Movie Taglines Trivia: Vol. 2

It's Tagline Trivia Time!

Almost every time a movie is released in theaters, part of the marketing campaign for the film is a tagline (or slogan). Movie taglines are typically seen on the movie poster, or during commercials, previews (trailers) and other advertisements for the film.

Usually a movie tagline is fairly short and no longer than five or six words, or a sentence or two. A good movie tagline acts as a short descriptor of the plot or theme of the film with a play on words or some sort of humor involved.

Movie taglines range from funny, to corny, to catchy to provocative. Sometimes they are completely bizarre with almost no relation or relativity to the film and sometimes they are just really, really awful (click here for the 15 worst movie taglines from the Huffington Post).

Whereas, a good tagline, like the Alien tagline (In space no one can hear you scream) can become a part of the pop culture lexicon. There's really no telling.

So, Mr. (or Mrs.) Movie Buff, how well do you think you know your movie taglines?

Below is a list of 50 taglines from some of the more popular films over the last 30 to 40 years. Some are easy. Some are hard. Keep score and see if you are a movie buff, or maybe just a buffoon? Good luck!

Lights. Camera. Tagline Trivia!
