Today I saw the trailer for Julie Taymor’s new movie, Across the Universe. It looks spectacular! Jim Sturgess and Evan Rachel Wood star in this fictional love story set in 1960s America, with the music of the Beatles being paired with pivotal scenes.
I can’t wait to see it. I’ve been a big fan of Julie Taymor since seeing her direction of the Broadway musical version of Disney’s The Lion King, as well as her feature film debut of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus. As anyone who is familiar with her work knows, Taymor is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to creating beautiful, fanciful scenes. I’m sure this movie will be nothing short of breathtaking.
