The Picture of Dorian Gray (2009) trailer



Just a teaser trailer but I am loving the feel of this. Out of all the book-to-screen adaptations I've seen the trailers for recently, this is the one I'm the most excited about. <3

It looks so sexy and British and suave and ... (I swear, I'm describing the film not the actor) ... dark and gothic and ... wow. I'm going to read the book again before this comes out. I'm currently using the book as a mousemat ... but I'm going to read it anyway. :-D

This is the kind of 'dark, brooding monster' teen girls should be lusting after ... not frickin' Edward Cullen!!!

Wow, cool preview! My sister-in-law has been trying to get me to read the book for awhile now, I didn't really know what it was about. Based on that preview I totally want to read it now! Thanks for posting!

Kath - I'd definitely give it a go of reading if I were you. :-D

Amanda - I did a look around and it looks like it will come out in the US but no date has been announced yet (which sucks) :-S

Taschima - I didn't know either. I just stumbled upon this :-D How awesome, right? hehe.

Welcome to the blog then :-D I'm gonna go check out yours too.

Amanda said...

Well that's good news, then. I didn't know. Yay! Hopefully it will come. It looks fantastic.

Ceri said...

Amanda - Definitely. We can't let you guys miss it. As it's British made, it's probably just waiting for an American distributor :-)

Joanne said...

LOL @ your Edward snark! Thanks for posting this trailer, it looks fantastic. And the set locations look gorgeous. It's very nice to see they've chosen a lesser known actor for the lead.

Ceri said...

Joanne - I agree. There's not one thing about this film that I'm not excited about. :-D And a lesser known actor for Dorian was a great choice.
