Why Movie Posters All Look the Same

We've noticed movie posters becoming more formulaic for decades. Teal and blue. A woman's backside. Looking through legs. But the more research that goes into what catches the eye, the more every movie is using each factor, until they are so alike that there's little need to actually notice any one of them. Blockbusters have a diagonal feature. Romantic comedies have two people back-to-back, with a red title on a white background, or yellow on blue if it's French. Read about how you can look at a movie poster and learn nothing at all about the movie, but everything about marketing at The Wrap. -via reddit

Many of the top streamers on twitch have "neon" bedrooms now. I think the psychology here is - people love looking at fire and lazers. And black is probably the best contrasting color when you really want something to "pop". If your movie poster is all "light" colors, its possible no one will stop and look. Unless the actor/actress on the poster is super popular anyway.
