Early Teaser Posters for Baz Luhrmann's Australia
A few early teaser posters for Baz Luhrmann's Australia have been discovered courtesy of MoviesOnline. We've been featuring various gorgeous photos from Australia over the past nine months and these three posters have that same beautifully epic look to them. They seem fairly legit, but they didn't come from any trusted studio source and are quite low quality, so I can't say they're 100% confirmed. That "A" logo in the lower right and lack of any other wording or logos is also quite peculiar, but they still look good. Take a look now and hopefully we'll see finalized versions from Fox sometime in the near future.
Thanks again to MoviesOnline for finding these. You can see them just a bit bigger over there, but this is really the only quality currently available. We'll update this post once we get better copies soon.
A romantic action-adventure set in northern Australia prior to World War II, Australia centers on an English aristocrat (Kidman) who inherits a ranch the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle driver (Jackman) to drive 2000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country’s most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin, Australia by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier. With his new film, Luhrmann is painting on a vast canvas, creating a cinematic experience that brings together romance, drama, adventure and spectacle.
Australia is both co-written and directed by Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann of Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet previously. Other high profile screenwriters Ronald Harwood (The Pianist, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), Stuart Beattie (Collateral, Pirates of the Caribbean, G.I. Joe), and Richard Flanagan (The Sound of One Hand Clapping) have been involved with elements of the script as well. Australia is currently set to arrive in theaters on November 26th.

The logo is quite awkward considering the type of movie that it is.

I really like the posters but I just don't know how I feel about how the actual movie looks.

yeah, awkward logo. having it that small makes it feels like its the Grade A Beef logo. If the posters were separated, I think they'd work well. Having them sequenced so close doesn't let them breathe. If they merged all the elements together, going from fire to rain to smoke, appropiately incorporating the posters together - then yes, I think it'd work well.

The plastic-looking Kidman is really not going to fit in to this movie. And even if she didn't look like she just walked out of Madame Tussauds, she is a crap actress.

really? i think it looks amazing. i'm surprised more people aren't excited for this. but, then again, I have always been a HUGE baz fan i guess thats it? whats the deal with nicole kidman haters recently? the bloggers are all attacking her so now everyone else needs to follow suit? i think shes a very decent actress. not the best but by no means lacking in any way...but thats just my opinion.
