Focus Features has released a fantastic trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of the classic novel by Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre. I love this trailer, and the film looks like it's going to be great. There's a point in the trailer when a cloud of black ash from a fireplace explodes at a young Jane, at which point the classic score from Susperia surprisingly kicks into high gear. I really wasn't expecting that, but it's there, and it set a great tone for the trailer.
I honestly didn't think I would be interested in seeing this movie. It's been such a long time since I've read the novel, but after watching this trailer, I'm looking forward to seeing the movie.
The film was directed by Cary Fukunaga, and it has a great cast of actors that include Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins ,Imogen Poots, Holliday Grainger and Tamsin Merchant.
Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. The isolated and imposing residence - and Mr. Rochester's coldness - have sorely tested the young woman's resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. As Jane reflects upon her past and recovers her natural curiosity, she will return to Mr. Rochester - and the terrible secret that he is hiding...
Jane Eyre is set to be released on March 11, 2011. Watch the trailer for the movie below and tell us what you think?
