The recent news that a woman has decided to sue Hollywood studios due to the fact the she considers the trailer to Drive misleading has been met by bemusement by most people who are, well, sane. False advertising has been a staple in Hollywood since time immemorial and the majority of people are well aware that trailers contain either all the best bits of the film or are edited together in such a way as to make it look a lot better than it actually is.
Just what would the movie business do if it all its advertising was forced to be honest? The comedy forum Cookd and Bombd have already glimpsed into that terrible future and created some Literal Movie Posters which really do what they say on the tin. So just take a look at what would happen if the posters really said what they showed.
