sexy violent copycat posters

Check this out. From a few days ago, as reported on AICN, the poster for True Blood. It's a new vampire series set to start September 7th on HBO, starring the lovely Anna Paquin.

The show according to wikipedia "details the fictional co-existence of vampires and humans in a small Louisiana town after Japanese-made synthetic blood – "TruBlood" – becomes available for purchase. Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress at a diner who falls in love with one of the vampires". Nice, eh?

But then out of the blue, care of Comingsoon, comes this teaser poster today for the new Megan Fox horror / thriller Jennifer's Body... ummm does that look familiar?

Do you think they really copied each other? Probably not. If fact I have a feeling neither of these posters is the first to use this imagery, but its kinda odd that they were both released within days of each other.

Of the two posters, my vote goes to Anna Paquin for being sexier. Sorry Megan, but thems the breaks. We'll probably get more on these projects as comic-con rolls into gear tomorrow.

i agree, they've boxed in Megan's face too much. At least I think that's what the problem is.

You know what I think it might be. The neck. You can see the whole neck on True Blood. Thats more vulnurable.
