They need to recast this thing. That guy is no Count Vronsky. Also, the trailer shows too much.

I read only that version too. I didn't think it was too bad, maybe a little stale but it did the job.

Re: FIRST LOOK: Keira Knightley is Anna Karenina

As much as I love Keira, I think they should've picked another actress. The same goes with the rest of the (main) cast.

Anyway, I have a feeling this will be a major disappointment overall.

Count Vronsky

Levin looks much scruffier than I've imagined

This.

And of course, Saoirse Ronan. (What kind of name is that by the way, Irish? Saoirse? How do you pronounce it? Just checked IMDB and she's not on the movie list)

Re: FIRST LOOK: Keira Knightley is Anna Karenina

After watching the trailer I don't think it will be even close to living up to the greatness of the book. But it should still be an entertaining watch.

Re: FIRST LOOK: Keira Knightley is Anna Karenina

Actress Gives Her Best Performance Yet in Period Drama

Keira Knightley is the queen of period movies and she gives what could be the best performance of her career in her new movie “Anna Karenina,” according to a new extended trailer.
Knightley, 27, practically lives in the 19th Century on screen. Her performance in the Tolstoy classic is passionate and breathtaking. Is there an Oscar in her future, or at least a British equivalent, the BAFTA?
The Russian novel, scandalous for its time, has been made into films seven times before, going back to 1915. Silent film actress Betty Nansen first brought Anna alive on the silver screen. The most acclaimed version, released in 1935, stars Greta Garbo, Fredric March, Basil Rathbone and Maureen O’Sullivan.
Knightley will also have backing from a solid cast. Alicia Vikander plays Kitty, Jude Law plays spurned husband Alexei Karenin, Aaron Johnson is Count Vronsky and Matthew Macfadyen plays Oblonsky, Anna’s brother.
Anna is an aristocrat and socialite in a lifeless marriage who has a scandalous affair with the wealthy and dashing Count Vronsky. It ultimately ends tragically.
The clip, which runs for about five minutes, opens with Knightley as Anna at a lavish ball. She’s pursued relentlessly by the count while the room is atwitter with gossip. Her husband, the older, dignified Alexei shows up to take her home and she casually blows him off.
Alexei leaves without a fight and the hot-blooded Vronsky continues his quest, threatening to leave for a distant posting, unless Anna tells him not to. She seems to want to be rid of him at first, but gives in to her desires and begs him not to go.
Her other period dramas include 2005′s “Pride & Prejudice,” “Atonement” and “Silk” in 2007, “The Duchess” in 2008 and “A Dangerous Method” last year. She’s been nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe as best actress for “Pride & Prejudice” and has also been nominated for a BAFTA.

How do you want her to speak? Anna Karenina was upper class! It's an English speaking film! There are Russian versions if you prefer.

All the best for 2012 to:

Agree. Though I doubt many people these days could read the book!

It is a groundbreaking film in the period piece genre. And of course, it's not going be as great as the novel. Novels and films are two completely different artistic mediums. Film is a visual art and should tell a story from the actions and connections in events.

I tried a few years ago, but just couldn't wade through it! The characters' multiple names did me in before I got a quarter way through it. And like many books from many years ago deemed great works, it is really slow.

I just wonder: how relevant today is a story of a woman having an affair? I mean come on, most women wouldn't fling themselves in front of a train these days! Anna and her lover would be just emailing each other and meeting up in lunchtimes/after work for a bit of passion!

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.

Agree. A piece of cinema has to hold the audience, and it has to be relevant to the audience. If it was as long and tortuous as the book no one would go and see it! Only a few years ago the remake of Dr Zhivago (with Keira in the Julie Christie role) flopped on TV - not many younger audiences can relate to what used to be scandalous/provoking/moving. Times change.
