Watch: Full US Trailer for Mike Newell's 'Great Expectations' Movie
"Do you want me to deceive you?!" Main Street Films has released the official US trailer for Mike Newell's latest take on adapting Charles Dickens' classic story Great Expectations, starring quite a cast including Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Sally Hawkins and Jason Flemyng, plus Jeremy Irvine & Holliday Grainger as Pip & Estella. Nearly a year ago we posted the first trailer for this adaptation, since the film hit UK theaters in late 2012 and is just now making its way to US theaters an entire year later. As expected, this trailer features the turbulent love story perpetrated by Miss Havisham, so have at it if Dickens is your thing.
Here's the official US release trailer for Mike Newell's Great Expectations, originally from Deadline:
