After the initial teaser trailer arrived last year, a full theatrical trailer for the period romance Far from the Madding Crowd, based on Thomas Hardy's classic novel of the same name, has arrived. Carey Mulligan leads the film as Bathsheba Everdene, a young woman who attracts many different suitors, making her life thoroughly complicated. Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge and Michael Sheen all star in the film along with Juno Temple. This one has been in the can for awhile, and it's not clear why there's been a delay in releasing since it looks fantastic, but maybe there were some post-production woes. Watch below!
Here's the new trailer for Thomas Vinterberg's Far from the Madding Crowd from Yahoo:

Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far From the Madding Crowd is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; Frank Troy (Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba's choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance. This version of Far From the Madding Crowd is directed by Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg (The Celebration, Dear Wendy, Submarino) from a script by David Nicholls. Fox Searchlight releases the film in limited theaters May 1st.
