Back in the heady days of VHS, I put in my time at a video store, shelving and reshelving boxes, putting together standees, and staring at movie posters. Tons of movie posters. Lazy design tropes seeped into my subconscious, like the peering-over-the-sunglasses shot popular in the eighties, or the fact that any Jackie Chan movie must have a giant fist punching out toward the viewer. This particular subject has been tackled before, but I’ve found my favorite visual cliché to be the foreshortened gun barrel (clearly). I guess the kids call this a mashup.
