By now, Hollywood has discovered that superhero movies equal reliable summertime bank. You get the popcorn blockbuster crowd. You get the hardcore multiple viewers ( who cares if most of them are only there to pinpoint the ways the movie deviates from accepted comics continuity?). You get the opportunity for endless sequels and DVD special editions. The only way it could be any better is if the movies themselves were cheaper to make. But hey, the studios have decades of old films just sitting there, or at best making a few dollars a year in cable royalties. Just slap a few CGI costumes on those characters and you've got yourself a blockbuster. Your challenge this week:

Show us a movie poster for a classic (non-superhero) film transformed into a superhero movie.

Post your entry here by 11:59 AM (central) on Monday, July 13, 2009. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 550px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.

Arg, the bar is already being raised beyond my abilities. And Paint.NET just is not cutting it.

Been awhile since I've done one of these contests... do people still bother putting in silly comments early on to use as a placeholder for later images?

A note on hosting, I personally use imageftw.com, which is simple and has no limits on file size or content.

This made sense in my head at least. My brother and I did actually think that "Rain man" was a superhero movie when we were younger.

My only rule with image hosting is: "photobucket sucks".

just an FYI, if your font doesn't match exactly, replace everything there that's in that font with your replacement font. Then it doesn't look so much like it doesn't match. and use a sharpen filter on the text.
