Last November, we showed how Hollywood not only loves to recycle movie ideas aka Rebooting but movie posters get the same kind of treatment. Not much has changed in the past year, and they’ve been included in the current crop put together by our friends over at Hollywood Leek. I guess they’re part of the same by recycling the similar story, but with some updating! So here’s they’re top 13 biggest movie poster cliches with a couple Mondo posters thrown in to show how they stand head and shoulders above the studios.
