Funny Posters Feature Literal Translations of Movie Titles

Once a movie becomes popular, a literal translation of the title tends to be overlooked and replaced with direct connections to the stories, actors, and plots. However, when looking at some recent film titles, India-based illustrator and designer Danish Ahmed wondered what would happen if he transformed the exact words into literal posters based off of the actual meanings of each word.

In minimalist style, Ahmed developed an extensive series of Literal Movie Posters that show things like a wolf actually sitting on Wall Street and a steel robot taking the place of Superman in Man of Steel. In the redesigned posters, the artist has transformed his clever word play into visually appealing designs.

Ahmed says the project was “one of those moments when some random thought becomes stuck in your head. And then suddenly I would find so many movies that could have had very different, totally unconnected posters if we went by their exact titles!”
