Here's a look at the American movie poster for Howl's Moving Castle. This is pretty good, squarely aimed at the independent and foreign movie crowd. The design is very solid, there is some great variety of scenes from the movie, and flowing words of praise from the critics. I think this design works brilliantly. It's exactly what is needed for a sprawling epic like Howl.
But is it better than pie? Hmm...I don't know about that.
