What Happened To The Art Of Movie Poster Design: Terminator: Dark Fate

Sigh... Another day, another putrid movie poster. Seems like there's been a veritable plague of awful designs lately. Case in point: This poster for the upcoming Terminator: Dark Fate, the latest attempt to ruin the franchise.

Someone please explain to me what the hell's going on with the perspective in this poster. It appears that Grandma Connor's walking down a desert road, which recedes to the vanishing point behind her. So far so good, as that's how it should look.

But then it looks like there's a second road rising up in the extreme foreground, which has little or nothing to do with the rest of the design. I guess maybe it's supposed to look like Old Lady Sarah's walking behind a slight rise in the road. Unfortunately that's not how hills work.

The sickly urine yellow color scheme is a nice touch as well.

This can't possibly be a real poster released by a major movie studio. It's got to be a first year design student's project, right? It's the only explanation.
