really, really, really, really, really

bad movie posters.

I love the X-Men movies, including the Wolverine movie that a lot of people didn't like. There's a new one coming out this year X-Men First Class. It's a prequel.

Here are the posters.

Holy crap dude. Those are the worst posters I have ever seen...including regular non-movie posters. It's like Prof. X is pregnant with Magneto's giant head baby and vice versa.

What I want to know is what on earth happened? Movies require investments of millions of dollars. Would you use this garbage to advertise your investment?

I mean, what happened to the graphic designer? Was there even one involved or did some chimp in a three-piece suit assume he could save a coupla bucks and toss something together? Unfriggin' believable.

I wasn't sure about this movie when I read the premise. If the studio or whoever didn't see fit to provide adequate marketing materials, that says a lot about the production, I think. These posters have sealed the deal for me. I will not be shelling out my hard-earned money to see this in the theater.

I predict massive bomb.

And where the hell is Stan Lee? Is he okay with this?

End rant.

  1. It reminds me of the design for the Ironside TV series of 60s and 70s.
