A handful are coming this month Movie Posters have been criticized for their bad editing, overall conceptor both.
the latest example The trailers and promotional materials arrived on Thursday scream VI dropped. the poster for the latest Scream Film, which will be released in March, shows 13 characters plus Ghostface in front of the New York City skyline. The poster is unfortunately part of a larger trend of franchise ensemble films that seem to want to be included every single character on the poster even if it objectively looks bad. (For reference, the early Scream posters included all the main characters, which was usually only about five people.)

While the poster includes only half the number of characters on the Scream poster, it was quiet drawn for its tired design: the main villain and hero in large photos, and the secondary characters in smaller and smaller photos. That doesn’t appear Many thoughts was put in.
In the meantime, a poster for an upcoming re-release of an older film –titanic-was criticized earlier in January for what appeared to be a bad photoshop job.

But the “Floating Heads” style poster? We’ve seen it too many times.
