New Movies: Caption Me, Bee-yotch!

Posted By on Fri, Aug 16, 2013 at 2:44 PM

Every week I choose still pics from new movies to place on our Showtimes page. Some of those stills are just crying out for creative captions, but, sadly, the studios do not supply them.

You could, though! Check out these images and suggest your own captions in the comment section. The reward for good ones will be ... uh, nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada. But, hey, that's also how much snark costs!

P.S. Apologies for the title of this post. I've been watching too much "Breaking Bad" this week.

So, what's new in theaters?

At the top of this post is a still from Jobs, starring, you guessed it, Ashton Kutcher. Your caption?

Personally, I'm going for: "Hey, think anybody will mistake me for Affleck in an Argo sequel and give me an Oscar?" Lame, I know. You can do better.

I also like this image from Kick-Ass 2, though I'm not sure what the hell's going on. That's where a caption might help.

Also in theaters: A big-business thriller called Paranoia starring Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman and some younger, cuter actors because this is Hollywood. An Oscar-baity drama about a Butler who spends decades in the White House, played by Forest Whitaker, brought to us by the director who made Nicole Kidman pee on Zac Efron.

And, only at the Savoy in Montpelier, Amanda Seyfried plays porn star Linda Lovelace. Sounds like we'll be seeing lots of '70s lapels and Spandex this weekend.

 

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
