So Jake “my last name sucks to type” Gyllenhaal looks pretty damn good on the Prince of Persiamovie poster. It’s a good pose and the outfit looks great. The tagline isn’t that bad, either! The second poster features the sexy Gemma Arterton, who also looks pretty good.
The problem with the posters, though, is the f**king font. Look at that sh*t. What the f**k am I even looking at? You could make a white guy look Persiany, but you can’t make the damn typeface look Persian? Not even a little?
Who uses f**king Helvetica in bold for a movie poster about Persia, anyway?! The artist couldn’t even try to “borrow” the font from the games? Dammit, Hollywood.
