Director Cary Fukunaga’s take on the naturally dark Charlotte Brontë tale looks like a supernatural thriller to those unfamiliar with the real cause of unexplained events at Thornfield: Love it. Alice in Wonderland‘s Mia Wasikowska takes the title role, while Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds, Jonah Hex) is Edward Rochester, her employer with a secret. From the spooky music, to the foreboding dialogue delivered by Dame Judi Dench, to Rochester’s phantom-like black eyes — it all works. Watch the trailer below.
