Can You Guess The Movie From The Zoomed-In Poster?

Let Our Expert Quiz Confirm It For You

To some, the humble movie poster is a relic of a bygone era. After all, now that we can access movie trailers at the drop of a hat with the latest gizmo in our pocket, we no longer rely on a passing glimpse of a billboard to know that the latest Marvel film is in cinemas. In fact, with multiplexes and studio juggernauts extending their reach into the lucrative Chinese market and pumping out ever-bigger and ever-flashier movies, there's always a blockbuster to sink your teeth into, whether or not you see a poster.

That said, the medium of the movie poster has generated some classic images over the years. Whether it's the hand-drawn, super-saturated look of a 1950s action flick, or the text-heavy aesthetic of a late-00s drama, there's been a lot of innovation. These posters need to grab your eyeballs in less than a second and pitch you an entire movie, and it's fascinating to see how artists over the years have attempted to do just that. Sure, some posters are just the star in situ, but some are gloriously busy masterpieces. Frankly, some posters will burn your retinas just to get your attention.

That's how we came up with this quiz - some movie posters are so memorable that you can recognise them from only a small section of the image. Whether it's their unique colour palettes or tell-tale celebrity faces, you might surprise yourself with what you know. Unlock the back of your mind, and you'll realise you've got a lot of movie poster knowledge lying around! Read More
