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.

Goth rock? The minute I saw the poster, I thought he was playing a drag queen, and Sean Penn is surprisingly attractive as a woman. Reminds me of Anjelica Huston during the 90s.

He plays a 50-year-old ex music star? So he's basically playing his ex, Madonna.

Seems like he appears to be channeling Robert Smith of "The Cure" ?

This art director agrees. The Oscar for best poster goes to Penn.

Off-topic, but I don't know how to email you -- Mr. Musto, aren't you going to weigh in on the Kurt Cameron stuff?

Sean has gone goth. Katy Perry has gone goth.  I thought this trend ended in, like 1998.

I see Edward Scissorhands, too. When I read that it starts in Dublin I was hoping for a Bono accent, and "50 year old rock star" makes me think he could throw in a few jabs at Madonna for fun.

Clearly you do because you clicked on the story read it and then made a comment. Stupid Douche.
