'The Town' poster continues to unnerve, but in a good way

Posted on

The poster for Ben Affleck’s Beantown cops-and-robbers drama The Town is so effective, I need to make sure you’ve all seen it and felt uneasy, too. If you’ve watched the trailer, odds are the one-sheet stirs the fight or flight response. I can’t decide what to do: Look away or stare. It’s that blue-gray tone — stark, ominous, and adds to the chill. (It also permeates the new clip from the film embedded below.) Best poster in recent memory?
