Hollywood movie posters were once glorious pieces of art. They featured dynamic, sweeping paintings that captured the awe and majesty of larger-than-life heroes of the silver screen like Indiana Jones or Luke Skywalker. Today however, movie posters are unimaginative, focus-group tested, poorly-photoshopped eyesores that either assault the senses with huge fonts and explosions, or fade into theater walls with their blandness.

 These new X-Men: First Class posters manage to be both garishly offensive and monumentally dull at the same time. The photoshop work looks like it was done by that dude named Greg in the 2Pm “Intro To Digital Design”, class at the Community College, but he had to rush it in order to get some hackey sack in outside the student lounge before his shift at Gamestop started.

About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
