Creating a great movie poster requires quite some skill and balance. You don’t want to give away too much about the story of the movie, but you do want to raise the curiosity levels in the minds of the audience. Most movie posters play into the trap of being too revealing with the plot, and some of them rely too much on the shock value to gain traction. When film makers venture too much into the ploy of using shock value, that is when the posters usually tend to get banned.
