15 Popular Movie Poster Cliches - Header



There have been many movie posters released over the past century. The first ever poster was released in 1895 for the film, L’Arroseur arose, directed by Louis Lumière, which screened on 10th June of the same year. Although the movie only ran for a total of 49 seconds, this paved the way to a new age of advertising movies.
