You may watch below the first official trailer of The Personal History of David Copperfield, the upcoming period drama comedy movie directed by Armando Iannucci from a script he co-wrote with Simon Blackwell based on a novel by Charles Dickens and starring Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi, Ben Whishaw, Paul Whitehouse, and Gwendoline Christie:
THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD
“An avid Dickens fan, Armando Iannucci (the award-winning writer/director of The Thick of It, In the Loop, Veep and The Death of Stalin) adapts here, alongside frequent collaborator Simon Blackwell, employing his comedic mastery and vivid characterizations to bring to life one of Dickens’ most cherished characters in THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD. From birth to infancy, from adolescence to adulthood, the good-hearted David Copperfield is surrounded by kindness, wickedness, poverty and wealth, as he meets an array of remarkable characters in Victorian England. As David sets out to be a writer, in his quest for family, friendship, romance and status, the story of his life is the most seductive tale of all.”
Tilda Swinton looks crazy, lol. Anyway, funny period movie ahead!
