New Looks At Keira Knightley, Aaron Johnson & Jude Law In Joe Wright’s ‘Anna Karenina’

New Looks At Keira Knightley, Aaron Johnson & Jude Law In Joe Wright's 'Anna Karenina'

Don’t expect the usual costume drama routine from Joe Wright‘s experimental take on “Anna Karenina.” Yes, it has been adapted for the big screen before, but if early word on this project is any indication, it’s going to be unlike anything we’ve seen before.

Starring Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson, Wright made the audacious decision to shoot the film nearly entirely on a single stage, in a take that has been described as being set in an “elastic universe” that will include toy trains and dollhouses standing in for exterior locations. Focus Features has dropped a handful of new images from the film, and if anything, this will certainly look gorgeous. But that’s not too much of a shock really, considering Wright is one of the best (if somewhat underrated) visual filmmakers working right now.

The film is currently pegged for a September 7th release date in the U.K., though no U.S. date has yet been penciled in (but we’d guess it’ll probably be right around the same time). We’re more curious than ever what Wright has in store. More pics below.

Oogle monster, what YOU? or how much is joe wright paying you to say so many bs's?


I adore Joe Wright for palpable atmosphere in his films. If he brings even a tiny part of it in Anna Karenina, his version will be successful. Judging by the shots the director feels the period of time.

This guy IS NOT an auteur and NOT one of the most visionary directors working today! Whoever wrote this article is a tired fool, praising the director with false hype that he has not earned. To the author, you are an idiot.
