The first trailer for the reimagined version of Jane Austen’s classic, “Emma,” was just released. The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy, the third actress to play Austen’s beloved character on the big screen (Judy Campbell played Emma in 1948, and Gwyneth Paltrow also did in her Oscar-winning role in 1996).
The new movie was directed by newcomer Autumn de Wilde, and also stars Johnny Flynn, Bill Nighy, Mia Goth, and Callum Turner. The story follows Emma through romantic relationships as she searches for love.
Emma opens February 21 in limited release. Watch the first trailer at the link here.
