‘You Can’t Ask Why About Love,’ According to the New Anna Karenina Poster

EDIT: Check out episode #16 Anna’s Love is a Battlefield where we discuss the novel and episode #19 All the World’s a Stage where we discuss the film.

The new adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina released a new poster in anticipation of it’s release on September 7th in the UK and Nov 9 in the US. A few weeks ago, the first poster and trailer were released with a decidedly glitzy tone. The new poster seems to be stepping away from the grand-ness of the first, but keeping that classic period film feel while declaring, ‘you can’t ask why about love.’

With the title character standing solo center stage and the train baring down on her in the background, this poster reminds me much more of the images that come into my own head when Anna Karenina is mentioned.

What do you think of the new poster? And the new tagline?
