This is my first blog, and I've chosen a tricky topic to explore: Similar Movie Posters. Dun Dun DUN!!
Did you ever look at a movie poster and say, ' Hey, that movie poster is cool. Wait, It looks familiar...Have I seen one just like this before?'. I have. Browsing online, I noticed quite a few promo posters that looked way too alike. Some may be intentional, some may be coincedental, but you know what? We cannot resist them. So I will show you them. Here are teh case studies of a disorder I call movie-poster-identicallity-ness-ous-ion.
First, Exhibit A. We have here the Epic movie entitled 'Jennifer's Body'. Hot, right? Next to it, we have the HBO-smash-hit 'True Blood'. So true, right? Look at how close they resemble each other. Oh, and True Blood came out first, just so you know. Jennifer likes to copy other peoples' bodies, hm? Well, they both have nice lips.
New Name: 'Jennifer's True Blood'
Tagline: These girls give mean liplocks.
Moral: Lay off the red lipstick.
Now, Exhibit B, we have the remake of the German horror flick ' Funny Games', although the title is false; the movie was not funny at all. Next to it, we have the indie-teenager horror flick 'All the Boys Love Mandy Lane', and yes we do. These too are way too identical. Two hot blondes with messy hair and fearful faces: coincident?
New Name: ' All the Boys Love Funny Games, Mandy Lane! '
Tagline: Green eyes, blonde hair, scared s***less.
Moral: Don't play funny games with Mandy Lane.
Exhibit C is just plain weird. I stumbled upon this one on the web, and I'd like to thank [URL]http://gwrecords.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/toothfairy.jpg[/URL] for that.
New Name: Tooth Legion
Tagline: It's all in the poster.
Moral: Don't try and handle the tooth.
Well, my work here is done. Thank you for participating in my case study of movie identicallity-ness-ous-ion. :) Comment your thoughts.
