Tornado Tuesday: Grati’s Mock Movie Poster for “Into the Storm”, March 25, 2014 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #535)

We are all greatly anticipating the exquisitely talented British actor and storyteller BlackSkyRichardArmitageinCharonSetSep0412ToddGarner-sized
Richard Armitage’s
new film, Into the Storm.  Previously,  I had mused about this film and my earlier days of storm chasing with my hubby, as well as, over two years ago wondering what Mr. Armitage’s character’s name might be–it is Gary Morris (image of Richard Armitage as Gary Morris from a production still tweeted by Producer Todd Garner, right).

Monday, I heard about the Into the Storm movie’s promotions beginning and I played around with some graphics–I get amusingly sidetracked that way sometimes.  I can’t draw to save my soul, that’s why I have Photoshop. Snap!

So here is a mock movie poster that I made for “Into the Storm” (I tweaked the poster.):

Update March 25, 2014 (7:43pm):
Thank you to “Into the Storm” screenwriter John Swetnam for favoriting my tweet with my mock movie poster above. Here is the screen capture of Mr. Swetnam’s tweet:
Grati:  I am thrilled beyond words that Mr. Swetnam liked my mock movie poster.  *THUD*

And thanks to Perry at her Armitage Agonistes blog for pointing me to the recent USAToday online article about “Into the Storm”:


P.S.  I live in the Midwest where tornadoes  occur. They devastate all in their path–homes, livelihoods, and lives.  I wrote about a recent near miss last Fall that was very scary–and we knew someone who had lost their apartment home but somehow got out alive.

So I have always thought that one of the best ways to market this film–so as not to appear to be exploiting other peoples’ tragedies–would be to partner with disaster preparedness organizations with regard to tornadoes, in order to promote tornado safety awareness before that season started–since the film won’t be released until August, well into Tornado Season.

And that is just what the filmmakers are doing by creating a into-the-storm-tornado-disaster-kit_Mar2415WarnerBrotherstornado preparedness kit (see image right) that has some helpful disaster items in it–such as first aid supplies, food, a light stick, etc.  Bravo to Warner Brothers Marketing Department!  Now how do I obtain one of those kits? Ha!


About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

  2. Kitty says:

    The wind in RA’s shirt makes his arm look weirdly long.

    So right about the devastation of tornadoes. We’ve had many come through our community. It proves how powerless we are against nature.


    • Hi Kitty,
      I’m guessing that you mean the image–when you follow the USAToday link–where they are underground or in a culvert and RA’s arm is stretched out surrounding Sarah Wayne Callies. And oh my yes! That right arm looks long and strong with his rippling muscles. Sighhh! Weird? Maybe it is his billowing shirt behind him, giving the perception of extra length?
      And yes, our planet Earth home has fearsome weather systems!
      Thanks for visiting and commenting! Cheers! Grati ;->
