Movie title puns are rarely funny on their own, but turn those same puns into photoshopped posters and you’re halfway to a viral hit.
Just ask Empire Online, whose users have mashed up this year’s Oscar nominees with some favorite films of yore to produce faux-posters that are funny (“Trueman Grit”), nostalgic (“Fight of the Navigator”) and surreal (“No True Greet No Surrender”).
Our favorite poster is “Arm of Darkness,” a shop of the original “Army of Darkness” poster with Bruce Campbell’s head replaced by James Franco’s noggin — a wink at “127 Hours” graphic arm removal conclusion.
The “Arm of Darkness” tagline: “How can you destroy an arm that’s already dead?”
