As I was getting ready to update Q97.com with a new contest to win tickets to see "Total Recall," I noticed something. Something off-putting. Dare I say...something disturbing.
The image we were using was a smaller version of the full-size movie poster. It looked kinda cool. Mysterious, with a tone of science fiction wonderment.
But then something struck me as.....a little odd. I just couldn't put my finger on it.

"Dude!", I said to myself. "They totally covered up Kate Beckinsale!", I said out loud.
Now, when I heard about this movie, I knew I wanted to see it for a number of reasons. Harold (no Kumar) was in it, Jessica Biel was in it, Walter White from Breaking Bad (aka Malcom's dad) was in it.
But above all else, this was another movie starring Kate F'n Beckinsale! I was sold on Total Recall before even watching the trailer!
And then they pull this crap? It's outrageous. Disgraceful. Blasphemous. And worthy of so many other synonyms I can't even think of right now.
Although there's nothing I can do about the official movie studio-produced poster, I'm thinking I can AT LEAST change the photo we are using for the contest on Q97.com.
Think anyone will notice?
