Official UK poster and trailer for Mr Turner

Entertainment One UK has shared with us the official UK poster and trailer for Mike Leigh’s MR. TURNER, released in UK cinemas October 31.

MR. TURNER is a dramatic biopic of influential British painter J.M.W. Turner, starring Timothy Spall as the title role, Lesley Manville, Marion Bailey, Dorothy Atkinson and Paul Jesson.

MR. TURNER explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851).
Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies.
Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.
