Cannes 2019: Movie poster with Melania Trump look-alike holding decapitated Trump head called 'disgusting'

The poster for a new film that debuted at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival is causing quite a stir online.

To start, "When Women Rule the World," which is Sheldon Silverstein's directorial debut, boasts quite the notable tagline: "Meet the First Lady of the Future with Heads of State." Accompanying the words is a bikini-clad Melania Trump look-alike named Maria Putin (played by Anna Hera) holding two decapitated heads: One looks like President Donald Trump wearing a Make America Great Again hat, while the other is a bloodied zombie.

The poster channels that of the iconic B-movies from the '60s and '70s, and a tweet calling attention to it garnered replies calling it "absolutely disgusting."

"The level of depravity is still shocking, even though I thought I'd seen it all, they just keep on getting, lower, and lower and more and more disgusting," someone else remarked about the image.

Melania Trump attended the General Debate of the 73rd session of the General Assembly at the United Nations alongside her husband. Her black dress was thought to be a slight towards President Trump as many people on the internet saw her outfit as a gesture of support for sexual assault survivors.

The Trumps welcomed Polish President Andrzej Duda and his wife Agata Kornhauser-Duda to the White House in September. The problem? Melania was wearing a wool coat while it was still 80 degrees outside. Furthermore, she didn't remove her coat while dining inside with the Polish first lady, which Twitter deemed not the best hostess tactic.

Melania Trump tried her hand at gardening for the second time to plant an Eisenhower Oak at the White House in August. The $4000 skirt and sky-high Louboutin heels she wore to dig soil sent the internet aflame. 

"Melania is launching her new line of Gardening Attire, accompanied by the standard 4-inch heels," joked one Twitter user.

FLOTUS stepped out on August 20th in Maryland to promote her Be Best initiative and discuss cyberbullying. To the event, she wore the once-controversial pussy-bow blouse -- the same style she sported during the 2016 presidential debate after the Access Hollywood leak.

Arguably her most controversial outfit yet, Melania sported a jacket emblazoned with the words "I Really Don't Care Do You" to visit migrant children separated from their parents in Texas. The Zara jacket retails for $39.

Following Ivana Trump's controversial interview in October, Melania donned an emerald green shirtdress from British brand Cefinn to an official visit to Lily's Place to visit with families affected by addiction. It's the first non-profit infant recovery center in the world. 

The dress was designed by former first lady of Britain Samantha Cameron. Is she reminding everyone of her status?

Alongside President Trump, FLOTUS arrived in Vegas in October to pay their respects to the 50 victims of the Las Vegas shooting. Her all-black, closed-off look drew some major criticism on Twitter. 

"I'm making a public plea to Melania Trump: stop with the sunglasses (and the heels at disaster areas)," one Twitter user wrote.

Twitter had a lot to say about this picture of FLOTUS getting down and dirty in the garden established by former first lady Michelle Obama. 

Her $1380 Balmain shirt wasn't the most appropriate choice for the event.

Though this photo was taken at the White House Congressional Picnic in June, the Trumps tweeted a photo from the event to wish the country a happy Labor Day the following September. 

"We are building our future with American hands, American labor, American iron, aluminum and steel," POTUS wrote. Ironically, Melania's dress was designed by Mary Katrantzou, a Greek-born British designer. Twitter had *a lot* to say.

Off to help Hurricane Harvey victims, Melania made headlines when she boarded Air Force One in sky-high stilettos.

"God grant me the serenity not to comment on the shoes," wrote one Twitter user.

While visiting Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust Memorial, Melania sported a white sleeveless dress. Twitter wasn't happy with her sporting bare shoulders at the memorial.

Wrote one user, "Melania cover your arms up, show some respect."

"Geez. The lambasted Michelle Obama for baring her arms and her is Melania Trump in conservative Israel with a sleeveless dress," said another.

Silverstein told The Hollywood Reporter that the film is high-concept, sci-fi and delves into themes that align with the #MeToo movement.

In one particularly notable plot point, "Donald Trump gets in a fight with Putin over who has the biggest penis, and he pushes a button that starts World War III. … It’s kind of crazy."

"The film has a consciousness and has something to say about what’s going on in the world," he added.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Silverstein also condemned President Trump in his interview with THR, calling him a "moron" who "doesn't care about the environment."

"It's all about money to him," he went on. "It's a shame he got elected and [this movie] is a put-down on all of that."

As for the reception that it has gotten so far during the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, the writer-director claimed that "everybody seems to like it so far."
