Exclusive: The Banned Teeth Poster
Yes, those are what you think they are

16 June 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards

If you haven't yet heard of Teeth then you have not been listening hard enough. The story of a girl with chompers in a very strange place is a funny, occasionally disgusting and surprisingly sweet movie, with an adorable performance by Jess Weixler, and is definitely worthy of your time.

Momentum Pictures has provided us with an alternative poster for the movie that was apparently banned. We've not yet mentioned where the film's heroine has these strange fangs, but we think you'll get the idea by looking at the image below. If you're male you've probably just crossed your legs.



Teeth is released in the UK on June 20.

Teeth
Fanny teeth. hee hee.  For all you americans, fanny is what we brits call a vagina. We are correct and you are not. An ass is a type of donkey not a bottom, the correct term for a bottom is arse and you should refer to an idiot as an arsehole as asshole just conjurs images of a donkey falling into a hole which is cruel and unfair as donkeys are hard workers and bring in the coin for travellers on the beach (gypsy or pikey is not allowed anymore).

S-bend
The yawnsome and rather pre-pubescent premise behind the film is not surprising considering the often turgid output that Hollywood has long seem smugly satisified with. The x-ray image reminds me of my own Scoliocis! For those not in the know, it's a curvature of the spine. Mine is partial, meaning it's straight at the bottom and at the top (somehow), but 'curved' in a loose 's' shape in the middle. Pardon me if some don't like the biology lesson, I just find it far more interesting t More

But i believe if those teeth were to have any force, they need to be fixed on a jaw, and a jaw, unlike the soft tissues of the vaginal wall, the uterus and the fallopian tubes, will show up in an x-ray. Now, octopuses (yep, that's the plural form) don't have skeletons, but they bite. Their chompers are beaks. Maybe for a jawless biting orifice, a beak would work? Or something that slides back and forth, like an electric knife? A guillotine arrangement? Filament wire? A cigar cutter? Wall-mounted More

Grow Up People
OK.... We have films that have men trurning into to giant green men, space ships flying into the sun without melting. We have zombies, vampires, werewolves and aliens with no lips who are somehow able to communicate in perfect english. But if a woman was to have teeth in her vagina.......eh? GROW UP PEOPLE!!!! LET YOURSELF BE ENTERTAINED!!! Let yourself get sucked into a 'what-if?...' scenario. Don't get to fussed about things like... 'Well the teeth in the x-ray clearly don't have More

RE: Pitiable Promotional Stunt
L: kumar And also, here is a bit of medical knowledge, though feel free to correct me. Bones show up white because the X rays do not penetrate (lolz) through them. Teeth i am guessing are denser than bones so therefore, i would presume that they would be less penetrable to X Rays therfore showing up as a stronger colour of white. Like i said im no radiologist, and not everyone else is either, but still, noone really cares and i dont see why i bothrerd to type that sheeeeyite all out. More

Haters Beware!!!
Okay, so i earlier expressed my dislike for this film and the shoddiness of the poster. After that post i recieved this email from Darcher... Clarkkent. I worked on the film. I doubt your old enough to appreciate quality cinematography. Darcher. Dunno whether i should alert a modorator about this, seems like me doing so would be just as pathetic. So there ya go people, if you don't like something Darcher worked on you're clearly not old enough to appreciate qualty cinematographyy, More

RE: Pitiable Promotional Stunt
L: d0m_l The execution of this poster is awful. Shouldn't there be jaw bones for a start? The "teeth” aren't even the same shade as the rest of the X-Ray. I work in graphic design and I can tell you now that if I turned this in as part of a completed project I would be shown the door. This just looks like a very cheap, fast, poor effort to get more people to the cinema on shock factor alone and I'm not at all convinced that it was banned. What a pitiable promotional stunt. he teeth More

I have to disagree with clarkkent. I was lucky enough to see this film a few weeks ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Some of the acting was a bit shoddy but the main character was brilliant. The film was funny and original. I would reccomend it for anyone fancying something different. More
