Artist Depicts What Movies Might Look Like with One Letter Removed

A popular trend on Reddit and other social networks is to envision a movie and write a synopsis of said movie after having removed one letter from the title. For instance, you’ve got “Finding Emo” when removing the “N” from Finding Nemo, or “Obocop” when the “R” is removed from RoboCop. Writer and illustrator Austin Light took this fun meme one step further and drew up a series of illustrations based on movie titles dreamt up by the Reddit community, giving them his own personal summaries as well.

The results are absolutely adorable and great for a laugh, especially given the fact that most of the films lampooned are instantly recognizable cult classics and blockbusters appreciated by movie fans everywhere. We’ve got a smattering of Light’s fantastic work below conveniently gathered in a gallery along with his captions, but you can check out this Imgur gallery for a few more not included in the series here. What’s more, if any of the prints strike your fancy, Light is working to make prints of many of these images available for purchase, with the “Pup Fiction” and “Ron Man” images already up for pre-order.
