The Trailer for the New Emma Production Is Out

Books & Mags, Movies & TV

It’s almost time for the release of the new Emma production written by Eleanor Catton and directed by Autumn de Wilde that I blogged about earlier this year. Here’s the trailer:

Emma – Official Teaser Trailer (Universal Pictures) HD by Universal Pictures UK on YouTube

Judging by the trailer only (which I know to be a precarious business), I’m not sure what to think, except that Bill Nighy’s Mr. Woodhouse might completely steal the show. And this looks to be a tonally very different reading of Emma than the previous screen adaptations.

It’s hard to say anything about Emma and Mr. Knightley from these super-short glimpses; furthermore, I haven’t seen either actor before (Anya Taylor-Joy and Johnny Flynn). On the other hand, I know Miranda Hart as Miss Bates is going to shine! The music-making looks lovely, and what we can see of the propping and costuming seems great.

Emma will be released on February 14, 2020, in the UK and February 21, 2020, in the U.S.

I am excite! 🙂 😀

Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
