Paul Rudd Is A Smiley Moron In First Poster For 'Our Idiot Brother'

Even though the film received respectful, rather than rave, reviews on its Sundance bow (our own review was one of the more positive), you can't cast Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, Steve Coogan, Hugh Dancy, T.J. Miller, Adam Scott and Kathryn Hahn in a comedy together without leaving us begging to see the finished film, and that's why we've been firmly looking forward to "Our Idiot Brother" all year long.

The film, which marks Rudd's reunion with Jesse Peretz, his director on "The Château," follows the actor as a Candide-like innocent who wreaks havoc on the lives of his three sisters (Banks, Deschanel, Mortimer) with his perma-stoned, super optimistic ways. The film's August release date is sneaking up, we've already seen a promising trailer, and now Moviefone (via Movieline) have premiered the film's poster, and it's pretty decent, nicely capturing Rudd's sunny demeanor in the picture. Check it out full size after the jump, and count the days until The Weinstein Company release the picture, on August 26th.
