15 Overused Movie Poster Themes
You'll never look at movie posters the same way again.
1. Black and white posters with hints of flames.
This is Michael Bay’s genre of movies, a lot of action filled with a shit ton of unnecessary explosions.
2. People’s eyes covered up.
In these movies, the blindfolded hero must face justice.
3. Black and white with red block text.
These movies have more of the comic book style of story telling and visual appearance.
4. The overwhelming yellow.
The obnoxious amount of yellow basically yells out “i’m a big independent fim”!
5. The person with their back facing you.
This back shot is showing that these individuals are most likely lonely heros, vigilantes, and or bad ass mother f@#kers.
6. Close up eye ball shots.
Most likely for horror films.
7. Legs spread.
Usually means there is going to be sex involved and hot babes.
8. Pictures made up by many other images or objects.
This style of poster is made up by the elements of what the movie is usually based on.
9. Photo booth faces with overlaid text.
It tells you that the character is the most important and is probably getting paid a lot.
10. The red dress.
Usually means it’s going to be a romantic comedy.
11. The color sapphire.
Means it’s going to be about animals.
12. A person running from nothing down a blue street.
It’s probably going to be a thriller.
13. Silhouettes in front of an ocean and faces in the sky.
You got yourself a very sad movie, but yet uplifting and touching.
14. People standing back to back.
These are usually romantic comedies with some tough love involved.
