Touchstone Pictures has debuted the first poster for "The Tempest" via Yahoo! Movies, unraveling more characters from the film. Beside capturing Helen Mirren's Prospera who has been seen before, the one-sheet also gives a look at Djimon Hounsou's Caliban and another wicked character ablaze with silver.

Based on Shakespeare's play, the upcoming film will follow Prospera, who reigns over the magical island, her daughter Miranda and a shipwrecked crew full of Prospera's enemies. The story is said to mix romance with fraternal politics and the supernatural.

Joining Helen Mirren and Djimon Hounsou as cast members are Russell Brand, Alfred Molina, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, Alan Cumming, Ben Wishaw, David Strathairn and many others. Julie Taymor serves as director as well as scriptwriter for the drama movie, which is due December 10 in the U.S.
