Favoritest Photo of the Week: Elite Squad

Our Favoritest Photo of the Week comes to us from Rio de Janeiro where movie posters are apparently gigantic. We love the proportions in this image — OK, OK — and the woman just strolling by in her bikini. The controversial movie advertised here is about the shady workings of Rio's Special Operations Police Battalion. It's caused quite a stir in Brazil. Here's the original caption:

Elite Squad, a feature film about the shady workings of Rio's Special Operations Police Battalion, wasn't supposed to be released until Thursday, but pirated copies illegally leaked before the premier proved so controversial that police tried to keep the film out of theaters.
