POSTERS

Preview: A Thousand Words (2012)

Synopsis:

A literary agent makes a bargain with a spiritual guru who ties his life to a magical tree whose leaves represent the only words he has left before dying. The consummate liar must keep his mouth shut to avoid expending the last bit of life he has.

  • Poster: D-

Review:

There's a point where photoshopping just makes everything look so unreal that you roll your eyes just looking at it. This poster isn't very eye-catching even if it does "silence" motor-mouth Murphy.

  • Trailer: C

Review:

Your standard Eddie Murphy comedy trailer (well, standard any bland comedian comedy trailer) gives us a handful of funny moments, but wrings all the creativity out of its concept to the point where you wonder if there's much left in it to get excited over.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
