Any resemblance of the poster above with the poster below is not a mere coincidence.
Hot Fuzz comes from the creators of Shaun of the Dead. While that film played homage/parodied the zombie movie genre, this one does the same to the action film genre. And if the poster is any indication, they did a great job.
The influences for the poster are clear, and it does a good job of looking sillier than what you would expect from an actual action film. But at the same time it manages to maintain just enough seriousness not to become an out and out parody. It’s obvious that there is some love for the source material in here.
Love the poster, really looking forward to the movie.
