See also

Movie posters are Pop Style art. Movie genres are adventure, animation, comedy, documentary, drama, horror, musical, science fiction and western. Except for animation, which requires cartoon characters, all other genres have human actors. It is possible for a movie to be an animated-western-comedy like Rango. It is possible for movies to be animated musicals like Walt Disney’s Fantasia.

In this universe, some notable movies that had Chicago scenes, or in which filming was in Chicago, are Chicago, The Blues Brothers, The Untouchables, Transformers and I, Robot. Chicago is a musical. The Blues Brothers is a comedy. The Untouchables is a crime drama. Transformers and I, Robot are science fiction.movies.

Imagine beings that travel to Chicago in our universe to get movie ideas. After returning to their alternate universe, they assign their six-legged graphic designers to create interesting, movie posters. The following list contains some possible titles.

A Tree Grows in Grant Park

Green River

I, Human

Mark of Beta

Riverview Park

Sassie, Come Home

The Buff Pets Take Chicago

The Jazz Sisters

The Slob

Transcorners

Alternate universe beings could like all the genres that humans like, but they would feature humans in their science fiction movies. (In the case of I, Human, the alternate universe beings could all be robots that watch this movie in organic domes.) Our pets would be strange and interesting to them. Liquid mercury tears may flow from alien eyes when watching A Tree Grows in Grant Park and Sassie, Come Home.

A Tree Grows in Grant Park

In the alternate universe, they have a Chicago and a Grant Park. Most of the vegetation is green. However, the trees are supposed to be metallic. If organic trees grow, they are strange occurrences. (In our universe, this movie poster would say, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.) 

Green RIver

Green RIver

Some alternate universe beings that traveled to Chicago made a documentary about the Chicago River; they considered its green cover spectacular. This design and title is slightly similar to the 1948, action/adventure, Howard Hawks (director), Red River movie.

I, Human

Of course if alternate universe beings are robots, a science fiction movie with a similar title to I, Robot would have robots as their star and starlets. Plot--an advanced human is considered too dangerous to exist.

Mark of Beta

Mark of Beta

This adventure takes place in Zzlag-Chicago in the alternate universe. Their swashbuckling hero, Beta, leaves his ß mark after saving the common folk from exploitation by the Pfzulks. 

Riverview Park

Riverview Park

In our universe in Chicago, Riverview Park no longer exists. However, alternate universe beings traveled into our past to film this documentary. Entertainment in the form of amusement park rides is strange to them. (This layout is similar to the layout for a Gorky Park poster.)

Sassie Come Home

Sassie Come Home

Having a design somewhat like Lassie Come Home, this adventure caused alternate universe beings to weep liquid mercury tears. This movie is also science-fiction because it uses a common (Dogs do not exist in the alternate universe.) German Shepherd as the main character. 

The Jazz Sisters

The Jazz Sisters

Alternate universe beings cannot comprehend Blues music (The Blues Brothers), so a major studio and famous director decided to produce a jazz comedy. (These beings are "hep.") The 1950s Buick would excite alternate universe beings who are themselves metallic, and do not use metallic contraptions to travel.

The Buff Pets Take Chicago

The Buff Pets Take Chicago

Unlike The Muppets Take Manhattan in our universe, the pets in this comedy cannot talk, and are organic. (Animation is incomprehensible to the alternate universe beings.)

The Slob

The Slob

The Slob is in a different genre than The Blob. In the alternate universe, The Slob is a comedy about a sloppy human who becomes involved in hilarious circumstances as he meets various Chicagoans. This character's, favorite food, which he eats sloppily, is Chicago Style hot dogs

Transcorners

Filmed in the alternate universe's, Xfft-Chicago, this is a science-fiction movie about humans who accidentally transport themselves to the alternate universe. This transportation only occurs at the junction of three sets of three streets: Addison, Clark and Waveland; Clybourne, Halsted and North; and Damen, Milwaukee and North. Yes, those are Chicago junctions. (The title is similar to Transformers.)
