I saw the movie poster for the upcoming Mud movie and thought, hmmmm... That looks familiar...



That is Matthew McConaughey looking off to his right, showing a gun while lifting the side of his shirt...

Next up, you may recall this one, is Mark (Marky Mark) Wahlberg in a similar pose. Looking to his right, and lifting his shirt to show a bunch of money... Yeah, that is because he already has his gun out.



The lack of originality in "Hollywood" both on screen, in scripts, in directing styles, movie promos and posters, etc just shows how un-creative the folks in "Hollywood" are any more.

Actually, I really have no point to make here, I just thought it interesting that they were similar photos.

The difference is quite clear: Matthew is holding the pistol in his right hand, while Mark is holding the pistol in his left.

Dang, you guys a RIGHT. Wow. I can't believe I never saw those differences before. I feel so enlightened now, and happy that I can feel that Hollywood IS in fact creating original work.
