Harrison Ford's movie career heading in the wrong direction.

(click poster, snapped on The Bowery near Houston) I didn't alter the photo. This bus-stop poster for Extraordinary Measures was installed (?—see comments) backwards by alert transit workers. Related: did you see the apparently shitfaced Ford present during last night's Golden Globes? Previous noteworthy movie posters:
Rambo.
Saw III.
Kill Bill.
Knocked Up.
Zombie Strippers.
Alien vs. Predator.
American Psycho one, two.

Not printed backwards, just installed backwards.

how can it be INSTALLED backwards? if it was installed backwards you'd be looking at the back of the poster which would be blank. i think you were correct originally, it was printed backwards.

A lot of movie posters are printed on both sides, with one side being backwards. This is because they are often installed on lit-up panels, and having the print on both sides makes it less saturated.

So, more than likely, this really was just installed backwards. The other side of the poster is probably correct.
