Some new Australia photos have come by way of a Vogue photoshoot, shot by the legendary Annie Leibovitz -- and they are just the most gorgeous thing outside of the actual film. Normally, I wouldn't post a Vogue item as they hardly need a write-up, but as news on this film is rather scarce, I think it deserves a mention. Plus, everything about this film (even when by way of Leibovitz) is so ridiculously beautiful that I can't resist sharing what I find.

The photos accompany a Nicole Kidman interview about the film which is full of interesting tidbits. There are no spoilers for the wary, just a few more plot and character details. This is one of my most anticipated films of the year -- and as Christopher mentioned earlier, one that is already generating some Oscar buzz for Mandy Walker's cinematography. I'm nominating it for costumes as well -- such crisp lines!

Australia opens November 14th, 2008.
