When the Legion trailer came out last week, I made a joke about how God needed to brush up on Her* Photoshop skills because the graphics in that movie look kind of terrible (by today’s standards. If we are judging by 1992, Death Becomes Her standards, then it looks amazing). But those were just jokes, and joke time is over, because HAHAHA, LOOK AT THAT GUN IN HIS HAND.

What?

Did I make this stupid poster? The more I look at it, the more I am starting to think that I might have accidentally made this poster. When I was 9. On a calculator. Am I missing something? How much does it cost to pay someone who actually knows how to use Photoshop to put a gun in someone’s hand? Is that expensive? No. I bet you could find a teenager on AdultFriendFinder who’d do it for a couple of foot fetish pics. (Not that I have any idea what AdultFriendFinder is, mom, I’m just kidding about all of this stuff.) Or is this like those legendary Pentagon toilet seats of the infamous 1980s Pentagon Toilet Seat Scandals? Hollywood was like “we like the poster, but what about putting a gun in Paul Bettany’s hand,” and the director was like “It can be done, but it’s going to cost another 100 million dollars,” and Hollywood was like “just make it happen,” and suddenly there was a cocaine shortage in Southern California and the director of Legion bought a house on the moon.

This is silly! (Via GoldenFiddle.)

  1. Angels with tribal tattoos=smart investment for my LOLk portfolio

  2. What I don’t get about this fucking movie (okay, I don’t get a lot of things about this fucking movie but this is just one), but didn’t Hollywood already make this movie with Christopher Walken and call it The Prophecy? And it was kind of novel but ultimately overdone because of an endless mass of sequels?

    Wait, this is a reboot? Oh cool, so like Batman Begins then? No? Not a reboot? Well shit.

  3. Apparently every day in heaven is the 10th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos.

  4. I still don’t understand why we’re fighting angels with guns now????

  5. Careful Gabe, it almost seems like you’re jealous of his perfectly Photoshopped abs.
    Also, I could be wrong, but is that a two-legged classroom desk in the bottom right hand corner? If it is, it’s pretty amazing how its defying gravity.

  6. As a graphic designer, it makes me sad that they let any old monster do these while those of us who know how to properly use photoshop are stuck designing junk mail.

  7. I know the semester starts in two weeks and all, but um, is it too late for a refund?

    nothing says the apocalypse like angels with uzis and thug tats.

  9. The Paradise Falls sign behind him…. What do I need to minor in in order to get that level of subtlety in my visual metaphors?

    God is omniscient and omnipotent. But sometimes even she forgets to buy a prop gun.

  11. This was obviously photoshopped by vastly untalented 90s comic book artist and notoriously awful human being Rob Liefeld.

  12. You know who is the target demographic for ‘Legion’? Babies. Which is great because the number of babies attending R rated movies has been on the rise.

  13. “Legion” is the reason the film adaptation of “Good Omens” should never be made, even if it is directed by Terry Gilliam.

  14. I guess my question would be How hard is it to obtain a real gun? If you’ve got the money and resources to shoot an entire feature length movie, I’m sure you could source a gun from SOMEWHERE.

    • Heck, at this point I would settle for a physically real but otherwise fake gun over completely imaginary. I think a supersoaker would be an improvement.

    it’s posts like this that remind me why i keep coming back. thank you, gabe. this was hilarious.

  16. Perhaps I watched too much Prison Break (aka, any), but his tattoos look entirely too much like a poorly drawn escape plan. Once you get to the six pack, you’re on your own!

  17. The poorly photoshopped gun really distracts from the fact that his knife is one of those fancy knives where the blade is not in line with the handle.

    Also, is anyone else not able to login anymore, since the weekend. There used to be a link at the top of the page, to the right of the Videogum logo, but it’s gone now.

    Oh no! Have I been banned?!?!

    those are tattoos? it looks like he was run over by a car. repeatedly.

  19. i think i detect michael bay’s fingerprints…

  20. Is that clipart?

  21. so this may seem like a stupid question but why are you sweating the shitty job on photoshop the poster has, when the entire movie is there like a giant bulls-eye. isn’t it easier to talk about the bigger more obviously terrible things about the movie?
