I've been noticing a trend of movie posters having the characters lined up, facing ahead, with a side view. I know there's gotta be lots, but I can only think of three. Please suggest!

The links doesn’t seem to work. You can look at the movie poster from Cop Land and Back to the Future 3

Thanks.  Added Irishman, Cop Land, BTTF 3, Remains of the Day, and may add more.  Slience was good, but by the time the image got on there and the 'Vote' button would be there, their faces wouldn't even be visible.  :)

I feel like some of the additions don't really match your description, such as Cop Land and Maleficent.

Character lineups are fairly common in older posters (Reservoir Dogs, Ocean's Eleven, The Usual Suspects...), so I think you should focus on the profile style that you started with.

Great idea for a poll! The poster for 'The Men Who Stare at Goats' if pretty funny, lol. My favorite, though, is the one for 'Ocean's Eight.'

I feel each contributor should be mentioned in the poll, but, to be honest, I'm not a fan of the most common way of doing that, i.e. mentioning a contributor's name under each entry. It makes the list a bit too crowded, especially if a contributor's name is mentioned several times in a row.

The way I think it works the best is, if all the contributors are listed in the poll's intro.
For example:

---
Poll: Shoulder to Shoulder, Side by Side
A poll by NarniaIsAwesome.

There has been a growing trend in movie posters: showing the main characters, lined up, facing forward, from a side view. It's no wonder it's being used more and more for movie promotions - it really works. It provides a good look at the cast as well as giving it a powerful, 'superhero' feel. Which of these posters featuring side to side posing is your favorite (not movie, mind you, but poster)? Discuss here!

Thanks to Nathan Torresmihailo.razvigorEd Jones (XLIX) and Hoekkie for additional suggestions.
