Misc.: Possible TLO poster, Daniels on Paperboy, at WB, and more from the LAFH Awards  
A lot of people have seen via twitter there is a test screening for The Lucky One tomorrow evening. Thanks to actionvaughn, we have an ultra low quality cap of the poster version they used in the invitation.

Bear in mind, we have no idea if this is a finalized version or just some mock up for temporary use, so please don't advertise it as official.

Precious and soon-to-be The Paperboy director Lee Daniels did an interview with 'The Georgia Voice', an LGBT media outlet, in anticipation of his attendance at the 24th Annual Atlanta HRC Dinner on May 14th. The article briefly mentions The Paperboy (highlight for potential spoilers):

Daniels' next project is “The Paperboy,” which is based on the novel by National Book Award-winner Pete Dexter. Daniels describes it as “a love story between two brothers,” where one learns to accept that his brother is gay.

From what I understand, I think Ward is the latter. ETA: The Paperboy is Jack, the younger brother, and that is who Zac is expected to play. It is unclear who is playing older brother Ward, but based on age, my personal guess is Tobey.

Zac was reportedly at WB yesterday Friday (per twitter):

E! Online's Marc Malkin posted a tiny blurb on the LAFH Awards:
That was Zac Efron on Thursday at the 2011 L.A. Family Housing Awards at the Music Box Theatre, where he mingled with event chair Warner Bros. exec Blair Rich and actress Cody Horn, among others.

As jeezbee pointed out in comments, Zac was actually on the event committee for the awards alongside WB marketing exec Sue Kroll, The Lucky One producer Denise Di Novi and event chair Rich. Cody Horn is not just an actress but also daughter of Alan Horn, former WB President and COO.

Yup. I hope I get around to it soon... I have it already but didn't find time yet to start.

I'm just glad that Zac's next book adaption seems to be from a decent book and not another cheesy melodrama. Idk if I could take reading another one of those. :)

I'm still trying to get through The Lucky One. I think I'm finally past the boring stuff. It's beginning to get a bit more interesting.

Temporary mock-up or not... it seems they have been using the same poster designer for this as for all the other Sparks movies though. :|

Taylor's legs are awkward and... oh well, I save the rest of my commentary for something more official than this.
oh my god; that crazy bitch.metrocard on May 17th, 2011 05:13 pm (UTC)
I swear to god, they use a template that allows them to select a scenic background and a serif font with two clicks of a button.

Yes! And this one looks especially pasted together. Like he looks good and, minus the awk legs on Taylor, she looks good but the background is so unmatched. That's why I hope it is just a mock up.

It is really sad because cheesy movie or not, there probably are some legitimately beautiful shots in the movie they could use instead.

No kidding. Although, this is the awkward version of that template.

Just wondering but where did Taylor say this https://twitter.com/ehs_wildcats/status/70290731331371008 and https://twitter.com/ehs_wildcats/status/70290992011554816 ?

lol sorry for the confusion... that is my friend named taylor, not taylor schilling.
MirandaZanessaFan2010 on May 18th, 2011 02:01 am (UTC)
Okay, thank you.
Cause I just saw Taylor, and it was about Zac, so I just assumed. I'm sorry.

The poster could be better, but it's certainly better than any of Charlie St. Cloud posters IMO. At least it well represents what the movie is about. It's perfect for Nicholas Sparks book cover.

LOVE Zac's short hair!!

ohh the paperboy sounds interesting
and it would be really interesting and a great career move for him if he were to be playing the brother who is gay

butttt it wouldn't help with the people who seek fun in speculating his sexuality (which is annoying and unnecessary)

I do think the poster is formulaic and kindred to a Sparks film. Not sure whatever happened to just using a nice still from a movie as the poster. I was telling C earlier the only time photoshopped/spliced type of promo shots work is usually with a comedy (Wedding Crashers, 17 Again, etc).

It's certainly not Z'OMG terrible, but leaves little breathing room for individuals outside of a very specific target audience to jump on board.
