A hilarious blog post pointing out the dozens of times marketing has used these backside shots of their stars in posters and ads. Ironically, it's had an opposite effect on me and now I want to take a cliché photo for fun! (via)

- re: "awesomely reused poster pose". I actually think that one is more demeaning to women than the back shot. At least a woman can look strong and confident while showing off her backside. But to have the woman groveling at the male hero's feet? Really?
The difference is that the men's backsides are generally covered. I suppose you could say that it's still a bit of fanservice to women by showing off the man's broad shoulders, but it's a bit of a stretch.
That said, I don't mind the "looking over my shoulder while showing you my ass" shot, though it is overused. This one is the shot I can't stand... http://www.empireonline.com/features/brief-history-open-legs-postersApr 24, 2012
