John Cusack's The Raven: Now THAT is a Movie Poster

So far, Comic Con has seen the debut of a number of movie posters, including ones for The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers and posters for two Steven Soderbergh movies that didn't even warrant their own post. They have all been varying degrees of disappointing, but this one -- for John Cusack's The Raven -- is striking.

The Raven stars Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe, and while I do dig the poster, I'm not as certain about the film, which seems to do for Poe what Robert Downey, Jr. did for Sherlock Holmes. It fictionalizes Poe and turns him into a hunter of serial killers, although with James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) and knowing that the movie takes places during the last week of Poe's life, we might get something that's not just stylized but acceptably Gothic.

And if you need more reason to unbuckle the belt on your enthusiasm, maybe this movie poster will provide it.
