It may be predictable given the setting but at least the poster for “Taking Woodstock” is eye-catching and features no floating heads. As Rolling Stone notes, it’s in the style of Wes Wilson’s psychedelic artwork from the 1960s. It works pretty well but it’s overly difficult to read the tagline, “A generation began in his backyard.”

You can check out the poster below. For those just tuning in, here’s a brief synopsis: “Taking Woodstock” tells the true story of Tiber, played by comedian Demetri Martin, who helps organizer Michael Lang secure a concert permit in order to stage the iconic 1969 music festival in upstate New York. The film also stars Emile Hirsch, Liev Schreiber, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Paul Dano, Imelda Staunton, and Eugene Levy. The film hits theatres on August 14th.
