Great Expectations Poster

Temperatures dipping everywhere mean at least two things for the cinema: arthouse and adaptation releases are gearing up for their end-of-year showcases, and this year is certainly no slouch when it comes to high-profile directors advertising their latest creations.

On the adaptation side of proceedings, Mike Newell's riff on Charles Dickens' classic “Great Expectations” has just landed with a new poster, and true to form it shows off the youthful cast in period décor surrounded by their British acting mentors. This time around featuring Jeremy Irvine and Holliday Grainger as Pip and Estella, who fall in love under the imposing presence of Miss Havisham (Helena Bonham Carter), the film also features the always-reliable Ralph Fiennes as Magwitch, the man who could provide some safety to the couple in jeopardy. Whether Newell's film will reach the heights of David Lean or Alfonso Cuaron's takes remains to be seen, but the newest version will have its UK release November 30th before making its way to the US thereafter.
