Amending movie titles with humorous results is common practice on Twitter, but the latest trend takes films with one letter missing to the next level with suitably ‘shopped promo material.

The #FilmsWithOneLetterMissing hashtag is a fun bit of wordplay in and of itself: take a popular film and remove one letter from the title to create a new one that brings a whole new meaning.

For example, Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction becomes ‘Pup Fiction’, Ben Stiller comedy vehicle Dodgeball becomes ‘Dogeball’, blockbuster wizard series Harry Potter becomes ‘Harry Otter’, and so on and so forth.

What’s even better than imagining the plot lines of these title typos is when a picture paints a thousand words of screenplay.

 

The added fun comes when some people handy with Photoshop (or Microsoft Paint, or whatever image-editing tools they have to hand) take these film titles and create movie posters that reflect the edited versions, and Twitter is aflutter with examples right now.

 

 

 

 

 

Like many online trends, this craze actually originated on a Reddit thread, later spilling over into Twitter feeds.

The all-out winner in the game is artist Austin Light, who has been following the Reddit contributions and spent a month creating illustrations capturing the essence of a number of these misspelled movies.
