- Blake Lively in Dia de los Muertos makeup - you'd only know it was her if you'd seen other advertising for the movie.
- Aaron Taylor-Johnson looking grown up and scruffy and intense.
- Taylor Kitsch, willing you with the power of his stare to forget basically his entire film career but especially his last two movies.
- Salma Hayek almost completely obscured in shadow.
- John Travolta
- Benicio del Toro's face half-covered by what looks like a motorcycle face mask with a skull print.
In this one-sheet, you can see all of the starring actors well except for, I presume, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, whose baby blues are peering from behind a calavera-patterned helmet. The existence of this poster makes me feel that I could have been making something out of nothing when I look at the other one, but I feel like there are many contractual and social reasons behind imagery and billing in film advertisement. Taylor-Johnson is probably the least famous of all the faces on the poster, but the trailer leads me to believe that he has a bigger role than Lively - these things all come into play when the actors deals are made.
So what do you think? Am I making this up?
