Your friend's favourite film is

Schindler's List

The posters - pretty sure of these

Zombieland - credit to Poolsharker
Ocean's 11
The Silence Of The Lambs
Pan's Labyrinth (AKA El laberinto del fauno)
The Matrix

Because

"Oh don't worry there's only one!" is a hint to it being
The Matrix

...but the question says, "It's hidden in this five minimalist posters", so is it hidden in the poster for The Matrix?

The Matrix poster is only numbers, and mostly zeros, could this be where the actual film title is hidden?
as letters of the alphabet we'd have:

 . . . . . E . . .
 . . . B . . . . .
 . . . . . B . . .
 . E . . . . . . .
 . . . . . . . J .
 . J . . . . . . .
 . . . .   . . B .
 . . . C   . . . .
 . . . .   .   H .
   . . F   .   . .
   . . .   .   M 
   G   .   .   . 
   E   .   .   . 
   .   G   .   . 
   .   .   A   . 
...but I don't see much there.

What about if we replacae the positive numbers with the characters from those positions in the film titles we have so far? There are four other films and four columns with such numbers, so a reasonable guess it to use one film per column, in order. Well, what would you know, if we use ["ZOMBIELAND", "OCEAN'S ELEVEN",'THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS', "EL LABERINTO DEL FAUNO"] - we get an answer, almost...
 . . . . . S . . .                  S
 . . . C . . . . .              C
 . . . . . H . . .                  H
 . I . . . . . . .           I
 . . . . . . . N .                     N
 . D . . . . . . .           D
 . . . .   . . L .                       L
 . . . E   . . . .               E
 . . . .   .   R .                       R
   . . '   .   . .               '
   . . .   .  (S)                        S
   L   .   .   .             L
   I   .   .   .             I
   .   S   .   .                 S
   .   .   T   .                     T
It appears the 13 from the fourth column makes a space but I've replaced it with an S, maybe it's El Laberintos Del Fauno, but not according to imdb... still it must be correct - SCHINDLER'(S)LIST

  • $\begingroup$ you are close... imdb original titles might help you ! $\endgroup$ – Fabich Jul 17 '16 at 22:25
  • $\begingroup$ Hmm it's Laberinto, not Laberintos... $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Allan Jul 17 '16 at 23:19
  • $\begingroup$ Is that correct? $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Allan Jul 17 '16 at 23:25
  • $\begingroup$ Congratulation ! I 've made a small mistake in the last poster : I wanted to have a space and a 'S'. I will correct the puzzle and your answer when I can ;) $\endgroup$ – Fabich Jul 18 '16 at 8:21

Addition to Jonathan Allan's answer.

I think the first one is Zombieland. Looks like a dismembered hand and the guy wants his Twinkies.
