Movie Trailers: What's Wrong with this Picture?

I saw this on yesterday. Can you spot the oddity?

IMDb trailers: Renner for Cruise

With the left-most trailer, “Newlyweds,” I wondered if the girl with Ed Burns wasn't Melanie Laurent, but I believe it's Caitlin Fitzgerald. But that's not an oddity.

The poster for Cameron Crowe's “We Bought a Zoo” relegates Scarlett Johansson to the background, which is like putting Baby in a corner, but that's not an oddity, either.

No, it's in the right-most trailer image. I saw it and thought, “Oh, Jeremy Renner's got a new movie coming out. Cool.” Then I saw the title.

When was the last time a Tom Cruise movie ignored Tom Cruise in its marketing? Is he still that toxic?

Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise crazy
just be glad it's him not you
If you had Tom Cruise's troubles
you might be Tom Cruise crazy too
You'd flash your big, white shiny smile,
you'd buy expensive shoes
but you'd be the only man on Earth
who couldn't enjoy Tom Cruise.

-- Jonathan Coulton, “Tom Cruise Crazy”
