Howl Trailer: James Franco Channels His Inner Beatnik

Between his soap opera appearances and myriad viral videos, it can be easy to forget that James Franco is actually a very talented actor. The trailer for Howl is the perfect reminder of Franco's acting chops, taking us back to the beat generation for a glimpse at the life and career of poet Allen Ginsberg. Titled for Ginsberg's famous (and in some cases, infamous) poem "Howl," the film is a juxtaposition of Ginsberg's creative process and the trial that debated the poem's controversial content in 1957.

Jon Hamm plays Ginsberg's defense attorney, but if I told you that Don Draper was plunked into the middle of this movie, it wouldn't be a huge stretch. I caught this movie back at Sundance, and it's definitely worth a look for Franco's remarkable performance. Watch the trailer and let me know what you think after the jump.
