Brazilian Designer Hints at Possible Plagiarism in New ‘Panic VI’ Poster; Compare images

Brazilian artist Gil Marcel has accused Paramount of plagiarizing one of his designs on the new poster for the movie Scream VI. Gil shared a statement on his social networks this Monday (2), revealing his surprise at identifying very similar characteristics with his project, released a month before the horror film’s recent release.

“On January 1st, 2022, I received the news with surprise that the studio responsible for marketing ‘Scream VI’ has released a new teaser poster. Several users on Twitter and Instagram who had already liked and shared my art, which was published on 12/03/21, pointed out that the art on the poster bears several similarities to my work,” the illustrator began, even stating that it arrived to mark the studio’s accounts when he published the work.

The designer explained that the similarities between the projects start with the artistic concept: a map of subway lines showing information from the five previous films, broken down by color. “Even the recognizable visual shapes of the franchise for me, the terrain is in the shape of Ghostface’s mask, and the subway lines reinforce the outline and relief of the mask and establish the relationships between the lines/movies; while in the official published graphic, the subway lines draw the outline of the mask,” Macel described.

He continued: “I’m not saying here that there was plagiarism (or that there wasn’t one), it’s just a matter of checking how similar the two pieces are on several levels and aspects, which rules out the possibility of that.” say would just be pure coincidence or an odd case of random creative decisions during a marketing campaign. Also, at no time do I question the quality of the work of the professional responsible for the piece. It’s not about which visual design is better.”
