"Reckless" Larry Crowne Poster Fined £25,000 in Spain

You
can argue that the box office gross for the rom-com movie Larry Crowne
by Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts was so
low that it’s criminal
.

But it’s the movie’s promotional poster that’s actually illegal, at least
in Spain:

The poster, which shows Roberts and Hanks riding without protective
headgear, was in violation of Spain’s strict traffic rules, which ban
"any publicity, in print, audio or video that may incite excessive
speed, reckless driving, situations of danger or any other circumstance
involving conduct contrary to the principles of the law".

ThinkSpain said the makers of the film had been fined more than
£25,000 for the breach.
