Have a look at young John Lennon in new Nowhere Boy poster

NOWHERE BOY stars newcomer Aaron Johnson as a young John Lennon, and the first poster for the film has debuted which you can see below.

It’s an interesting mish-mash of color, and Johnson kind of looks like Buddy Holly, but I suppose I don’t know what teenage John Lennon looked like per se. Here’s the official synopsis of the film which premiered at Sundance:

Imagine… John Lennon's childhood. Liverpool 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen year-old is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John: Mimi, the buttoned-up Aunt who raised him, and Julia, the prodigal mother. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into the new and exciting world of rock n' roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney. Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice - and an icon explodes into the world.

Extra Tidbit: True story: My aunt was friends with John Lennon way back in the day, and sang background vocals on Instant Karma.
