Well, the new poster for Julie Taymor’s Beatles musical “Across the Universe” has hit the interweb, and while it is quite striking, I think we’re getting some false advertising here. Instead of the trippy, “Hair”-esque musical showcase I’ve seen in the trailers, this is a couple of elves floating in a strawberry heart in space. Like “Lord of the Rings” meets “Jason X” meets those Fruit of the Loom commercials with the guys in the fruit suits…which would be awesome. Footnote: Anyone want to start a band called The Fruit Suits? I’ll play the tambourine!
