There's nothing like a bit of Great Expectations to round off Charles Dickens' bicentenary. And Mike Newell knows it, bringing his own adaptation of the novel to the screen just in time for the London Film Festival.
Some may take issue with the obvious casting of Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham. Others may complain that we've had enough films based on Great Expectations already. Me? I'm just bothered by the fact that the Great Expectations trailer calls it Dickens' "best-loved story". Nothing can rival my love of A Christmas Carol - thank you, Muppets - except for maybe Sally Hawkins. Luckily, she's in Newell's movie too.
Here's the trailer:
Great Expectations is in UK cinemas on Friday 30th November.
