Movie Trailer: The Intense Gothic Suspense of ‘Jane Eyre’

Posted on Tuesday, November 9th, 2010 by Russ Fischer

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.

I believe I just shocked those working quietly near me when, about 25 seconds into this trailer, a fireplace vomited a great cloud of ash onto a young Jane and then a snippet of Goblin’s Suspiria score kicked in. I gasped ‘holy s$#!!’ rather loudly. Very loud, in fact. The tinkling, breathy opening of the main theme from Suspiria, a piece of music that has never failed to make the hair on my neck stand on end, is the last thing I expected to hear in this trailer.

So: point made. From the doom-laden opening moments depicting the young Jane’s mistreatment in her youth to the creeping gothic suspense and uncertain romance that develops between a grown Jane (Mia Wasikowska) and her employer Rochester ( Michael Fassbender), this looks like a film that could toe an admirable line between being faithful to the novel and feeling quite modern at the same time. Whether it will retain the social criticism of the book (likely) and the themes of morality and religion (hopeful) is yet to be seen.

What we can say now is that Jane Eyre looks wonderful (thanks in part to cinematographer Adriano Goldman, who also shot City of Men and Sin Nombre) and quite intense. And just look at the black, shiny eyes of Michael Fassbender in his last shot. Shivers. Can’t wait. Focus Features opens the film on March 11, 2011.

Yahoo has the trailer in HD.

Watch: Cary Fukunaga Plays Up The Gothic Horror In First Trailer For ‘Jane Eyre’

As big fans of Cary Fukunaga‘s debut “Sin Nombre,” we’ve been anticipating his follow-up, a new adaptation of Charlotte Bronte‘s classic novel “Jane Eyre” for quite some time. But it’s not been a home-run by any means: the novel’s been frequently filmed as it is, most recently by Zeffirelli in 1997, with Charlotte Gainsbourg in the lead role, and a 2006 BBC TV version starring Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens. For all the talk of a fresh take (and the non-traditional hire of Fukunaga, whose first film wasn’t exactly a staid costume drama) would the new version be able to break some new ground?

With a trailer hitting Yahoo this evening, the answer seems to be ‘yes.’ While the surroundings and costumes may be a little familiar, the Gothic tone of the clip captures something from the book that’s so often missing from the adaptations—the film looks to be as close to a classic ghost story like “The Innocents” as to something like “Pride & Prejudice.”

If you bunked off high school English, the plot involves the titular troubled orphan, who, while working as a governess, falls for the brooding Edward Rochester, a man with a terrible secret in his house.

The cast includes Playlist favorites Mia Wasikowska as Jane, Michael Fassbender as Rochester, and Imogen Poots as Blanche Ingram, with Jamie Bell, Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins, Simon McBurney, Harry Lloyd, Sally Hawkins, Tamzin Merchant and Holliday Grainger also cropping up.

The film hits theaters, via Focus Features, on March 11th next year—one of the few moments of concern, as surely if the film was top-notch, it’d be rushed into theaters for the awards season this year, or held back till next fall? But everything else we’ve seen looks enormously promising (the visuals are pretty gorgeous, particularly that closing shot), and we can’t wait to see the finished film.

Rate-a-Trailer: Cary Fukunaga’s Jane Eyre
6:08 pm Tuesday Nov 9, 2010 by Caroline Stanley

There are many things that make us excited about the latest film adaptation of Jane Eyre: For starters, it has been way too long since there was a period romance in theaters — The Young Victoria? The director is indie filmmaker Cary Fukunaga, whose debut feature, Sin Nombre, we absolutely loved. The cast includes Mia Wasikowska, Dame Judi Dench, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, and Sally Hawkins. There are beautiful shots of moody walks across even moodier moors. And most importantly, judging from the trailer, the film embraces the dark Gothic romanticism that always made us prefer Team Brontë over Team Austen.

Click through and tell us what you think.

Jane Eyre hits theaters March 11th, 2011.

Focus must feel they have a winner on their hands
By: Brad Brevet
Published: Tuesday, November 9th 2010 at 2:43 PM

I'm sensing a lot of confidence as Focus is moving full steam ahead with marketing for Jane Eyre, the upcoming Charlotte Bronte adaptation featuring Alice in Wonderland actress Mia Wasikowska in the title role for director Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre). Just yesterday we saw the debut of the first poster from the film which co-stars Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins and Imogen Poots.

The adaptation was penned by Moira Buffini whose only work to date so far is the adaptation of Tamara Drewe, which I didn't particularly enjoy, although I am in no way ready to write her off, this is hardly the same kind of material and perhaps she may be better suited for the classics rather than Posy Simmonds' graphic novel.

Jane Eyre is set for a March 11 release and begins as Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester (Fassbender). The isolated and imposing residence – and Mr. Rochester's coldness – have sorely tested the young woman's resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. As Jane reflects upon her past and recovers her natural curiosity, she will return to Mr. Rochester – and the terrible secret that he is hiding…

‘Jane Eyre’ Gets Horror-esque Treatment in Cary Fukunaga Adaptation
Search Speakeasy

By WSJ Staff

To be honest, Speakeasy has always been more of an Emily Bronte rather than Charlotte Bronte girl, but this trailer for a new adaptation of “Jane Eyre” — written by the latter — has us rather intrigued. Director Cary Fukunaga (”Sin Nombre”) has given his take on Eyre a horror-ish feel that goes beyond the gothic interpretation of the Bronte’s tale. We like it. This version stars Mia Wasikowska (”The Kids Are All Right”) as orphan-turned-governess Jane and Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester,the broody and mysterious widower whose daughter is cared for by Jane. Dame Judi Dench and Sally Hawkins co-star.

Focus will release the film on March 11, 2011.

Jane Eyre Trailer Arrives
Charlotte Bronte's tale filmed again...
Source: Yahoo Movies

As with most of the Bronte sisters’ output, Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre has been adapted numerous times for the stage and screens both big and small. The latest cinematic version comes via writer Moira Buffini and Sin Nombre director Cary Fukunaga, who are playing up the gothic elements of the story, if the new trailer is to be believed.

Alice in Wonderland’s Mia Wasikowska takes the lead as the troubled Jane, a young woman who suffered emotional and physical bullying at the hands of her aunt and cousins and has grown up to be a haunted adult.

But she takes some comfort in her friendship with brusque, Byronic employer Mr Rochester (Michael Fassbender), who both scares and attracts her. Yet as they become closer, she starts to realise Rochester is hiding a dark secret. Yes! He’s a vampire! No, no… They haven’t gone and changed massive chunks of the plot to appeal to the Twilight generation.

The cast boasts some impressive talents beyond just the lead pair, with Judi Dench, Jamie Bell Sally Hawkins and more in support. Take a look at the trailer below and tell us whether you think it holds up to past adaptations.

Jane Eyre is scheduled to be released on March 11 in the US, but doesn’t seem to have a solid UK date set yet.

Jane Eyre Trailer

Wow this looks beautiful. Focus Features has just unveiled the official trailer on Yahoo for Cary Fukunaga's Jane Eyre, his new gothic horror take on the Charlotte Brontë classic, starring Mia Wasikowska as the titular Jane Eyre, Michael Fassbender as Edward Rochester, as well as Judi Dench and Jamie Bell. This looks absolute amazing, I must say. I wasn't sure what to expect, but wow Fukunaga has taken a very unique spin on this classic and I'm flipping for it. I don't usually have much interest in period pieces, but this looks thrilling. Do yourself a big favor and check out this new trailer, I'm certain you won't regret it. Watch below!

Based on Charlotte Brontë's classic novel, Fukunaga's new romantic drama stars Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) in the lead roles. In the story, Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. The isolated and imposing residence, and Rochester's coldness, have sorely tested the young woman's resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned.

Trailer: Mia Wasikowska as the Latest 'Jane Eyre'

Charlotte Bronte's novel Jane Eyre has been adapted for film and TV quite a bit—this IMDB search returns 22 results—but it's about to get another rendition. This newest version features Mia Wasikowska in the title role, and Michael Fassbender as Edward.

Wasikowska looks like she's effectively parlaying her starring role in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland into some interestingly varied parts, although this too is an oft-realized literary character. She'll also be in Restless next year, which should be quite a bit different.

Fassbender was great in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, and we'll all presumably get to know him a lot better next year when he takes on the role of Magneto in X-Men: First Class.

This iteration of Jane Eyre is directed by Cary Fukunaga, whose feature-length directorial debut came in 2009 with the critically-acclaimed Sin Nombre. I like the willingness he's showing to go in completely different directions so far, if nothing else. Tackling a period piece like this is nothing to sneeze at, and as you'll see in the trailer below, it looks pretty good in that regard.

Jane Eyre opens March 11 of next year.

Expect The Unexpected From Surprising New ‘Jane Eyre’ Trailer
Tuesday, 09 November 2010 15:22 Written by Matt Molgaard

If you’re anything like myself, you hear of a new film adaptation of Jane Eyre and you envision a drab literary rehashing that we've seen over, and over again. We know the tale, and maybe knowing that, should have perhaps prepared me for what this new Jane Eyre could potentially offer.

There’s a wealth of emotion to the story, and while it hasn’t always made for the most stimulating cinema, director Cary Fukunaga looks determined to siphon new emotion from an old tale.

The trailer is filled to the brim with suspense, and thick tension. There looks to be a genuine element of terror to this vision missing in countless past works. I’d never imagine myself saying it, but I’m really looking forward to Jane Eyre!

Jane Eyre stars Mia Wasikowska as the titular character, while Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, Sophie Ward and Judi Dench help fill the ensemble.

Expect the film March 11th, 2011!

It’s here! Trailer for Cary Fukunaga’s “Jane Eyre”

Jane Eyre OnesheetIs it spring yet? Can it be spring already? Please? Pretty please?

Yes, I’m begging for spring for good reason. I promise. That reason? Cary Fukunaga’s follow up to Sin Nombre (review). A take on the famous Charlotte Brontë romance. Jane Eyre stars Mia Wasikowska as Jane, the “mousy” governess, and Michael Fassbender as her beloved Rochester along with Judi Dench, Jamie Bell and Sally Hawkins in an assortment of supporting roles.

I was already keen on seeing the film and the release of the gorgeous poster, seen to the right, yesterday peaked my interested and now, quick on the heels of the poster release, we get a trailer for the production which features everything I could have wanted and more. Lots of grey, a little melodrama, a bit of mystery and enough Fassbender in period drab to make me smile from ear to ear.

You’d better believe that Michael O’Connor, who won an Oscar for his costume design in The Duchess (review), will be a front runner yet again in 2011. As for the use of the Goblins’ Suspiria theme at the beginning…an odd but effective touch.

Jane Eyre opens March 11, 2011. Not soon enough.

Trailer tucked under the seat!

Mia is the new Helena

* November 9th, 2010
* Posted in News
* By Jessica

Mia Wasikowska, she of “Alice In Wonderland” fame is my pick to take the place of Helena Bonham Carter as mistress of period dramas and classic lit redos.

Mia stars as Jane Eyre opposite the oh so under appreciated Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester and the amazing Dame Judi Dench as Mrs. Fairfax.

The film looks eerie, pretty, and all around yummy. It’s one of my favorite gothic novels and I’ve yet to find someone who can top the almight Orson Welles as Mr. R. So let’s see if the man who brought the sexy to Hex the TV series (we don’t speak of Jonah Hex here) can maybe do the job. Watch and discuss below.

Trailer Time: Jane Eyre, starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender
Posted by Travis Hopson on Tuesday, November 9, 2010

Seriously, do you think I would even be bothering if this were just another run of the mill adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre? Of course not, but throw in Cary Fukunaga, director of the powerful immigration film Sin Nombre, and you've got my attention. Throw in Mia Wasikowska and the always charismatic(ok, except in Jonah Hex) Michael Fassbender and you've got a flick I'll be keeping my eyes on.

It won't take long for you to realize that this isn't going to be like any adaptation you've seen before, either. Everything from the creepy musical score to the brooding, heavy gloom hanging over every shot has me intrigued. And there's always been something a bit terrifying about Judi Dench.

Focus Features is looking to have this released on March 11th, 2011. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think!

Fantastically Dark Trailer for JANE EYRE

Published on: 9th November, 2010

Focus Features has released a fantastic trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of the classic novel by Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre. I love this trailer, and the film looks like it’s going to be great. There’s a point in the trailer when a cloud of black ash from a fireplace explodes at a young Jane, at which point the classic score from Susperia surprisingly kicks into high gear. I really wasn’t expecting that, but it’s there, and it set a great tone for the trailer.

I honestly didn’t think I would be interested in seeing this movie. It’s been such a long time since I’ve read the novel, but after watching this trailer, I’m looking forward to seeing the movie.

The film was directed by Cary Fukunaga, and it has a great cast of actors that include Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins ,Imogen Poots, Holliday Grainger and Tamsin Merchant.

Synopsis:

Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. The isolated and imposing residence – and Mr. Rochester’s coldness – have sorely tested the young woman’s resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. As Jane reflects upon her past and recovers her natural curiosity, she will return to Mr. Rochester – and the terrible secret that he is hiding…

New "Jane Eyre" from "Sin Nombre" director

Mia Wasikowska as "Jane Eyre," opening March 18

The unforgettable 2009 sleeper "Sin Nombre," the first film from writer/director Cary Fukunaga, was as smashing a film debut as I've ever seen. The film followed the dangerous, desperate journey of a few hopeful immigrants on the tops of trains northbound from Guatemala, through Mexico and into the great United States beyond.

"Sin Nombre"
Focus Features released the film that spring and saw moderate art house success, but while "Sin Nombre" faded relatively fast from theatrical release and onto DVD for future fans to discover and hold dear, its director became the next big One to Watch. Focus quickly, wisely, signed the 33-year-old American-born Fukunaga to a two-picture deal, keeping him in the fold while developing his next pair of projects. First up: Fukunaga directs the studio's new take on Charlotte Bronte's gothic masterpiece "Jane Eyre." with starlet du jour Mia Wasikowska ("Alice in Wonderland, "The Kids are All Right," this January's Gus Van Sant dying-girl-and-ghosts love story "Restless") cinching into the classic corset of the mysterious orphan Jane.

Cary Fukunaga
Fukunaga's visual aesthetic is just what a new spin on "Jane Eyre" needs if there's any hope for it to be relevant, and with an ensemble featuring Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins, Michael Fassbender and Jamie Bell, the odds are looking pretty damn good. It helps that young star Wasikowska continues to offset any risk of overexposure with a wealth of talent, and Jane Eyre just may be the role that finally lands her in the big leagues.

Here's the first trailer for "Jane Eyre," which is set to open on March 18, 2011.

Just yesterday Focus Features released the stunning poster above for ‘Jane Eyre’, Cary Fukunaga‘s adaptation of Charlotte Brontë‘s classic gothic romance. Now today we are blessed with this haunting trailer for the film. Both the trailer and poster get full marks from me, I REALLY like the look of this, to further add to my anticipation I was a big fan of Fukunaga’s first feature film ‘Sin Nombre’. All in all I’m pretty stoked, my attention has been successfully grabbed! Jane Eyre stars Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender in the lead roles, the supporting cast includes Jamie Bell, Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins, Imogen Poots, Holliday Grainger and Tamsin Merchant. Jane Eyre is set to hit cinemas March 11th, 2011.

Based on Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel, the romantic drama stars Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland”) and Michael Fassbender (“Inglourious Basterds”) in the lead roles.

Jane Eyre Gets a Fascinating Trailer
Just yesterday the poster art for Cary Fukunaga's adaptation of the Charlotte Brontë novel Jane Eyre debuted. Now the film, currently set for a March release, has a quite fascinating trailer.

Mia Wasikowska stars as the titular character, while Michael Fassbender plays the male lead. If the trailer is an accurate indication, Wasikowska gives yet another intuitive and engaging performance. With her status as a breakthrough actress this year, it looks as if she has a bright future in Hollywood.

In addition to Wasikowska and Fassbender, Jane Eyre also stars dependable actors such as Dame Judi Dench, Jamie Bell, and Sally Hawkins.

Bedtime Story?
Posted: November 10th, 2010 | Author: Sammy J

It’s a won­der­ful thing that par­ents read their chil­dren bed­time sto­ries. To go to sleep with images and ideas of fan­tas­tic worlds and new ideas and hope and excite­ment, well that’s just won­der­ful. bed­time sto­ries weren’t much of a tra­di­tion in my fam­ily. That said, my steady diet of Roald Dahl sent me to sleep with as much crazi­ness as a child can handle.

The only clear mem­ory I have of my mum read­ing to my sis­ter and I as kids was when I was 6 and my sis­ter and I were shar­ing a large, cold bed­room in a colo­nial era weath­er­board clad house in north west Tas­ma­nia. The house was a lit­tle creepy, but also exct­ing, and with only the orange glow of the bar-heater to light the room, it was a fan­tas­tic set­ting to hear some­thing like Where the Wild Things Are. But no.

Mum read us Jane Eyre.

I think I’ve been scarred for life by the expe­ri­ence. Well, no, not really. But I do have a strange per­spec­tive of it. A six year old boy has no inter­est in the roman­tic under­tones or his­tor­i­cal com­men­tary of such a novel. Instead it was the sin­is­ter nature of peo­ple and places, the mys­tery that most affected me.

And this is prob­a­bly why I’m keen to see this new screen adap­ta­tion of the Char­lotte Brontë clas­sic. It seems to focus more on the creepy gothic feel of the story. Of the dozens of screen adap­ta­tions of this novel that are out there, I’ve only seen one, so I’m also hop­ing that this ver­sion finally kills off images of Tim­o­thy Dal­ton as Mr Rochester. And I’m keen to see Michael Fass­ben­der and Mia Wasikowska take on the lead roles. Awesome.

Blow-by-blow dissection of Jane Eyre trailer

The long wait is finally over! The long wait for the trailer, that is. We still have to wait another 4 months or so for the film itself.

But in the meantime, the trailer offers plenty for us Bronteites and Period Drama Maniacs to pick over, examine, turn upside down, criticise, mull over, discuss, praise and protest.

Warning: some spoilers may be disclosed in the following post.

0:00 The first thing that presents itself upon viewing the trailer is the fact that the film has been rated PG-13 for "Some thematic elements including a nude image and brief violent content". Disappointing news for the more conservative among us, or for anyone who had been wanting to take younger sisters to see this.

0:07 Graves being dug, coffins being lowered into the ground; the typhoid epidemic at Lowood. Dark, sombre, suitably Gothic tone immediately established. . .

0:09 Jane running through a hallway at Gateshead, with a book in her arms. What would she be running from? John Reed? The young actress cast as the Young Jane looks remarkably like Mia Wasikowska. (A nice change - in many of the earlier adaptations, Young and "Old" Jane didn't bear much resemblance to each other at all - Georgie Henley and Ruth Wilson, Sian Pattenden and Zelah Clarke, etc.) Voiceover from Mr. Brocklehurst begins.

0:10 Is that our first glimpse of Thornfield Hall? Very dark and Gothic. Funnily enough, Thornfield (as a building) and the surrounding landscape is actually supposed to be very green and pleasant, but of course this is never portrayed in the films adaptations, because "Dark and Gothic" is supposed to be much more interesting and romantic.

0:11 Poor Helen Burns - identifiable by her red hair - being beaten.

0:12 Presumably Bertha holding a match and lighting the fire in Rochester's Room.

0:12 The "fire scene".

0:13 Jane running again.

0:14 Mr. Brocklehurst, looking very slimy and unpleasant. Nice bunch of flowers, though.

0:16 John Reed, looking appropriately sneaky and slimy - but what on earth is he doing with that sword in his hand!! As I recall, a book was his weapon of choice. . .

0:17 Jane in her beloved retreat - behind the curtains, in the window seat.

0:18 Jane, taken into the Red Room. Which of the two women is Bessie, I wonder? I wouldn't be surprised if they all but do away with Bessie's character altogether, partly because they don't have time to develop her character, partly because they want to make Jane's childhood seem as bleak as possible, with no kindness or affection whatsoever. Hm, I wonder if they'll do the same with Miss Temple's character?

0:19 Jane answering Mr. Brocklehurst.

0:21 Mr. Brocklehurst and the flowers again.

0:23 Jane in the Red Room.

0:24 This is random, but the red wallpaper kind of matches my blog's background.

0:25 So it's a sort of explosion of smoke that scares Jane in this version! Rather less creepy than that light moving across the wall in the dark, I should have thought, though perhaps more cinematically plausible and impressive.

0:27 Poor Jane, having passed out. She looks tiny on the massive carpet in the great big room.

0:28 Jane speaking to Mrs. Reed. So far, most of the dialogue seems to have been taken straight from the book. Always a good sign.

0:29 I'm really liking this Young Jane. In many of the adaptations, Jane as a child comes across as being almost a bit bratty, because they only show the scenes where Jane is, for the first time, speaking her mind and rebelling against Mrs. Reed. Hopefully this Jane will do a good job in portraying Jane's normal meek, subdued state, as well as her passionate outbursts.

0:30 What we've all been waiting to see! That seemingly incomprehensible piece of casting - tiny, fragile, beautiful Sally Hawkins as the large, robust, cruel Mrs. Reed!

0:31 First glimpse of Lowood - since the very opening scene, of course.

0:32 Mr. Brocklehurst giving "that" speech to the girls and teachers at Lowood. What a striking picture, of the light shining in on Jane standing on her stool, while all the other girls file past. Lowood doesn't seem as OTT gloomy and gothic as it did in the JE 2006, thank goodness.

0:36 The grown-up Jane running away from Thornfield and Rochester, though weirdly it is implied in the trailer that she is running away from Lowood, to Thornfield.

0:39 Jane as she is always pictured, always imagined - quakerish and bonneted. Interesting to note how the costume department once again included just a scrap of red in Jane's outfit, to imply that beneath the restrained exterior, there is a passionate nature lurking within. Remember that red neck-tie thingy that Jane wore a lot in JE 2006?

0:41 What on earth?? So Mr. Rochester sort of sneaks up on her and frightens the heck out of her, rather than galloping past until the sight of Jane spooks the horse? Probably it won't really be like that in the movie, but that's how they make it seem in the trailer. Razz Oh, and where's Pilot? They can't leave Pilot out!! They'd better not!! Gorgeous atmosphere though - mist, dead leaves, bare trees - very wintry and bleakly beautiful.

0:42 The familiar "Necessity compels me to make you useful" scene.

0:43 Thornfield Hall. I think those two figures at the far right of screen are Jane and Rochester, running in together to escape the storm, just after the proposal scene. You can just hear a roll of thunder. Voiceover by Judi Dench/Mrs. Fairfax begins.
Photobucket

0:49 First look at Judi Dench as Mrs. Fairfax.

0:50 I'm guessing this scene is after J and R have known each other some time, since R doesn't appear to be limping. Our first proper look ar Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester. He doesn't look quite Rochesterian to me. Perhaps because he isn't dark enough. Oh well, maybe he'll grow on me. . .

0:55 Nope, sorry, he doesn't look like Rochester. Something just isn't right!

0:58 I hope they left out a big chunk of dialogue for the trailer, because if this is how the dialogue goes in the movie. . .

1:00 We have passed the 1 minute mark! :-D I think this is Jane arriving at Lowood.

1:03 First glimpse of Bertha.

1:04 Jane speaking to Rochester of seeing Bertha tear her wedding veil.

1:09 What does he say here? I can't make it out. It sounds like “You've transfixed me quite”, which is bad English.

1:10 Is it just me, or would Jane never wear a dress even this low-cut?

1:13 After the fire. It seems they've pushed this scene forward several hours – it appears to be dawn, rather than the middle of the night.

1:17 Rochester exercising after he hurts his ankle, I suppose. Beautiful tree!
Photobucket

1:18 Yes! Yesss!! *fist pumps* Blanche Ingram is a brunette, as she is supposed to be, rather than a blonde, as we had feared! :-D Imogen Poots looks nicely snooty and stuck-up. Gorgeous dress.

1:22 Another striking dress. Now what is going on here, in this scene? Another set-up of Rochester's, to make Jane feel jealous?
Photobucket

1:24 What do ya'll think about having a red-headed Jane? To my knowledge, Mia Wasikowska is the first ginger Jane in the history of Janes. Has there ever been a blonde Jane, does anyone know?

1:26 Jane after she has run away from Thornfield. But then, what is the building? Another possible expanation could be that this is a dream sequence. Remember that dream Jane has just before she sees Bertha tear her veil in two?

1:27 Now this is intriguing. It appears that in this film even the staircase leading to Bertha's room is concealed. Just to add to the sense of mystery. Whose bedroom is this supposed to be? Rochester's?

1:32 Proposal scene, proposal scene! :-D What do you think of Mia's delivery of that famous line?

1:36 Jane running away.

1:37 Rochester discovering that she is gone. Now, this is different to how it is in the book!

1:40 Beautiful photography once again.

1:41 Bertha lighting the fire – again?

1:42 It's that concealed staircase again!
Photobucket

1:44 First glimpse of Jamie Bell as St John Rivers! He's nowhere near good-looking enough, IMO. No offense to Mr. Bell.

1:44 Proposal scene again! That seat running around the tree-trunk looks like a halo with the light shining on it. It looks quite odd, actually – must be made of very thin board.

1:45 Jane destitute after running away. Knocking on the Rivers' door, perhaps?

1:46 There've been a couple of shots of Rochester riding on horseback – just to show how strong and manly and stuff he is, I suppose.

1:47 Jane running away. You can see the anguish on her face. Oh and once again, just that hint of red – this time, her bag.

1:48 A fly – on a Bible – I think.

1:48 St John again.

1:48 Eww! I mean, awww. . . J and R just after running in from the storm at 0:43.

1:49 No idea what this is. Who's the little boy? Unless it's the grave scene from 0:07.

1:49 Jane springing on John. Go Jane!!

1:50 Jane running. . . again. . . not precisely certain where she's running to/from, or if it is indeed even Jane. The clothes seem to be too pretty and frivolous. . . hang on, perhaps it's after the “wedding”, and they're running from the church back to Thornfield? No, that doesn't seem right, either. . . I give up. . .

1:51 Can this be – the library scene? Or is it just after she arrives at the Rivers'?

1:51 Bertha slapping Rochester!

1:53 Who was that leaping off the fence? St John? Well, it has be either St John or Rochester, since they're pretty much the only men in the book.

1:53 Fire scene again!

1:56 Naughty, naughty screenwriter! Making up dialogue that wasn't in the book! This must be after Mr. Rochester has been blinded.

The verdict: I think this will eventually rank at about the mid-point on my list of Jane Eyre adaptations. Better than the 1997 JE, possibly also better than the the 1996 one. Not as good as the 1983 one. Maybe on par with JE 2006, though that version will always have an advantage over this one because of its length – twice as long, twice as much time to develop the story and characters.

From what I've seen, I'm really like both the young Jane and the grown-up Jane in this version. Mia Wasikowska has a wonderful, child-like quality about her. It'll also be nice to have a Jane who is roughly the right age – Jane Eyre is supposed to be 18, Mia has just turned 21.

On the hand, I'm less than convinced by Michael Fassbender's Rochester. We'll see. . .

The cinematography looks absolutely stunning. This will be the most visually impressive JE to date. I wonder who's composing the score? *Goes off to check IMDb*

Alright, I couldn't find out who the composer is, but I did discover a couple of other interesting tidbits from IMDB – Harry Lloyd fans, Harry plays Richard Mason! And Tamzin Merchant (Georgiana in P&P05) plays Mary Rivers. Also, have a look at the list of filming locations. Looks like it was almost all shot on location in Derbyshire (including Chatsworth, aka Pemberley). I'm guessing Chatsworth was used mostly for the interior shots of Gateshead.

I also found out what that bothersome “nude image” is – according to the IMDB forums, we very briefly see – don't laugh – Mr. Rochester's rear.

Tuesday night trailer: “Jane Eyre”

Posted by Bob Westal (11/10/2010 @ 12:26 am)

I’m not sure how I’ve managed it, considering I was an English major throughout high school and half of college and all, but I’ve somehow managed to miss not only Charlotte Bronte’s novel, but every film and television version so far of “Jane Eyre.” Nevertheless, after hearing actress Sally Hawkins — who appears for half a second in this trailer — praise the director yesterday in casual conversation at a press day, and seeing the trailer below, I not only am looking forward to the movie, which stars the fast-rising pair of Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender as well as Judi Dench, Jamie Bell, and Imogen Potts, I think it might be time for me to read the book. I’m a sucker for mistreated child stories.

By the way, that director is Cary Fukunaga, who pulled off a very impressive debut with “Sin Nombre.” Promising.

H/t Coming Soon.

Movie Trailer Review: ‘Jane Eyre'

Written by
TheOpinionatedB
New York, NY

It's no secret that I love a good literary adaptation period drama. So it is with nerd girl pride that I look forward to the release of the umpteenth incarnation of Charlotte Brontë's gothic love story, "Jane Eyre."

Much like any of the novels by Jane Austen, "Jane Eyre" is a story that has been turned into more movies and TV miniseries than I can count (including one featuring a young Anna Paquin as Young Jane). Each version presents the material in varying degrees of depth, but at its core, the story is always the same: See Jane have horrible childhood. See Jane finally find happiness as a governess. See Jane fall in love with the broody and mysterious Mr. Rochester. See everything go spectacularly insane.

The trailer for this new telling of "Jane Eyre" hits all the right notes in setting the tone for the movie: dark, morose, and…foggy. However, there are a couple of things that make me raise an eyebrow; specifically, Mia Wasikowska (playing Jane) isn't British and Michael Fassbender (also not British, but at least European) is way too handsome to play the "not beautiful, according to rule" Mr. Rochester. But Judi Dench is there, too, which sort of evens everything out.

Also starring Sally Hawkins and Jamie Bell, "Jane Eyre" will be "three hundred sixty-five degrees…" on March 11, 2011.

New Trailer: Charlotte Brontë’s ghostly, “Jane Eyre”
Published on November 10, 2010 by Laura Stackhouse

If there’s one thing a large majority of cinema-goers like, it’s adaptations of classical novels. Anything written by Austen, or the Brontë sisters, for example, probably creates huge dollar signs in the eyes of money-hungry film execs.

So it should come as no surprise that another one is on the cards for next year. Charlotte Brontë’s, JANE EYRE is set for a March 11 release and stars Mia Wasikowska (ALICE IN WONDERLAND) in the title role. The plot revolves around Jane, who leaves her home at Thornfield House in search of a better life. On her way, she becomes a governess for the rich and perpetually broody Edward Rochester, who’s dark demeanour hides a horrifying secret.

Directed by Cary Fukunaga, it also stars Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, and Dame Judi Dench.

Feast your eyes on the trailer below. Thoughts?

Cary Fukunaga Going For Horror in ‘Jane Eyre’ Trailer
Movie News By Jack Giroux on November 10, 2010

This isn’t what I expected Jane Eyre to look like. This may be from my own ignorance of not having read Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel, but where’s the standard period piece fluff? To my (great) surprise, director Cary Fukunaga is bringing Jane Eyre more into the suspense and supernatural world; the eerie score from Suspiria makes this a dead giveaway.

This doesn’t look like the usual period piece we get, and having the director of Sin Nombre makes that no shock. Fukunaga seemed like an odd choice for Eyre, but it’s now apparent the strange pick was for the better.

It’ll be nice to see a classical adaptation not blatantly going for Oscars with a 1,000 sweeping shots and total melodrama, and it looks like we won’t get that. Hopefully the film lives up to this small taste and delivers on the dark and creepy atmosphere it’s leading on here, especially with those cool, black-filled Michael Fassbender eyes. We don’t see that often…

Jane Eyre opens in theaters on March 11th, 2011.

First Trailer for Darker Version of Jane Eyre
Posted 11.10.10 by Ryan

A trailer for a new adaptation of Emily Brontë's Jane Eyre has debuted online and promises a "bold new vision" of the classic story. Director Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre) explained to Movieline in March how he planned to make his version of Jane Eyre different from previous adaptations.

I’m a stickler for raw authenticity, so I’ve spent a lot of time rereading the book and trying to feel out what Charlotte Brontë was feeling when she was writing it. That sort of spookiness that plagues the entire story... there’s been something like 24 adaptations, and it’s very rare that you see those sorts of darker sides. They treat it like it’s just a period romance, and I think it’s much more than that. It’s all about tension and creating that sense of horror underneath.

Fukunaga's version stars Mia Wasikowska as the title character, whose work as a governess brings her to romance and tragedy. Michael Fassbender plays Jane's employer, Mr. Rochester, while Judi Dench plays Mrs. Fairfax, Imogen Poots as Blanche Ingram, and Jamie Bell as St. John.
