You would think with the millions of dollars that are spent to make and promote a blockbuster movie these days, that film posters would be flawless works of art.
However, that’s not always the case. It seems that even movie studios can come down with a bad case of Photoshop fails. From Tomb Raider to The Heat, here are six times when movie posters suffered from very questionable Photoshopping.
This movie poster for the 2018 Tomb Raider movie went viral for all of the wrong reasons. A long neck is a desirable trait, but not when it is starts to take on giraffe-like qualities. For the record, actress Alicia Vikander has a normal length neck and it most certainly does not twist in such a weird way.
Confessions of a Shopaholic
This poster of Isla Fisher in Confessions of a Shopaholic looks almost normal, until you notice the very weird angle her elbow and arm take. The actress would need medical attention if her arm could actually bend at that angle.
On the one hand, Angelina Jolie looks like a badass in this movie poster for Wanted. On the other hand, her arm looks like it’s coming out of her face in a way that could not actually happen in real life.
What to Expect When You’re Expecting
This What to Expect When You’re Expecting poster might be what happens when A-listers like Jennifer Lopez and Elizabeth Banks are too busy to pose for a photo shoot. It looks like their heads were just superimposed onto other people’s bodies.
The Whole Ten Yards
We’re not sure who the creeper is peeking out between Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry in The Whole Ten Yards movie poster, but, whomever he is, his hands are definitely not proportionate to his face! Also, Bruce Willis’ face almost looks like it belongs to that body, until we scan down and look at those skinny legs that do not look very Willis-ish.
Melissa McCarthy, is that you? For the 2013 film The Heat, the actress was Photoshopped for a U.K.-version of the poster. And the result is she is completely unrecognizable. The actress jokingly blamed her husband for the #fail.
