It was over a year ago that we showed you the first glimpse of Helena Bonham Carter in full crazypants glory as Great Expectations‘ Miss Havisham. Now, though, the trailer itself has finally landed. Featuring the likes of Bellatrix Carter, Voldemort Ralph Fiennes, and Hagrid Robbie Coltrain–not to mention directed by Mike Newell, he who directed Goblet of Fire–it almost plays out as some strange alternate Harry Potter universe. Great Expectations is a classic in its own right, though, so this is a film to look out for. Scripted by One Day writer David Nicholls and also starring Jeremy Irvine and Holliday Grainger, the film opens in the U.K. in November. No U.S. release date has yet been announced.
