Hailee Steinfeld & Douglas Booth share an intense moment in the new poster for Romeo & Juliet.
The poster premiered today on TeenVogue.com and we love it. The tag line, “the most dangerous love story ever told” accompanies the photo of Douglas’ Romeo holding onto Hailee’s Juliet.
Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare’s epic and searing tale of love, is revitalized on screen by writer Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) and director Carlos Carlei (The Flight of the Innocent). An ageless story from the world’s most renowned author is reimagined for the 21st Century. This adaptation is told in the lush traditional setting it was written, but gives a new generation the chance to fall in love with the enduring legend. With an all-star cast including Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Paul Giamatti and Stellan Skarsgaard, it affords those unfamiliar with the tale the chance to put faces to the two names they’ve undoubtedly heard innumerable times: Romeo and Juliet. Every generation deserves to discover this lasting love.
The film opens October 11, 2013 and also stars Damian Lewis, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Ed Westwick.
