Our Facebook fans probably aren’t excited about this, but the trailers for the latest adaptations of two beloved novels are out.
First came the trailer for the Netflix version of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.
The film, which comes out October 21, stars Arnie Hammer as Maxim de Winter, Lily James as the second Mrs. de Winter, and Kristen Scott Thomas as Mrs. Danvers.
You can watch the Rebecca trailer below or also on Literary Hub, where Dan Sheehan poses a few stylistic questions to fellow viewers.
Next came the trailer for Dune, which is expected in theaters on December 18.
This version of Frank Herbert's epic sci-fi classic is the first of two films and stars Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Zendaya as Chani, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, and Stellan Skarsgård as Vladimir Harkonnen.
Watch the trailer below or head over to Twitter.
Also returning to the small screen: William Shakespeare.
Deadline reports that Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner, who used the Brothers Grimm tales as inspiration for the modern-day cop drama Grimm, will contribute to NBC’s The Stratford.
The Stratford is a one-hour drama in which the characters are updated versions of Shakespeare’s creations; it follows a young man searching for his father’s killer.
