Art direction for every modern western movie or TV show poster:

"OK, we need a background. Something with two parallels lines running into the distance, like train tracks or something. Make it look like there's smoke, and give everything a scratchy sepia look. Now, put the hero in the center, and have him stand kind of awkward. Make him holding his gun, but not properly, more like he's just about to drop it. Is he wearing a big hat? Good, now tilt his head down. More. More. More. More. So it looks like he's studying his belly button. PERFECT!"

Can't say as I have paid enough attention to have noticed that. My idea for a western poster would be- Hero in hat on horse, with a rifle cradled in his arm... and a busty saloon gal with a heart of gold Wink

Ben Beam, you NAILED it!  CC, you brought it to life  Grin


Let's also not forget to maybe give him a smaller gun for the poster than what he actually carries in the film (don't want to offend or worry people - guns are BAD!!!!)
