Across the Universe poster

06.15.2007
I subscribe to the 'less-is-more' school of thought, so this poster looks okay by me. People seem to be kind of frustrated that the poster doesn't show any of the visual flair that this flick promises, that for such a lush film, the poster is too bland. I don't know, I really like it.

As I'm sure you know, there has been a long and arduous tug-of-war between director Julie Taymor (FRIDA) and the studio, for creative control around this flick. This is the thing that I really hate about the film industry: why aren't proven visionary directors given final cut? I'm sure the answer is money, which, frankly, sucks. Still, what're you gonna do? That's the game. The film follows a dock worker (Jim Sturgess) who travels to England in the 1960s to meet his estranged father. There he falls in love with a young girl, Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood). Along the way, they also get caught up in the peace movement, and the whole thing is linked to various Beatles songs that are relevant to the times. This thing looks a little out there, but Evan Rachel Wood is a magnificent young actress.
Extra Tidbit: Most of the characters in the movie are named after different Beatles songs.

I love the Beatles, but this movie will suck. Everything is to on the nose. The main character's name is Jude for God sakes. I would be very happy if it were good, but it won't be.

Hehe

I like strawberries. I hope the movie will be released the way Julie Taymor wants it to appear. She's one of the most talented female directors right now.

I don't know...I kinda like how they're captured in a strawberry. It's definitely one of the more original poster designs I've seen recently.

For some reason this reminds me of the movie LEGEND poster. You know, that old 80's movie with Tom Cruise.
This is an awesome poster IMO.
