‘Jane Eyre’ trailer

Posted by · 4:21 pm · November 9th, 2010

Hot on the heels of the lovely poster unveiled yesterday, we now have a trailer for Focus Features’ spring release “Jane Eyre.” The assembly of the trailer is a touch overegged, though I’m reserving judgment — at the very least, cinematographer Adriano Goldman seems to be having the same fun with light and weather that he did in the sunnier climes of Cary Fukunaga’s debut “Sin Nombre.” Meanwhile, I get the feeling that we can pencil in Michael O’Connor (a recent Oscar winner for “The Duchess”) as a repeat Best Costume Design nominee over 14 months from now. Click on the image to check out the trailer at Yahoo! Movies, or watch the embed after the cut.

    This is going to be wonderful. Although I got my Fassbender groove on in full fassy force… one can’t deny Toby Stephen’s Mr. Rochester in the 2006 version.

    I didn’t realize this was Cary Fukunaga. Consider me having gone from mild passing interest to full fledged opening night interest.

    I can’t wait to watch this!

    Fassbender looks impressive (acting-wise, as well) but Mia seemed a little like she was playing Alice again. At least that’s what I got. I loved her in The Kids… and I hope I love her in this as well.

    Always a pleasure to see and hear La Dench!

    Does anyone know who has been cast as The Person We’re Not Supposed To Know About?

    Meh. Jane Eyre has been rehashed so many times it’s difficult to get excited. This one doesn’t seem to offer anything that others haven’t, judging by the trailer. Frankly, it looks considerably duller and more self-important. A lot of scenery chewing I imagine.

    Heathers for 89. Easily one of the most quotable movies of all time and fantastic work from Winona Ryder. It manages to be razor sharp satirical, with general heft of it’s own and doesn’t end up looking smug.

    90, Days of Being Wild. It’s top-tier Wong Kar-Wai but it’s fascinating to see where so many of his trademark themes and stylization first really started making strides.

    Oh dear I had two tabs open for In Contention and posted this is the wrong thread! Apologies.

    Dude they had me at the moment they played the beginning of the Goblin’s score for Suspiria. I am so there. Finally a good movie to look forward to that will be coming out in the Spring! Why can’t every year spread the wealth a little bit?

    Suspiria score? Amature editing, Text on screen instead of voice work? What? Did they give this to a youtube fan made movie trailer editor? Never the less it’s the names that I see attached that have my expectations up tremendously.

    The trailer itself is hardly revolutionary, but ooh boy am I hankering for a good British period piece. “Pride & Prejudice” and “Atonement” seem so long ago! Plus… that cast! Wow. Wasikowska/Fassbender/Dench/Bell is a formidable combo any day of the week.

    I still don’t know why Focus are releasing it in March though. Anyone??

    The trailer left me a bit cold, but as a fan of the book I’m really looking forward to this!

    This looks brilliant!!
    Agreed with Glenn – too long since some really good period brit drama.
    Just a little bit worried about Mia – she’s always struck me as a bit, well, plain…

    Dooby: If you’re referring to her physical appearance, Jane is hardly meant to be a glamazon.

    Nick: They seem to be keeping that information well under wraps. I’m holding out hope for Fiona Shaw.

    I think this looks very good. The cinematography jumps out as a strong suit to me.
    And as far as Fassbender being ‘too’ handsome for the role, I don’t see it.

    OK, I critisized the poster but this actually looks pretty interesting. Moreover, the things I said earlier don’t seem to apply.

    I will admit to liking the second of the trailer more than the first, however.

    The trailer itself is rubbish, but the film looks fantastic. I was a big fan of “Sin Nombre”, and am looking very much forward to this!

    The score sounds promising.

    Focus needs to do themselves a favor and either push it forward to a limited December release or push it back to late Fall/early Winter 2011. The audience for prestige English literature film is nowhere near as great in the middle of March (!?!?).

    The audience is there all year round, Peter.

    The film is terrific. Though I suspect that we’ll be seeing this populate Guy’s First-Half FYC when the time comes.
