Walk the Line

Here's my new favorite movie poster. I'm thinking of buying a copy for my office.

It's a teaser poster for Walk the Line, the new Johnny Cash biopic due this fall and starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Man in Black and Reese Witherspoon as June Carter-Cash. What I love about this poster is how powerfully it sums up Cash's life and career-- about to walk into the fires of Hell, but looking back at a chance for salvation. Phoenix looks nothing like Cash, of course, but his image in this poster perfectly captures Cash's larger-than-life persona. The movie can always turn out to be a dud, but this poster shows that the marketing guys at Fox know what they're doing.

Here's my favorite picture of the man himself:
