On the heels of the hi-res poster for The Tempest, which we brought to you yesterday, Miramax Films and Walt Disney Studios has also provided to us this still from the film which features Helen Mirren, Felicity Jones and Djimon Hounsou. The still has been added to our gallery for the film, seen below.
In her big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s mystical thriller The Tempest, Academy Award®–nominated Julie Taymor (“Across the Universe,” “Frida,” “Titus”) brings an original dynamic to the story by changing the gender of the sorcerer Prospero into the sorceress Prospera, portrayed by Oscar® winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen”). Prospera’s journey spirals through vengeance to forgiveness as she reigns over a magical island, cares for her young daughter, Miranda, and unleashes her powers against shipwrecked enemies in this exciting, masterly mix of romance, tragicomedy and the supernatural. The Tempest opens in limited release on December 10 and wide release one week later on December 17.
