A goat happens to be the main character in the new poster for, The Men Who Stare at Goats, which might also be the funniest poster this year. Besides the goat, George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Ewan McGregor and Kevin Spacey, are also on the poster, which was posted on !Yahoo.
As you might suspect, The Men Who Stare at Goats, is a dark comedy and revolves around the reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor), who meets Lyn Cassady (George Clooney), which has quite a story to tell.
Lyn is a Special Forces agent that has worked with a top secret, military unit for the last 20 years and he tells Bob about their extraordinary and somewhat bizarre activities. Like how they tried to kill goats telepathically, just by staring at them, as shown in the movie trailer.
The movie, based on a book with the same title written by the journalist Jon Ronson, will have premiere, 6 November 2009.
