Best Movie Poster Ever? Umm... Hell Yeah!

Now I am really psyched to see this movie! After winning an appeal to get their rating changed from NC-17 to R by the MPAA, well I guess they couldn't win everything... The poster originally released for Zack And Miri Make A Porno had both of it's stars on the poster, and well, let the hilarious poster tell for itself (hint, look towards the bottom of the poster...):

Since it has basically been banned in the United States, at least one country has a sense of humor... God Bless Canada!

And since the United States needed a poster for this (I am assuming awesome) movie, well, they did it again, and it is brilliant, hilarious, and a poster to remember for a long time!:

Kevin Smith said in a statement about the original poster getting banned: "When you've got the word 'porno' in the title, naturally, the marketing materials are gonna be scrutinized more closely by the MPAA. I understand they've got a job to do, but c'mon...this image isn't that dirty; they're both fully clad." In Smith's blog on Myspace, where he premiered the new poster, he said, "Our frustration in getting an MPAA approval on the American poster led to last-resort ideas about showcasing dopey, simple images instead of risque pics of our leads - which, in turn, led to what's now the official American poster for the flick... I like it a bunch. Simple and kinda ballsy. Should be up in theaters this weekend."
