WARNING! Do no proceed beyond this poster!

While the film itself appears to reek of franchisitis (that being the disease of film sequels created not to organically advance a cinematic mythology but to perpetuate a series for financial exploitation), Fox's advance poster for 28 Weeks Later is without a doubt the best horror theatrical poster so far this year. The striking image both generates curiosity and unease in the viewer and a places one within the context of the film.

Not to mention a subtle similarity to one of the many unofficial graphic designs for the original Dawn of the Dead.
