Vulture Premieres the Poster for James Franco’s Howl


A bearded, bespectacled James Franco stars as Allen Ginsberg in Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's Howl, the story of the poet's classic work and the uproar it caused. Also featured in the film — which hits New York and San Francisco on September 24, and Los Angeles on October 1, with a national rollout to follow — are Jon Hamm, David Strathairn, Bob Balaban, Alessandro Nivola, Treat Williams, Mary-Louise Parker, and Jeff Daniels. It's a handsome cast and Oscilloscope Laboratories has given Vulture an exclusive first peek at Howl's handsome poster.
