…or so sayeth the poster for Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic Alien. That line above is perhaps one of the most famous tags in the history of American cinema, which alongside “Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water!” and “Be afraid. Be very afraid” (Jaws 2 and The Fly) helped to highlight the value of a tagline when it comes to selling a film. The Don Drapers of the movie world would spends weeks trying to find that one little piece of wordplay that captured the essence of their film, knowing that it could make or break them!
So for our quiz this week, we’re going deep into the world of poster taglines! We want you to tell us the names of the following films just from their taglines. To aid you in this, we’ve presented them in ways that you might find helpful! And as a nice incentive, you can send your submissions to email@example.com and stand a chance to win £100 of blinkbox credit. 5 runner-ups will also win £10 credit.
We know that you can probably just type the taglines into Google and be done with the whole thing, but where’s the fun in that? Plus you never know: we might have some PRISM software that can tell us if you’ve been cheating…
Anyway, here we go….
Name the films
