Beautiful Character Posters from Amenábar's Agora, Too!
Also found on the official website for Alejandro Amenábar's Agora are these four beautifully conceived character posters. We featured the trailer yesterday, which gave you a small glimpse at the epic story and what to expect from the film. These four posters give you a better idea of the four main characters: Rachel Weisz as the philosopher Hypatia (Libertad meaning Freedom), Oscar Isaac as Orestes (Poder meaning Power), Max Minghella as Davus (Pasión meaning Passion), and Sami Samir as Cyril (Ambición meaning Ambition). I really hope at least a few of you out there are still interested in seeing this! Check these out.
Agora is directed by Spanish-Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar, of Open Your Eyes, The Others, and the Oscar winning The Sea Inside previously. The screenplay was co-written by Amenábar and his writing partner Mateo Gil of Open Your Eyes, Vanilla Sky, and The Sea Inside previously. Amenábar wants audiences "to see, feel and smell a remote civilization as if it were as real as today," that civilization being the Egyptians of 4th Century AD. Agora is still looking for a US distributor and doesn't have a release date.
