Misleading Movie Poster: Surrogates (2009)

surrogates1angie__oPt.jpgAt first glance you might think Surrogates starred Angelina Jolie, but shockingly she is not even in it! I hate to link to Perez Hilton, but he makes a great point here. Being a huge fan of Angelina Jolie this entire marketing campaign is kind of a slap in the face. I was totally geeked when I saw this poster last week. I thought that maybe I missed the boat and just happened to overlook the fact that she was in the film. It was only just revealed to me that my primary assumption was incorrect. I think it is a cheat to use her likeness. I don't think there is any denying that it looks like her. That would be hard to argue against. I wonder what she has to say about it...

Update (9:37pm): I just read that this poster for the film depicts a David Beckam's likeness. I still do not approve of these tactics!
