    [–] Why do posters get so many upvotes on this sub? BunyipPouch 4 points ago in movies

    As someone who posts a lot of posters on this sub, including the one you linked, I think it's because posters are usually the first thing to come out in terms of advertising for a movie.

    Before trailers, images, interviews, etc, studios will put out a poster to build hype. It introduces people to a movie they might not have even known was happening. It's easy and quick, no need to watch a 3 minute trailer. They have a broader/accessible appeal than most other marketing, I guess.

    I personally like to find posters for more obscure movies that I didn't even know were happening. The discussion tends to be better also than let's say 'Kong Skull Island Poster #15'.

    There's exceptions obviously, like when a MCU/DC/Star Wars/etc poster is released. That's just a race for whoever posts it first and it'll get upvoted no matter what, even if there's already been 40 trailers for that movie.

    [–] What was the best film you watched this week? (16/10/2017 - 22/10/2017) BunyipPouch 25 points ago in movies

    Only The Brave.

    The final few scenes were some of the most heartbreaking I've seen this year. Every character felt 100% real and was well-acted. Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, and Josh Brolin were great. Even Taylor Kitsch was impressive.

    Would highly recommenced to anyone, even people that aren't fond of recent-disaster biopics (Deepwater Horizon, Patriot's Day, etc)

    Solid 8/10
