But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Great Expectations trailer brings Dickens' best-loved story to life Print E-mail

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.
