Like many people, I lurk around Reddit during my downtime, and I find some pretty interesting stuff. Sometimes that stuff relates to movies and television, so I feel obligated to share it with our readers. After the break, check out what’s been making the rounds on Reddit recently.

Our first entry is over a week old, but I had to include it. It’s the entire Star Wars saga mapped out, and as you might expect, it’s a bit daunting. Click on the image below to see it in full size. [Source]

Since we have a map of the most famous sci-fi trilogy above, what about the next biggest? The long journey taken in The Lord of the Rings series has been mapped out in GIF form, as you can see below. [Source]

The most popular name in posters right now, Olly Moss, has created a massive poster for the 85th Annual Academy Awards, which includes 85 Oscar statues that reference the movie that won Best Picture for that year. Check it out below. [Source]

Last, but not least, a Redditor found some clever outdoor marketing for A Good Day to Die Hard in Norway, as seen below. [Source]
