Another featurette for Joe Wright's Anna Karenina (starring former Pride & Prejudice stars Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen) has been released as it's opening in the UK two days from now.

This is a short featurette, but a really nice one with more Matthew & Keira (with director Joe Wright)!!!! A nice behind the scenes moment with our trio (the train scene) as well as Joe Wright talking about working with Keira and how he might work with her again. Keira talked about Joe Wright as well. Producers Paul Webster and Tim Bevan talked about working with Keira since Pride & Prejudice.

Watch it below (including some nice screen captures I made of Keira & Matthew as well as KK & JW)...

The London World Premiere of Joe Wright's Anna Karenina (starring former Pride & Prejudice stars Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen) was held today and I was able to see the action at this webcam. Plus lots of awesome people on twitter were sharing lots of AK premiere photos.

Two new 'Anna Karenina' production stills featuring Keira Knightley

Just posted the compiled Early 'Anna Karenina' Film Reviews, and I found two new production stills of Joe Wright's Anna Karenina (starring former Pride & Prejudice stars Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen) featuring Keira Knightley as the title character via UK's Vogue, who just posted their Anna Karenina review. I don't know if they like the movie or not, but there doesn't seem to be a mention of Keira and Matthew's AK performances if they liked their performances or not, so I didn't include the review on the compiled reviews of AK.

Anyway, I noticed and got distracted more of these two newstills of Keira Knightley as the title role Anna Karenina than reading their review of the film, lol. Too bad, there's still no official production stills released of Matthew as Oblonsky (just trailer and BTSscreen caps)...not even a character poster? of not just him, but other supporting cast of this film too. Focus Features, why ever not?

Early 'Anna Karenina' Film Reviews

Some early critics film reviews for Joe Wright's Anna Karenina (starring former Pride & Prejudice stars Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen) has come out early ahead of its UK Cinema release this Friday, September 7th. Two months later in November (16th), it'll open in select US Theaters!

For now, lets focus on its UK Cinema release and some of the early reviews for this film are great, rave reviews (thus far) and a few other not so good reviews (ie. Digital Spy obviously does not like Keira Knightley, but whatever floats that harsh reviewer's boat...was her opinion and does not mean Keira's performance wasn't good because others clearly saw different than what she saw of her had good to rave reviews of her performance in AK), which is expected with JW's bold approach on the titular AK adaptation, it'll be divisive (people will either love it or don't...but that's how it usually is for most movies anyway, you can't please everyone no matt…
