Wow I agree, it looks really good! I felt the same about Estella though, she looks good, but not as great as I would have thought.

The sets look fantastic! Too bad we didn't get to hear clips from the rest of the cast--I imagine this will be the most Miss Havisham-focused version of GE.

I've always said that whoever plays Estella needs to be glammed up. I mean MAJORLY glammed up. For whatever reason, recent films just haven't done that.

Well, we'll see what they do with Holliday Grainger in the feature film . . .

I love what Gillian Anderson does with her voice here - it sounds nothing like her usual one!

I think that as long as the actress can really pull off Estella's haughtiness, I'll be happy. Everybody else looks fantastic! I wish the trailer was longer's just enough to get you super interested, then it ends...

This trailer looks very good and I sense the book has been well adapted. For anyone interested in some of the context to the content in the book (the real Mrs. Haversham, Dickens and Rochester, real escapes from prison hulks, convict life in Australia etc) you might enjoy our free website on 'Great Expectations' with OVER 40 VIDEOS -
