Windows 7: Changing movie poster images

Changing movie poster images

I was hoping there was a way to do this in WMC without using any exploits or hacks. Is it possible to change what image (if any) is displayed in the Movie list? I set a folder containing typical movie files (.wmv, .avi, etc.) to be both in the Video and Movie sections, and they're all coming up as blank images.
