Some new posters have been released today for some great upcoming titles including, Seth Rogan’s THE GREEN HORNET, Disney’s MARS NEEDS MUMS and the one I’m gagging for Darren Aronofsky’s BLACK SWAN starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis via Fox Searchlight. They are all coming out next year, I have listed the release date for each, the synopsis and if it has a website/trailer! There is no trailer for MARS NEEDS MUMS but I have heard good things on the grapevine.
