After teaming together for Atonement and Pride and Prejudice, both director Joe Wright and Keira Knightley went off to do a little something different the last few years. The former helmed the action drama Hanna and the latter has her romantic apocalyptic comedy arriving this week, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. They’ve joined back together for another period drama, this time taking on an adaptation of Leo Tolstoy‘s Anna Karenina.
The first trailer has arrived together, which sees Wright back in the world of elegant costumes and immaculate production design. I have no doubt he’ll craft something respectable, as this trailer hints at another visually pleasant drama that could certainly be an awards contender. Check it out below via MSN for the film also starring Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Olivia Williams, Ruth Wilson and Holliday Grainger.
Anna Karenina hits the US on November 9th and a few months earlier in the UK, on September 7th.
