The cast is an interesting one, and the most controversial choice will of course be that of the lead -- Prospero has been changed to Prospera, but before you get your iambic panties in a twist, keep in mind she's being played by Helen Mirren. I've got no issue with that. Additionally, the film stars Felicity Jones, Djimon Hounsou, Alfred Molina, Chris Cooper, David Strathairn, Alan Cumming, and Russell Brand (eek!). Brand aside, that is a fucking beast of a cast. The presence of Cooper and Strathairn in the same film makes me swoon a bit, I admit.
Anyway, here's the poster. It is, unsurprisingly remarkable and utterly beautiful (particularly that first panel).
