The original poster doesn't look like the description above. It's a drawing of humans in a big cage with an image of Dr. Zaius on an inset. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063442/

Alright but there are still people who haven't seen the film. There is a tendency nowadays to casually reveal plot twists of older movies becuase they're so famous - but there'll always be new generations. They should be able to have a 'virginal' movie experience. I guess Psycho would've been a lot more thrilling for me hadn't the world been full of spoilers about this one damn scene.

No, it's 第六感, which means "Sixth Sense." lol I wish it were that much of a spoiler, though! That would be hilarious.

Got all but the last two. Have definitely seen the MASH poster but couldn't remember which movie it was for. Memento was a great film but I don't think I ever saw the poster for it. Didn't catch that one until it came out on DVD.

Wasn't the flying saucer over the White House and NOT the Empire State Building? I thought of Independence Day, but did not try it, because I was sure it was incorrect.

That's how I remember it too! But eyewitness accounts are notoriously inaccurate. Instead of relying on my faulty memory, I used the internet. (Which, as we all know, is never wrong).

There was a poster for both. Here's the empire state one: https://www.movieposter.com/poster/A70-13387/Independence_Day.html. And you can buy it for only $60!

Awesome quiz! I figured I'd be lucky to get 2 or 3 from the title, not the kind of thing that usually sticks in my head... or so I thought. I got 15, and had a lot of fun! Thanks.

Great quiz! Doesn't seem like movie posters have the same cache as they once did, but definitely some memorable ones when they are done right! Could do a series on these.

Shouldn't "id4" be accepted for independence day? Google still gives the movie as a first answer to "id4". It was marketed under that abbreviation.

The B2TF poster is quite hilarious really. Does Marty's watch somehow tell him the year that he has travelled to? And he's shocked to see this, rather than the actual 1950's around him? Or is he just amazed that it's 1:45pm?

Obviously not the most memorable film. Most people will probably remember the TV series, but not all of them know that it was preceded by a feature movie. Kinda similar to "The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams".
