From outsmarting Predator and avoiding aliens to film colour grids and just how the infamous flux capacitor works, these infographics all provide interesting facts on some of the best loved movies of all time. Check out this brilliant collection of movie infographics to inspire you.
01. Die Hard
This brilliant Die Hard infographic was recently created as part of the marketing campaign for Bruce Willis's latest source of paycheck. The poster breaks down body counts, explosions, plot points and much more - and there's one for each of the five films in the franchise. Having a certain way with words, we particularly like the addition of John McClane's more memorable and humourous lines.
02. Back to the Future
An '80s classic, cult film Back to the Future is a firm favourite for many. With such a big following, there's hundreds of pieces of BTTF fan art online, including this brilliant infographic by the team at sloshpot, which provides great insight on how the legendary flux capacitor makes time travel possible.
We love this simple but beautiful infographic for Christopher Nolan's 2010 blockbuster movie Inception. Let's face it, given how complex the film is, a little bit of simplicity to explain it goes a long way. The illustration was created by New York-based graphic designer Rick Slusher, his elegant summary of the film depicting each character as a colored line; the layers of dreams depicted as concentric circles.
Batman has many amazing gadgets, but one of the things that makes him one of the coolest superheroes is his Batmobile. The vehicle's design has come a long way over the years, continually updated to look sexier, sleeker and incorporate the fanciest of tools. Here, this infographic from Car Insurance charts just how much Batman's trusty Batmobile has changed throughout its history.
05. Star Wars
We couldn't do a list of movie infographics without including a Star Wars one. Such a popular franchise, fans everywhere are constantly creating artwork inspired by George Lucas' story. But this original design, based on Darth Vader's helmet was one of our favourites. Type detailing random facts about the films have been strategically placed to create the clever design.
06. Alien vs Predator
While it's an incredibly small possibility, it's worth taking a look at Steven Taubman's handy infographic about our chances of survival should two of the deadliest extra terrestrial lifeforms take over the world. Basically, humans wouldn't stand a chance but it does provide some useful tips should you encounter Predator or a face hugger. Although, we're not sure how effective a bag over the head would be!
07. 250 best movies of all time
This impressive subway-inspired map of movies was created by designer David Honorat. The map shows the 250 best movies, as voted by IMDb.com users on the 19th June 2009, with the legend detailing genre of film instead of train lines.
