Nice poster, shame about the film

You've got to feel a bit sorry for those Hollywood marketing execs. After being shown the hideous final cut of a film they have to spend the next 12 months of their life pushing on the little people, it's got to sting.

So, who could blame them from keeping their chins up and putting together a poster that belies the true, unsatisfying nature of the film it's promoting. These 50 posters may have ultimately led us astray, but here's to Hollywood. For being brave.
