Tottenham have released some fantastic Oscars-inspired film posters ahead of the 92nd Academy Awards.
The North London club flooded their social media with some hilarious mock-ups of famous Hollywood film posters with a twist.
The names of the renowned blockbusters have been altered to include some of Spurs’ most recognisable stars.
Superstar actors have had also had their faces replaced by shots of some of Tottenham’s current squad on the posters.
Tottenham have been enjoying the Premier League’s new winter break ahead of their clash with Aston Villa next Sunday and the players will all have had a chuckle at the club’s banter.

The Spurs social media team had a field day with a number of cracking film-based puns ahead of the 2020 Oscars ceremony taking place in Los Angeles tonight.
One example included the 2000 film Gone in 60 Seconds starring Nicolas Cage which became “Son in 60 Seconds” in a nod to Spurs’ South Korean star Son Heung-min.
While the Adam Sandler classic Happy Gilmore was changed to “Happy Gilmoura” in honour of Brazilian winger Lucas Moura.
Moura would have felt like a film star last season when he played the starring role in Spurs’ dramatic Champions League comeback.
The former PSG man was Spurs’ superhero as he scored a hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final second leg against Ajax.
Moura’s 95th minute winner sealed Tottenham’s place in the final after an improbable comeback from 3-0 down on aggregate at half-time.
And it is not just Moura’s heroics on the pitch that make him fit to be a movie star as his rags to riches life story could easily be mistaken for a film script.

The 27-year-old rose from poverty in Brazil to play for boyhood side Sao Paulo before excelling in Europe.
England star Eric Dier is renowned for his no-nonsense tackling and he replaces legendary hardman Bruce Willis as Die Hard 4.0 becomes “Dier Hard 4.0” in another poster.
Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen did not look great when he was hauled off against Southampton but perhaps his new role as “Super Jan” will raise his spirits.
On a day where Storm Ciara caused a number of matches to be cancelled, Tottenham’s funny film posters will have helped put a smile back on the face of some football supporters.
