Julie Taymor, best known for her films Frida and Across the Universe, recently announced the premiere date of her latest Broadway project, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, and now we get a poster to her latest film as well.

The Tempset is based upon William Shakespeare’s final play of the same name, and stars Helen Mirren, Russell Brand, Chris Cooper, Alan Cumming, Djimon Honsou, Felicity Jones, Alfred Molina, David Strathairn and Ben Whishaw. Mirren plays Prospera (in a role that is traditionally male), a sorceress who rules over a magical island and its shipwrecked captives.
