JoBlo recently got an exlusive look at the posters for the new Ridley Scott film American Gangster starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe. I love them like I imagine someone loves their own child. I want to marry them and drive cross country in a comby van sharing our love for each other to both wanton rebels from the wrong side of the tracks whom we know are capable of change (as all those dance films teach us, they can change), but also to conservative church-going folks who are scared of the love we share. We will try to bring them over to our part-gothic, part-hipster party so that we can convert them to our freeloving ways.
Seriously. I cherish these two posters. I covet them. I believe they were sent to me from those cruel and heartless bastards in Hollywood as a means of apologising for all the nasty shite I've had to endure from it. Apology accepted.

Seriously. I'm kvelling right now and I ain't even Jewish!
I'm sure none of y'all will love these even half as much as I do but, damn, these are just... wow. This is what a poster should be. Not some halfarsed cropped movie still on a white background. Aaagh. Someone stop me, please or I won't stop. I'll just keep gushing. I know sooner or later they will release a poster with both of the designs smushed together, and the DVD (the regular one, not the special edition) will feature both Denzel and Russell in their natural guises sans artiness.
But whatever, until then I have this... this... thing of beauty. I can only hope that the movie is half as good, which is sort of strange considering it's only a poster, but 'tev YOU DON'T KNOW ME!
