The Poster for ‘Shot Caller’ Looks Awfully Familiar

Hey, you know that movie Shot Caller? Come on, Shot Caller! It’s got Game of Thrones‘ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Daredevil’s Jon Bernthal in it? It releases next Friday, August 18? Not ringing any bells? Well, here’s a poster to jog your memory.

Wait a minute. This can’t be right. That poster looks somehow …familiar. Hang on just one second.

Hmm. Computer, enhance.

Eagle-eyed Birth.Movies.Death editor Scott Wampler was the first to notice all this. Yes, a little sleuthing sure makes it look like these two movies star the same body and outfit, with two different heads Photoshopped in. The muscles look like they’ve been shrunk just a hair on Coster-Waldau’s arms (his name is misspelled in the Shot Caller poster by the way. When it rains, it pours), and Dwayne Johnson seems to be wearing a watch but, otherwise, either this shirt magically wrinkles in the exact same way for everyone or Ric Roman Waugh, who directed both of these movies, liked the shot so much he decided to use it twice.
