Poster-Crop Quiz: Can You Crack These Code Name Movies?

Poster-Crop Quiz: Can You Crack These Code Name Movies?

Mar 21, 2013

It's that time again, intrepid readers. The Poster-Crop Quiz is back! This week, you're going to want to grab your code books, because we've add an extra layer of intrigue to the quiz. In theaters this week is Antoine Fuqua's Olympus Has Fallen. The title is a code for an assault on the White House, which is the central storyline of the movie, and it's up to one Secret Service agent to save the day.

That got us thinking about other films that derive their names from various military and police codes and shorthand. Whether or not these codes/terms are actually used by authorities in the real world, they do make for great titles. Take a look at the cropped images below and see if you can identify the 10 posters from which they are taken. The fist person to name all ten in the comment section will receive a shout out in next week's quiz.

To kick things off, here is the theatrical poster for Samuel Fuller's Big Red One. The title is a reference to the code term for The First Infantry Division of the United States Army. It is not, as it turns out, how the crew of a Ron Howard film refers to their director.

Last quiz answers:
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
21 Jump Street
The Lookout
Observe and Report
The Cabin in the Woods
The Hurt Locker

Congrats to Daniel Howat.
