Latest X-Men: First Class Poster...

Posted by G-Man (35047 posts) - - Show Bio

Ever since we first started hearing about the next X-Men movie, most of us have been wondering what is going on. An X-Men reboot film that's been said to not be a reboot film, taking place in the past and causing conflicting backgrounds for some character (since Emma Frost apparently was in Wolverine Origins). The first official trailer we had for X-Men: First Class gave the film some promise. I'm not sure where exactly the movie is going but I do want to see what they do with it.


A new one-sheet has made its way online. As with the first group banner and other one-sheets, the use of photoshop is pretty apparent.

Is it just me or do some of the characters look like they have big heads?

It honestly just keeps getting worse. Why doesn't Fox just get all the X-Men fans in a room and have bears rape them? It'd be less painful than watching this film.

Looks like their heads was poorly photoshopped in, and in the wrong size.

why in the hell, does every poster they release look even more amateurish then the last. I know high schoolers who do better than this in photoshop. Are they paying people for these?

They all look REALLY unattractive as well, what is up with Frosts face?

I don't like the look of this poster at all.

this looks off, I think it may be the heads but something just make me feel uneasy looking at this. 

This poster may be worse then the last ones lol

Hmm, I wonder when I should buy Fox stock. When will it be cheapest, right before this movie comes out, or right after? Of course, this could end up bankrupting them. Gosh, investing is hard!

Oh the irony! 

This is very, very poor photoshopping. I used to be in a general media class and the kids in that class (who were in 7th/8th grade) could do better. For shame.

It does have a caricature look to it.

Is it bad that the only normal looking one is Beast?

 Yeah the poster is very simplistic, and yes you would expect a movie studio to put more effort into getting artists who make quality posters that qualify as art but that doesn't make the poster terrible. Below are two posters that are much better in terms of artistic quality. I think they are better and live up to what most people expect from a professional artist. They are from  http://blogs.coventrytelegraph.net/thegeekfiles/2011/04/x-men-first-class-fans-create.html and  http://secretundergroundheadquarters.com/ . There are more posters at the link. The two below I think were the best. But at the same time I actually like the official UK poster in the original post. I like that the characters are separate allowing you to see the entire body of each individual character and I like that the poster captures the basic identity of each character. 
 

  


Also here's a larger version of the official UK poster from  http://www.heyuguys.co.uk/images/2011/04/Xmen_1st_Class_1Sht_E.jpg

@G-Man: lol, Well I'm pretty sure it stands for sheet e. But in defense of the artist, we assume that the artist only photoshopped the pics together, but it's possible he did more then that. Perhaps he also took the photographs of the actors for instance.
 Besides I think the poster was only meant as a teaser to draw some publicity. I personally enjoy them. If they are going to spend money, spend it on making the movie better, not on the poster. So I don't mind if the poster is done cheaply. Ultimately who cares how the poster looks as long as the movies good. Posters were important back in the day before internet, but now they are just a tradition really. I mean who decides which movie they are gonna watch based just on a poster.  Maybe if it was the costumes or the actors that might be something to be upset about, but it's just a poster. If the movie isn't good then maybe we can burn Fox at the stakes. Who knows maybe Fox is trying to lower our expectations so they can blow us out of the water with a spectacular movie. :)

I agree, it looks like their heads were added in separately from their bodies. It's photoshop madness

Is it just me, or could a toddler do a better photoshop job?
