(click to enlarge)

If you haven’t noticed, for the most part, movie posters tend to completely suck lately. It seems pretty clear that they use one of a few basic composition archetypes, but until now, I don’t think we’ve ever had such a detailed compilation of the trend.

This is a series from Oh No They Didn’t! that shows all the various sins of lazy poster design. Above we have “Tiny People on the Beach, Giant Heads in the Clouds,” which is a particularly ergregoius one. But the list doesn’t stop there, as there are plenty more comparisons to be made. Chances are you’ve noticed them yourself, but now we have physical proof as to how much repetition is really going on. Check out the other collections below:
