Trippy Freakin' Poster for Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock

Freakin' rad! Not only is this poster so insanely perfect for the movie that it's not even funny, but it was debuted over at Rolling Stone, the perfect place to debut anything related to Taking Woodstock, the new Ang Lee movie. We debuted the trailer a few weeks ago courtesy of "Important Things with Demetri Martin," although it was a bit too wild for my tastes. However, this poster is pretty frickin' awesome, and although I'm not a child of the '60s nor did I attend Woodstock, I'm digging it. I'm sure my parents will be begging me for one of these soon, too. Be sure to check this out and head over to Rolling Stone for more.
Taking Woodstock is directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Ang Lee, of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hulk, Brokeback Mountain, and Lust, Caution previously. The screenplay was written by Lee's writing partner James Schamus, of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hulk, and Lust, Caution previously. This is based on Elliot Tiber and Tom Monte's book of the same name. In addition to Demetri Martin, this stars Eugene Levy, Imelda Staunton, Emile Hirsch, Liev Schreiber, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and a whole boat load of other actors. Focus Features will be bringing Taking Woodstock to limited theaters on August 14th.

Amen to hippies. I mean, amen to damning hippies. Pipedreams of a culture by now lost & waiting paranoid in a relatives' basement, waiting for 2012. But the chicks still had style. Nonetheless - invest trust no further than a good time. Demetri Martin better've had a good time makin' this one, tho. He looks like a kid who desperately needs his virginity taken from him, by force. Even if he already lost it to that chick at the library. You know what I'm talkin' about.

I have heard one of the surprise scenes in the movie is the Woodstock baby, which was supposed to have been delivered by elliot tiber himself.
