Movie Posters That Look The Same

Movie Posters That Look The Same

Wait, I’ve already seen this movie! Or have I? It’s hard to tell nowadays with all the posters looking alike.

As Christophe Courtois cleverly noticed, the people in the film industry rarely bother to come up with an original poster for their movie. He organized similar posters in groups to show us the most common clichés in poster design.

Apparently, this is helpful when taking your girl to the movies, because you can guess the movie content pretty accurately. A few tips from the expert: stay clear of anything having a couple with their backs turned on each other or laying in bed, and you’ve made your choice 98% safe from watching a chick flick. To impress her with an artsy drama, pick the one with the most letters written over it. A big staring eye gets you a sci-fi movie, and if you’re in the mood for an action thriller, go for the blurred running silhouettes in either blue or orange. The last piece of advice – if you see Adam Sandler on it, just run and don’t look back.

    A lot of these in each category are from the same movie or the same series. That’s intentional! If all of the MI movie posters show a profile of Tom Cruise’s face people will instantly know it’s an MI movie. And when there are multiple posters for the same movie they use the same format or theme to tie them together.
