I get it: sometimes it's cool to have lights showing in a photo. It adds a kind of "Hollywood" effect to an image, and can make a subject look like a star. I think that is what the Expendables 3 promotion team was going for, but they added lights that not only aren't doing anything to a photo, but straight up don't make any sense.
You could make an argument for some of the lights, but then there are others where the perspective is weird or the placement doesn't compute logically.
"Let's have this weird joint just sitting next to Jason Statham's cheek."
"Because Beauty dishes are cool, and stuff."
I mean, there is clearly a shadow across his right side, so what the heck is the octo box doing? At least use one of those strip boxes tossed willy-nilly through some of the other images.
You look at them all together, and it's pretty clear they were all added in post. Badly.
I think my least favorite is Harrison Ford's. Maybe the movie will be better than these photos?
