Check Out the Quad Poster for Tom Hooper's 'The King's Speech'

If I can have your attention please, for just a moment. I would like to bring to your attention the official UK quad poster for Tom Hooper's The King's Speech, as debuted on LoveFilm (via HeyUGuys). I'm featuring this first and foremost because King's Speech is still my favorite film of the year, hands down, and it arrives in limited theaters today, yet no one knows about it (watch the trailer). Second, the US poster looked awful and we've been waiting for the replacement that they say is coming, so this should hold us over (along with an international poster). I honestly can't stress enough how amazing this film is - please go see it right away!
Story of the man who became King George VI and overcame a dreaded stutter with the help of a friend.
The King's Speech is directed by Emmy winning British filmmaker Tom Hooper, of Red Dust, Longford, the John Adams mini-series and The Damned United previously. The screenplay was written by David Seidler, of mostly TV movies previously, including Malice in Wonderland, Dancing in the Dark, Quest for Camelot, The King and I and also Kung Fu Killer previously. After premiering in Telluride & Toronto, The Weinstein Company is bringing The King's Speech to theaters starting Thanksgiving week, November 26th, this fall.
I don't like how he's looking straight at us...perhaps if he was looking at notes for his speech it would make the poster more comedic...regardless I cannot wait to see this.

@ Alex, is this appropriate for 13+?

Geoffrey Rush is great, so this looks like it will be good.

# 3 I haven't seen it, but other than the much talked about scene where George's speech instructor has him utter obscenities (namely the f-word) to help him overcome his impediment, it's supposed to be PG rated.
