I've seen this movie [poster] before...

Yes, every summer now brings us a spate of formula movies that we all feel like we've already seen at least one time before. But now it seem that even the movie posters themselves are interchangeable.

I've covered one of the more common motifs before here and here. But here are some of the more current poster layouts:

The main action-hero character in front of an exploding fireball...


The big X...

The fragmented, David Hockneyesque photo collage...


The mysterious movie-title-only-on-a-dramatic-black-background...

The big intriguing closeup with the title stamped over it...


The weird two-half-faces joined to make a single face...


The action-hero looking battered but unbowed, weapon in hand...

A guy slouching in a chair, legs splayed...


The shoulder-to-shoulder heroes, with the bigger star out front...

The sideways poster with black silhouette and steely blue sky...


And finally, the whole gang, striding purposefully at camera...

And that's just from a couple recent internet searches. Chances are, there's already some additional entries for each.
