"The Line-Up"

Aside from the Chocolate Box format, this is probably the most prevalent ensemble movie poster trope out there, taking the idea of a identity parade and making it just a smidge more cinematic. Of course, in making a poster this way, you're bound to also use Bad Photoshop and, to an extent, scenes from the film, so in many ways it's a few tropes rolled into one.

Poster Checklist

The name of the movie.
The tagline for the movie.
That row we mentioned.
The most famous people in the middle.
Conflicting eyelines.
