List Rules Vote up the movie poster cliches that you're most sick of seeing.

In a modern Hollywood where remakes and sequels trump original ideas, are you at all surprised that so many movie posters look the same? This list showcases the most overused movie poster layouts, including the cringe-inducing "standing back to back" poster that so many bad movies (and some good) have used. There's no doubt that a great movie poster can really get you hyped for a film's release, but the ones shown on this list are a bit cookie cutter. This list was made votable so you could vote which common movie poster layouts disgust you the most.
