X-Men: Days Of Future Past Reveals Two New Photoshop-Disaster Posters image
Back when X-Men: First Class was coming out in 2011, Fox released two of the worst official movie posters I have ever seen. The two separate designs featured silhouettes of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen’s Professor X and Magneto, respectively, and then the faces of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender were Photoshopped on to their crotches. The two new posters for X-Men: Days of Future Past that you see both above and below - originally posted by Empire - aren’t quite that bad, but they are still horrendously awful.

X-Men: Days of Future Past Poster

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.
