Great Expectations

Just last week we got or first look at Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham with a couple of haunting photos from the forthcoming adaptation of Charles Dicken's classic novel Great Expectations from director Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Mona Lisa Smile). Now we have our first look at Jeremy Irvine (who will certainly break out in War Horse next month) as the main character of an orphan named Pip in a story that spans 30 years of his life as he encounters a peculiar cast of characters like an escaped convict named Magwitch (Ralph Fiennes) and a reclusive woman named Miss Havisham.

Here's the photo of Jeremy Irvine as Pip in Great Expectations courtesy of Empire:

Great Expectations First Look - Pip

This new adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel Great Expectations comes from director Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Mona Lisa Smile) working from a script by Rowan Joffe (The American). The story sees the orphaned Pip (Jeremy Irvine) given a fortune by a mysterious benefactor, who he suspects is the eccentric Miss Havisham (Helena Bonham Carter). But he's less concerned with who's behind the gift, administered by lawyer Jaggers (Robbie Coltrane) and more concerned with wooing Miss Havisham's man-eating ward Estella (Holliday Grainger). No release date has been set.

How soon will it be before any photos featuring Holliday Grainger as Estella will surface?

I am still waiting for some news on the first promotional photo of Holliday Grainger as Estella. Is it ever going to surface?

This is the third message concerning a promo image of Holliday Grainger as Estella. Why hasn't one been made available?

It has been a fortnight since I last enquired about this, and I have not received any news on a publicity still of Holliday Grainger as Estella being made available. Why is it taking so long to release an image of Miss Grainger in this role? She ought to have had one showing her as Estella, as soon as they officially unveiled the one featuring Jeremy Irvine. Instead, they released one showing David Walliams as Uncle Pumblechook, a lesser character than Miss Havisham's adopted daughter. Holliday is supposed to be one of the principal leads, and the publicity should reflect this.

I wish whoever is in charge of the visual side of publicity for this film would officially release a promo pic of Holliday Grainger as Estella. I have been waiting for one to appear for the past three months. Is an image of Miss Grainger as this Dickens character ever going to surface?

Joseph Taylor on Mar 24, 2012


I have been waiting for six months for an image of Holliday Grainger as Estella to be officially unveiled, but there is still no sign of it. Does anyone have access to any sort of image - either promotional or one form the film set - that shows Miss Grainger portraying Miss Havisham's adopted daughter? I need it for my website dedicated to her.

Why is it taking so long for a photo depicting Holliday Grainger as Estella to be officially released? Other key cast members have had images of them playing the roles they have been cast in, so why is there no picture of Miss Grainger as Miss Havisham's adopted daughter surfacing online? I realy would like an answer to this question, as I have been asking it for months.
