Poster for Julie Taymor’s THE TEMPEST Starring Helen Mirren

     August 11, 2010


The poster for Julie Taymor’s adaptation of The Tempest has gone online.  It serves as a visual reminder that Taymor directed Titus.  I think it would have been smart to straight-up mention that movie on the poster, but you still get the notion that Taymor is a visually inventive director who will bring you a fresh take on Shakespeare’s centuries-old play.

I really like that we’re getting two films this fall that sell Helen Mirren as a badass (the other being Red).  With The Tempest, she’s leading a great cast that includes Alfred Molina, Alan Cumming, Djimon Hounson, Russell Brand, Chris Cooper, Ben Whishaw, and David Strathairn.  Hit the jump to check out the poster.  The Tempest makes its world premiere as the closing night film of the Venice Film Festival and will hit theaters on December 10th.
