How to do a proper Movie Poster

The scan above was sent to me - it's a poster from an Eastern movie and quite possibly the greatest movie poster, ever.

Why can't American flix have such awesomeness?    Black clad villains with tomahawks tucked into their belts!  A mustached hero who's unashamed to use the toilet!   Bullets flying!!  Geez.  Right away, the expectations are set - we KNOW what this movie is all about.  No mere "serving suggestion," this flick is about bad guys, gunplay, going to the bathroom and glorious HER!

And I bet it's all over in less than two minutes.

Hollywood just doesn't get it.
