New Killers poster trying to out-suck Bounty Hunter

04.07.2010

Good lord, why the hell is it that no one in Hollywood has any idea how to make a not utterly horrible movie poster these days?

I just got done berating THE BOUNTY HUNTER for its supreme awfulness over the past few weeks, and now KILLERS has stepped up to take its place.

There’s not so much Photoshop awfulness in this poster, but come on, look at it. Just Katherine Heigl’s pose and face alone make me want to burn every copy of this movie ever made. She looks like someone tried to unsuccessfully program a Stepford Wives robot to hold a firearm.

Extra Tidbit: Ashton Kutcher is actually looking at this poster for the first time, hence his expression.

My friend Tom said it best.

"It looks like a poster for the bad Broadway musical based on Mr & Mrs Smith."

Anyone who pays to see this shit will hopefully realize within the first 10 minutes that they've been Punk'd.

Heigl is butchered with the liquify and eraser tools... faker than a Stepford wife. I just look at these posters and think "SOMEONE GOT PAID TO DO THAT?" I'd probably kill MYSELF if I had to watch this "movie"

i fucking HATE Katherine Heigl... she is just a supremely ungrateful super bitch, and i hope her movies stop making money soon so she fades into obscurity!

It's a shame neither one of them pulled a Brandon Lee during the photoshoot.

Yippie....

Looks like yet another winner Ashton. Can't wait to run out and see this piece of shit. What really pisses me off is how dare they use that awesome title and to top it off put it in PINK LETTERING? Where's my chainsaw, enough is enough.

Sarcasm

I heard that the reason girls can't hold guns is because they bleed from their crotch and they're naturally clumsy out of the kitchen. This movie looks fun!

There's a lot of anger below me...


... which is unusual for JoBlo.

I'm thinking this poster is more powerful than we originally thought.

Every copy needs to be destroyed.

Blah blah blah! Allow me to be the sugar cube amongst you lemony bitches:
The Bounty Hunter: 7/10 (it wasn't supposed to be The Godfather Part 4 it's just a capable rom/com.)
And sure this poster blows like a Dyson Airblade but atleast it's better than 2 floating heads.
I for one am sick of this hate for these popcorn flicks by these cynical pseudo-film buffs. Fuck that, I recentely watched O Thiasos (a nearly 4 hour long Greek film from 1975) and I loved it but I enjoy movies like The

So knock it off, you know it's not just your girlfriend making you go to these movies. She's not that cute.

Sometimes there are some decent movies that come out of this. I can get behind your irritation at people who probably aren't appreciators of high cinema art like O Thiasos (I must confess I've never heard of it myself). But you seem too venomous. What do I care if you liked "The Ugly Truth" or not? But the majority on this website aren't interested in anything to do with Kutcher, and very little to do with Heigl. And the fact that the poster is shitty only reminds us this is part of that

If you are sick of hearing people bash these movies, stop reading our comments.

Yeah you're a real movie buff. "I watch sophisticated movies, but I'm better than you because I appreciated shitty movies too!" Blah blah indeed.

Thumbs down for thinking we will allow you be a sugar cube when you are (judging by your tone and love of Rom Coms) the biggest bitch of all.

And we arent "film buffs" Mr. Obscure Film Name-Dropper, we are FILM FANS. we like good movies. this won't be one.

Geez. Even your avatar is pretentious.

Oh yeah, the movie and poster are both lookin' terrible.

But just try having a campus marketing job for Lionsgate/Maple Pictures and you have to spend a whole month promoting it.

But for every shitfest like Killers we have to promote, we'll be promoting a little movie called The Expendables two months after!

Heigl and Kutcher don't deserve a quality poster. Therefore this horrific product is exactly as good as it should be. And they kept the names of the rest of the cast (Selleck, O'Hara, Riggle) off so as not to so wholly incriminate them either.

I'm hip to this because I'm thinking if posters are going downhill this way, I could one day have a job making movie posters with my Photoshop skills (not expert, but good...and f'n awesome when compared to this poster). So yeah, keep making shitty posters...one day I'll just send in my portfolio and WHAM...instant paychecks baby!

I blame W.

blame whatever president/political leader you feel is most responsible for the US and A's current economic downturn. I blame bush. Then, whilst knowing our economy sucks balls, realize that the movie industry may be hurting too. so that's why they get some art school freshman to do a free internship and copy/paste/spit out these crappy posters for movies. So really...it's W's fault these movie poster are bad.

Paul, proof read your work before you submit it. You're a professional writer.

And, this movie looks like garbage. I wonder how long it takes Heigl to start bashing Kutcher and the rest of the production crew of this movie?

Heigl is a walking contradiction. She acts like she's this generation's Bette Davis who is too cool for school and very very selective in her roles, but then she just continues starring in truly awful romantic comedies over and over again.

Like Bounty Hunter, I do not plan on seeing this any time soon. Maybe when it comes on VHS.
