It's seems like an age ago that Hilary Swank was hoovering up Oscars like some kind of thespianic Dyson, but Amelia, the Swank-starring biopic of legendary aviator Amelia Earhart, could be just the kind of Academy bait to see her back at the Kodak Theatre next year for a crack at her third gold statute.
Here she is as Earhart in full flying garb - minus the floppy-eared hat and goggles - on the movie's new promo poster. It's all elegantly understated, although at first glance it does look like the aviation pioneer is attempting to circumnavigate the globe in an Airfix model (although that could be just us). Co-starring with Swank in Amelia are Ewan McGregor (as Earhart's great love and dad of Gore, Gene Vidal) and Christopher Eccleston, as well as Richard Gere as Earhart's husband and promoter, George Putnam.
Amelia is out in the UK on November 13.
