Oooh boy. I honestly have no idea who Fox is hiring what is no doubt very good money to do their “X-Men: First Class” posters, but ooooooooooooh boy, they’re bad. Here’s the latest, which looks appropriately shiny and questionably photoshopped. (Why does James McAvoy’s Young Professor X look like he’s about to rape me in a dark alley? And what’s up with his costume?) Honestly, this and the previous “photoshop their heads into the silhouettes” posters makes me wonder which Fox studio suit is giving all the work to his cousins, or sisters, or brothers, or crack dealer.
Give them this, though: the posters may suck, but the movie sure looks good.
Starring Michael Fassbender, January Jones, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Bacon, Jason Flemyng, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Lucas Till, Zoë Kravitz, Oliver Platt, Morgan Lily, Edi Gathegi, Caleb Landry Jones, and directed by Matthew Vaughn.
UPDATED: Another International poster for the movie, apparently featuring the same photoshoppy artwork. This one actually looks a tad better, though James McAvoy still looks like he wants to have his way with me in a dark alley.
