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.

  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 | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin
