Everyone in the poster is drawn to scale - according to their level of fame in Hollywood

I don't actually mind that poster too much, although using Wolverine in front of the wanted posters would have been cool. However, Professor X looks ridiculous. It's like he's flying away from it all.
Yeah, he does look rather goofy. The trailer looks nice.

Jennifer Lawrence looks cute in an army uniform.
That was also in the Comic-Con trailer.

Aww, I think his flaming flatulence-powered hoverchair is pretty cool.

For anyone complaining about the poster, just remember, it could be a lot worse...





But yeah, something like this would be very nice...

This is the first trailer that's really made me want to see it. Job well done, trailer people!

I like the poster. It's a meme waiting to happen.

Win. It does look rather goofy in the poster. Like someone just cropped out his wheelchair. What in the heck could he floating on?

As for the preview though, it looks like it'll be really good. Definitely planning on seeing this one in theaters if I can .

That's very cool, but it wouldn't work as a movie poster. Only hardcore comics fans of a certain age would get it. And the potential audience for this movie is much bigger than that.

I'm not sure I agree. It does a good job of conveying what the story is about: "Mutants are being hunted, Wolverine is the focal point, and Kitty plays a role." Plus it adds some mystery as to why so many Mutants are either dead or in custody.

Does the actual poster in any way at all give you any indication what the movie is about? I think this fan work based on the actual comics cover does a much better job.

Well, for one thing, Kitty isn't really a big draw to the average movie-goer so why emphasize her at the expense of, say, Jennifer Lawrence or Michael Fassbinder or Ian McKellan or Halle Berry or Patrick Stewart? Kitty is a big deal in the comics but much less so in the movies.

(And did Kitty star in The Hunger Games? I think not.)

Movie posters are not about explaining the plot. They're about advertising the movie's main selling points to the vast majority of the movie audience who have never read the comics.

The message you need to get across here is: "Look! It's Wolverine with the original cast and the FIRST CLASS cast. (Plus, Jennifer Lawrence is blue and naked.)"

A cool riff on a thirty-four-year-old comic book cover is not going to entice the Friday night date crowd.

You're right. Though to be fair once upon a time movie posters did give you a tease of the plot in lieu of pimping out the stars that are in the movie.
