Movies – New Trailer for “Far from the Madding Crowd” starring Carey Mulligan

Fox Searchlight Pictures has released a new trailer for the upcoming drama, Far from the Madding Crowd. Based on the novel by Thomas Hardy, this story has been around since 1874 and is set in Victorian era England.

This is not the first time that Hardy’s classic novel has been adapted for the screen. MGM released a feature-length version back in 1967 and there was a TV movie distributed by PBS in 1998.

Here is a synopsis (via IMDb) for those unfamiliar with the story: “In Victorian England, the independent and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer; Frank Troy, a reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and mature bachelor.”

Starring Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen, Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge and Juno Temple, this updated version will surely delight fans of the recent film adaptations of Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility.

Far from the Madding Crowd will be hitting theaters May 1:

    I saw this trailer the other day and thought it looked amazing! I’m not familiar with this this novel but I like some of his other works. 😀

      Definitely looking forward to seeing it on the big screen! Would also be interested in reading more of Thomas Hardy’s work.

        I loved the BBC production of his novel, Under the Greenwood Tree, as well as the latest Tess of the D’Urbervilles. 😀
