Sony PicturesBrad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio star in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.’

The first official poster for Quentin Tarantino’s new movie called “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” was released, and people are having a field day with the amateurish design.

The movie is set in Los Angeles, California in the 1960s, and stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. Pitt plays a fictional TV actor named Rick Dalton and DiCaprio portrays his stunt double, Cliff Booth. Margot Robbie also stars as real-life actress Sharon Tate, who was murdered by Charles Manson and his followers in California in August 1969.

On Monday, a poster was shared by Sony Pictures that shows Pitt and DiCaprio standing in front of a yellow car. The film title is written in a font that resembles that of the iconic Hollywood side, which is also visible in the artwork.

People took to Twitter to react to the poster, and they generally weren’t pleased.

Many fans thought that Pitt looked heavily edited and his face didn’t appear to match his body. Others said that Pitt looked like a wax figure.^tfw

The poster was also described as “underwhelming” and “lazy.”

An additional Twitter user called it the “worst Tarantino poster ever.”^tfw

“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” hits US theatres on Friday, July 26.
