Quotes & Typography Collide on Impressive & Stylish Movie Posters

We just featured some cool fan art for the Cornetto Trilogy from director Edgar Wright to highlight the nationwide marathon screenings of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End next week. Now we have some other cool artwork paying tribute to films from the past, but in a very unique and stylish manner. Using the typography and visual style of film title treatments and posters mixed with quotes from the movie themselves, Brazilian designer and illustrator Bily Mariano Da Luz, aka “Butcher Billy,” put together these posters which, "visually represent the movies’ quotes, soundtracks, colors and typography."
Here are some of our favorites from Butcher Billy's unique poster series (see the rest right here):
Thanks to Design Taxi (via Movies.com) for bringing these to our attention. Butcher Billy says these posters are inspired by, "how it is the “sharp mix of media” that immortalized these movies in pop culture—and not any single aspect—these posters are designed around famous quotes that many people may know of, even if they have not watched the films." What's cool is that the movies featured are only obvious to those who recognize the quote or visual style of the poster, and so these are really for hardcore movie fans who soak up every little detail of a film's release. I certainly want the Ghostbusters print on my wall for sure. Cool?

most of these are misquoted, which is really annoying...

might be due to not wanting to get sued. But probably because they're just lazy and didn't pay attention. *edit* no it's because the designer is from Brazil. I think something was lost in translation,
