Nicole Kidman is set to return to the big screen soon in the blockbuster Viking drama, The Northman.

But there’s a glaring mistake in the official poster for the Robert Eggers-directed film.

For some reason, the title of the movie was left off a number of posters that popped up in New York this week.

One filmgoer who spotted the blunder shared it on Twitter, which sparked some interesting conspiracy theories.

‘Well if this “error” was intentional to get buzz, it’s working. Never heard of this until this morning after seeing three tweets like this,’ one person commented.

‘The bus stop posters have the title,’ someone responded. ‘It’s only the subway posters. I sincerely doubt it was an intentional attempt to get buzz.’
