Can You Match These Movies To Their Posters!?

Can You Match These Movies To Their Posters!?

Watching movies is one of the greatest pastimes. Our imaginations come to life in fictional (or nonfiction) films where we experience things that would otherwise be foreign to us. There are movies where aliens come to earth, mummies come to life, or a kid who never wants to grow up can also fly. What every movie has in common is that before it came out in theaters, it was promoted through a poster that made it iconic. Now, do you think you can match the movie poster to the movie? Are you that in touch with that pop culture side of yourself? There are a few that may be so legendary that you are sure to know then, but there are others that are not as easy and that you probably did not know were a part of a certain film. 

Times are changing in the way films are advertised, but posters are always going to be a thing and there is not a chance that that will change. Posters are collectible items these days too, so it may be smart to start collecting ones so one day they will be worth a whole lot of something. In the mean time, see if you can answer these, most people had a hard time!
