Action Film Alphabet

It's that time again! We've already featured some artwork highlighting the most iconic comedy, horror, sci-fi and superhero films with minimalist illustrations for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet, not to mention the same treatment for every decade all the way back to the 1960's and most recently an alphabet for James Bond films. Now artist Stephen Wildish has returned with the Action Film Alphabet, following the success of A Good Day to Die Hard (read our negative and more positive reviews) at the box office over the weekend. There's Face/Off, Rush Hour, Point Break and plenty more action flicks. And we've also included his older War Film Alphabet and Adaptation Film Alphabet. Can you name all of the films?

Here are Stephen Wildish's Action, War and Adaptation Film Alphabets from the artist's Tumblr page:

This came right from Stephen Wildish's Tumblr, and he also posted the answer key for all alphabets here. We've posted quite a few of these alphabet charts over the last year, we hope you've enjoyed decoding them!

      I think T is Top Gun, not Tropic Thunder.

        Wrong poster, but also, it's Thin Red Line.
        • Zen
          Furthermore, K is Kickboxer, not Kiss of the Dragon
      • T is True Grit. With Jeff Bridges.
        • Phillip Gockel
          Still the wrong poster, but it's cool.
    • pickle t1ts
