31 Terrible Movie Posters That Will Make Your Eyes Burn

Photoshop can be a blessing, but it can also be a curse.

1. Magic In The Moonlight (2014)

Sony Pictures Classics / Via impawards.com

The recently released poster for Woody Allen’s next flick makes me laugh for all the wrong reasons.

2. Are You Here (2014)

Millennium Entertainment / Via impawards.com

What’s everyone looking at? Why are they on a couch in the middle of a field? What’s up with the rooster? The creative department on Mad Men would not be impressed by this.

3. Doom (2005)

Universal Pictures / Via impawards.com

Okay, I understand that this is a movie based on a video game, but taking a screengrab from the game and using it as a poster is just plain lazy.

4. The Bounty Hunter (2010)

Sony Pictures / Via impawards.com


5. Freeloaders (2013)

Myriad Pictures / Via aceshowbiz.com

What’s everyone looking at? Perhaps it’s the bad Photoshop artist who put this thing together…

6. The Greening Of Whitney Brown (2011)

ARC Entertainment / Via aceshowbiz.com

A horse and a young girl will fit in the back seat of a Mini? Interesting…

7. The Accidental Husband (2008)

Yari Film Group / Via impawards.com

Both men are possibly floating, neither of them look like they’re trying to catch her, and Colin Firth’s hands… they’re GIANT.

8. All About Steve (2009)

20th Century Fox / Via impawards.com

Sandra Bullock won the Worst Actress Razzie Award for this film. The poster certainly didn’t help.

9. X-Men First Class (2011)

20th Century Fox / Via movieweb.com

Anyone could have thrown this together.

10. Corky Romano (2001)

Touchstone Pictures / Via impawards.com


11. Takers (2010)

Screen Gems / Via impawards.com

So many different light sources, T.I. has no neck… It’s like they didn’t even try.

12. Prime (2005)

Universal Pictures / Via impawards.com

What I take away from this poster is that the movie is a romantic comedy, and Meryl Streep may or may not be gassy.

13. Chapter 27 (2007)

Vitagraph Films / Via impawards.com

Kudos to Jared Leto for gaining so much weight for this film, but does this poster make you wanna spend your money? Yeah, didn’t think so.

14. The Last Song (2010)

Touchstone Pictures / Via impawards.com

Any poster with Liam Hemsworth should feature more than than his decapitated head… amirite ladies?!

15. One Crazy Summer (1986)

Warner Bros. / Via impawards.com

This poster suggests that Jack Nicholson might play the role of a giant cartoon sun. Unfortunately, it’s just a really weird poster.

16. The King’s Speech (2010)

The Weinstein Company / Via news.moviefone.com

In an interview with Movieline, Director Tom Hooper called this poster a “train smash.”

17. The Whole Ten Yards (2004)

Warner Bros. / Via impawards.com

Matthew Perry’s face looks like it was drawn on, Bruce Willis appears to have aged 20 years… and again with the inexplicable rooster!

18. The Heat (2013)

20th Century Fox / Via usmagazine.com

This poster got a lot of *heat* for overly-photoshopping Melissa McCarthy. Luckily, they did a better job with the movie’s DVD cover.

19. Virgin Territory (2007)

Anchor Bay Entertainment / Via filmjabber.com

Who ran over Hayden Christensen? Why is he so flat?

20. Over Her Dead Body (2008)

New Line Cinema / Via impawards.com

Does Eva Longoria have knees? The creator of this poster doesn’t seem to think so.

21. Spider-Man 2 (2004)

Sony Pictures / Via impawards.com


22. The Hottie and the Nottie (2008)

Regent Releasing / Via collider.com


23. The English Teacher (2013)

Cinedigm / Via thefilmstage.com

How is that chair staying balanced? What’s up with the dangling door? Why are those books so big? I have so many questions…

24. Up The Sandbox (1972)

National General Pictures / Via impawards.com

…what even?

25. Good Luck Chuck (2007)

Lionsgate / Via myvideostore.com

No. Just no.

26. Bangkok Dangerous (2008)

Lionsgate / Via collider.com

First of all, the proportions and angles of Cage’s arms are way off. Secondly, he appears to be ready to shoot an invisible gun. “It’s all in the execution” was not the greatest tagline for this poster.

27. Victory (1981)

Paramount Pictures / Via flickfacts.com

No, this isn’t a movie about three men who share a crotch.

28. Jupiter Ascending (2015)

Warner Bros. / Via fansided.com

That doesn’t look like Mila Kunis. That doesn’t even look like a Mme. Tussaud version of Mila Kunis.

29. My Best Friend’s Girl (2008)

Lionsgate / Via huffingtonpost.com

Dane Cook hated this poster so much he wrote a lengthy blog post about it.

30. Legion (2010)

Screen Gems / Via movieinsider.com

My eyes want to focus on Paul Bettany’s ripped chest, but I just can’t get past the horribly ‘shopped gun.

31. Heavy Petting (2007)

Anchor Bay Entertainment / Via iwatchstuff.com

I’m speechless.
