Ace Literal movie posters

We don't envy the process of writing a movie title. Usually a collection of adjectives, metaphors and allusions, you've a handful of words to tease at the plot and convince audiences to part with their pennies.

Most of us will head to the cinema with a vague idea of what our chosen flick will be about - but there's plenty of room for misunderstanding if we were to take titles at literal face value.

That's the premise of this rather brilliant film poster series by Indian illustrator Danish Ahmed. The Wolf of Wall Street could have been an entirely different, Disney-esque adventure, while office rom-com Avatar might not have worked so well in 3D.

Check out Ahmed's Behance page for more of his work.
