Patty is right, I just finished a layout using that typeface here at work and it matches up!

WTH! What does Franklin Gothic have to do with this story? Sheesh. Talk about mis-cast.

Wagner would cringe. Some stories call for blackletter, eh Tiff?

Franklin Gothic & other bold sans (Brokeback Mountain, Firewall, Syriana) seem to be vying with Trajan as font du jour on the movie posters these days, altho Trajan is putting up a good fight (Geisha, Tristram Shandy, Final Destination).

That said, I agree it's all wrong for Tristan & Isolde.
