Incredibly Awful Hand-Painted Bootleg Movie Posters from Russia


We had a lot of fun with the delightfully terrible bootleg covers found in black market-lite shops across the world. Little did we know that Russia elevates unauthorized film marketing to an art form… a hilariously poor art form. Thanks to Adme.Ru, we’ve come across an entire gallery of some of the worst hand-painted posters for advertising small theater screenings. See Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis warped into odd-looking, bulbous humanoids, Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life reduced to a vaguely Constructivist motif of an attempted Brad Pitt, and Harry Potter looking more like Voldemort than Voldemort. Behold!
