Inception Movie Poster Looks Like Dark Knight Poster

The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan’s next project, Inception, opens next June, and like his last summer blockbuster, he’s opted for a similar poster design. As The Playlist quips, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

The poster for a movie is an important extension of the film itself. Not only do you want to have a sales impact with cool design, it often helps to brand your film with a similar style as your previous work. The Star Wars posters all followed the same basic form, so audiences would immediately know what they were looking at: a Star Wars product (or Indiana Jones, for that matter). This is a bit different, as it appears the filmmaker is branding himself, but its effect is still valid (if a bit lazy).

What are some other iconic posters that have branded a film? Anyone know what Inception is actually about? Trailer.
