Revenge of the Stripey Poster Design!!

It's been a while since we've had a big Hollywood blockbuster use the stripey design pattern for a poster, but just when you think "maybe they've given up?" then *voila* up pops another one.

Here we have the poster for Eagle Eye, a movie starring Shia LaBeouf (we like him 'round these here parts) and somehow involving Steven Spielberg. However, I actually don't mind it considering it uses a design aesthetic that riles my blood. I like what they have done with the superimposing of Shia and co-star (and second stripe owner) Michelle Monaghan. It makes a nice effect and it's a bit a more pleasing to the eye that just stuff like this or (worst of all) this. Also, five Shia's are better than one, okay.

That facial hair is ridiculous though. If the moustache doesn't visibly connect to the jawline then get rid of it!
