Two New Posters For Pineapple Express
Franco And Rogen are relaxed

01 July 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: impawards.com

You shouldn't do drugs, kids, you know that. But you should go and see Seth Rogen and James Franco smoke industrial quantities of weed in Pineapple Express, their soon to be released comedy. IMPAwards has two new character posters for the film. Click the images below for bigger versions.

In the comedy, directed by David Gordon Green, a man usually known for dreamy indie fare, Rogen plays a guy who witnesses a murder and then goes on the run with his pot dealer (Franco) before the killer can kill him, and his buzz. Trust us, if you've only been lukewarm on Franco in the past, he will be your hero by the end of this movie.

Pineapple Express is out on August 8 in the US and September 12 in the UK.

Rogen's eyes almost look stoned. They aren't bloodshot though. More

Hmmmm
1. Seth Rogen is HOT!!! Even when he looks stoned (which is most of his filmic output!) Re-watched Knocked Up (£3.99 in play sale) the other night - he is so adorable. Anyways,,, ;) 2. I thought Superbad was dire and this joins a long line of stoner features so not sure it's gonna be any better (or worse for that matter) but certainly looks worthy of a cinema trip. 3. Check out Gregg Araki's Smiley Face - another stoner feature! :) More

RE: Two New Posters For Pineapple Express
I always see these articles on Empire. The question is, can I actually get that James Franco poster anywhere? Because I want one. I really, really would like one of those posters. A lot. Please. More

RE: Two New Posters For Pineapple Express
Yay, another film about stoners starring Seth Rogen (apparently a 'Comedy God' according to Empire). Smoking weed is funny! More
