The Bourne Supremacy DVD cover looks quite bad... Looks like he's dancing... Smooth Criminal

I'd say any Michael Moore film has God-aweful cover-art.

Holy crap, that's funny. As I was scrolling down, I thought that something looked very strange about Michelle Yeoh's picture, and yet the body and pose looked familar.

There is a brief football practice in this, I am pretty sure the cover images aren't from the movie. The Trans-Am *might* be from the movie.

The movie has nothing to do with football, and precious little to do with the Trans-Am.

Think Revenge of the Nerds meets Grease, with a cast of familiar sit-com faces...

I was going to include the High School USA cover, but decided that there's nothing wrong with it design-wise.

It's not only bad, but also trying to steal Van Helsing's thunder. I've seen this movie on TV many times as a kid and I don't remember graveyards, just a desert and them living up in some cliff cave or something. No lightning either.

EDIT: Oops, I got the movies mixed up. Har! I mean, how many Gargoyle movies can there be?

Jersey Girl. The movie wasn't all that great, but a DVD cover that didn't look like barf might've helped. It's also misleading, with Liv Tyler played up as the supposed "Jersey Girl". (Notice Kevin Smith hiding up in the corner - how many directors are subjected to having their face on their DVD covers, especially such a horrible one?) The one-sheet wasn't great - it was as though they never knew what image to put out there.

I think Universal's Peter Pan has one of the worst covers I've seen in a long time.

The cover makes this look like a direct to video Barbie film and I was embarassed to walk out of the store with it despite favorable reviews from this site and many other reviewers and good comparisons to Shrek and A Princess Bride.


This is the worst - as in most misleading. Makes this film about lesbians look sexy, romantic and in color. None of this is true for the actual film. Instead you get scenes like this...

Gangs of New York has some god awful cover art. The original cover was pretty lousy but then they had to revise it by blowing up everyone's faces even more. Too bad most custom cover sites don't accept Miramax covers.

how about the cover to "Shiri"

i don't think she wore anything like that in the movie, and it makes it seem like a sleeze chinese flick. the one for the miramax version of infernal affairs is equally as bad.

thats supposed to be the secretary right? she never carries a gun and never wears that.
