poster convergence: ‘Legion’ and ‘Tooth Fairy’

Two movies opening on the same day (in North America, at least), and both feature fantastical winged creatures. Coincidence… or magical intervention?
In these desperate times, when change we can believe in seems far away and hope is waning, can we at least count on our flying imaginary friends for comfort? Shall we embrace the succor offered by Paul Bettany as a warrior for God? Or should we turn to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as an enchanted pixie who invades the bedrooms of our innocent sleeping children?

(More coincidence: On January 22, Bettany also opens in North America as Charles Darwin in Creation. Which film do you think mainstream American audiences will like more: the one in which he plays an angel? or the one in which he plays the bastard who killed God?)

These posters also raise puzzling questions, like: Why does an angel need a machine gun? And why does the Tooth Fairy need hockey skates?

I had the same reaction as LaSargenta: ROFL
Also:
THE TOOTH HURTS…………….
……………….
………………this movie will suck.

That’s honestly what I inferred reading this. What’s that even supposed to MEAN? Is there some sort of truth, or TOOTH, as it were, that will be discovered here? Will it be a painful “tooth” that will “hurt” upon revelation? Is it that a big burly man is the Tooth Fairy OMG SO SUBVERSIVE.

Not.

There’s a movie coming out in which Paul Bettany plays Friedrich Nietzsche?

Maybe it means that HOllywood can’t wait to make fun of itself so the parady comes out at the same times as the original?

Ok, now I really DID spit all over my keyboard!

It *is* nice to have readers who know who Nietzsche is.

This is like
Armageddon vs Deep Impact
or
Paul Blart : Mall Cop vs. Observe and Report
all over again.

Nah, Tonio, it *was* Darwin who killed GOd. Nietzsche wrote GOd’s obituary, though.

Nietzsche, sure, but who’s Paul Bettany?

That’s why I used to laugh at Who Wants to be a Millionaire, because I usually got all the midrange questions but hadn’t a clue about the “easy” ones at the beginging.

…who’s Paul Bettany?

As an AICN casting announcement might say: “PAUL BETTANY IS DARWIN!!!!”
