Cheeky movie posters that take their titles very literally

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Design on Wednesday 2 July 2014

We’re thoroughly tickled by these graphical re-imaginings of famous movie posters. Indian designer Danish Ahmed conjured up this series of images that take their titles very literally, and are hilarious besides.

There is nothing more satisfying that bearing witness to instant karma. What we wouldn’t have given to have had front row seats for Antonio Rodrigues Mororó’s unfortunate run-in with a porcupine last week.

Stage fright. We’ve had it at some point in our lives, usually when we’ve had to get up in front of an audience and wow them on the spot. But would that stage fright be worse or lessened if you didn’t have all day, week, or month to worry about it beforehand? That’s the interesting question our friends at Heineken set out to address when they tested the courage of a handful of amateur Irish performers by inviting them to what they THOUGHT was an intimate casting to showcase their unique talent. Ha! No way.
