'Age of Adaline' Posters Cleverly Take Blake Lively Through Time

Nowadays, character posters for films are a little excessive. We'll feature them every now and then when there's a huge roster of characters for something like The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we normally try to steer clear otherwise, and studios have started to do the same more recently. However, a batch of character posters for The Age of Adaline just surfaced, and while that might seem ridiculous for a romance, they've done it in a clever way. Each poster shows Blake Lively, who doesn't age in the film, in a different photo from each decade of her life, beginning in the 1920s and going all the way through the current year 2015.
Here's the time-spanning character posters for The Age of Adaline straight from Lionsgate:
You can still watch the most recent trailer for The Age of Adaline right here.
Following a near-fatal accident one icy night, a 29-year-old woman named Adaline (Blake Lively) stops aging. With all of her contemporaries, friends and lovers dying off, Adaline becomes a beautiful recluse — afraid of getting hurt by more love and loss. She keeps her condition a secret throughout the 20th century until she meets a man (Michiel Huisman) who may change her life. Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker also star in The Age of Adaline, directed by Lee Toland Krieger (Celese and Jesse Forever) and written by newcomer Salvador Paskowitz and J. Mills Goodloe (The Best of Me). Lionsgate releases the film on April 24th.
HIGHLANDER and FOREVER jokes aside, this does look interesting, and so do these posters.

Great posters.. tho 1996 doesn't need to be aged with cracks.

It's an interesting concept - especially the hint in the trailer that she finally comes back into the world of the living, only to discover her love is the son/grandson of one of her earlier loves she left b/c she wasn't aging. I'm not big on the actress, but I'll probably manage to snag a date to it.

....smell that? Smells like a shitty rip-off THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON.

Nah, more like 'The Man on Earth,' which came before 'Button.' (Saw the the former recently and it was awful and overrated imo, though.)
