A Brief History Of Open Legs Movie Posters | Transporter 2
Transporter 2

Released: 2005
Director: Louis Leterrier
Starring: Jason Statham, Alessandro Gassman, Amber Valletta, Kate Nauta, Matthew Modine

This poster – seen in cinemas over on the continent – does have its origins in an actual scene in the movie, specifically the kiddie hospital fight scene between Kate Nauta’s Lola and Jason Statham’s Frank. That said, at no point in that scene does he have a gun: instead he fires a propane tank at her from a shopping trolley. True story.

8 Broken Lizard!
Seriously, the Broken Lizard movies often have a pair of long legs on the posters. Super Troopers being the main culprit, Puddle Cruiser I suppose is more of a midriff shot, Club Dread is more a full body shot from behind and Beerfest has two women, legs apart on each edge of the poster. More

9 Kingpin
I can't believe you actually think that Vanessa Angel's pose in the Kingpin poster is a Photoshop disaster - it's a joke, playing on the very poster design trope covered by this article! More
