Is the new Dune 2 poster supposed to look like a meme?

While it might have been met with rave reviews over the last few days, Denis Villeneuve's Dune 2 has proven pretty weird from a marketing perspective. Earlier this month the official Dune 2 X account gave us the most uncomfortable trailer I've ever seen. And now it's dropped a bizarre poster that many are comparing to a meme.

The new character banner image features Dave Bautista's Rabban and Josh Brolin's Gurney, two characters who do battle in the latest film. But with one having tantrum as the other looks on sagely, the poster is a hilarious dead ringer for 'crying wojak vs chad' meme.
