07.06.12 by Mandy
It's been a hot summer, but checking out the snow-filled new poster for this fall's Anna Karenina may cool you down. It also might make you want to yell "Hey! Anna! Look out for that train!"
So far, the photos released from this newest big-screen adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's 1877 novel show opulent sets and historically accurate, detailed costumes. It's no surprise that the historical details are on point since the movie is directed by Joe Wright, who has directed star Keira Knightley previously in Atonement as well as in 2005's Pride & Prejudice. This newest poster, which also serves as a bit of a spoiler as far as the ending goes, features Knightley, as the conflicted Anna, caught between the men in her life, Count Vronsky (Aaron Johnson) and her husband Alexei Karenin (Jude Law).
Anna Karenina also stars Matthew Macfadyen as Oblonsky, Kelly Macdonald as Dolly, Alicia Vikander as Kitty, and Domhnall Gleeson as Levin. The screenplay was adapted from Tolstoy's novel by Oscar winner Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love).
