Anagrammed Movie Posters is a meme that involves anagramming and photoshopping skills. Basically, after a shooper creates an anagram of their desired movie’s title, they get on their way to alter said movie’s poster in such a way that it states their new anagrammed title using the original title’s font. They also usually have something related to the new title shooped into the poster to reflect the anagram better.
The meme first saw the light of day on the popular memetic hub, Something Awful, on April 10, 2003 as another one of the site’s photoshop contests for their weekly Photoshop Phriday.
On November 16, 2008, Worth1000, an image manipulation and contest website, held a photoshop contest with the same concept of anagramming movie posters though they did not get the idea from Something Awful. As stated on the contest’s rules, the idea came from a suggestion made on the popular news and culture blog Boing Boing, 3 days before the contest came to an end.
Boing Boing buddy Ape Lad points out that simple anagrams yield 18,258 better possible titles for the new Bond movie Quantum of Solace (which I can’t wait to see). Anagrams yield better plot points, too. Here are my favorites. A photoshopping contest for these movie posters would be fun:
