Odd One Out Poster Challenge - Round 1 !

Going to try and kick off a new series here on LiE, want to see how you take to it. Here's how it works. I'm going to give you five posters that share a similar style. I want YOU to tell me which one is the odd one out and why. The quality of your choice and reasoning will be judged by yours truly with the winner being announced on THE MONDAY CORNER (aka Guaranteed Linkage). Your answer must be in by tomorrow at 10pm (eastern). So, here we go!

Quick Note: It can have nothing to do with the quality of the movie at hand (because that's cheating and boring).

The top poster is the odd one out because it contains more than one photo of each of the main characters, while each of the other has just a single photo of each person. I'm guessing there's a more profound reason, but that's my guess.

The Woody Allen movie is out of place because it has the title in the middle of the poster as opposed to the others which have their titles in the bottom right spot.

I suppose I should have made it clear, there's no "right" answer. It's all based on how you support your reasoning, either through analysis, creativity, goofiness, and the like.

The fourth poster. While the other three show the actors in natural poses (not staged and probably interacting with one another) the fourth's images ARE posed just for the poster. The fact the photos are tinted different colors also marks it as different.
That's my reasoning and I'm sticking to it!

I would say The Kids Are All Right poster is the odd one out because it uses a lot more critics quotes and less images to sell the film.

I say that it's the third poster. Whereas in the other three, all of the actors's faces are cropped into their boxes, in poster 3, Julianne Moore and Annette Bening are in front of the boxes and are not limited by the lines. It just goes to show - the gods will NOT be Photoshopped!

I say it's Kids/Alright because the other ones use a white background/framing while that one is more colourful.

The last is the odd one out, the first 3 have all white people and the last one all black people ;)

Damn, Castor stole mine lol

The bottom poster is the only one featuring any major black characters. Also, it's the only full-on drama. Because, let's face it, we're all going to laugh at Welcome to the Rileys either way.

1-3 all use full images 4 crops peoples faces in an “artistic” way. #4 is also a shameless rip-off of Piet Mondrian’s style.
