There are a bunch of new posters this week, and easily the most striking of the bunch is the painted image for The Wolfman, created by legendary Famous Monsters of Filmland cover artist Basil Gogos. CHUD got the image as an exclusive; you can see part of it above, and click through for the full thing. It’s not my favorite Gogos by a stretch, but like his best paintings it is grotesquely colorful in a way that points a direct line to the cinematography in films like Suspiria. The fact that Universal got him to work with their remake is a great thing.
After the break, the poster for Kevin Smith‘s Cop Out, a new domestic poster for Mother, character sheets for Percy Jackson and The Crazies, and a great poster for a tiny, weird Danish post-apocalyptic Western called Connected. Read More »

We just recently covered the first trailer for Kevin Smith’s latest film, Cop Out — a film whose original title, A Couple of Dicks, was gathering similar controversy to Smith’s previous Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Fans pushed hard for Smith to stick with the title since it was announced, but we always knew that the studio could change their minds at any point. We even knew about the safer placeholder title, A Couple of Cops, which was to serve as a last resort if they couldn’t sell the film with otherwise.
But instead of that bland filler title, we got the ironic Cop Out. And now we finally know how, exactly, Smith decided on the title.

This week, there will be no news, only trailers! Kevin Smith has always written his own movies, until now. When he signed on to direct A Couple of Dicks, for Warner Bros., eventually retitled Cop Out, the project was an interesting move, if nothing else.

The other day, Kevin Smith revealed that after a very lengthy decision process beginning with Warner Brothers deciding to drop the title of his new film A Couple of Dicks, then deciding to keep it, in the end the film would lose its original, double-entendre-worthy title. But what would the new title be?
Now, evidence has surfaced that the title of Smith’s new film may, in fact, be Cop Out. Hit the jump for what we know.
