First Beautiful Poster for Cary Fukunaga's New 'Jane Eyre' Arrives

Now this is how you create a great poster! Focus Features has just unveiled a teaser poster on Facebook (via The Playlist) for Sin Nombre director Cary Fukunaga's new take on the Charlotte Brontë classic Jane Eyre. We've been hearing about this adaptation for a while, as Fukunaga is focusing "on the more gothic elements of the classic 19th century story." Starring in the lead is the immensely talented and cute-as-a-button Mia Wasikowska, seen above (in an early promo photo) and below on the poster as the titular Jane Eyre. This is only an early teaser poster, as we've still got a ways to go before this Jane Eyre hits theaters next March.
Based on Charlotte Brontë's classic novel, Fukunaga's new romantic drama stars Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) in the lead roles. In the story, Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. The isolated and imposing residence, and 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. Focus Features is releasing on March 11th, 2011.
meh, looks okay.

I think Mia Wasikowska is a potential scene stealer. And because of that, I see a bright future in this Aussie. She's so versitile when acting whether is a U.S accent for In Treatment, a Polish accent for Defiance or a british accent for Alice, this girl can act!

#6: Agree completely. She's the only reason I'll be seeing this and why I finally read the book earlier this year. It's got a great cast and director, so hopefully the film will be as good as advertised.

#10 It probably won't get that much advertising as such! I read somewhere it may be one of those limied releases. That said March 2011 seems to have 2 potentially good movies: Jane Eyre, featuring the Australian beauty and Paul, the latest from Pegg & Frost.

Yes, it will be in limited release come March. But hopefully it'll get the kind of exposure Joe Wright's Pride and Prejudice did (after all, these are famous stories with quite a following) and expand its reach from thereon out.
