I’m a huge fan of movie posters and can be frequently heard bemoaning the fact that, with all the money pumped into advertising campaigns, the majority of the posters are horrendously uninteresting. Given how many of the posters on this 7 Romantic Comedy Cliches list from Empire are for pretty awful films, you’d think they’d at least try to make the most interesting poster possible to hook some people (like a lot of B-movie and Grindhouse promoters did). It’s especially dispiriting when there are people like Olly Moss and a million other people coming up with cool posters for movies just for fun (granted, some of the posters require some foreknowledge of the film).
Anyway, here’s just some of what you’ll see. It’s especially fun to see which actors recur in the most posters.
