A first look at Helena Bonham Carter as a corpse bride in Great Expectations

Nov. 4, 2011by:

Alright, alright, so she’s not ACTUALLY a corpse bride, but this photoshoot certainly puts her about three degrees away from one.

They’re the first official images out of GREAT EXPECTATIONS, where Bonham Carter is playing the central role of Miss Havisham. The reason for the wedding dress is that she’s a bit batty, and likes to sit in her moldy mansion wearing the same outfit she wore when she was jilted at the altar.

The film is being helmed by PRINCE OF PERSIA and HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE director Mike Newell, and also stars another HP alum, Ralph Fiennes, along with a bunch more Brits most of you wouldn’t recognize.

Two pictures of the mourning former bride below:

Extra Tidbit: I was shocked to see Tim Burton wasn't involved in the least.

She's an incredible actress and

would nail this role. If this is coming out in the next couple of months, Michelle Williams has some serious competition for that Best Actress Oscar.

Looks good

Dear Manos, I think we have enough normal bitches, as you say, in the (yawn) film industry. I celebrate her kookiness. Good for her.

How about A Room With a View, Lady Jane, Hamlet, Howards End, Frankenstein, Mighty Aphrodite, Twelfth Night, Merlin, Fight Club, Henry VIII, Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Enid, Terminator Salvation and The King's Speech? There's a reason why this "bitch" has been working solidly since the age of 17 and it ain't Tim Burton. Hint: it's because she's a great actress.
