Online Store H-57 has released an innovative set of plot summaries in poster form. The Shortology of Sci-Fi Films series summarizes iconic films from beginning to end using nothing but minimalist symbols.

The poster for Lord of the Rings, for example, consists of a ring with a long arrow pointing to a volcano, basically summarizing the entire franchise as one epic journey to destroy the ring at Mount Doom. E.T: The Extra-Terrestrial is also a single line long, with a set of arrows pointing from a UFO to a phone, a bike, and to another spaceship, aptly summarizing the movie without missing the famous flying bicycle sequence. These unusual and often humorous plot summaries make for great guessing games among friends or at parties, and simplify even the most complex of movie plots.
