Check This Out: Sony's Poster for Harold Ramis' Year One

Meet your ancestors… Sony has unveiled the official poster for Year One, the upcoming biblical comedy from director Harold Ramis. It's designed to look a lot like the Superbad poster (also a Sony release), but instead, it has Jack Black and Michael Cera with long hair and dressed in animal skins. While I didn't think any of the TV spots shown during the Super Bowl were particularly very funny, I'm still holding out hope for this in the end. I've got a lot of faith in Harold Ramis. Plus, I'd love to see Black and Cera act like fools in ancient times and laugh my ass off at their shenanigans. But will this poster actually sell audiences?
Year One is directed by comedy mastermind Harold Ramis, who played Egon in Ghostbusters and both wrote and directed comedy classics like Caddyshack, Groundhog Day, Multiplicity, Analyze This, and The Ice Harvest. The screenplay was co-written by Ramis as well as "The Office" writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. Sony Pictures is bringing Year One to theaters everywhere on June 19th this summer.
