Honestly, I don’t know why I’m covering this, but apparently along the way, I decided I would cover it and so here you go, the first trailer and poster for “Anna Karenina”. The film is directed by Joe Wright, who went from the actioner “Hanna” to … this. I guess that’s one way to keep the audience on their toes, Joe. (Then again, he did go from “Pride and Prejudice” and “Atonement” (also with Knightley) to “Hanna”, so I guess in a way he’s going back to his roots rather than in the other direction.) Check it out if you’re interested, folks. Judging by the trailer, it looks like Keira Knightley spends half the movie in various states of ecstasy or thereabouts. So, you know, there’s that, Keira Knightley fans.
The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna (Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.
Starring Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Michelle Dockery, Aaron Johnson, Emily Watson, Olivia Williams, and Ruth Wilson.
Anna sleeps around November 9, 2012.
