Making its world première at TIFF in September, we have the first trailer to Mike Newell‘s Great Expectations starring Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Jason Flemyng, Jeremy Irvine, Ewen Bremner & Sally Hawkins.
About the Film
An outstanding roster of British acting talent bring Charles Dickens’ universe to life in this magnificent new screen version of the classic novel from director Mike Newell (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Mona Lisa Smile, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Love in the Time of Cholera, Prince of Persia).
The story involves a humble orphan, played by Jeremy Irvine, who suddenly becomes a gentleman with the help of an unknown benefactor. The screenplay, adapted from Charles Dickens’ classic novel, was written by David Nicholls, author of the book One Day and its adaptation, as well as Starter for 10 and When Did You Last See Your Father?.
This will première at the Toronto Film Fest next month, but doesn’t have a US release yet.
