How well do movie posters explain what movie you're going to see?
Well, according to the research of our friends at Babble, it's pretty hit-and-miss!
Of course, they only used a test group of one 7-year-old girl, but hey! You have to admit she's pretty good!
Here's what she thought the Oscar Best Picture noms were about, based only on the poster!
Silver Linings Playbook
"This is a movie about building things and it's a happy, good movie. The two people are inventors that invent things that have to do with fish because of all those little scribbles that look like fish. They work together. He's also really, really tall and she likes to wear her hair really, really high. It's kind of a funny movie, too, you can tell by the look in their eyes."
"It's a wild west movie! But I don't know why there is a 'D' in the name. It should be just Jango, just with a 'J' not a 'D'. That's weird. The guy in the middle is a good guy and the other guys are bad guys. The guy on the left always plays bad guys. In the movie they dance a lot and then they kill bad people and the bad people kill the good people because they are mean. Really mean."
"This one is easy. It's about Lincoln and how he became the President. But the movie looks creepy and weird and he has a humongous chin. I wonder if it would still look that way if he shaved his beard off. I don't really want to see if because it looks more like a grown-up movie and would probably be too scary for me."
