The poster is visually interesting, thoughtful, and a bit moving. Basically, it’s everything the last poster wasn’t. If this is the type of work we can expect from the final product, then consider me sold.
Hit the jump to check out the poster. The film, which stars Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart and picked up four Spirit Award nominations today, is slated for limited release on December 17th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Rabbit Hole:
RABBIT HOLE is a vivid, hopeful, honest and unexpectedly witty portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of all situations. Becca and Howie Corbett (NICOLE KIDMAN and AARON ECKHART) are returning to their everyday existence in the wake of a shocking, sudden loss. Just eight months ago, they were a happy suburban family with everything they wanted. Now, they are caught in a maze of memory, longing, guilt, recrimination, sarcasm and tightly controlled rage from which they cannot escape. While Becca finds pain in the familiar, Howie finds comfort. The shifts come in abrupt, unforeseen moments. Becca hesitantly opens up to her opinionated, loving mother (DIANNE WIEST) and secretly reaches out to the teenager involved in the accident that changed everything (MILES TELLER); while Howie lashes out and imagines solace with another woman (SANDRA OH). Yet, as off track as they are, the couple keeps trying to find their way back to a life that still holds the potential for beauty, laughter and happiness. The resulting journey is an intimate glimpse into two people learning to re-engage with each other and a world that has been tilted off its axis.

When it was reported this past August that Michael Douglas was suffering from throat cancer, concerns arose not just for his health but for the future of the long-in-development Liberace biopic. Douglas was to play the famous musician with Steven Soderbergh directing and Matt Damon co-starring. However, a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter informs us that not only is Douglas recovering from his treatment, but he still has Liberace in his sights. Douglas tells THR, “I’ve got a bunch of tapes of performances. I’m thinking; I’m a blank slate. Everything shows me he was a lovely man; I just want to reconfirm that.” THR also reports that shooting is scheduled to begin in May or June of next year, which confirms Damon’s claim earlier this year that he was planning to shoot the film next summer. Damon will play Liberace’s lover Scott Thorson.
While I’m happy that Liberace is moving forward, I’m even happier that Douglas is feeling healthy enough to start working again and hopefully we can look forward to more performances from him.
