‘The Tempest’ poster

Posted by · 1:50 pm · August 11th, 2010

“The Tempest” is a title we’ve been waiting for for some time.  It wasn’t ready last year and the back and forth with Miramax raised more questions, but slowly, surely, it’s coming down the pike.  We all know Sandy Powell’s costumes will be marvelous.  I hear Elliot Goldenthal’s score is remarkable.  If nothing else, it’ll surely be another imaginative head trip from director Julie Taymor.  The poster has hit, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.  Check it out after the jump.

    That looks kinda awesome.
    Recalling Sandy Powell’s Oscar speech last ceremony, it would be hilarious if she’d win again for The Tempest. Wonder what she would say.

    A segmented poster for a film that will surely be as disjointed as Taylor’s previous efforts. Oh well. At least this didn’t languish in production hell like Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. I’d rather get this forgettable mess out of the way.

    Is the late in life career resurgence for Helen Mirren comparable to Jessica Tandy?

    I love me some Julie Taylor! So excited for this. Sure, “Across the Universe” was a mess, but what an imaginative mess it was. Bring on the weirdness!

    /3rtfu11: Mirren isn’t that old. And I’d say her career has been pretty consistent throughout.

    Definitely Across the Universe was one of the best works of Taymor.
    Not only the costumes and the astonishing production design but the breakthrough performances of Jim Sturgess and Joe Anderson.
    In my personal ballot she was in the top five of 2007 alongside P. T. Anderson, Julian Schnabel, Sean Penn and Todd Haynes.

    If this is as good as “Titus” then I will happy. Not many others will be happy, but I will.

    I’m actually really really REALLY diggin’ that poster. I’m not usually a fan of the segmented-scenes look that some posters have, but this one does it in a way that looks quite good.

    I have yet to like any of Taymor’s movies, but there are instances of greatness in each of her features. I think, eventually, she’ll hit all the right notes and hit a home run. Will this be it? We’ll see…

    the first segment of the poster really intrigues me. could the film also have a dark side, with visual effects and everything?!

    intriguing indeed.

    I saw neither “Titus” or “Frida,” but I was no fan of “Across the Universe.” Shoot me, but I just can’t get too excited about this one…

    Good poster, though.

    Is that Ben Whishaw as Ariel in the top 1/3 of the poster?

    I’m wondering too who that is in the top 1/3 of the poster. Love me some Ben Whishaw – especially after seeing Bright Star.

    Can’t wait for this movie as i absolutely LOVED Titus.

    Bash Across the Universe all you want, it was an utter mess. There were certain elements of the film however that should have warranted a higher level of attention.

    I love Frida and Titus, especially Titus though. Taymor really proved the timelessness of Shakespeare’s words through the unique re-imagining she gave us.

    Doubtless The Tempest will receive a warmer reception than what Titus saw, and more recognition for its merits.
