"The Ticker Tape"

Take a still, a cartoon version of a still or even a graphic that you feel represents the movie, then add the cast's headshots in a row below. Hey presto, you've got this sort of film poster, and one that communicates everything you need it to: these people (who you, the viewer, hopefully like) are in this motion picture. Job done.

Poster Checklist

The name of the movie.
Stars' faces in box adjacent to each other.
Those headshots in a variety of backdrops or colours.
On occasion, one of the stars of the ensemble is pulling a face.
Imposing artwork or still from the movie.
