There's something equally arresting and compelling about this billboard creative for Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock's new movie, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.

Maybe it's the juxtaposition of the title being 'Extremely Loud' combined with the young Thomas Horn cupping his hands over his mouth (like the speak no evil wise monkey), or maybe it's his expressive eyes that draw you in so much.

The movie certainly looks like it's going to be a tear-jerker though, as it follows a nine year old boy whose father died in the World Trade Center on 9/11 as he searches New York City for a lock that matches the key his dad left him.
