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.

* The [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/f7/Georgia_rule.jpg poster]] for ''Georgia Rule'' has a picture of the three stars, their names, and the tagline "Mother. Daughter. Grandaughter."--none of which properly line up.

* A quite serious offender is [[http://cineticias.files.wordpress.com/2009/11/batman_returns_ver8.jpg the main poster]] for ''Film/BatmanReturns'', which switches the places of Creator/MichellePfeiffer and Creator/DannyDeVito. Not like it's hard to distinguish them in spite of this, but if taken at face value, [=DeVito=] got ''quite'' attractive all of a sudden, while Pfeiffer really let herself ''go''.
