I wasn't aware that "Joe Dirt" was a "big independent film".

James Cameron's Avatar was a fantastic horror.

@aquaman1227: LMAO! It was "a horror" but it was intended to be "epic action adventure"...

Just like Eddie Murphy's "Pluto Nash" was "a horror" too, but intended to be "sci-fi action comedy".

@kitteh9: Did YOU make this? If so it's even more awesome! (Don't get me wrong, I liked it! 4.0!)

5Cats, it's not about the movies, it's about the posters.

@kitteh9: Well yeah, I get that. But I don't know how an example of a "romantic comedy" has a HORROR movie poster.
And There's the blue colour, the moon, no animals except -you- humans!
I'm just sayin...

But yeah, there's 100% for sure a pattern in movie posters. A "formula" even... Template? Cookie Cutter?

@Dead_Kittens: Most movies have multiple posters, almost all of them in fact. So perhaps some "picking & choosing" is involved, but it doesn't invalidate the theory at all.

PFFFTT!! Tom Cruise is a pathetic little man. I can never see why they cast him as some sort of bad ass action hero.

Some of these do deviate from the overall "trend".

One sheet's are a visual language. It's how a person makes a decision on what to see without watching previews.

Generally, they tell you who's in it and what type of picture at-a-glance.

I'm impressed! That's a literal visual essay, and the point is well made.

Cat People (1942) is NOT a "rom-com" it's a classic horror film, and highly recommended!



Not many animals in this film... except the "human" kind...



Best... Movie... Ever!

Tomcats (1977) Apparently based on a true story of 4 dudes who go on a rape & murder spree...
The Tuscon Killings Yikes!

Many of these are BAD movies! I guess that's because MOST movies are bad...

But Not these two!

(The cartoon, NOT the Hollywood movie!)

Well, to be fair, if Little Miss Sunshine's movie poster was any color but yellow, that would be a weird missed opportunity.
