Out-of-Context Posters #22: Splash (1984)

Movie posters often use their most iconic scene as their focus. Think Tom Cruise hanging off a building for the Mission Impossible 4 poster. But what would happen if instead those posters would feature something completely out-of-context?

Here’s a blast from the past: Disney‘s first Touchstone Pictures release, Splash starring Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah, John Candy, and Eugene Levy. A romantic movie about a little mermaid falling in love with a human and the (literal) fish out of water story of her exploring mankind for the first time – how was this not released under the Disney label? Perhaps this week’s Out-of-Context Poster might shed some light on that answer.
