Every Movie Poster Is The Same. Ever.

"Weapons, weapons, weapons... and a guitar - Just the way Johnny Cash intended."

That’s a lie.  There’s actually 13 styles of movie posters.  But that’s it.  I thought this was just a clever idea, until I saw all of these posters together like the one above, and I began to realize that it’s no wonder we remake / sequelize movies and t.v. shows all the time.  We can’t even create new concept art for a POSTER, let alone a two-hour movie.

This blog has a fascinating expose on how SO MANY movie posters look SO ALIKE. We show you the “sexy back” posters above, but click the link below to find the crazy amount of “tiny people on a beach, huge head in the clouds”, “women in red dresses”, “back to back”, “legs spread wide”, “in a bed” and more.  You’ll never be able to see a movie poster again without analyzing where you’ve seen it before.  Happy Tuesday!

About tmichaelmurdock

I watch movies and make movies. I'm a published fantasy novelist and video game freelance writer. I will be an avid SW:TOR player. I've written reviews for Ain't It Cool News under the moniker of Constable Kreegal. I ran a website called "Do Producers Dream of Celluloid Sheep". I run 619 Productions, LLC. I'm a Virgo. I use an HTC Evo because iPhones are lame. My favorite band is Counting Crows. I've seen more movies than you have. If sarcasm isn't your thing, you probably won't like me. I'm ok with that, even though it's your fault. The best advice my father ever gave me was, "Never let the truth get in the way of a good story". Stop reading this now and go check out the blog. It's way cooler than either of us.
