  66. 66. 1 Walt Disney Studios took a unique approach to promote their 2016 film Zootopia. They parodied the posters of famous movies of that year and altered their title to blend with the theme of their film. Shown in the next slide are the recreated posters of two 2016 movies. Using the clues given in the posters, give me the modified version of both the titles.
  67. 67. 2 The reason for this movie’s poster to be so entrenched in pop culture is its simple, clean design by John Alvin which uses negative space and shadows to create a sense of power. The protagonist blends in and out, creating an optical illusion that alludes to his character’s unpredictable nature. The poster perfectly matches the tone, from the actor’s angry expression and ready revolver, to the oddly amusing way his left hand floats in empty space. Adding to the poster’s sense of menace is the blood-red font with narrowly kerned letters to create tension in the design. Identify the film.
  68. 68. Scarface
  69. 69. 3 Even though this particular design in the movie’s poster is perceived by people as something else, it is actually made up of seven women’s bodies. The director suggested using an old photograph taken by surrealist artist Salvador Dali. Rumor has it that the bodies are a reference to the victims in the movie. This makes the poster even more chilling, implying the stillness associated with the movie’s title. Name the movie which used this photograph of Salvador Dali in its poster. The photo has been edited for obvious reasons. Original picture slightly varies

  71. 71. 4 Though ____ has a physical effect, it is more soothing than stimulating and thus can evoke compassion, happiness, warmth and tranquility. The use of ____ in these ultra-violent movie spectacles that bring horrifying garishness, obscures the sense of reality and the nature of the characters. In a broader sense, it keeps the audience guessing what normality is in these characters world and almost accepts the blood and violence as their day to day. These are the points obtained from the abstract of a journal which talks in detail about the usage of ____ in movie posters for the above said reasons. Some of the examples cited were : Fight Club, Baby Driver, Inherent Vice, Drive. What is being talked about?
  72. 72. Usage of Pink Colour in Movie Posters
  73. 73. 5 Poster designer Saul Bass puns on the movie’s title, aligning the dissection of a human body with the dissection of a body of evidence in a court of law. Saul’s fascination with the primitive is evident here, Each piece looks as if it has been cut out by an untutored hand. The hand lettering in various sizes and forms signals inconsistency. Every version of every letter is different, just as every version of events is different in this film about a lawyer who comes to doubt his client’s story. This is a detailed analysis of the poster of which 1959 film based on a 1958 novel of the same name?
  74. 74. Anatomy of a Murder
  75. 75. 6 Though the other version of this movie’s poster is a well known minimalist, the idea for this version came from the director himself who wanted to feature the connection between the two main characters as a homage to Michelangelo’s painting The Creation of Adam. Given that the titular character is often considered an allegorical stand-in for Jesus, it’s fitting that the poster replicates the awe and reverence as much as Michelangelo gave to his depiction of God. And to add a personal touch, the illustrator John Alvin’s daughter posed for it instead of the actor himself. Which iconic poster was created thus?

  117. 117. 19 At that time, the set of Rear Window (1954) was the largest indoor set built at Paramount Studios. The entire picture was shot on one set, which required months of planning and construction. Some of the buildings were five or six stories high. The size of the set exceeded the space offered by the soundstage. Hitchcock felt the buildings weren't tall enough. To accommodate the enormous set, a higher ceiling was required. In order to tackle this problem, Alfred Hitchcock came up with a solution and asked the production company to do something so that the buildings could fit in with the studio while also appearing tall enough as he expected. What was done as a solution to this problem?

  121. 121. 21 In 2006, Paramount studios paid $75,000 to settle negligence claims after a film marketing stunt sparked a series of bomb scares last year. Newspaper vending machines were fitted with devices that played a certain music whenever the door was opened which people mistook for bombs and reported them to police. A large area in West Los Angeles was evacuated for 90 minutes after someone spotted a 6inch red plastic box attached to a newspaper dispenser by wires. And a Los Angeles County arson squad blew up an LA Times news vending machine in Santa Clarita. The matter was settled out of court, after the US attorney's office sent a letter to the studio and the LA Times saying it intended to sue. These were the backfires of the promotion for which 2006 movie?
