There are good movie posters and there are strange movie posters, and Quentin Tarantino's poster for his newest film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood falls somewhere in the middle category.
The ninth film from Tarantino, before his 'retirement plans' stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Al Pacino, and its poster's releasehas been drawing flak from the Internet for being, well... Photoshopped.
The poster for the movie shows Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in a very 60's aesthetic in Hollywood in which the movie is set. But that's all the poster shows. Fans are currently asking... shouldn't there be.. more?
remember when REAL artist would paint real works of art for posters..Sigh. I mean I am still excited as hell for this movie but this poster is lame as fuck!— Mike Vaughn (@StrangeCinema65) March 18, 2019
It also inspired some funny memes.
