Striking Similarity: Strolling Solo

Ok, go with me on this one. This is a trend I noticed in movie posters, which is basically this - tough, tortured-looking guys walking alone with weapons. I guess this is how the filmmakers are trying to tell us who the hero is of the movie. But notice it's always a 'dark' hero who has some serious issues.




Hit the jump for FOUR more examples...

Very cool! But one small glitch, Willy isn't carrying a weapon, unless you consider his cyborg arm a weapon in itself...hmmm

Jonathan - I noticed he didn't have a weapon, but decided I didn't care, and he still fit in with the group..haha! doesn't he have a gun throughout the movie though?
