Movie Title Typo Illustrations

We all know how funny misheard lyrics are: now it's time for the movie equivalent.

North Carolina-based Reddit illustrator Austin Light set himself a personal project of illustrating his favourite movie title typos seen on Reddit every day for a month.

The results are, predictably, superb, with images of such future classics as Finding Emo (“An insufferable teenage fish runs away from home. His father contemplates searching for him”) and Dive (“Ryan Gosling plays a mysteriously appealing scuba diving guide who gets mixed up in some shady business. He has like 12 lines the whole movie. He also stomps a shark to death”).

We've picked our favourite 10 below, head to Austin's Reddit post to see the lot and click here to preorder prints and t-shirts.
