2020 hasn't been a great year for movies, with cinemas across the world forced to close during the coronavirus pandemic. Thanks to streaming services though, a few new films are still managing to sneak out this year, including an upcoming biopic of inventor Nikola Tesla. The film's poster has just been revealed – and we have some questions.

Directed by Michael Almerevda, Tesla follows the inventor as he fights an uphill battle to bring his revolutionary electrical system to fruition during the 1800s. The film is billed as a biographical drama – but based on the poster, it could easily be a 1980s musical fantasy. Many of the best print ads contain several messages, but this has left us particularly baffled.
