Emma trailer: Anya-Taylor Joy stars in this classic Jane Austen comedy

There's certainly no shortage of films about Jane Austen, or of features adapted from one of her works. Emma is another due to arrive early next year, adapted from the book of the same name first published in 1815. Anya-Taylor Joy stars in the lead role, an actress who has continued to impress in films like The Witch, Split and Thoroughbreds. She's been gradually moving into bigger budgets films of late and another strong turn could see her become a more prominent feature in the big leagues. There's a definite The Favourite vibe about the trailer and it looks like it could be good fun. Watch the trailer for Emma above.

Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending, is re-imagined in this delicious new film adaptation of Emma. Handsome, clever, and rich, Emma Woodhouse is a restless queen bee without rivals in her sleepy little town. In this glittering satire of social class and the pain of growing up, Emma must adventure through misguided matches and romantic missteps to find the love that has been there all along.

Autumn de Wilde (great name) directs a cast starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Johnny Flynn, Bill Nighy, Mia Goth, Miranda Hart, Gemma Whelan, Josh O’Connor and Callum Turner.

Emma opens in UK cinemas on 14 February, 2020 and in the US on 21 February, 2020.
