Hello Scary Kitty
This new Scary Movie 4 one-sheet made me wonder if Sanrio would stop suing student theater groups and start suing Miramax/Dimension for imitating the copyrighted character of Hello Kitty. If they licensed the rights to a mouthy, spooked kitten, I hope they have ample merchandising. She's so much cuter scared.
