How cool is that? It's like a Critereon DVD cover! Sure, they couldn't have used this design in America - too... avant-garde, perhaps - but I think it's the best design for the movie.
I also happen to love the new Japanese posters for Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited as well as the one for upcoming pig fantasy Penelope. Both are far and away the best designs for their respective films. The Darjeeling particularly feels kind of special. It reminds me of an old poster, the ones that looked like they had been painted and it definitely gets the charm of the film across much better than the American design. The Penelope one is just cute, and it gets bonus points for throwing Christina Ricci on there in full on pig-mode, unlike the other editions of the poster which cover it up or place it in silhouette. That and doesn't it just totally strike you as a book cover that you would see for a fairy tale?
