Awesome: Thirteen Movie Poster Trends

It is just terrific, and I am actually insanely jealous of this achievement by Christophe Courtois. After the jump, check out a gallery of thirteen movie poster trends. As a massive movie poster fan, this is heaven to me. But what does it tell us? That movie posters are nothing but advertising and follow the demands of the consumer? That posters copy each other? That posters copy each other in order to remind people of the films being copied, and therefore that it's nothing more than advertising again? That Christophe Courtois is a clever bastard with a keen eye, and he is actually fooling us into thinking deeper by pooling similar posters together? Probably a little bit of everything I suppose. Some of the trends are pretty generic, and putting posters together in a collage creates quite an alarming effect. But other trends ("Legs Wide Spread") are certainly not generic, and spark a whole range of questions. Either way, I will think about it more, and maybe make my own trend. This is too cool... I wanted to do it :(
