A falling parachute has high drag and will fall slower than something with low drag. A person in the splayed position increases their drag to a high degree, causing them to fall slowly. Thus, when a person moves into a streamlined, aerodynamic shape, they're able to accelerate at a greater rate due to decrease air resistance and improved air flow. This allows people to catch up to people and objects with high drag. In the case of Star Trek, you can see Sulu has splayed, increasing his drag, while Kirk has streamlined himself into a diving position.
Very hard to catch up to something falling and very easy to miss? Yes. Impossible? Not at all.

In 95% of these examples, the character on the poster wearing sunglasses prominently wears sunglasses in the movie. If you want to take a badass image of someone from the movie, of course you take them wearing sunglasses. The Matrix, Bad Boys, and The Kingdom all have main characters (of all races) wearing sunglasses all the time. I mean, after seeing The Matrix who didn't go out and buy some awesome sunglasses? I blew like $180 on a pair and I was still in High School. And in the Matrix flicks Morepheus barely handles guns in them. For the most part, his memorable scenes are jumping out of the skyscraper and then fighting an agent hand-to-hand on a truck, he's badass, but not a gunfighter.
Though I will say, sunglasses in Westerns (a la Wild Wild West up there and also in Wyatt Earp, just look bad across the board)
Cool collection of posters and an interesting article, but I feel that you're reaching for something that doesn't exist. Sunglasses are cool. Parents and the MPAA don't like anyone, especially good guys, pointing guns directly at the viewer anymore.

But, the world owes KotCS a huge deal of gratitude because it made me so mad that I came up with "10 Things I Hated, 5 I Didn't" on the spot.

For the record, I like sharks more than dolphins. Dolphins are assholes (see Penn & Teller's Bullshit). But I don't support the wanton killing of dolphins. Even I'm not that heartless. Or cold. Or Dr. Evil.

But yeah, the fisherman (Jimmy) is a very likely candidate.
