Movie Title Numerology: The Charticle

The more effective movie posters have a way of sticking with you long after you’ve see them. In fact, their iconic designs can be so distinctive that just one poster element – a color, a font, a texture – can make it instantly recognizable with just a passing glance.

With that in mind, we’ve created “Movie Title Numerology,” which strips movie posters featuring films with numbers in their title down to nothing but their signature digits. Amazingly, even with so little to go on, they’re still so effortlessly identifiable.

We’ll throw you a freebie to get you started: 14 is the ’50s noir flick “14 Hours.” (Honestly, you were never gonna get that one. We’re not monsters.) We assure you that all of the other movies featured aren’t nearly as obscure, so give the graphic a look and see just how many you can spot. (Then check the answer key below to see how close you got.) Graphic by Nick DeSantis
