One of them sees the depicter of poet Allen Ginsberg recalling his experience, while the other one previews a scene set in a courtroom where his work is being evaluated.

Few days away from its limited U.S. release, "Howl" is previewed in some new clips. One snippet features flashback scenes as James Franco's Allen Ginsberg recalls his experience as a copy boy. The other clip, meanwhile, sees a footage set in a court room where his poem "Howl" is put on trial.

A portrait of a renegade artist breaking down barriers to find love and redemption, the film is recounted using three interwoven threads which are the tumultuous life events that led young Ginsberg to find his true voice as an artist, society's reaction (the obscenity trial), and mind-expanding animation that echoes the startling originality of the poem itself.

David Strathairn plays prosecutor Ralph McIntosh while Jon Hamm portrays defense attorney Jake Ehrlich. The likes of Jeff Daniels, Mary-Louise Parker, Treat Williams and Alesssandro Nivola will be seen as witnesses at the trial with Bob Balaban starring as conservative Judge Clayton Horn.

Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman team up to serve behind the lens of "Howl" and write the script too. This genre-bending biopic has joined several film festivals, including the 60th Annual Berlin International Film Festival, and will grace selected U.S. theaters on September 24.
