Sheet-y Saturday.

Where we take a look at posters for upcoming features.

James Franco plays Allen Ginsberg and we get a glimpse of greatness in the retro first poster for the film.
The part with Franco in full beatnik mode is terrific, gotta love the boldness of the yellow and his intense look but the part on top featuring Jon Hamm feels a bit too pedestrian. Hamm is truly awesome but I can't help thinking what the hell is Don Draper doing on top of Allen Ginsberg?

This is a poster for a movie called Vampires Suck, we obviously won't get into how awful it is.
I just wanted to point out how wrong they got it with the girl playing Kristin Stewart. We all know Stewart can't gasp! She only has one expression.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest might be the lesser entry in the Millennium trilogy but this poster truly encompasses how badass Lisbeth Salander truly is.
The intense mohawk, the severe expression...and the cigarette! I'm astounded an American poster will feature smoking.

What's your take on these?

Oh god - the guy on the right's head in that spoof movie poster is so bizarrely pasted it's uncomfortable to look at! Think they'll give me money if I offer my Photoshopping services if only just to move that head up a centimeter or two for my own comfort?

Hahaha not think that's likely Luke.
Perhaps they will say the error is in the spirit of the spoof.
I love that Lady GaGa is in it too lol.

The yellow part of the Howl poster really does look fantastic.
