    Let the Toronto presales begin

  2. Edward Wilson says:

    Is that supposed to be a 40 oz. or something? Cause it looks like a liter of Diet Coke…

  3. David Poland says:

    That would be 2 liters of soda, EW.

  4. krazyeyes says:

    The blurring on the Diet Coke label is very distracting plus i’m not sure I get making the poster look like a book cover.

  5. Edward Wilson says:

    I don’t drink soda. I wouldn’t know these things.

  6. anghus says:

    why is one 2 liter soda bottle (the one in her hand) the old rounded style and the one on the night stand the newer old-school coke bottle shaped plastic bottle.

    this is weird.

  7. hcat says:

    The book cover is a little too cutesy but I do like the image. All the caffine containers surrounding a bottle of Grey Goose give the impression that she crossed that age where severe hangovers are still bearable yet she is not yet giving up the lifestyle.

    Jennifer’s Body > Juno. Here’s hoping Young Adult > Jennifer’s Body.

  9. Don R. Lewis says:

    The book cover is because the main character is either a person who gained popularity for writing teen fiction for girls or was a popular teen fiction writer as a teen, I can’t remember which it was.

    The term “young adult” is a lit genre, and so the parody book cover is a brilliant marketing design.

A statement from David Chase’s representative, Leslee Dart:

A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying,“ Tony Soprano is not dead,” is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true. As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, “Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point.” To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of THE SOPRANOS raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer.

“By the time the sounds of the Von Trapp children warbling ‘Silent Night’ drift through The Giver, you may find yourself wondering what fresh movie hell this is. In truth, the enervating hash of dystopian dread, vague religiosity and commercial advertising-style uplift is nothing if not stale. Adapted from Lois Lowry’s book for young readers, the story involves an isolated society that, with its cubistic dwellings, mindless smiles, monochromatic environs and nebulous communitarianism, seem modeled on a Scandinavian country or an old Mentos commercial.”
