Welcome back to This Week In Posters, the only Internet post combining all of the past week’s movie posters. The Gods of WordPress have decreed reverse alphabetical order this week, and thus, we start with The Witch, which I saw almost a year ago. I don’t remember there being an evil rabbit in it (just an evil goat), but I still love the poster format. Hey, someone should redo this with Nancy Grace. Wait, no, I can do that:
There we go.
Nothing says “torn from the headlines” like putting the poster subjects in front of a backdrop of actual headlines. Luckily, that picture of Dee Snider is unforgettable (someone make me stop seeing it every time I close my eyes!), so much that the rest of the poster almost doesn’t matter.
And that font. All the coolest bands had their own font. Aw, man, remember hot pink?
What the hell is she doing with her neck? And why is he sitting like that? He looks like he’s drunk, or in the midst of some gravitational anomaly and has to hold onto the bench to keep from flying off into space. Maybe this about two people with inner ear problems finding love? That’s so sweet.
Here we see Trapped going with simple imagery. I like it, it kind of makes the poster a guessing game. Not peeking at IMDb, my guess is that it’s about the government trying to regulate my vagina.
U.S. abortion clinics are fighting to survive. Since 2010, hundreds of bills have been enacted targeting abortion rights on a statewide level. Trapped follows the clinic workers, women, and lawyers on the front lines of the battle to keep abortion safe and legal for the millions of poor and uninsured women caught in a political quagmire.

Looks I just won a buck. From myself! BOOSH.
