X-Men: First Class made headlines this year when it released this batch of posters. They looked like fan-made photoshop hack jobs, but it turned out, they were real and produced by the studio.

Why don’t more movies crowd source movie posters? Clearly most films have one monkey just jumping on a tablet PC working the poster department, so why not open it up to a million artists who would gladly design something awesome for the publicity?
