    I love the book, and Newell's style, and this cast, so I will be checking this out, even though this is kind of a poorly cut trailer. Also very spoilerific for anyone who hasn't read the book.

    I'll bet it will be released right around the award season, and Bonham Carter will get her best supporting actress award

    Not following the book very well from what I am seeing here... There is a great cast... But still that doesn't always mean anything...

    This guy directed Donnie Brasco and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Then again, he also did Prince of Persia and a slew of other crap. Then, of course, there's a great cast. Then again, I'm not feeling anything from them with this trailer... I think I'll pass.

    meh. zero chemistry. stale take on an overdone classic. if you're gonna do this (again) it needs to have a fresh spin on it.
