Poster-Crop Quiz: Can You Guess These Movies Adapted from Unlikely Source Material?

Poster-Crop Quiz: Can You Guess These Movies Adapted from Unlikely Source Material?

Mar 28, 2013

Prepare to think outside the box, boys and girls, because it's time for another Poster-Crop Quiz. This time around, we're going to ask you to consider the importance of adaptation. This week sees the release of G.I. Joe: Retaliation starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Bruce Willis. This is of course the sequel to the big-screen adaptation of the '80s cartoon/Hasbro toy line. G.I. Joe is among the weirder properties ever adapted for the big screen, but is it the absolute weirdest?

Board games, kids books, video games etc. If Hollywood has taught us anything over the last several years, it's that any property, no matter how unusual, can be a potential cinematic goldmine. See if you can identify these posters for movies adapted from unlikely sources. Leave your guesses in the comment section. The first person to correctly identify all 10 will get a shout out in next week's quiz. 

Caption: As a nod to the founder of the quiz, we're going to kick things off with the poster for Stephen Sommer's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Look at all those action figures brought to life!

Last week's answers: Air Force One, The Hurt Locker, Full Metal Jacket, Dead Man Walking, One Eight Seven, MASH, Broken Arrow, Black Hawk Down, Green Zone, Zero Dark Thirty. Congrats to Daniel Howart for correctly identifying all 10.
