Jim Carrey in The Number 23 poster

The number 23 is most often associated with NBA legend Michael Jordan or, if you're a diehard Yankees fan, Donnie 'Baseball" Mattingly.

But from now on, you may also associate it with the movie 'The Number 23,' thanks to your first-ever peek at this creepy (yet undeniably cool) poster featuring Jim Carrey. If you look closely, you'll notice that Carrey has a bunch of crap -- including the number 23 -- scribbled all over his usually-funny-but-here-very-serious face. Click on the image for a larger version of the poster.

In the flick, Carrey plays a man who becomes obsessed with a book that appears to be based on his life. Unfortunately, said book ends with a brutal murder that has yet to be committed in real life.

The film, which co-stars Virginia Madsen and Danny Huston, was directed by Joel Schumacher. Look for it in theaters Feb. 23, 2007.
