17 Funny Movie Posters that are Literal Representations of the Titles

Recently we showed you minimalist, literal illustrations of iconic band names. Now what if the people who designed the marketing materials for movies took the same approach?

Meet Danish Ahmed, a graphic designer out of Mumbai, India, who found himself musing on this very question while catching a flick and decided to have some fun with a new series dubbed Literal Movie Posters!

“While checking out ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ movie poster recently, I wondered what if the poster showed an actual wolf at Wall Street,” Ahmed said about the project. “[It was] one of those moments when some random thought becomes stuck in your head. And then suddenly I would find so many movies that could have had very different, totally unconnected posters if we went by their exact titles!”
