‘New Year’s Eve’ Poster Is a Name-That-Star Game

I have to hand it to the producers behind the upcoming New Year’s Eve (a spiritual sequel to the ensemble comedy Valentine’s Day). Not only did they round up every familiar Hollywood face under the sun, but they also managed to fit them on the movie’s official poster.

To give you an idea, here’s the roster: Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Robert De Niro, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Jon Bon Jovi, Abigail Breslin, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Hector Elizondo, Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Seth Meyers, Michelle Pfeiffer, Til Schweiger, Hilary Swank, Sofia Vergara and possibly some unknowns. Then again, maybe the extras in this movie are former A-listers. I wouldn’t be surprised.

Take a look at the poster (along with the film’s equally star-studded trailer) below.


After a few years of working behind the scenes on movies and TV shows (and earning an IMDb page for bragging rights), Movies Editor Matt Patches made a hard right into the world of entertainment journalism. In 2009, Patches became the Associate Movies Editor of UGO.com, departing in 2010 to go rogue as a writer-for-hire. Patches covered movies and festivals for a number of outlets, including Movieline, MTV NextMovie, CinemaBlend, and Film School Rejects, before joining Hollywood.com as Movies Editor in 2011. He proudly names "Groundhog Day" as his favorite movie of all time.
