About

Then and Now refers to a series of exploitable images that feature a young boy pulling an older woman and pointing at a movie poster in the past juxtaposed against a present day illustration of an adult male pulling an adult woman's arm while pointing at a remake, reboot or sequel of the movie in the adjacent image. Online, people have changed the movie posters depending on what movie is coming out soon.

Origin

On June 16th, 2015, DeviantArt [1] user Mickking posted a two-panel webcomic of young boy pulling a woman and crying while pointing at a Jurassic Park movie poster in 1993. The adjacent panel shows the same boy and woman in the same position and pointing at a Jurassic World poster in 2015.
