Critics and the media has accustomed viewers to perceive the Cannes film festival as a showcase of elite art-house film with famous Directors and talented actors. However, it is not just a meeting place for the cream of the film industry, but also a market where distributors try to sell to rent movies sometimes not the best quality. To understand how — just look at the posters of several pictures presented at the festival this year.

This is the third part of the American franchise of the rabbit-killer. All that viewers need to know about the new film, written in large letters on the poster: «Based on real events». It is hoped that those faced with the news about the killer with a chainsaw, dressed in a rabbit costume, the picture will interest. Everyone else will have to stretch the imagination and to be content with a description claiming that this is a hybrid horror film «Friday the 13th» and stories about the Easter Bunny.

The case when the name speaks for itself. The creators of the movie for U.S. cable channel Syfy, specializing in sci-Fi series, had done a similar trick with the previous film «Asolando» (product cross sharks with a tornado). In Cannes, they came from horror movies about killer bees generated a giant wave. The plot is almost as absurd as the poster: three groups of survivors of the devastating tsunami that swept Los Angeles to meet even more nightmare — insects-mutants. It is unclear, however, how do bees have experienced a natural disaster and what’s a comet, but it is not so important in the face of the end of the world.

Despite the fact that the film was shot in South Africa, the name is similar to the American television sitcom «Man seeking woman». But the poster refers to a second-rate comedies, who annually flock to the cinemas. In the description of the genre of painting is defined as family romantic action, but the slogan «Baking is always better when you’re in love» suggests that the action in the film will be about the same as in the program «Relish».

The Thai «police Comedy» with the promising slogan «Big cops. Thick cops. Crazy cops» tells the story of four sergeants, who will, in parallel, to deal with Bank robbers and being overweight. The dramatic intrigue is whether the cops to lose weight to put the time to save your work. To help a pretty teacher of Zumba. Judging by the poster, the case also involved a lot of animals.
