The Newest Lizzie and Darcy


The trailer is now available for the new Pride & Prejudice movie coming September 23rd. After watching it, I'm just not sure how I feel about it. It's so different from my beloved A&E DVD but it is Jane so I'm sure I'll muddle through somehow.

Thoughts on the Trailer:
  • Could the Bennets not afford a brush for poor Lizzie?
  • I thought the newest Mr. Collins looked kinda cute.
  • Lady Catherine De Bourgh scares me.
  • Why, why, why are Lizzie and Darcy about to kiss when she rejects his proposal?!
  • "From the Producers of Bridget Jones' Diary and Love Actually" doesn't really make me want to like this movie.
  • That is NOT my Mr. Darcy!
  • Lizzie, dear, you need a sandwich.

Thanks for posting the link for us. I too agree that Lizzy needs a brush and more food. Mr. Darcy does not seem to command the same respect as the Mr. Darcy of A&E. I am a big fan of Dame Judi Dench though, so I eagerly await the opening of the movie to see what they do with it. :)

Yes, I like Dame Judi Dench, too. She really was intimidating to me in this trailer. I won't be laughing at her Lady Catherine De Bourgh as I do the A&E Lady C. I'm really sad because, after seeing this trailer, my Janeite children are refusing to see the movie with me. My husband won't go with me either as nothing will be blowing up in this movie. Plus, he avoids movies with costumes and accents like the Plague. So, I will either have to go alone or somehow bribe my kids to go with me. :(
