Mix and Match Posters

Usually, Euro posters are better than US one sheets, but that isn't the case with the new UK poster for 'The Town' directed by and starring Ben Affleck. Shoot-out element makes little sense -- they're not shooting at each other, and, cop on far left is shooting into the sky.

US version (below) that rolled out a few days ago is much better. Way more dynamic, and all the elements gel better.

However, I do like the character element of the UK poster better than the US counterpart. So, if you cut the characters from the UK version (and cool down the color and desaturate) and paste it to the US version you get something like:

Not bad. A few pixels tall maybe, but, not bad.
