Primary image changes

This morning I noticed that a considerable number of primary images (possibly hundreds) have been changed. Many of these changes are very unusual and are definitely not in line with IMDb's primary image policy.

Here are a few examples to demonstrate what I mean:
Return of the Jedi's primary image now has the title 'Revenge of the Jedi'
Zootopia's is now a teaser poster
Vertigo's is now too long and doesn't fit on the screen
The Hateful Eight's is now an individual character poster
Birdman's is now a fan-made poster
Alien's has been changed from its iconic and instantly-recognisable poster to something I've never seen before

Others include:
Schindler's List
The Magnificent Seven
The Evil Dead
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation
The Incredibles 2
Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
Ant-Man and the Wasp

The list goes on.

Normally I would request to change the primary images, but the scale of the problem makes this difficult and suggests there is an underlying issue here. I cannot recall so many primary images all changing at once. I suspect a fault in the system has allowed these changes to be made - hence why I'm reporting this here.

Edit: the primary images in question have only been changed on the website and not the app. The primary images shown on the Top 250 are also unchanged. This strikes me as being unusual (unless they are just slow to update).
