What are taglines?
- A tagline is a short description or comment on a movie that is
displayed on movie posters (or direct to video covers, etc.) to capture
the essence of the movie, and ultimately make you watch the movie.
- Please do not submit advertising slogans, only the taglines that appear
on original movie posters and direct to video covers.
- We only want the tagline from the movie poster, or the video cover
if it went straight to video.
- Taglines from re-releases should be noted as such. For example, for Alien (1979):
The scariest movie ever made... just got scarier. (UK 2003 re-release)
For TV series, taglines from posters (e.g., in transit shelters) or from video releases are acceptable.
For non-English titles, we accept taglines in the original language if they are accompanied by a translation. The form for a translated tag is:
Original Tagline (Translation)
Unless certain letters/words were capitalized in the original tagline for effect, then standard capitalization should be used. IMDb’s title capitalization rules should not be applied to taglines.
