Keira Knightley, Jude Law In Anna Karenina Character Posters

Joe Wright’s adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina is pulling back its curtains for European audiences as we speak. The film will open in the UK and Ireland later this week, targets the Toronto Film Festival next, and finally will reach U.S. theaters in November. Check local listings for Focus Features’ roll out.

In the meantime, we have gorgeous and stately character posters for you to enjoy. We know, we know. It’s not the film. But that will be here soon enough. Until then, posters, via IMP Awards:

Russian literature might not float your boat, but we remain excited for Karenina because of Wright’s previous collaborations with lithe, beautiful leading lady Keira Knightley. They reinvented Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, then found heat in a steamy pre-war affair on the wrenching Atonement. Wright has been exploring new genres since, going modern for the American-rooted The Soloist, then testing Bond-ish waters for the spy thriller Hanna.

He’s back in period-garb territories, and brings Knightley along for the ride. We’ll be able to see Anna Karenina at the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend, so expect in-depth reports from TIFF on Wright’s latest. For now, what do you think of the posters? Do they get you excited for the eventual film?
