I've got 95 of them. Admittedly, some I figured out by process of elimination based on the year. I'm guessing that the movie from 1912 is Paramount's first release and the ones I can't get from 2009 and 2011 must be Paranormal Activity and Hugo but I haven't a clue how the pictures illustrate those movies. The two from 2008 and 2005 are total headscracthers to me. I'll spoilerize my answers so others can play at home.

I'm surprised I missed Hustle & Flow and glad I didn't get Bieber. :)
