Lovely Bones International Poster
Exclusive look at the latest artwork

10 December 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Its release date is rapidly approaching, but there's still time for one more poster for The Lovely Bones, Peter Jackson's adaptation of Alice Sebold's book. And yes, that sunset looks remarkably like Saoirse Ronan. And no, we're not sure if that means shepherd's delight or shepherd's warning in the field of meteorological-fortune-telling-based-on-sky-colouring.

As you no doubt already know, this is the story of a 14 year-old girl called Susie Salmon (Ronan), murdered and left to watch over her family from heaven as they struggle to deal with her loss. Perhaps surprisingly given that plot summary, it's not a total downer.

The film has, of course, already premiered in London, and gets a limited US release from December 11 (can you say "Oscar qualification?") but isn't released until January 15 in the US and January 29 here in the UK.

By all accounts they've completely sanitised the murder - a big part of what gives the book its haunting power - in order to get a lower rating. And Tucci is 49 and looks it whereas his character in the book is mid 30s. Shame on you PJ! More
