Anna Karenina

We got our first look at Joe Wright's third period drama round with Keira Knightley back in February, and with Anna Karenina hitting theaters this fall, it's time for the marketing onslaught to being and get audiences interested in yet another costume drama.  This time it's the first poster for the film that takes a different approach than we've come to expect from these kind of films. But the result is a poster that makes the film look like it could easily be a Baz Luhrmann film, though the trailer doesn't blur that line in the same way. Can Joe Wright and Keira Knightley deliver another good period drama? Watch the trailer below!

Here's the first official trailer for Joe Wright's Anna Karenina, originally from MSN:

Here's the first poster from Joe Wright's Anna Karenina from Glamour (via The Playlist):

Anna Karenina - First Poster

The third collaboration of Keira Knightley with director Joe Wright, following both Pride & Prejudice and Atonement previously, is the epic love story Anna Karenina, adapted from Leo Tolstoy's classic novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love). The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community. Focus Features is sending the film to theaters in the UK on September 7th and right here in the US on November 9th. Interested?

      i don't care whether or not that's true, but how is your comment any different? do you have anything to say about the film featured in this post? you know, in this forum for *discussion*?

    If the music in the trailer is part of the score, Dario Marianelli may have another winner. Looks interesting.

      It's not. Track is titled "Nero" from album Archangel, by Two Steps From Hell.

    Not bad.

      certainly looks ravishing, and i like the look of Law in this. plus it's got Kelly MacDonald, so i know i've got some world class acting to distract me from The Pout. trailer's too long, though. do we need a full 2.5 / 3 minutes to give people an impression, now?
  • I like the blurry reflection of the characters in her intiails..
  • Hazedmind
    Joe Wright is up there with the best, I have no doubts that this will be amazing
  • out of normal
    I truly dislike Knightly but this looks good.
  • Amanda
    This film looks horrid. No thank you.
  • maytheforce
    One of the most amazing books ever written. Will the movie live up to it? I should hope so as Joe Wright is extremely talented.
  • Ehsan Davodi
    Yes another brilliant book based non-us author , Les Miserable & Anna Karenina , can we saw true face of Russian Life in this probably magnetic adaption? Does Joe Wright focus on theme of book ? He show us Jealousy? Carnal Desires? Hypocritics Liers? Can he bring fidelity theme in words of book to cinematic picture? Can he keep up dark , edgy , gritty tone of book? Will be Kaira Knightly Anna Karenina or will be Kaira Knightly? When such guys like Joe Wright breath and walk through corridors of broken mindless house of cinema I become really comfortable. Godspeed .
