Disturbing Movie Poster Mirrored Brittany Murphy’s Death

- By Bossip Staff

DVD rental company Redbox is having disturbing promotional posters for the Brittany Murphy film Deadline pulled from 19,000 of their kiosks.

The image is particularly disturbing because Murphy was found unconscious in the shower on the morning of her death.

“We are removing the box art images from our displays,” Redbox spokeswoman Laura Dihel tells E! News. “We will continue to carry her film, but we will not be featuring the box art. We have 19,000 locations, and to be honest, I can’t tell you if this particular art is up at all the locations.”

Redbox says they began removing the Deadline artwork Tuesday and hope to complete the task by Jan. 1. The box art was also pulled from the company’s website.

Talk about life imitating art. SMH.

    Her hubby set her up.

    @KeepNit2Real, I don’t know if her husband set her up, but I’m wondering why they didn’t check for Arsenic poisoning. Symptoms of arsenic poisoning begin with headaches…When the poisoning becomes acute, symptoms may include diarrhea, vomiting, … cramping muscles, stomach pain, and more convulsions and usually, if untreated, will result in death.

    Hadn’t Ms. Murphy complain of stomach pains for a week, as well as some of the other symptoms?

    As for Redbox removing the current artwork from the DVD cover, perhaps they should but it really isn’t necessary. BTW, I rented that same DVD with the artwork from Redbox, my complaint wasn’t the artwork, but the fact that the DVD was damaged and I didn’t get to see the last 10 – 15 minutes of the film, and Redbox didn’t refund my money, now that’s disturbing. And it doesn’t matter that the rental fee was a dollar, they still should have provided a refund.
