My immediate response: wow, I really like this poster. It evokes some sort of deep emotion within me just looking at it, the perfect embrace of this couple and that kiss. Before this week, I knew nothing about this. I remember writing a few times about the new film from the Sopranos creator, David Chase, but beyond that I didn't know the title or what the heck it was even about (or who is even in it). It's called Not Fade Away and stars Bella Heathcote and John Magaro as two young lovers in the 1960s. The first poster has arrived (via Awards Daily) in advance of its film festival premieres and it's worth seeing in full below.
The first feature film written & directed by David Chase since finishing up "Sopranos", Not Fade Away is set in suburban New Jersey the 1960s, about a group of friends who form a rock band and try to make it big. Bella Heathcote and newcomer John Magaro star, along with James Gandolfini, Brad Garrett, Christopher McDonald, Isiah Whitlock Jr. and Lisa Lampanelli. The film is premiering at the New York Film Festival and Austin Film Festivals this fall, where we expect to hear some good buzz. Paramount will be releasing Not Fade Away in limited theaters starting December 21st. We'll keep an eye out. First impressions?
