When someone mentions sharks, what’s your first thought? For me, it’s definitely the iconic Steven Spielberg movie Jaws. Photographer Euan Rannachan recently recreated the movie poster, but unlike the original – this one is a real close-up of a great white shark.
Of all NASA’s achievements over the years, this has to be up there amongst the best. It’s certainly the most hilarious. It turns out, that on every mission since the first International Space Station mission in 2000, NASA has created expedition posters. Posters that typically include a group photo of the crew.
After a while, I guess they started to feel a bit boring. And maybe a bit cringy. So, they decided to take things up a notch or two. These mission posters now parody some of the most famous movie posters out there. And they’re awesome. They’re used to advertise expeditions and also hung in various NASA facilities.
The new Tom Raider movie with Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft is coming next year. The trailer is out, and so is the official poster. However, Vikander’s neck looks so long in the poster that it seems to provoke more comments than the actual movie. And on Twitter, it’s slowly turning into a meme.
Usually, it’s female bodies that cause the Photoshop controversy. This time, not so much. It seems that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has had a little Photoshop treatment for the Shot Caller movie posters, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. It looks suspiciously like the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s body from the four year old Snitch movie poster.
It was spotted by Scott Wampler of Birth.Movies.Death. It’s not surprising that many others had noticed it, as Snitch wasn’t met with the best of receptions. So, perhaps the Shot Caller poster designer was relying on the fact that so few people ended up seeing it. Scott’s initial tweet has now had more than 10,000 shares and spawned several parody images.
Taking some rather ordinary images, as well as some exceptionally good ones, he creates amazing posters that wouldn’t look out of place on the walls of your local movie theatre.
