A movie poster is supposed to entice a person to want to see a film, but it doesn’t always achieve this desired effect. And in such unfortunate cases, a keen eye will notice something slightly off, and the given poster will become known for its Photoshop fail more than the movie it’s promoting. Need proof? Well, the following 20 hilarious mistakes mean you’ll never look at these promotional posters the same way again.
20. A Photoshop fail larger than Mr. Big
Sex and the City 2 received little love from critics and audiences on its initial release. But perhaps they were primed to dislike the movie by this unfortunate poster, which features a cluster of bent elbows and arms on its right-hand side. Sorry, Kim Cattrall, but you appear to have multiple limbs and joints.
19. Harry Potter and the dangerous floating head
The tagline of this poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 advises us to “trust no one.” And that advice should have applied to the artists responsible for this image. For one thing, Harry Potter appears to be inside of a fast-moving subway car with an open door, which can’t be safe. But worse yet, his head is somehow outside of the door frame, while his body is located behind Hermione, who is inside the carriage. The mind boggles.
