Fountain's Poster

By now most everyone's seen this, it showed up online over the weekend, but well, I gotta put my own personal substantial marketing force behind promoting Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain, otherwise nobody would have even heard of the movie, right?


Here's the poster:

Seems Harry at AICN has actually seen the movie itself already, but can't really talk about it, though he does throw out these nuggets:

"... the poster goes a long way toward summing up the mood of the film without really ruining anything. It’s an exquisite image for an exquisite film. If I was going to try to give you a hint of what I’ll eventually write, I’d say this... Acts of faith. Acts of devotion. Acts of love. In Darren Aronofsky's THE FOUNTAIN, these are all the same thing, the acts that connect his characters to something larger. The greatest miracle of this beautiful, human science-fiction story is that he's managed to make a film about infinity that pays full service to the subject while managing to only run 98 minutes. Not many films can blow your mind and break your heart at the same time, but this one will."

Sigh. Too long a wait!
