X-Men: Days Of Future Past Reveals Two New Photoshop-Disaster Posters
Let’s start by analyzing the top one, shall we? On first glance you’ll notice that the poster features both young and old versions of Magneto – played by Fassbender and McKellen – and that’s 100% fine, but it’s when you start looking closer you discover some pretty horrendous mistakes. For example, why is the sky to the right of old Magneto’s neck a different color then the rest of the poster? And why is Hugh Jackman’s name above the title? Doesn’t that just seem intentionally confusing?
The second poster, sadly, isn’t much better. While the name actually fits this time, the person who put the design together once again forgot to change the color of the sky while Photoshopping (look behind Wolverine’s head). Perhaps more importantly: why are these two characters sharing a poster together? Do they have anything in common beyond the fact that they are played by two of the most popular actors in the franchise?
Trainwreck artwork aside, I’m still very excited for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, which promises to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the summer. Will it be as bad as the posters above or as excellent and awesome-looking as the trailers below? We’ll just have to wait and see when the film comes out on May 23rd.
