The poster and trailer for Howl, the upcoming movie from filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman that stars James Franco as poet Allen Ginsberg, have been released. The film interweaves three stories: the landmark 1957 obscenity trial over Ginsberg's epic poem, an imaginative animated journey through Howl, and a portrait of a gay man who found new ways to express himself and in doing so, galvanized a generation. Howl, which also stars Jon Hamm, Mary Louise Parker, David Strathairn, Treat Williams, and Jeff Daniels, will open in select theaters on September 24.
