Beside the botched perspective like Domino mentioned, this is just horrible photoshopping. The fact that Captain America is just posing while the world is going to shit just shows a complete disconnect between the action and people in the poster.

At first I thought this was just a bad photoshop job by a fanboy, but apparently this is a real movie.

I like how Thor has resigned himself to the inevitable destruction, Captain America is envisioning a GQ cover, Black Widow is looking to make a quick unobtrusive exit and Hawkeye is checking his iPhone. The rest just look impotent.

I also like how they felt the need to identify Samuel L. Jackson's character as "Nick Fury" even though this is now the fifth or sixth movie in which he has appeared in that role!

Is Hulk wincing as he's tiptoeing away? Does he have to go to the bathroom or something?

Seeing it plastered all over the iTunes trailer site, your points make way more sense. I just looked at it first and didn't pay that much attention.

Given that an earlier poster was criticized because Black Widow/Scarlet was the only one in an "ass-shot" pose, it is funny that Iron Man and Hulk are now allllllmost flashing their asses. (But not really, cause that would be gay.)

Not worth the $5 I saved. It's hard to tell when it's not in person, but that's a really ugly drawing.

St. Patrick's Day is almost here, so happy holiday, all. For those of you who didn't know this exists, uh, this exists. A hustler/rapper from South Central saves an Irish village from an evil developer who wants to turn it into an amusement park called Leprechaun Land or something, and he also learns some life lessons in the process and stuff. And of course they put Mo'nique in a barrel on the spine, why wouldn't they?

"Aspect Ratio: Widescreen"

Seeing that, I'd expect it to also say "Running Time: Too Long".

That's either an enormous bull or a very small house.

Nice to see this is where an Oscar gets you now: in a barrel on the cover of a DTV Eddie Griffin vehicle with your name nowhere to be seen.

In fairness, both the movie and DVD release appear to be from 2006, before she became one of our greatest actors.

Apparently her character's name in the film is 'Pyscho' (sic).
