So, I'm driving home last night, and out of the corner of my eye I notice that a movie poster is displayed in one of the TTC bus stops.
Automatically, I think "Why is there still a poster up for the X-Men movie?", but then it hits me - this is a movie poster for Jet Li's upcoming filme The One.
Check it out:
The One

X-Men

Granted, the X-Men poster I remember from the theatrical release was zoomed-out a bit, so you could see more of the circular "X" (I just did a cursory search).
The shodowy figures centered within the separated logo... the colors, the backlighting, the fonts...
Anyone else thinking rip-off?
Moe.

Very much a rip off. But I don't care. The movie looks bad ass!

Definitely looks like a rip-off!
Personally, I think The One looks absolutely horrible. I mean, how in the hell can you beat a "guy" who can bend reality, slow time, and defy gravity? Damn, Superman couldn't even do that.

Deviating from the poster topic, but I'm a sucker for the reality-manipulation movies. It stems from my affinity for the RPG Mage: The Ascension. The Matrix and Dark City immediately come to mind...ah, I'll be going to see The One.

See it, and you'll know. All is not as it appears in the trailers...

Maybe they are trying to target the same audience who saw X-Men? By having similar posters maybe some kid will see it and think "Must...see...the...one...x-men...was...cool.."
Not so suttle subliminal marketing?

Reality limits him; his magick is vulgar and causes a feedback effect on him.
