Hunger Games poster smears a really bad word on J-Law's face

The new poster for The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 announces that we only have a hundred days to go for the final installment in the Jennifer Lawrence fronted series. What it also does is smear a dirty swear word on her face. Accidentally, of course.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is only a hundred days away. How do we know that? Well, the promoters decided to announce it with a special new poster. How thoughtful of them. But while they were breaking their arms patting themselves on the back, they failed to notice a little something: A glaring curse word smeared across Jennifer Lawrence's face.

Look closely, dear reader, and see if you can spot it. The longer it takes you the better you ought to feel about yourself. If you've caught it already, pretend you haven't and keep looking.

Never before has the adage 'You had one job,' been more appropriate. And while goofs like these are unquestionably funny, we must paraphrase The Social Network: 'The internet isn't written in pencil, it's written in ink.'

The poster was quickly taken down, but as Josh Trank knows, screenshots are cruel.

It's interesting that not one person whose job it was to create/oversee this paid any attention. Before you call out Bollywood for being supreme leaders in laziness, sample this. It's not going away any time soon.

The final The Hunger Games movie is out on November 20th. It stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. It is directed by Francis Lawrence.

Maybe watch the trailer here. At least they didn't mess that up.
