Oh, how adorable! The first poster for Nora Ephron's Julie & Julia, starring Amy Adams as Julie Powell and Meryl Streep as Julia Child, has debuted, and we've got it exclusively for you! In case you missed it, we included a first look photo of Meryl Streep back in the EW look at the Movies of 2009. Hopefully Sony will debut the trailer soon, as it's hard to say much about this without some footage. Those of us at ShoWest last week were shown a lengthy preview of the film, and it looks quite charming, although not at all anything any fanboy would be interested in. Anyway, check out this teaser poster and stay tuned for more soon!
The film follows Powell, a government employee who decides to cook her way through legendary cook Julia Child's classic cookbook, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" in one year's time out of her small Queens kitchen. Powell blogs her daily experiences, gaining a loyal following along the way.
Julie & Julia is both written and directed by Nora Ephron, the writer and director of Sleepless in Seattle, Mixed Nuts, Michael, You've Got Mail, and Bewitched previously. The film is based on both Julia Child's autobiographical book "My Life in France" as well as Julie Powell's book "Julie & Julia". Sony Pictures will be bringing Julie & Julia to theaters everywhere on August 7th this summer. Will you be seeing this?

Ephron, Adams, and Streep. As a straight male, is it wrong for me to be looking forward this this?

Nora Ephron is a TERRIBLE director! "Mixed Nuts", "Michael", "Lucky Numbers", "You've Got Mail", "Bewitched" (!!!!!) The only semi-decent film she's done was "Sleepless in Seattle". And her writing sucks too for the most part.

I'm anxious to see this film adaptation of the book Julie & Julia. But I have my reservations...Nora Ephron is very hit or miss but I think it will be interesting to see how the 2 books (My Life in France and Julie & Julia) have been blended to form a cohesive script. However, I bet Julie Powell is a little miffed...A big part of her blog turned best seller is her issues with her weight due to a condition called PCOS. Amy Adams never fails to move me in any role she plays but unless she puts on some pounds the story may lose some of it's realism, "snarkiness" and heart. Thanks Hollywood for only giving us the skinny girls, again!

Streep was awesome as Julia.... she was perfect! The tragedy is that Streep will not have a chance to play Julia again, for instance, in a truly comprehensive movie about Julia's life! Streep forever sets the standard for an actor's portrayal of Julia, and the opportunity to do it right has been wasted by Ephron's arrogance and desire to be in everyone's face with yet another mediocre movie bearing her name. I am truly pissed off that Streep's incredible opportunity to portray Julia Child has been wasted on this sad telling of a whiney, pathetic, New York blogger's life by a fame grabbing slob like Ephron!!!
