Jack Nicholson Baring His Teeth, and Other Actors Who Do the Same Thing on Every Movie Poster

What has Steve Martin looking perpetually alarmed? Why is Jennifer Aniston always so unhappy with her male costars? And what could Johnny Depp be hiding under all those hats? Inspired by these posts from Cracked, YouTube user Demon Ape has put together a video showcasing actors who do the same thing on every movie poster, be it baring their teeth, flexing their muscles, or hiding half of their face.

Not every movie poster featured here is a perfect example of the trend it purports to represent—some of Steve Martin’s expressions look more chagrined than shocked—but it’s pretty illuminating to see so many similar posters side by side. You’ll never look at Eddie Murphy’s eyebrows the same way again.
