We’ve seen some stills, an exciting first trailer, and even heard about a forthcoming clothing line. Now Anna Karenina keeps the hype steady-flowin with a new poster. It’s decadent, bold, and introduces… The Train. Checkie out inside.
As you can see, this one tells a very different story from the first poster, although both play on the idea of the drama unfolding onstage. Here, Keira as Anna is featured front and center with the two men (Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Count Vronsky and Jude Law as Alexei Karenin) off in the periphery. And she is, necessarily, right in the path of an oncoming train.
Here’s what the cheeky guys at Indiewire had to say:
Joe Wright is definitely going for something far beyond what we might come to expect in a period-based adaptation of a literary masterwork, yet the tone of the trailer is evocative of some of the great, classic pieces of cinema of yore (think “Doctor Zhivago”). Frankly, we’re getting a Baz Luhrmann vibe but with a more restrained hand, and without the Jay-Z tossed in for the kids.
Lol, guess they’re not too exited about Luhrmann‘s upcoming Gatsby project. But what do you guys think of the new poster? Here’s the first one to refresh your memory:
Anna Karenina hits U.K. theaters on September 7th and opens in the U.S. on November 9th.
