Posterfail: "Wonder Boys," The Worst Movie Poster Ever


This poster is so terrible that the designer clearly didn't even pay attention to the aspect ratios of the photos (unless of course there's some wild Hollywood conspiracy to keep us from knowing that Michael Douglas and Tobey Maguire aren't people at all, but giant beach balls).

Unless there's some kind of circle jerk going on beneath those white frames, there is no excuse for those creepy smiles. Katie Holmes's face has been soft-focus blurred out of existence, as has Frances McDormand's. Don't even get me started on the atrociously unbalanced typography.

As you can see from the promotional photo above, the marketing for this film was generally atrocious. Share your thoughts on the poster in the comments.

  1. I have to agree with you. This is pretty bad. And it is not even consistent badness.

  2. it's forgivable in this case, cause the movie is great.
