Is This the Sequel?

Poster A (above) the happy sexy couple lies in bed at night, presumably naked.
Poster B (below) the happy sexy couple is just getting up and dressed in the morning, still mostly naked.
Okay so judging by these posters: "No Strings Attached" is the sequel to "Love and Other Drugs." We know this sequel, which must have been rushed since it's coming in January and Jake's movie has only just been released, won't be as good since:

A) Jake has been replaced by Ashton Kutcher. Ashton is beautiful but lacks the Oscar nominations to portray the depth behind his flawless lothario properly.

B) Anne Hathaway must have been unavailable. The choice of Natalie Portman is more of a lateral move than anything else. Possibly it's even a step up!

C) "No Strings Attached" missed a really good shot at using an Nsync song in the trailer, so double points off. It would be like naming a movie "Genie in a Bottle" or "Hit Me Baby One More Time" and scoring the trailer with "Hey Soul Sister" instead. Unforgivable.
