and personalities. As opposed to the old days of Barry Horowitz and the Mulkey Brothers, who were just paid to lose and nothing else.

It seems like one of the few highlights of a Trump presidency is educating fellow film enthusiasts on wrestling jargon.

That lower font reminds me of No Fear shirts from the mid 90s

"Imagine Funny Games' iconic poster, but with a skidmark across the middle of it and Naomi Watts inexplicably smelling her fingers"

It's bad but honestly probably an improvement over the US one-sheet.
