A Brief History Of Open Legs Movie Posters | Piranha 3D

Released: 2010
Director: Alexandre Aja
Starring: Elisabeth Shue, Steven R. McQueen, Adam Scott, Jerry O'Connell, Ving Rhames, Jessica Szohr, Christopher Lloyd, Richard Dreyfuss

This one, we endorse. Wearing its sleazy heart on its sleazy sleeve, we’d be disappointed if we didn’t see a semi-naked woman and some piranhas. But mostly a semi-naked woman. It’s what you’re expecting from a movie called Piranha 3D, really. Can’t wait for what they’ve got lined up for Piranha 3DD…

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
