You are looking at a film poster. There's the lineup of the movie's cast, or their floating heads, or their mirrored profiles. You look up at the names of the actors, and much to the annoyance of your inner Neat Freak, the names listed don't match up with the actors!
Why does this happen? Well, there could be a number of reasons. Maybe the text was laid out at a different time than the graphic. Maybe the actor's contracts stipulate whose name goes in which order. Or maybe They Just Didn't Care.
