Clichés work. That’s why they’re considered clichés in the first place, right? For every situation, there’s usually some cliché phrase to use like giving your condolences or saying it’s not him/her, it’s you. We all know them. But what about movie poster clichés? Do you ever notice how the movie industry has been enticing us with practically the same shitty poster for so many years?
Here are some examples:
Nothing says indie film than saturating your background to the brightest shade of yellow.
Okay, we get it.
Well, how about that movie about two people who tend to clash but eventually work things out or fall in love?
Gotta do it back to back, huh?
There’s also that unmistakable hero moment accompanied by scenes of destruction.
If they were such heroes, why is everything ALWAYS destroyed on their posters? Ugghh.
The “legs shot” is such a huge cliché for movies with a sexy lead or plot.
That one’s pretty annoying to a feminist, you know.
Can you get more dramatic than having someone’s face or silhouette in the clouds above the ocean, or something like that?
How very original… not.
The overlaid text is one of the most desirable clichés among the bunch.
At least the posters don’t look ridiculous when put together, right?
There’s always that lady in red. Most probably, it’s a rom-com.
Romantic comedies, along with their posters, are so predictable. Damn! Ha ha!
You just know something terrible is gonna happen when you see that eye. Yikes!
This one usually indicates dreadful things to come so watch out.
Are there any other posters where you can find some similarities plot-wise? Make a collage and let us know! See ya!
