Great Expectations Trailer Arrives
Pip pip!

We know that there are one or two of you out there who have been eagerly awaiting anything from Mike Newell’s new cinematic take on Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations. Today is your lucky day as – provided you don’t mind German subtitles – the trailer has arrived online and can be seen below.

This latest version of the classic tale of jealousy, hatred, love, devotion, suffering, schemes, social climbing and tragedy boasts a solid cast that includes Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Robbie Coltrane, Jeremy Irvine, Sally Hawkins, Jason Flemyng and Holliday Granger.

The big challenge will be to bring something truly fresh to a story that has been filmed several times before, once by David Lean and most recently by the BBC, with Gillian Anderson in the Miss Haversham role now inhabited by Carter. It certainly looks lavish, but we’ll wait and see what Newell and writer David Nicholls have done to the Dickens.

It’ll be out on November 30 here, but will get its world premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival.

RE: Spoliers much?
LOL at the trailer. Its awful. Trailers are supposed to sell the movie. This one doesn't. The music they use is all wrong. Seems like this adaptation is going to be more fast paced than we are used to. I won't judge the film until it comes out as i only think thats fair. But the they need to bring out a new trailer nearer to the film, as this one IMO won't help with the marketing. Agreed with the comments that the trailer tells the whole story. Weird... More

Spoliers much?
Checked out the trailer on youtube, and it is awfully put together. Also, it contains about a gazillion spoilers for anyone who hasn't read the book. Not impressed. More
