Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/FriendsWithMoney'': The only person on the poster that matches up with their name is Frances [=McDormand=]. Joan Cusack, Catherine Keener, and Jennifer Aniston all do a bodyswap.

* [[http://www.heyuguys.com/images/2012/12/Beautiful-Creatures-UK-Poster.jpg This poster]] for Film/BeautifulCreatures may be the crowning example: ''seven'' cast members are listed, and only one of them matches up with their picture!

Why does this happen? Well, there could be a number of reasons. Maybe the text was laid out at a different time than the graphic. Maybe the actor's contracts stipulate whose name goes in which order (and the actor whose name comes first also has to be prominently in the middle of the poster). Maybe it was meant as some sort of joke. Or maybe TheyJustDidntCare.

Maybe it was meant as some sort of joke. It could be that as is the convention for Hollywood posters, the highest paid or top-billed actor is displayed on the poster as the central figure in the image, and all lower-billed actors placed outward; whereas the names of the same actors are arranged in order of prominence from left to right.

Or yeah, maybe TheyJustDidntCare.

* [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the-avengers-poster_8748.jpg The poster]] for ''Film/TheAvengers'' as seen on it's page. The only correct one is Creator/ScarlettJohansson. But Mark Ruffalo and Creator/TomHiddleston are nowhere to be found, at least in the flesh!
