Unusual magazine covers

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

Okay, I did take some time to find more covers.

Four movies:

Three movies:

Two movies (both Willem Dafoe):

One future movie:

These people are also on Time covers and have at least one movie:
Keanu Reeves
Carrie-Anne Moss
Matthew McConaughey
Dustin Hoffman
And I am sure I have missed many others...

I did need the hint.

I should wrap this up. jbenz is correct: Ben Stiller's remake of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty uses a fake Life Magazine cover of Ben Stiller's character taken by Sean Penn's character.

Another trivial matter: I was rewatching the 2016 film The Nice Guys on premium cable this week and noticed that one of Andie MacDowell's daughters from their Town & Country cover (Margaret, the one under "October 2012") was the femme fatale in the trouble-seems-to-follow-her sense. Val Kilmer's son played the projectionist.

It would probably take a few hours to find all the Time Magazine covers that qualify, so instead I will include this one cover and ask a question.

I am thinking of a different magazine that would count twice (two movie titles) if they ever let Glenn Close on the cover.

They never have, but they've put her co-star on there twice!

Which magazine?

For posterity: the two Glenn Close movies were Cookie's Fortune and Reversal of Fortune.
