Premiering at the Toronto Film Festival in September, will be Mike Newell‘s Great Expectations starring Jeremy Irvine, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Robbie Coltrane, Jason Flemyng, Sally Hawkins and Holliday Grainger. The latest adaptation of Charles Dickens’ novel is still without a domestic distributor, but Pathe has released an international trailer giving us a first look at the 2012 upgrade.
The story, as we all know, follows the little orphan Pip (played by War Horse star Jeremy Irvine) who rises from humble beginnings thanks to a mysterious benefactor. Moving through London’s class-ridden world as a gentleman, Pip uses his new status to pursue Estella (Grainger), a beautiful, heartless heiress he’s always loved. The shocking truth behind his fortune will have devastating consequences for everything he holds dear.
Along with the trailer I have seven images from the film which you can check out here. Otherwise, watch the trailer below and let me know what you think in the comments.
