There have been a lot of discussions about the new Alex Garland film, Civil War, which recently had the best opening weekend box office in film studio A24's history. People on both sides of the binary political spectrum have enjoyed it, with conservatives seeing it as a critique of journalists and liberals seeing it as a takedown of the authoritarian far-right. The major criticism of Civil War is that it's too vague, with Garland intentionally avoiding specific ideologies in order to get a wider audience. Well, the film's generating a new discussion now, thanks to A24 releasing a series of posters created by artificial intelligence.
