Movie posters about animals tend to be sapphire. There’s also all that thin, white text in capital letters, and often pairs of figures in profile or from the back. And hey, a huge white moon can’t hurt.

Any black and white poster with a shock of red flame is trying to tell you it’s an action flick, and that you can expect more than four explosions...

Have you ever felt like you’re seeing the same movie poster over and over again? Well, you are, in a way. As it turns out, film posters have several very simple tools (color, text size, figure placement, etc) to signify what kind of movie they’re advertising without you really even having to read its name or tagline.


Most of the credits goes to french blogger Christophe Courtois.
