"The Photoshop Jobby"

Though not the aim of any budding poster designer, bad Photoshop remains a key element of ensemble movie one-sheets. Unable to shoot everyone in the film together in the same room at the same time, a hodgepodge of stills and headshots are Sellotaped together to create what is often an ungodly, embarrassing mess – and for more ungodly, embarrassing messes, be sure to check out Empire's Ultimate Collection Of Badly Photoshopped Movie Posters at your earliest possible convenience.

Poster Checklist

The name of the movie.
The tagline for the movie.
People who definitely aren't in this room at the same time.
People's heads that definitely shouldn't be on those bodies.
Someone looking at nothing in particular.
Someone else's hand.
What you look like when you look at this poster.
