Do You Know These Famous Movie Taglines?
A tale of murder, lust, greed, revenge, and seafood is the perfect way to describe the hilarious film, A Fish Called Wanda. But that’s the purpose of a movie tagline. It is a work of art that will not only keep the audience interested but can also be used to create a buzz that keeps rising until its release.
The movie tagline, if good enough, can actually be better than the film itself. “Escape or Die Frying” from Chicken Run, or maybe you recall the tagline from Jaws 4, “This time it’s personal.”
Now it’s your chance to see what you really know about movie taglines.
Movie taglines are short, simple phrases that not only summarize a film but can entice an audience to watch it. The best movie taglines are memorable, some movie goers may consider them a work of art. They can be a funny pun or they can hint at what we are going to experience with a movie.
The movie tagline, if done well, can become a marketing tool similar to the way products use a slogan. If you hear someone say "Just Do It," you can't help but think about Nike. That is the goal of a movie tagline, and even a bad film can become a classic with just a simple sentence.
