Watch Helena Bonham Carter Play Miss Havisham In the New Great Expectations

When it was announced that Helena Bonham Carter would be playing Miss Havisham in Mike Newell's remake of Great Expectations, it seemed like perfect casting: Who better to don Havisham's desiccated wedding dress than the actress who'd probably wear that on a red carpet without batting an eye? In the States, the movie is festival-bound with no release date yet, but an international trailer has appeared online; it's not the most impressively cut tease in the world, but still, it gives you Bonham Carter–as–Havisham in motion, her hair wild and wedding tulle akimbo. Soak it all up.
