We all know that major movie studios pay billions of dollars every year on marketing: editing trailers, designing posters, booking chat shows, buying ad space, and a whole lot more. There are many different ways to sell a movie, and none of them are cheap.
But sometimes, all it takes is a sentence.
If you can come up with the right tagline, not only are you getting butts on seats, but you are cementing your film as a piece of pop culture history. Make something quotable, and your movie will be living rent-free in people's brains for years to come.
We've hand-picked fifteen of our favourite taglines from throughout movie history, and all you have to do is tell us what movie each one is from. Post your scores in the comments, challenge your friends, and prove that you know your slogans from your catchphrases!
