Fudging the details of a review in the name of spin is nothing new when it comes to movie posters. However, Studio Canal got really inventive when it came to Guardian movie critic Benjamin Lee’s review of Legend.

Do you see it? How about a closer look?
You gotta give them points for creativity.

Legend, a crime-drama about the infamous Kray twins, hits UK cinemas today and US theaters in October.
