scissorkick -> Double the D's? (21/2/2012 10:17:12 AM)

Really? Who do these Ds belong to exactly?Sure, it may look ugly, but the plural of D, is Ds. The fact that the tagline is borderline nonsensical is the least of their problems. Grammar twats.

Show me five text books which say you shouldn't use an apostrophe to pluralise single characters, and I'll show you five which say you should. It's grammar - it's not an exact science.

Smerph is correct, it is an acceptible use of an apostrophe.
Furthermore, since the whole tagline is capitalised, removing the apostrophe would make it look like the film contained an increased number of Nintendo consoles.

Personally, I found the tagline mildly ammusing...

Actually, scissorkick, I think you'll find their grammar is sound. An apostrophe is used when the word preceding the S is not technically a word, such as in 1980's, or in this case, D's. Look it up

The first poster shows the piranha reflected in a woman's shades. Does that mean they're remaking James Cameron's Piranha II: Flying Killers? Will Ripley show up with a flame-thrower, fry them all and say "Fish Fingers for everyone!"?

"DD" is a reference to bra sizes in the US. Not sure if the terminology translates to the UK. Anyway, "Double D", that's what they're going for there with the title.

The second poster with the sunglasses isn't necessarily spectacular, but it captures the right tone I think. However, without Aja's involvement in this sequel, my hopes for a rousing time at the movies are close to nil.
