The Long and Assy History of Between-the-Legs Movie Posters

Can someone explain to me the appeal — besides, perhaps, having an airbrushed ass in your face — of the movie poster world’s complete obsession between-the-legs shots? What is provocative about this set up? It’s not a particularly sexy photo; in fact, often as not, in two dimensions it looks like the airbrushed ass is about to take a dump on the other actors. That’s not cool.

The latest? The Sitter, the unofficial R-Rated Adventures in Babysitting remake starring Jonah Hill. Man, that guy. Props for losing the weight, and for a masterful turn in this weekend’s Moneyball (I know, I could hardly believe it myself). But you’re not going to build acting cred by looking like Jared from Subway and making this movie and 21 Jump Street. Anyway, here’s that The Sitter poster in full, in case you wanted to see Jonah Hill’s fat head looking as though it’s about to be crushed by cartoon thighs.


And here are the highlights in the long history of between-the-legs movie posters.
