Here is the new movie poster for the upcoming John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy. We got a chance to see this film up at the Sundance Film Festival, and I thought it was great. Unlike most biopics, where you see the entire life of an individual in two hours, Nowhere Boy focuses on just Lennon's youth. This film is the origin story of one of the greatest musicians to have ever lived. If your a fan of Lennon or the Beatles then your gonna love this movie, not just because it's about a music legend, but because the film itself was made extremely well, and the acting was fantastic. The film stars Aaron Johnson who you most recently can see as the star in Kick-Ass, as fun as it was to watch him in Kick-Ass, Nowhere Boy really shows off his great acting skills. I suggest you read Abe Froman's great review of the film right here.
Imagine… John Lennon's childhood. Liverpool 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen year-old is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John: Mimi, the buttoned-up Aunt who raised him, and Julia, the prodigal mother. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into the new and exciting world of rock n' roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney. Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice - and an icon explodes into the world.
The movie is set to come out on October 8th 2010. Check out the new poster and let us know what ya think! I've also included the trailer for the film.
