Fun Movie Poster Photoshops

Mission One: Take classic or prestige movies and re-market them as B-movie exploitation thrillers, or "grindhouse" type movies.

Mission Two: Do the opposite. Take cinema-lint and discount-theater trash and dress them up pretty for their Sundance debut.

It's the second batch that's funnier. Partly because a lot of the "quality" movies re-imagined as trash I already thought pretty much sucked.

This is by a guy called Citizen Jerk. A lot of these movies have been given foreign-translation titles, because everything sounds better in French, you know?

Hopefully that's a broad enough hint for you uncultured, monlinguistic morons.


"Red Dawn" would sound nice translated into French, I think.

Thanks to Slublog.

Okay... Though I wasn't really digging on the classy-to-trashy 'shops, this one made me giggle. It's from, ahem, "Ass-Cobra."


Incidetally, by page 3 or 4 of the classy-to-trashy makeovers, they kinda abandon the premise and just begin making already-trashy or at least non-prestige movies into grindhouse ones. So you have one of Robocop, promising death and vengeance from beyond the grave, which is, you know, what the movie really was about anyhow.
