Movie Posters We Love: Prophecy


Grrrrr! Mutant Bear!  The Poster is Better than the Movie. Bearly. (HA!)

I imagine the creation of this poster went something like this:

Marketing Director: Hey, Alien was a huge hit!  Aren’t you doing a monster movie?

Prophecy Producer:  Yep.  It’s called Prophecy, it’s about a mutant bear.

Marketing Director:  Cool… Cool… I have an idea for a movie poster.  Why don’t we put the bear in an egg?  Maybe look like a crazy bear fetus.  You, know, like the hand thing in that Ridley Scott movie.

Prophecy Producer:  I’m not sure that’s how it works.  A bear is a mammal.

Marketing Director:  Nonsense!  This is going to pack the theaters!  I say mutant bear egg.

Prophecy Producer:  OK… if you think it’ll work.

Marketing Director: Trust me!

Later…

Prophecy Producer: THAT LOOKS LIKE A PIG!  WHAT THE FUCK?

Marketing Director:  Um… yeah. Gotta go!  Good luck with the movie!
