Empire's New And Improved Collection Of Badly Photoshopped Movie Posters | Nine (2009)
Nine (2009)

Stars butchered: Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz.

What went wrong where: This is just a mess. There seems to be an ungodly fascination with Daniel’s crotch, so much so that paparazzi are fighting each other to take a snap of it. Then there’s the mish-mash of different bodies alongside him, odd heights, sightlines, looks, shadowing – all clumsily glued together with these flashes of light that really fail to add anything. Penelope looks the most out of place, writhing as she does while a photographer on the left hand side takes a shot of her thighs.

Did they fix it: They tried so many times, but nothing really worked. Sex didn’t really sell it, Celebrity squares didn’t work - even Day-Lewis walking across a sofa didn’t do it. Damn.

The You can count on me cover that I was always familiar with was this one http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0203230/ Far better than the one you claimed was an improvement (which isn't) More

The cover for Henry's Crime on DVD is awful, I'm not sure if looking at it online truly does it justice but here it is on amazon: http://amzn.to/mK5no4 when it's in your hand the colours are all over the place (especially Keanu) and there's just no WAY all 3 of the cast were together for that shot. Awful, just awful. More

6 Everybody’s Fine (Except the camera)
If you tilt a digital camera, the picture does not tilt with the camera. It stays paraller to the horizon. Unless DeNiro already took the photo and then tilted the camera on a flash of a second. Cause everybody seems to be in the excat same position in both of them. More

I wouldn't be too hard on the Takers poster, the whole cast probably couldn't get day release when the group shot was scheduled. More

there's nothing wrong with the snakes on a plane poster More

10 RE: RE;
I remember the VHS cover on Titanic always use to freak me out. Kate Winslets Neck was just too weird and at a wrong angle and the way Leo was hugging her just bugged me. More

11 RE:
I've just spent a good fifteen minutes going through these on my lunch break, chuckling quietly to myself in the hope that no one saw. I don't think I succeeded - thanks Empire. More
