New Bones Cast Photo for Season 5

What do you think of this new Bones cast photo for Season 5?

I have to say that, while I like the s1esque tone to the shot Brennan really bothers me!

She kind of looks pasted in, like she took a different picture. She also doesn't look as hard-a** as she used to be.

I'm gonna be honest, they ALL look kind of pasted in. The photo looks unusually fake to me; everything's too "perfect."

don't get me wrong, everyone looks gorgeous in it..... but I'm just not sure I'm diggin' it.

I honestly think they all look a little off except Cam and Sweets. David's position is weird. Michaela looks off, but that might be because she looks a lot more serious than I normally picture Angela. TJ looks like he didn't quite know the picture was being taken, and Emily in this pic bothers me, too. I hope we'll get better promo shots later. None of them look bad; the whole picure just looks heavily photoshopped or something.

Hmm not a fan of this photograph. I think it lacks creativity and flair that we have seen - and somewhat come to expect - from other shoots of the cast.

=[

Leanne said...

Definitely agree with Anon above. They all look incongruous. Although they each look fine individually, there have definitely been better pictures of the group.

Leila said...

I dont Really like it ... Booth is to far form bones... Angela is not angle like this.

The picture doesnt show the real thing of the show. It's all fake!

I have to agree with everyone above. What bothers me is, that the picture looks too artificial. It's heavily photoshopped and not even good.

i like it. yeah its fakish, but hey, all pics are these days. anyway, i like brennan in it, all the others have got there posing type faces on around her and she just looks happy where she is and with who shes with, but thats probably just the mood im in

Jeannie said...

Weird. Like they told some random person to take a few single staff shots and paste them together. I remember that for the past few years their promo shots looked heavily photoshopped, too. Surely there must be some money somewhere to have a professional take a decent picture?

leeloo said...

All promo shoots from the last 3 seasons were photoshoped. This one just looks a bit more weird. There is a thing as "too much photoshop".

Anyway, it's just a promo shot. What matters is the actual season. Can't wait!

Did anyone think that Brennan's expression was chosen on purpose? Although I agree with anonymous above (she's happy where she is) perhaps this is a hint for this season's "theme" for Brennan's character. (I haven't read any spoilers as I'm waiting for the real thing...spoilers have been misleading in the past)

Brennan's pose is the worst, it is so fake, I hardly recognized her. The rest of the cast look good though.

Shep said...

I like the tone of the picture but I agree it looks weird and I think they have all been pasted in! And why the hell is David all the way over there and Michaela in a dark corner?

They're all too far apart from each other - the Squint Squad has always been like a family but the picture doesn't reflect that.

What do you think of those? - style, photoshopping, characterization,etc

Amanda said...

Wanna talk about photoshop, check out Tamara's hand on the table. Her fingers are tiny, and her hand is webbed.

They kind of look like wax figures, only everyone took on someone else's personality.

They all look the same to me :) Did you see these posters? http://bonesspoilers.blogspot.com/2009/08/boneyard-key-art-project.html I didn't know the blog...congrats! Love it! :)

Kisses...

I really love the poster where they're handcuffed to the briefcase and the film noir-ish one. The others are okay, but not my favorite. I think if they have Emily looking down at a camera like that, they need to not tie her hair back.

CupcakeBean said...

I don't understand why the promo pics have been so heavily photoshopped these past few seasons. Maybe I'm just not remembering accurately, but I don't think they were so poorly done in the first two seasons. It just seems like the quality of these pics has gone way down. At least the past pics seem to have been a little more in keeping with the theme of the show (such as the one with them laying on the autopsy tables).

On a brighter note, I absolutely love the B&B pulp poster. So hot!

Shep said...

Love the handcuff one and the one with them in front of the car. Does anyone else miss Booth wearing braces? (the clothing kind). I thought it looked kinda hot.

I also love the pulp one but although Booth looks hot and Brennan looks beautiful, I'm not too keen on the whole red dress thing. She is a scientist after all and she doesn't need to be in a red dress to look sexy and feminine. I think it would have been cooler for her to be wearing more guy-like clothes and a hat!

The socks one is cool too.

Anonymous said...

yeah I agree with you...it looks like they were all photo-shopped in or something. Everyone has a serious look on their face and Brennan is super excited about the bones in front of her (even those she is 'Bones' she's never appeared to be THAT excited over them)

Stephanie said...

Shep, while I agree with you that Brennan definitely doesn't need to be in a red dress to look hot and feminine, I think they were trying to capture that look of the old noir films that generally centered around a private eye and a femme fatale. So that picture was more of a genre concept than a Bones character thing. I love your idea of her being in a hat and kinda dressed like Booth, though. That would've been hot!

I also agree with Cupcake about the promos. They used to be so good! I loooooooved that autopsy table photoshoot. I also liked the one last year that had David and Emily dancing with skeletons. Bones has a gorgeous cast! They don't need all the photoshopping!

Allie said...

hmmm I agree something is off in the picture. It looks forced...I really hope its not foreshadowing. I didn't hate the season finale but i think if they don't do the season 5 premiere right the season *could* be a disaster

Kate said...

Yikes! Those pulp posters are...uh...different than expected. The first one creeps me out. It looks like Booth is BURYING a body and someone told Emily to "do the Meghan Fox pose." I could take or leave most of the others, but the one with the suitcase is brilliant! Anyone know where I can get a wallpaper version of that?
