Brothers Grimm

Grimm times for the movie making industry calls on desperate measures. Bring in a supernatural tale of monsters and demons, and add Matt Damon as their vanquisher and you could just entice audiences back to the theater going experience. The Tale of the Grimm Brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm, originated in Germany as 2 story telling siblings captured the hearts of children in Europe. The tale of the Brothers Grimm has been told over and over, on streets, stage and later on film in 1963. Remaking this account of the real life story tellers has Matt Damon and Heath Ledger traveling through Europe, scamming villagers into believing that the supernatural is out to get them and only the Brothers Grimm can protect them. Eventually, myth becomes reality and the sly duo is put to the test when a true power confronts them.

By far the hottest selling poster right now at movieposter.com is the regular one sheet for the documentary on the Emperor penguins of the Antarctic, March of the Penguins. This film appeals to children of all ages and despite the brutal heat, cools the soul as it depicts the migration and mating patterns of the gentle birds.
