Well i wouldn't mind if that was in fact the art work. I like it. They should keep that as the artwork.

I hate when the names on the cover do not match the picture.

Steve Zahn was the luckiest guy in the world in this movie.

The order that the names appear on the poster is a contractual obligation and you'd be amazed at how much intensive negotiating goes into it most times.

That said, it's particularly odd the way this cover is designed, almost intentionally placing the wrong name directly on each actress's body.

Has anybody seen this yet? Does the movie live up to the (not final version) cover art?

It was okay. I saw it in theatres a week ago and liked it... for a matinee. The first 20 minutes are a disaster. I got the feeling that someone decided that they wanted to "get to the good stuff" as soon as possible and just put a chainsaw through the whole first act. The movie literaly jumps all over the place before the girls finally team up.

There's a scene where Salma witnesses an old prospector get killed. The scene just suddenly happens when in the previous scene she was at her father Hacienda. In fact, she comes across as an unwilling guest of the old man, suggesting that there was a whole sequence that got cut out that would explain why she was there in the first place.
Stuff like that happens a lot during the first 20 minutes. After that, the movie is great zany fun. Here's hoping some sort of extended cut shows up later on.

As for the cover, I like it.
So there's simultaneously a super secret team of giant robots and a super secret team of technologically enhanced super soldiers, and neither team knows about the other? The governments in these movies must be far more effective than our actual government. Well, damn it, I want some realism and mature adult themes in my giant robot and super soldier movies! - Suprmallet

You can say that again...
I'd like to see Johnny Depp direct a movie about Tim Burton directing a movie starring Johnny Depp, in which Johnny is directing a film about Danny Elfman, who is composing the music for a new Tim Burton film starring Johnny Depp.....playing Danny Elfman.
