'Arthur' Poster Is Actually Scarier Than The New 'Scream 4' Poster

New posters have arrived for a remake and a sequel, both of which, frankly, look dreadful and neither one-sheet has their intended effect.

New posters have arrived for a remake and a sequel, both of which, frankly, look dreadful and neither one-sheet has their intended effect.

First up, we're not sure we understand the poster for "Arthur." Is the movie some sort of comedy about Magritte? Once again, where is Greta Gerwig who, as Hollywood Elsewhere confirms, is indeed the love interest in the film? Are we gonna have to start some kind of WhereIsGretaGerwig tumblr meme (like that Arcade Fire thing) to get the word out? Because after the truly terrible first trailer, she's pretty much the only reason we're going to bother seeing this thing.

As for "Scream 4," another quasi-ironic tread through horror tropes, a new poster with Ghostface arrives, except it has a blade like a knife. Ooooo. Man, when are they gonna get the real Ghostface and put him in one of these movies? We'd pay to see that. Posters below. [IMPA/STYD]
