Sure, we know Hollywood loved to recycle ideas… but who knew they were also recycling expressions!

Some very resourceful folks at Cracked.com noticed a pattern in the movie posters from some of your favorite actors… and found that a lot of the time – they seem to bear a startling resemblance to the movie before that, and before that…

Take Eddie Murphy for example…Raised eyebrow anyone?

Then there’s Jackie Chan, who must have at least one  fist much much bigger than his face at all times.

Who thought to rifle through years of movie posters to see a pattern? Brilliant! If you go to their webpage, you’ll see that Eddie and Jackie aren’t the only victims of predictable posing. Take a look!
