I know I’m late to this party, but why should the identity of the executive producer entice me to watch a film? What fraction of the audience even knows what an executive producer is or does?

It means they can put the title of a more successful film on the poster.

Every now and again I look for the poster for "The Parole Officer" where the pull reviews spelled out "Full Blow Job Scene" in big letters. But sadly, it appears I am never to be satisfied. But today, when looking, I noticed the poster sent out to video rental places to prepare for the DVD release.



Maybe they don't mean Peter Sellers, but some lesser known comic with that actual name.

I was going to write " Whatever happened to Lena Headey?", but she's quite well known nowadays, apparently.

They mean the theatre director.
