    New Images From Joe Wright's 'Anna Karenina' Starring Keira Knightley, Aaron Johnson & More

    This fall will see director Joe Wright seemingly return to the comfort zone of lit adaptations with Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina," which reunites him with his "Atonement" star Keira Knightley in the titular role. Another period drama you ask? Not quite. Wright has s...

    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.

    Earlier in the year, the tepid box office returns were something to be ignored, as 2011 was competing with the previous year, with both “Avatar” and then the anomaly of “Alice In Wonderland” each raking in a cool billion. Well, it’s April, and it’s time for Hollywood to panic. There have been no genuine out-of-the-box hits so far this year and lots of flops, and the two (barely) $100 million grossers considered underperformers (“Rango” and “Just Go With It”). Let’s face it, part of it is a failure of marketing, but the blame must be laid on inadequate product. Even when it comes to the early year doldrums, this has been a banner year for garb...
