Al Gore? Who? What? Huh?

I highly doubt that I am the only person in the 'sphere to make this snide remark (I haven't bothered to check), but it seems Paramount has discovered the most inconvenient truth of all regarding An Inconvenient Truth.

Gore's name is not featured on the dramatic poster promoting the movie...

At Deadline Hollywood, Paramount Vantage says Drudge is "drumming up a story" about the star of the film's name not included on the poster. Huh?

IMBd describes the film this way:

A documentary on Al Gore's campaign to make the issue of global warming a recognized problem worldwide.

Furthermore, the cast list contains only one name. Anyone want to guess who that might be? And this article strongly suggests that Gore wrote the film as well as starring in it.

When was the last time that a person who inspired, wrote, and starred in a film didn't appear on its promotional materials?

Despite the fawning of the MSM over Gore as this summer's "shining star," the lack of proper credit speaks volumes about how Paramount believes the rest of us feel about him. They would just as soon we didn't know Al Gore is the star of the movie until after we have forked over the money.

That would be really funny if it wasn't so sad.
