Movie tagline clichés

her_filmposter.jpg

We spend an awful amount of time harping on about alternative movie posters because, quite frankly, actual movie posters are generally rather disappointing.

Their repetitive nature is best showcased by their hopelessly generic choice of taglines. We've noticed an array of familiar lines being trotted out time and time again so we've put some of them together below.

Let us know of any you can think of at the bottom.

Something about things staying buried...

Something about trusting no-one

Something about never dying

Something about how far you'd go

Something about a world where...

Something about the most dangerous thing

Something small and something big
