Garth @ Dark Horizons scored a look at some early promotional work for the upcoming, Dorian Gray. In the film, based on the Oscar Wilde story, Ben Barnes (Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian)’ tells the story of a strikingly beautiful young man named Dorian who arrives in Victorian London and is swept into a social whirlwind by the charismatic Henry Wotton (Colin Firth), who introduces Dorian to the hedonistic pleasures of the city.
When a portrait of Dorian is unveiled, such is its beauty that he makes a pledge: he would give anything to stay as he is in the picture – even his soul. “Dorian Gray” examines the destructive power of beauty, the blind pursuit of pleasure and the darkness that can result. The film was directed by Oliver Parker (An Ideal Husband, The Importance Of Being Earnest), and written by newcomer Toby Finlay hits UK cinemas on September 11th.
