Anagrammed Movie Posters are a series of parody advertisements created by anagramming the original title of a film and Photoshoping the poster art to reflect the change in the meaning of the title, similar to the making of One Letter Off Movie Posters.
On April 10th, 2003, Something Awful hosted a contest challenging its visitors to create and share “anagrammed movie posters,” as part of the site’s weekly Photoshop Phriday event. The thread was met with positive feedback from other users and brought in over 55 parody submissions based on anagrammed titles of films released between the late 90s to early 2000s, including Sign (anagrammed as Sing_), The Ring (The Grin_) and Titanic (Cat In It).
On November 16, 2008, photography website Worth1000 held a Photoshop contest for anagrammed movie posters. As stated on the contest’s rules, the idea came from a post on the popular news and culture blog Boing Boing titled “Quantum of Solace is an anagram for 18,258 better titles,” which featured anagrams of the 2008 Bond film. A poster for one of Boing Boing’s anagrams was submitted to the contest.
On November 20th, Buzzfeed reported on the contest and featured the anagrammed Quantum of Solace poster.
Anagrammed Video Games
Something Awful started threads calling for video game anagrams on December 15th, 2006, and November 9, 2007. Participants submitted anagrammed video game titles on start screens; examples included Final Fantasy and Super Mario Brothers.
