The Infamous New EX3 Poster: What's The Deal?

By now, everyone has seen the new Expendables 3 poster that Millennium Films has on their EX3 page. Lots of internet talkback about this. Is it real? Or fake?

Well, since it's on their website, it certainly isn't fake or fan-made. But it is among the worst posters I have ever seen on an official studio website. Let's look at the problems.

First, they just took the EX1 skull logo, and put white over it, and the simple EX3 letters. Then they added the cast. Super-simple...probably took someone 10 minutes to make.

The text for the cast members is some plain Times New Roman font that no one would ever use in a real movie poster. Antonio Banderas gets 3rd billing? Really? Over Jet Li? Uh, I don't think so. I'm not even sure Davi will get his name on the poster, even at the bottom. He wasn't mentioned in the official press release.

But the real kicker is seeing "Harrison Harrison Ford" What is this? I guess he has a middle name of Harrison that we never knew about. LMAO.

I think an intern made this, just to fill the website with something. LOL I could see this maybe as a quick fan-made poster, but the studio itself is displaying it. Unbelievable. Hopefully the REAL EX3 teaser poster will appear in the coming weeks or months.

Sorry for the rant.....slow news day....
