As we reported a few weeks ago, stills from Anna Karenina had been released giving fans a taste of what most of them can only imagine until the film arrives stateside later this year. Luckily, Focus Features has made more promotional material available releasing eight new posters reminding audiences exactly what they have to look forward to.
Although character posters are usually used as part of the publicity campaign for films with more Blockbuster appeal, the understated composition of the posters maintain the elegance demanded from the film.
Anna Karenina stars Keira Knightley as the quote unquote tragic hero of the tale who sets in motion a series of events that both brings together and tears apart some of the affluent families in her wide-reaching social circle. Tolstoy set the stage for a beautifully complex film, and certainly gave Knightley a good reason to return to the world of costume dramas.
Knightley stars alongside Jude Law, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Ruth Wilson, Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, Olivia Williams and Emily Watson.
Check out the posters for yourself and let us know what you think of Knightley and the rest of the cast in the comment section below.
The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, following the award-winning boxoffice successes “Pride & Prejudice” and “Atonement,” is a bold, theatrical new vision of the epic story of love, adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (“Shakespeare in Love”). The story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart. As Anna (Knightley) questions her happiness and marriage, change comes to all around her.
Anna Karenina hits theaters on November 16th.
