This article is about movie taglines. These are the short texts you’ll find on movie posters, you know the ones that will get stuck in your memory. Usually when I read a tagline, for some reason I hear the voice of Don Lafontaine (the king of movie trailer voice overs). They can be funny, dramatic, weird or sometimes just very cool! So in this article we will bring homage to the movie tagline. Maybe we can even do a little Quiz? I’ll put down some of my favorite taglines in random order and maybe you can try to guess the movie…Let’s go!
