Yesterday, a long trailer for the new adaptation of Jane Eyre was released. It promises plenty of Gothic chills and thrills to offset the legendary practicality of its heroine, played by Mia Wasikowska (aka Alice in Wonderland). Love that she is actually plain-looking. The casting all around is terrific: X-Men villain Michael Fassbender looks like the best Mr. Rochester since Timothy Dalton, and Judi Dench plays the housekeeper (and dons a Yorkshire accent).
Director Cary Fukunaga doesn’t hold back on the darker aspects of the story, portraying Jane’s lonely, abusive upbringing in graphic detail.
What do you think of the trailer? Will you see the movie when it comes out in March?
