Poster Debut for ‘Amelia’

ON

Fox Searchlight has debuted the official poster for the upcoming biopic Amelia starring Hilary Swank as the legendary aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart and directed by Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding).

The film is certain to be an Oscar contender in such areas as Best Picture, Actress and Director, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see potential Supporting nods for Ewan McGregor as Amelia’s friend and lover Gene Vidal or Richard Gere as Amelia’s husband, promoter and publishing magnate George P. Putnam.

Check out the poster below or get the higher-res version and another still from the film here and click here if you haven’t seen the trailer yet. Amelia arrives in theaters on October 23.
