Starpulse reports that Christina Ricci is apparently still very unhappy with the way the movie "Black Snake Moan" was marketed:
"The way that movie was marketed was probably one of the most disappointing and upsetting things that's ever happened to me in my career. I have no interest in exploiting women any further than they've already been exploited. The whole reason I made that movie was to say, 'Oh yeah, that girl you called a slut probably went through this, so you might not want to use her and throw her away or judge her. All they (marketing bosses) cared about was college-age boys going to see it."Specifically, she has an objection to the movie posters, which she felt missed the point of the whole film and were exploitative:
The DVD packaging gets it a little more right:
Jesus, how can you have two completely different types of copy like that?
"Everything is hotter down south"
"To save his soul, he must save hers"
Ah, I love marketing... (and badly done Photoshop!)
