Jane Eyre Movie Trailer


And in the spirit of the Jane giveaway we've got going on, here is the trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of Jane Eyre. It stars Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender and is set to release March 11th here in the U.S. I think it looks perfectly awesome and I'm so excited I can hardly wait. They've certainly adapted this story a number of times over the years and people tend to have definite opinions about their favorite version. Me, I get a little thrill with every one as it's just one of my favorite stories ever. So, who's going to go see it?

  1. So I was about to complain about how we don't need ANOTHER version, but that looks really, really good. :) The actress playing Jane seems excellent.

    My main problem with movie versions of JE are that they are too short. You really lose stuff when it's all condensed into a couple of hours.

    My favourite version is still the old BBC adaptation - a mini-series - from at least 25 years ago. Timothy Dalton as Rochester (*swoon*) and Zelah Clarke as Jane. To this day, I think she's the best Jane ever. God, I'm really showing my age here. I saw it when it was first on TV, I was about 10... Heh. ;)

    Thanks for sharing. Also, if you're interested in seeing Dalton and Clarke, here's a clip. Listen to the lovely music!

  2. I can't wait for this! I saw the PBS/BBC version they did a few years ago and it was okay, but I think Fassbender is going to be a great Rochester. Okay, maybe he's a little too good-looking but I'm not complaining!

  3. I saw this trailer last night and was all, "Oooh, I'm in!" I love Jane Eyre so much as a story. And I do love Mia Wasikowska. She's a really talented actress. Not to mention my deep and abiding love of costume drama.

    I'm SO in!

  7. I'm not sure how I feel about the actor playing Mr. Rochester but Mia looks like she'll pull of Jane Eyre gracefully. She certainly has that direct stare that Mr. Rochester likes, lol.

    I watched the trailer earlier today and I think it looks very interesting. I'm definitely going to see it. You know I'm a big fan of the most recent Masterpiece Theatre version. I loved Toby Stephens as Rochester and thought Ruth Wilson was a perfect Jane.

    This version looks like it's a bit more spooky than the others...it look's good, but I think the Masterpiece version is going to be hard to beat.

  13. Oh.Em.Gee. They are making a Jane Eyre movie?! I liked the old one with William Hurt but I practically squeed out loud when I saw this trailer.

  14. Looks so good! Just like I imagined everything when I read the book. Except Mr, Rochester was uglier in my head haha

  18. Not sure I liked the actress in ALICE IN WONDERLAND, but I think she could be a better Jane than Alice. Looking forward to it.

  21. So excited to see "Jane Eyre" return to the big screen! I think that Mia Wasikowska will make a good Jane. Thanks for posting this trailer!

  22. The Jane Eyre 2006 DVD is my favorite adaptation. Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens was spectacular in that version. It would be hard topping that but I'm looking forward to watching the 2011 film nonetheless. :)

Bibliocrack Review | Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I haven't wanted to talk about this. With  anyone.  But I think I probably need to. That like Georgina, I need to use my words to break the curse. I think that like Sam, I need to believe in my cure. So I'm going to talk about it here, and maybe you can help. Since pandemic type things got real in my neck of the woods, I haven't been able to read. I haven't been able to  reread . This has (and I am not exaggerating) never happened to me before  in my life.  I know it happens frequently to most everyone. And I have certainly always been a mood reader. It's not in any way uncommon for me to drift from book to book, from shelf to shelf in my library, until I land upon the right thing. But that drifting tends to occur over the course of a few hours. Not ever does it occur over the course of a few days or, God forbid, weeks.  I feel like I'm losing my mind. And, yes, I am fully aware of where this problem likely rates on the triviality scale in the current scheme of

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q  when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion — a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1   a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes.  Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record,  both a

Bibliocrack Review | Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Since I thought I'd start with the two most egregious reviewing gaps, you get Wayward Son next. I hope this is agreeable to all and sundry. And let's just agree not to pull any punches, shall we? I'll start by admitting that this book wrecked my life. To be clear, I am not complaining. It's just that it had been a long time, yeah? A long time since  Carry On came out. Just such a very long time since I'd been in the company of these two. And their crew. And I thought I was ready. Don't I always? Must remember to learn from past mistakes. But more than that, I wasn't thinking about the fact that of course Rainbow Rowell would create nothing less than the sequel that would naturally follow the events at the end of Carry On. Which is to say a sequel that would hurt . Because everything about what happened to Simon Snow from the beginning of his life to his graduation from Watford was designed to damage. With the shining exceptions of Penny and Baz. And so th
