Final Poster Debut for Nora Ephron's Julie and Julia
There's not much else worth looking at tonight, so why don't you check out this final poster for Julie & Julia, the new summer dramedy from Nora Ephron starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. You've probably seen the trailer - but if not, it's online and ready to watch. Thanks to Sony for debuting this on their official Twitter. This is probably not something most guys out there will really care about, but it's the perfect summer alternative for your significant other. There's one name not mentioned on this poster - and that's Chris Messina, the very talent and highly underrated New York actor, who plays Amy Adam's husband.
Anyway, I'll admit I'll probably see this once at least this summer, but that's just to see how it is. Enjoy!
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?

I'm a guy. In my late 20's. I enjoy most of the content featured on FS. I also cook a lot. I have been eating out of my mother's first edition of Mastering The Art I (the book from the film) for a few years now. I have enjoyed cooking films in the past, but I'm not totally insane to see this (nor is my wife - she doesn't cook), but I added it to my Netflix queue. With Meryl and Amy Adams I can't imagine it will be _bad_.

Also, after seeing the trailer again, Meryl Streep performance is almost frighteningly accurate. "... Never apologize."

the coloring on Meryl Streep doesn't translate well to this internet poster. She's all magenta-y here, which is not good. Overall a great cute poster with a great Amy Adams face to shop into sexual poses, but the color needs to be fixed for further web-ready editions.

Meh, I don't mind cooking, but something about Meryl Streep's face scares me. Actually, I'm definitely going to watch this for one reason and one reason only. Amy Adams...(drool)

Well Im one of those guys who actually really wants to see this, Meryl Streep is awesome,and Amy Adams is beautiful and a great actress. Looks like a fun movie.

I enjoyed No Reservations and Ratatouille so it's definitely possible to pull a male who doesn't care about cooking into a chef based film...a good story is a good story.

@6 You sound like you're plugging Fox's new reality show... The Apprentice: Blogger Edition

Don't get me wrong, I'm very excited to see an encore with Streep and Adams (I aslo think Ephron owes us for Bewitched), but could the studio have picked a less original concept for a poster? I mean this worked great on Something's Gotta Give, but even Nancy Meyers couldn't make lightning strike twice (The Holiday featured the same design). Is it me or is every romantic comedy featuring two top-billed stars have no future except the one above?

Every mainstream ROMCOM has the same posters as well as about every cute indie flick.

Alex - I didn't take offense at what you wrote, don't worry. I was just speaking for myself, a guy. I agree that most guys I know wouldn't have even clicked on the post.

They should've casted Philip Seymour Hoffman! Amy looks so young with her short hair.
