Best Movie Poster Ever!
Two-time Oscar winner Sean Penn can be a hit-or-miss type of actor, but he's scored a golden coup with his new movie's poster alone.
It's for This Must Be The Place, opening March 30, and it's described like so.
"Cheyenne is a former rock star.
At 50, he still dresses 'Goth' and lives in Dublin off his royalties.
"The death of his father, with whom he wasn't on speaking terms, brings him back to New York.
"He discovers his father had an obsession: to seek revenge for a humiliation he had suffered.
"Cheyenne decides to pick up where his father left off, and starts a journey, at his own pace, across America."
This film fits in perfectly with the burgeoning trend of movies about kids pursuing their late fathers' wishes.
But in this case, the kid happens to be 50 and is dressed like a Goth, so I dig it even more.
Truth be told, I love this poster.
I love Sean's look.
I worship Cheyenne.
And I'd better get a free screening for it or I will dress goth and scare people.
