We just saw the movie poster and now the trailer is out.Here's a look at Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender as Jane and Rochester...More information on JANE EYRE
Very good trailer, thanks a lot! Finally! we can see Mr. Rochester! what a delight, what pleasure!Pleasure that is also present with this sublime Jane Eyre's story by Charlotte Bronte.
It looks so good! ...and Mr Rochester looks just as he ought!
Again, as Jane Eyre is one of my most favorite novels, I cannot say that I approve of their choice in actors for the two lead roles. Dame Judy Dench looks to make a grand Mrs. Fairfax, though. This may be an enjoyable film on its own. However, I cannot say, from what I have seen thus far, that it will be a faithful rendition of the story. Not to be a little black cloud. I only hope to be proven wrong.
So excited for this movie! Jane Eyre is my favorite book and I cannot wait to see it on the big screen. Thank you for posting the trailer!
SOOOO excited for this!! Thank you for this and your website! I never comment, but visit your blog each day! Thanks for all the info! :D
This is indeed an excellent trailer! I wasn't very interested in this adaptation at all before but now my interest is definitely piqued! This could turn out to be a very good adaptation after all! :)
Glad to share the trailer, I was surprised that they released it already!Cjean, thanks for visiting!
The biggest shock is that Mia will be playing Jane. I think she makes a great Jane. Can't wait to watch this!
I. FREAKIN'. LOVE. YOU!!!!!!!And if I wasn't in the office I'd be running around the house shouting "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!" at the top of my lungs.K well that's my day made. Week. Month. Either of those will do! <3
I AM running around my house screaming ahhhhh!!! Thank you for posting! This looks INCREDIBLE!
Well ...it looks great! But I'll miss my Mr Rochester/Stephens!
@Renee why do you say this version won't be a faithful rendition? Nearly every line from the trailer comes from the original text. Trailers are often edited in misleading ways (like in this case using footage of Jane's flight from Thornfield to make it seem like she actually ARRIVED there as some kind of refugee rather than as a hired governess.) The directors rarely have a say in what the trailers show.That being said, I'm actually quite impressed with this! I'm a huge fan of the novel, and I think they really captured the feel of the book, a strange mix of gothic, melencholic, mysterious, passionate...) I was extremely leery of the casting of Mia after seeing Alice, but no longer. And while I did love the 2006 version, I'm not married to it. So, yeah, I'm totally ready for this. When does it come out?
While I agree that the dialogue is almost word for word, it is the overly passionate point of view the director has taken. In today's world, subtlety is a foreign concept. So, sadly, as I see it, the love feels too passionate for decorum of the time (I speak of the time before the final outcome [don't want to ruin the ending for anyone that hasn't read it! *^_^*]), too violent (I don't ever remember Jane slapping Edward; if I am wrong, please correct me) and too modern spooky (Granted, the events leading up to what Jane is forced to learn are spooky, but they feel like scenes from "the Ring" in the trailer.)These are my qualms. I am glad to hear anyone's thoughts on them. Thanks! *^_^*
@Renee Hmmm, interesting. Well for one thing [SPOILER] the "slap" snippet I thought was Bertha, not Jane. You only see the woman from behind for a split second, and she is violent and unkempt... so that's the impression I got. Also, it's interesting to hear you call it overly passionate, because I always thought of JE as one of the most passionate books I've read. I always thought that this ridiculously intense passion between the two characters was kind of what has made the story so hard to portray credibly on screen. But I guess it really does boil down to interpretations and preference.
Ah! Of course! Bertha! There I go assuming, again. But you make a good point, the passion in the book is a difficult thing to portray on the screen. I still believe, though, that the "in-your-face" sort of turn films have made leave little to the imagination. Then again, if we, as a modern culture didn't need every little thing laid out nicely for us to plainly see, the cleverly hidden passions of the novel would be lost in translation. Jane, to the audience, would seem utterly indifferent to Edward. Edward would seem the uncaring, overbearing employer. You make a good point, Scary Mary.
This latest Jane Eyre was a bore -- it was the first time I almost walked out of a movie. If you want to see a much better telling of Bronte's classic, see the version with Ciaran Hinds and Samantha Morton as Mr. Rochester and Jane. Hinds' Rochester is moody, passionate, mischievous - everything you expect from the man.
My favorite rendition is the Charlotte Gainsburg Jane! I'll have to look for the version of which you write, Tracy.
I HAVE RETIRED FROM THE BLOG AND WILL NO LONGER BE DOING UPDATES. THANKS!
