10 of the Best Movie Poster Clichés (+ fun film junky extras)

In I saw... on February 10, 2012 at 10:09 am

It’s safe to assume there is only one production house in Hollywood making movie posters….

1. BIG HEADS IN THE SKY OVER LITTLE PEOPLE ON THE BEACH. 

You can assume: Two people fall in love, someone dies.

2. FROM THE BACK WITH WEAPONS

You can assume: The main character has some serious, underlying personal issues. 

3. TEXT OVER FACES TO MAKE IT LOOK EDGY

You can assume: Hipsters and film snobs will approve.

4. BACK TO BACK

You can assume: Apart from ‘Pretty Woman’, none of these films are worth watching. 

5. IN BED

You can safely assume: You will never actually see a sex scene.

6. THROUGH THE LEGS

You can assume: The film’s heroine is sexy and slutty.

7. THE EYE

You can assume: Some weird shit is going to go down. 

8. RUNNING FOR THEIR LIVES

You can asssume: The action star will be involved in some kind of horrific fatal accident at some point, but will emerge virtually unscathed. 

8. IT’S ALL ABOUT NATURE IN BLUE

You can assume: The animal’s mother will die at the beginning. 

10. THE LITTLE RED DRESS

You can assume: She never actually wears a red dress throughout the entire film. She will however be a complete tease to the male co-star throughout the entire film.

BONUS CLICHÉ!

Behind the Masks…

French actress Maïwenn Le Besco played the blue alien opera singer in The Fifth Element but it was an Albanian opera singer, Inva Mula-Tchako who provided the vocals.

I remember my mother having to assure me that ‘IT’ the clown was just a fictional character, played by a very nice man called Tim Curry.

Tony Moran as Michael Myers in Halloween.

Stuntman Mr. Haruo Nakajima is a pioneer of monster suit acting and played the original Godzilla.

Darth Vader actor David Prowse is actually banned from attending all LucasFilm associated StarWar conventions because he apparently ‘burnt too many bridges’ with George Lucas.

Peter Mayhew as Wookie Chewbacca, who will now never quite be the same.
