Hotly tipped as a strong contender in the coming Oscar race, Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina was released in the UK last month to wide critical acclaim – you can read our own review here.

Keira Knightley takes the lead as the eponymous Anna Karenina, alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Jude Law as the leading trio.

We saw over 100 new images from the film last month, and now Yahoo Movies have debuted eight beautiful new posters, all surrounding the theme of love.

“The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with director Joe Wright, following the award-winning box office successes “Pride & Prejudice” and “Atonement,” is the epic love story “Anna Karenina,” adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (“Shakespeare in Love”). The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.”

Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love) has penned the script from which Wright directs, adapting the classic original novel by Leo Tolstoy, with Matthew Macfadyen, Olivia Williams, Kelly Macdonald, Emily Watson, Alicia Vikander, Domhnall Gleeson, and Holliday Grainger completing the cast brilliantly.

Anna Karenina is currently still playing in a number of theatres across the UK, and will be released in the US on 16th November, with Focus Features giving it a prime position for an awards campaign in the following months. For now, here are the beautiful new posters, each bearing a wonderful quotation from Tolstoy, and as usual, you can click to enlarge.
