Mark Romanek's Never Let Me Go

I'll usually love anything Fox Searchlight puts out and that's certainly the case here. Mark Romanek himself (via HeyUGuys) debuted this new official poster for Never Let Me Go, the upcoming indie drama starring Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man!), Keira Knightley and the always lovely Carey Mulligan. So get this, although you've all probably seen the trailer, did you know this is actually a sci-fi film? Yea, they don't want to reveal much, but there's a twist to it and it may throw a few of you off if you're just hoping for a period romance. Additionally, it was just announced today that this will be playing at the Toronto Film Festival, so congrats!

Never Let Me Go Poster

As children, Ruth, Kathy & Tommy, spend their childhood at a seemingly idyllic boarding school. As they grow into adults, they find they have to come to terms with the strength of the love they feel for each other.

Never Let Me Go is directed by Chicago-born filmmaker Mark Romanek, of only One Hour Photo previously, but he's also directed numerous music videos. The script was written by British writer Alex Garland, who is Danny Boyle's writer, known for The Beach, 28 Days Later and Sunshine. This is based on Kazuo Ishiguro's novel of the same name. Fox Searchlight is bringing Never Let Me Go to theaters starting September 15th.

    ... uh...
  • looks fine for me..

    Maybe I'm just getting a vibe from this... But it really doesn't look special. "Best novel of the Decade"?
  • A very clean and nice looking poster. I dig the typography, and the little chunk out of "go". I'd take this poster over a lot of others. I'm interested to see what this movie is like especially after hearing the 'twist' (they hint at it in the trailer but don't come out and say it, if you're paying attention you can probably figure it out).

    So yeah, thanks for telling us there's a twist, now all I'll do when watching the film is try to work out what it is instead of being surprised by it. Ah well.

    @3: That's what TIME magazine called it. It's the only book from this decade that made it to their 100 best novels from the past century and it's quite good. @4 & 5: It's not really a twist. There's no moment of revelation, it's just constantly alluded throughout and only acts as a backdrop to the drama. You can probably guess what it is right from the start. I thought the trailer was stunning.

    #6 is correct. The importance of the so-called 'twist' is in the characters' predicament regarding it. And if the film is like the book, it'll leave you stunned for days. 'Haunting' is overused these days, but never more apt here.

    Cant' wait to finish the book, can't wait to watch the movie!
  • twispious
    i read the book years ago,it was all and ok,a bit mundane,and the twist came,and then things got confusing and I lost interest.These 3 young actors make one helluva talented cast though,so lets see what they can do with the material.

    I just want to see what Spiderman can do!
  • I'm with #10 - every time I see Andrew Garfield now I just start thinking "show me you can kick ass, future Spider-Man!"
  • Paulo
    I'm sad that Andrew Garfield is Spider-man. Tommy is a meaty role and Spider-man might affect his chances of being recognized in the awards season.
