It's cool alright. I remember you posting this before, possibly on our message board. Everyone seems to prefer the older style of postering. They should at least learn from them and create something new instead of just the heads of the cast.


Yes. THE FUTURIST! posted this as a favorite movie poster on the message board.

He loves the original artwork and idea of the whole piece.
