It appears that in the world of cinema, the equivalent of judging a book by its cover is to watch a movie solely based on its poster design.
A new meme that is making its rounds involves film buffs comparing promotional art to the perceived gists of movies, and the differences couldn’t be any greater.
The Brokeback Mountain poster, for instance, depicts a cisgendered family, but everybody now knows the film helped propel LGBTQ+ views to mainstream media. Knives Out is a Cluedo-esque murder mystery, but it was Chris Evans’ sweater that apparently stole the show.
The resulting memes are reminiscent of the hilarious reviews written by Amazon customers lamenting about how the products look nothing like what was advertised.
In the mood to put on a movie? HBO has released 500 hours of films and shows to help fans cope with self-isolation.
