Joe Wright moved from the stately but intense period piece Atonement to the violent modern fairy tale Hanna without missing a step, and now he has danced back to period form with an adaptation of Leo Tolstoy‘s classic romance Anna Karenina. ‘Danced’ is exactly the word to use, as Wright shot most of the film on a single soundstage, and there is a very theatrical look to the sumptuous footage. If you hear a distant vibration, that’s Baz Luhrmann quaking with envy, and awards-season fear.

Tom Stoppard (Brazil, Shakespeare in Love, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead) scripted, and the film stars Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, and Kelly Macdonald, with Matthew Macfadyen, Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, Emily Watson, Olivia Williams and Ruth Wilson.

Check out the footage below.

You might have seen the trailers for Paul W.S. Anderson‘s version of The Three Musketeers, naturally shot in 3D, and been left wondering if the movie is really for you. The film is on screens today, and to aid you in making the crucial ticket-buying  decision the first few minutes of the film have landed online.

We’ve already seen some images and a teaser for Paul W.S. Anderson‘s 3-D “reboot” of The Three Musketeers. Now, a just-released full-length trailer is offering the best look yet at Anderson’s take on 17th century France — and apparently, his version involves flying war blimps. Because why not, I guess.

Loosely based on the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers follows the iconic trio (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) and their young new teammate D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) as they fight to save their continent from a powerfully malevolent trio of baddies: Cardinal Richlieu (Christoph Waltz), the Duke of Buckingham (Orlando Bloom with evil facial hair and evil-er eyeliner) and the infamous assassin Milady de Winter (Milla Jovovich). Watch the trailer after the jump. Read More »

After taking a break to make the kick-ass action flick Hanna, Joe Wright is back to his classically literary tricks. The director of Pride and Prejudice and Atonement will return to costumed drama for his next film, a star-studded adaptation of Leo Tolstoy‘s classic novel Anna Karenina. Already cast are Keira Knightley as the title character, Jude Law as her older husband and Aaron Johnson as her younger love. Wright is rounding out his ensemble with a solid list of names such as Saoirse Ronan, Kelly Macdonald, Olivia Williams, Matthew Macfadyen, Domhnall Gleeson and Andrea Riseborough. Read who each will be playing after the break. Read More »

Synopsis and the full image are after the break. Read More »
