Just a few days ago we got ahold of several new stills from Momentum Pictures’ upcoming Dorian Gray adaptation, and now we have a look at the UK quad poster. I have to say I like it … quite a lot.
Based on the book “The Picture of Dorian Gray”, when Dorian Gray (Ben Barnes), a wealthy but naïve and irresistible young man, has his portrait pointed, he rashly wishes that he could remain as beautiful, youthful, and alluring as the handsome face in the portrait. Little does he know that his wish will come true. When encouraged by the decadent Lord Henry Wotton (Colin Firth) into a life of depravity and self-indulgence, Gray is stunned to discover that while the face in the painting is aging grotesquely, he is not! In fact, he remains as beautiful as ever. Nothing ages him… but Gray’s wanton lifestyle will eventually catch up with him, and the consequences of his reckless behavior will come to haunt him.
The image comes courtesy of IMP Awards. Dorian Gray, directed by Oliver Parker, arrives in theaters in the UK on 09.09.09; still no word on the US release date, however.
