i love when people analyze design beyond "it's cool" or "it sucks". i recently came across this article on speak up and totally love this breakdown of movie posters.

essentially, they looked at top ranking movie posters by rating (nc-17, pg, pg-13, etc.) and determined which colors are predominately used. surprisingly, white as a background virtually didn't exist. yet, i recall a particular graphic design teacher of mine attempting to beat into me that 'white space' was essential in graphic design. maybe he didn't actually mean white space as in the color but in open space...finally it's making sense (he he, j/k corwin...!).
