New Pic & Daytona 500 Footage From 'The Three Stooges' Reveals Kate Upton Is The New Marketing Plan

You can smell the fromage from here, and while many are already gleefully rubbing their hands together for "John Carter" to tank (we think it might underperform, but won't be the "Waterworld" disaster some are predicting) this writer thinks the true flop of the spring might just be "The Three Stooges." Boasting a cast of nobodies except for that one guy who used to be on "Will & Grace" and an antiquated sense of humor that clearly has not translated well to the big screen, Fox made a pitch to middle America this weekend that featured the three leading men and two boobs.

You can smell the fromage from here, and while many are already gleefully rubbing their hands together for "John Carter" to tank (we think it might underperform, but won't be the "Waterworld" disaster some are predicting) this writer thinks the true flop of the spring might just be "The Three Stooges." Boasting a cast of nobodies except for that one guy who used to be on "Will & Grace" and an antiquated sense of humor that clearly has not translated well to the big screen, Fox made a pitch to middle America this weekend that featured the three leading men and two boobs.

Combined with the new image that dropped last week, it seems as if Fox has just said, "Fuck it, let's hope people want to see Kate Upton's boobs." And given how much print the newest cover model of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition has been getting, we suppose there are worse ways to go about getting people to see this we suppose. Oh sure, the Datyona 500 apperance has some (tedious) slapstick from Larry, Curly and Moe, but there is no mistake why the cameraman (accidentally) zoomed in on Kate Upton. It's just a reminder for all the armchair-dwelling, Bud-drinking dudes out there that This Hot Chick Is In The Movie.

Anyway, you can see it all below. Be warned, it's even unfunnier than the lowest moments of the Oscars last night. [MovieWeb/WhoSay]
