The Telegraph has premiered the first trailer for Brideshead Revisited, which you can see here.

As you'd imagine, it all looks terribly classy and British and boasts a stellar cast of UK talent, including Emma Thompson, Matthew Goode, Hayley Atwell, Ben Whishaw and Michael Gambon. Based on Evelyn Waugh's classic novel, the story tells of Charles Ryder, a man who goes to stay at the grand Brideshead Castle during World War II and enters into a tangled relationship with the family that lives there.

Re: Brideshead Revisited Trailer Online
The NY Times review for Brideshead Revisited had this description for Matthew Goode: "Mr. Goode shows all the charisma of a stalk of boiled asparagus molded into the likeness of Jeremy Irons". Ouch. That feeds into my concerns over his casting as Ozymandias in Watchmen. He just doesn't seem to have a particularly impressive presence on screen.
