As I Lay Dying
Background: Recently, James Franco got excited about adapting William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying. Why? Because he’s the type of guy that gets excited about doing weird shit—like selling invisible art. You probably heard about the adaptation at some point or another, but what you probably didn’t know is the film already came out. More importantly for our purposes, so did its poster, and it features Franco looking all intense while surrounded by some overgrowth.

Overall Poster Rating: 7/10

Reason: I’ve never read As I Lay Dying. In fact, I don’t even have the slightest idea what it’s about, but judging by this poster, I would say Franco’s character is an intense blue collar guy who works in or around the woods and has probably just experienced a terrible loss. Give me a minute to check with Wikipedia and verify. Checking. Checking. Checking. Wooo! I didn’t not see this level of heartbreak coming. Also, a forest does not figure heavily into the plot; so, I’m going to go back and knock the overall poster score down a point.
