The new Tom Raider movie with Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft is coming next year. The trailer is out, and so is the official poster. However, Vikander’s neck looks so long in the poster that it seems to provoke more comments than the actual movie. And on Twitter, it’s slowly turning into a meme.
Usually, it’s female bodies that cause the Photoshop controversy. This time, not so much. It seems that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has had a little Photoshop treatment for the Shot Caller movie posters, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. It looks suspiciously like the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s body from the four year old Snitch movie poster.
It was spotted by Scott Wampler of Birth.Movies.Death. It’s not surprising that many others had noticed it, as Snitch wasn’t met with the best of receptions. So, perhaps the Shot Caller poster designer was relying on the fact that so few people ended up seeing it. Scott’s initial tweet has now had more than 10,000 shares and spawned several parody images.
Taking some rather ordinary images, as well as some exceptionally good ones, he creates amazing posters that wouldn’t look out of place on the walls of your local movie theatre.
