Twitter Thread Reveals Bizarre Genius Of Painted African Movie Posters

We've seen some funky movie posters from the Soviet Union and Poland, but Twitter user @Retr0Joe managed to completely overshadow both with his thread of hand painted African movie posters. Apparently, due to licensing issues, some African movie theaters would hire artists to paint the promotional posters for their theaters. Most of these artists were completely ignorant of the film plots, so they'd have to fake it. And apparently that means a lot more guns, a lot more violence, and unexpected cameos from Michael Jackson. And if these aren't enough for you, there are tons more to be found in the thread.

Honest Movie Posters Are Back In Time For Oscars Season

2018 was a damn good year for movies. There was The Favourite, zany fish-eyed English Baroque rollercoaster from Yorgos Lanthimos. Roma, a poignant love letter to Mexico City, managed to steal hearts internationally. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper inexplicably paired up for what ended up being our favorite iteration of A Star Is Born yet. Despite our immense love for these acclaimed films, we also enjoy making fun of sh*t. And The Shiznit happens to do that very well.

Every year the entertainment site posts "honest posters" for Oscar nominees. They're beautifully done and funny to boot. We've included some of this year's posters and some all-time favorites. If you like what you see, check out the rest here and consider donating to their Patreon.

Funny honest movie posters.

The 'Aquaman' Poster Is Getting Hilariously Trolled To Oblivion

This Monday the Twitter account for Aquaman tweeted a photo of the film's poster to promote its December 21st release. Unfortunately for the well-meaning but ever-faltering DC Universe, it was immediately mocked on Twitter. The designers definitely made it easy. The poster features Jason Momoa surrounded by sharks ripped straight from the Getty Images gallery - and people immediately likened it to the posters for movies like Finding Nemo. Before long, it was getting the full Photoshop meme treatment. And we're definitely here for it. Better luck next time, DCEU.
