Has a cover or poster ever convinced you to watch a movie or turned an interesting title into a must-see?

And, the follow-up question: How was the movie?

Here are a few that come to mind for me, and most of the films actually ended up being good.
Of these, Anatomy of a Murder and Anthropoid were probably the best:

I think movie posters/covers can be the sole responsibility of you wanting to watch a movie or not.

For example, this poster art makes me think the movie is going to be cheap and not well thought out, just like the poster

(IMG:https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/2/25/I)

But a poster like this one for Inception grabs my attention

(IMG:https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61Ug+K8o5FL.jpg)

However, one of my favourite posters is for Fight Club

(IMG:https://n11scdn.akamaized.net/a1/450/ev-yasam/posterler/dovus-kulubu-fight-club-film-posterleri__0251911404029527.jpg)

Also, not a poster but the cover from Criterion for Le Samourai

(IMG:https://i.pinimg.com/originals/66/cf/6c/66cf6ce82e3d8295ac5d202303cab871.jpg)

And I really liked them all.

There were more but I didn't want to start a trend..(IMG:http://i.imgur.com/1Kh2i75.gif)

A great poster doesn't equal a great movie. There's no correlation whatsoever. There are great movies that have horrible posters and vice versa and vice vice and versa versa.

The only ones I would watch because of a good poster are pornographic films

I'm with invisigoth on Swimming Pool and Samourai on Le Samouraï -- I didn't know much about either one going in but was intrigued enough by their posters to try each (after seeing their favorable IMDB ratings).

Here are a few more that came to mind, all of which did a pretty nice job of living up to their posters:

Here are some illustrated comedy posters that came to mind.
I don't know if any of them would work now photo-based -- they would probably look too scary or serious or sexualized, rather than just silly:

(Alas, none of the movies ended up becoming a new favorite.)
