Focus Features has dropped new images from two of the company’s more promising 2011 films: Lone Scherfig‘s One Day and Cary Fukunaga‘s Jane Eyre.

That’s the new Jane Eyre image, above, showing Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender as the lead characters of Charlotte Brontë‘s famous novel. We’ve seen one trailer already (and it was pretty wonderful, check it if you missed that post) but this image is notable for showing the characters in a serene, even tender moment.

Yesterday we showed you a new poster and synopsis for the new version of Jane Eyre directed by Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre). And I understand that a lot of people might think, oh, great, Jane Eyre. Groan. Another dull, hidebound literary adaptation.

If that’s the way you were looking at this movie, please give this trailer a chance. Granted, it may deliberately be trying to sell one vision of the film. But if nothing else, the first minute of this debut look at Jane Eyre — in fact the whole trailer — promises that it is not the movie you think it is. Read More »

I’ve always been one who appreciates Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre at arm’s length; it’s a great book, an indisputable classic, but not one for which I’ve got some real passion. So a new film version isn’t something I would expect to be excited to see. Enter Cary Fukunaga, the director of the wonderful Sin Nombre, who shot his verion of Jane Eyre this year.

His film based on the novel is set to release March 11, 2011, with Mia Wasikowska in the title role and Michael Fassbender as Rochester, the man who employs Jane and with whom she falls in love. The film also boasts Jamie Bell, Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins, Imogen Poots, Holliday Grainger and Tamsin Merchant. And now it has an excellent poster, which you can see in full after the break.

Oh, this is some good stuff. I was a little surprised recently when the announcement came down that Cary Fukunaga, who directed the very excellent Sin Nombre, would adapt Charlotte Bronte‘s classic novel Jane Eyre as his next film. But I liked Sin Nombre so much that I’ll watch anything Fukunaga does at this point. Especially now that he’s likely to have Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender in the lead roles. Read More »
