Stop me if you’ve seen this before: For the teen thriller GOSSIP, arrange a group of hot young stars faces in a “V” shaped formation, against a black background.
This is sometimes referred to as a “SCREAM head lineup” or “Miramax lineup”, in reference to the group cast shot layout in film posters for the Miramax SCREAM films.
Cynicism aside, there are reasons this layout is common. With a large group, it is difficult to manage the space and give everyone equal likeness (a contractual requirement that actors are given equal size) — this lineup is one solution to this challenge.
For this international poster, I included these factors, along with a few other touches, including a pair of big luscious lips, that work with the film’s title and copy line that I wrote:
SOME PEOPLE ARE DYING TO HEAR IT.
