Miramax has finally released cover art and pre-order availability for Blindness, a film I've yet to see but that others here at Quiet Earth have (review here). The story is based on Nobel prize winnering author,José Saramago's, novel of the same name.

It begins in a flash, as one man is instantaneously struck blind while driving home from work, his whole world suddenly turned to an eerie, milky haze. One by one, each person he encounters, his wife, his doctor, even the seemingly good Samaritan who gives him a lift home will in due course suffer the same unsettling fate. As the contagion spreads, and panic and paranoia set in across the city, the newly blind victims of the "White Sickness" are rounded up and quarantined within a crumbling, abandoned mental asylum, where all semblance of ordinary life begins to break down. But inside the quarantined hospital, there is one secret eyewitness: one woman who has not been affected but has pretended she is blind in order to stay beside her beloved husband.

yikes... This cover seems so wrong! I don't think the designer saw it either.
