Don't ask us why movie marketers do what they do but when the trailer and poster for "Arthur" recently landed, the film's love interest, indie film sensation Greta Gerwig, was nowhere to be found. Well, Warner Bros. have rectified that situation with a new, horribly Photoshopped poster that crams Gerwig in there and even she gets her name at the top of the poster. Guess the indie thesp is moving on up.

Don't ask us why movie marketers do what they do but when the trailer and poster for "Arthur" recently landed, the film's love interest, indie film sensation Greta Gerwig, was nowhere to be found. Well, Warner Bros. have rectified that situation with a new, horribly Photoshopped poster that crams Gerwig in there and even she gets her name at the top of the poster. Guess the indie thesp is moving on up.

The film stars Russell Brand in the titular role as the spoiled (and apparently no longer drunken) playboy, with Helen Mirren playing Arthur’s put-upon nanny and Gerwig as the girl who forces Arthur to choose between marrying for money or love. Jennifer Garner and Nick Nolte also star with Garner playing an heiress Arthur must marry to retain his fortune, while Nolte plays her deeply religious father. Yeah, we can't say there is anything we're really looking forward to in this one but at least Gerwig is finally get her due in her first major studio project.

"Arthur" hits theaters on April 8th. Check out the poster below. [ComingSoon]
