Julie Taymor’s “Tempest” poster sets Shakespeare’s world ablaze

By Sean O’Connell Now that’s how you make a teaser poster.

Julie Taymor’s spin on William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” will ride the festival circuit this fall before arriving in theaters on Dec. 10. The gender-swapping film stars Helen Mirren as the Sorceress Prospera, who plays magically deadly games with the likes of Russell Brand, Chris Cooper, Alan Cumming, Alfred Molina and Djimon Hounsou.

The new poster, hosted on Yahoo Movies, begets a serious action film with fantastic supernatural effects. Given Taymor’s penchant for stunning visuals in such productions as “Across the Universe,” “Titus” and “Frida,” this should come as no surprise.

We hope to get a look at “The Tempest” in September. In the meantime, check out the gorgeous one-sheet.
