Behold, The Trailer For 'Anna Karenina' Starring Keira Knightley
And here, we have the trailer for the film adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's epic story of Russian people pretending to be French, Anna Karenina.
I know there's some universal law that says Keira Knightley must be cast in the film version of every female-driven literary classic, but I always pictured Anna as a bit zaftig. Also, Aaron Johnson as Vronsky? Not feeling it. Should have been Jon Hamm. And why is everyone suddenly British?!
All that aside... I don't hate this. I like the visuals. Director Joe Wright has made the gutsy move of setting the entire story in a theater. For a book as sprawling as this, that's one way to make it a little more concise. I can get on board with it.
We'll see. Film hits theaters Nov. 9. What do you think?
