Who decides what's on a movie poster?

Who has the final say when it comes to the content of movie posters and DVD covers? Is the director or writer allowed to protest the advertising for a movie?

The specific movie I'm thinking about is Transamerica
: It's ostensibly a trans-friendly kind of film, where the protagonist is not at all confused about her gender presentation. The poster
, on the other hand, is embarrassing. She stands outside of men's room and a women's room, unsure of how to proceed.
Who can I blame for this? Is it the producer's fault? An ad agency's?
