hi all new comer here!
just thought any fans would like to know that they were filming p and p in my home village of weekley a few weeks ago. we were informed by the locations manager that there would be disruption for a short while.they had built a huge archway (the entrance to catherine de burghs house) next to the cricket field where my son plays.
we went up on the first day and filming had just finished and we saw a few darkened cars leaving as we trapsed up to the village green.
they had re done a gated entrance to the boughton estate with a huge arch which was very impressive. we walked around the film set and met the horses that had been used that day. one for mr darcy and the other one had been used to pull the carriage that lizzy bennet arrives at the parsonage in. the other horse accorrding to the trainers was in a huff because it hadnt been used.(although it had been used previously for a john thaw programme;something mr tom??)
anyway the crew were complaining about the catering because they had to eat chicken curry on what was a really warm day!
on the third day i went up with my four year old daughter and as we approached the old alms house where they were filming in side and out, we decided to walk on the set because no one was about and as we did we saw a very sulky keira knightly walking in out direction with a crust of bread, i told my daughter that "that girl coming towards us was a big movie star" and as keira walked towards us my daughter said (very loudly) "whys that girl wearing a funny dress" keira knightley just looked at us and smiled but looked fed up she asked my daughter what she thought about them filming but georgie just said" my brother plays cricket here ." me meanwhile is thinking oh my god im talking to a movie star!
anyway they carried on filming the "proposal scene" inside the alms house till 12 midnight that friday night.
the following day we went up there to see them removing the archway and that evening i returned home with part of the archway for my living room!
anyway just thought i would let know any keira knightley fans out there about my experience with them filming on my doorstep and if anyone wants to buy a bit of arch way im open to offers hahaha lol
hope you can see my pics i took.
i did take my camera when i i met keira knightley but believe it or not i forgot i had it when i saw her!
sorry folks
from a big film fan with a non-appreciative daughter!

Shaun of the Dead hit on friday, and it's in the top 10 best reviewed films of the year on Movies.com, so I beg to differ that P&P will do like shit.
I'm probably not going to see it in theaters, but I'm definiatly seeing the Jacket, bet you'r bottom dollar i am.

Being a September release doesn't mean a film can't make money or become a surprise hit. It means the studio has no faith in it's ability to make money or become a surprise hit. By releasing a film in September, the studio is saying that it's cutting it's losses and preparing to take a beating from the critics. They don't think the leads will be able to pull in money/they don't know who the target audience is/the movie became a mess during production/bad early press... Any of those things can ensure a September release. Don't believe me? Look at some of the film's released this past month: Vanity Fair, Paparazzi, Wicker Park, Wimbledon, Mr. 3000, Cellular... there have been a few good ones this month but there have been even more bad ones.

All I'm saying is, if the studio is hinting at a September release, it isn't a good sign. I hope not though, I want this film to do well.

From Paul's keiraweb:
As if Jane Austen fans weren't infuriated enough about Working Title's version of Pride and Prejudice, the screenplay writer Lee Hall, speaking on BBC Radio 4's Front Row programme yesterday, admitted he had turned the novel into "a bit of a teen flick". If you're quick you can still catch the show online here. It looks at the enduring appeal of the novel and how different writers have adapted it from different viewpoints over the years.

Some people have now seen more or less finished versions of the movie.

This is the most detailed description

Sounds very promising. The review ends with

Overall, I’d give this movie probably 4 out of 5. For the most part, it was very faithful to the story and for the amount of time this movie had, it packed the most punch of the original Jane Austen script. The ending was perfect (that’s all I’m going to say about that). But this is truly Keira’s movie and her stunning performance should be award-winning. Trust me, this was a great movie.

A couple of other reactions. Both positive.

And an article (http://www.mailonsunday.co.uk/pages/live/articles/showbiz/bazbamigboye.html?in_article_id=334097&in_page_id=1794&in_a_source=) in The Mail on Sunday contained this:

Yet another of Keira's pictures, Pride And Prejudice, opens in the autumn. Those who have seen a rough cut of Joe Wright's film have told me it's a cracking movie - Keira and Matthew MacFadyen as Mr Darcy are said to be sublime.

02-02-2005, 12:12 PM
loved the book, loved the mini-series... now am looking forward to this version. Miss Knightley should be good in it.

10-02-2005, 04:35 PM
Another positive review from an early screening:

10-02-2005, 05:01 PM
thanks for the info :)

05-03-2005, 07:34 PM
Has anyone seen 'Pride and Prejudice' ?

05-03-2005, 07:38 PM
keira's one????

its not out yet

ice crystal
07-03-2005, 08:54 PM
it comes out august/september....so not many people will have seen it yet!

11-03-2005, 08:20 PM
I saw a sneak preview of Pride and Prejudice last night here in Kansas City. It was great! One of my top 5 favorite films. It was true to the book. Keira was really great.

11-03-2005, 08:59 PM
Could you elaborate? Just a little bit? Please?

30-03-2005, 06:59 PM
Is it just me, or are the costumes of the original novel being changed? Weird. I saw some pictures on a few sites and was totally disappointed. What happened to the Regency outfits and the high waistline dresses? Check out this site and see for yourself.
The outfits are being changed from the early 1800s to the 1700s. I don't like that at all. I especially don't like the puffy white wigs. I like the all natural early 1800s look. How about you all?
If they are to make this movie, please don't let them change the costume. Leave it just like the P&P movie starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.

30-03-2005, 07:01 PM
Hey Ksulaura, where did you see the sneak preview? I want to see it too. Please! Maybe you could share with us? Thanks!

30-03-2005, 07:46 PM
Is it just me, or are the costumes of the original novel being changed?
It's just you. If you actually read the novel you'll find next to no descriptions of the clothes being worn so how could they possibly have changed anything?

This new adaptation is apparently being set in the 1790s - which is when the novel was originally written - while the 1995 version was placed nearer the time it was first published (1813). So you shouldn't expect the costumes to be in exactly the same style.

But I also don't think too many conclusions should be drawn from paparazzi pictures of actores during their lunch breaks.

02-04-2005, 07:09 PM
The first Pride and Prejudice novel was however published in 1813, but even the clothing of the late 1700s weren't white wigs and puffy gowns. I understand that the book was written in the late 1700s, but even Jane Austen herself wore the high waisted gowns. I even have books of European fashion to show that the French Revolution changed the fashion sense during the late 1700s. Only the early and mid 1700s had the puffy gowns and wigs.
Anyway, why are the illustrations in the origianl book of the high waisted gowns and not the puffy gowns and wigs? The pictures are all regency style.

Entertainment Tonight played about half of the trailer on Friday's episode which has aired today in the UK:


30-05-2005, 06:44 PM
which ones are new?

01-06-2005, 09:17 AM
Here's the full trailer

Pride and Prejudice Trailer (http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/prideandprejudice.html)

01-06-2005, 08:52 PM
Keira looks great. :)

01-06-2005, 10:44 PM
as always! ;)

Just have seen 3 of her beautiful smiles :icon_redf
but lets hope for more, date of release is marked red at my calender ^^

01-06-2005, 10:52 PM
WOW! she looks great in that movie!

01-06-2005, 11:00 PM
Heh - the trailer's music is the theme from Love Actually :icon_bigg

I must say it looks great :) Pride & Prejudice is one of my favourite books, and it looks like they're relatively true to the story, and not screwing up in the acting department. Whee :icon_bigg

02-06-2005, 04:04 AM
Yeah Leonie's right, same theme from Love Actually. I like it, it's sort of uplifting.

And Keira does look great. I'd rather watch this than watch Domino. The Colin Firth miniseries version of P&P was alright, but it got a bit tedious after awhile. But this new version looks to be good.

02-06-2005, 12:22 PM
thats a quite impressive trailer, i've never liked period dramas, but after watching that trailer, i want to go see it.. it looks good. and the love actually music is quite an appropriate choice methinks.

08-06-2005, 03:41 AM
I like Keira in this film, she seems less dolled up. Her natural beauty shines through, much like in Dr. Zhivago. and BILB.

this is a movie I'd never see if Keira wasn't in it. But it's great that she's jumping around from role to role and trying new things. Won't get pidgeonholed that way and it will open people's eyes to her immense talents.

really a cutesy smile only took meg ryan so far...

17-06-2005, 05:52 PM
A longer, presumably final release, trailer is now available at Working Title:


and a photo gallery and synopsis page is up too:


23-06-2005, 02:15 AM
I was wondering if anyone had a lot of HQ Matthew MacFadyen pictures from this movie? I can't wait to see this movie, Keira should be great in it! Thanks!:)

23-06-2005, 08:47 AM
Why is the same song in this trailer as in all their other ones? This movie looks long, boring, unorganized, unoriginal, and miscast. I*ll be seeing it for Judi Dench

The UK premiere of Pride and Prejudice is now confirmed for Monday 5th September at either the Odeon or Empire cinema in Leicester Square.

The world premiere may be at the Venice Film Festival, Italy in late August.


30-06-2005, 02:25 AM

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY was terrified about playing heroine ELIZABETH BENNET in the new film version of JANE AUSTEN'S classic novel PRIDE AND PREJUDICE - because it's such an important role for her.

Despite starring alongside Hollywood greats like JOHNNY DEPP and describing the part as "every girl's dream", the 20-year-old British actress insists she is still daunted.

The BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM star says, "There is a huge pressure taking on a role like Elizabeth Bennet but it's one of the best roles in literature for girls, so if you get a chance to play her, you definitely can't say no.

"But equally it is scary because when you read Pride and Prejudice you sort of feel like you own her. I know I did."

Anyone know where I can get my mitts on the Pride and Prejudice poster (only just linked on Keiraweb.com)? I usually use moviemarket.co.uk, but 1) they don't have it, and 2) generally take ages to get new posters in.

Any help is much appreciated- especially if the company is UK based.

22-07-2005, 07:48 PM
I *really* like the poster, the whole athmosphere just suits the story. I wants. Anyone finding a UK based poster shipping company that's willing to send posters this way, feel free to let me know :icon_bigg

29-07-2005, 08:42 PM
Quick update on the release date merry-go-round:

UK is still 16th September, with the premiere still down for the 5th in London. PG rated.

US release is November 18th on limited screens, going wider on the 23rd, then wider again on December 2nd and 9th. PG-13 rated.

More dates and updates:

I've been sent a nice big version of the UK poster, which you can download here:

And there's a scene from the movie now online - the dance, where Lizzie first sees Darcy:

There are four clips available in total:

And in RealPlayer if you prefer:



19-08-2005, 08:02 AM
I just saw the trailer! I am so excited. I read the book a long time ago, and I could never picture another girl as Lizzie Bennet (even though there were other movies).

19-08-2005, 01:41 PM
Can someone please post the 2 trailers and the 4 videos in windows media player format? please? I'm kinda making a music video about the film. thanks.

19-08-2005, 03:24 PM
The four clips, but only one of the trailers:


19-08-2005, 06:05 PM
Thanks for taking your time and posting the videos, is very nice of you but they don't work for me, i can't import them to the windows movie maker, any ideas?

19-08-2005, 06:15 PM
I guess you'd want the straight wmv files for that:


19-08-2005, 07:17 PM
WOW!. Thanks! :)

If you make a music video, post it please?

The SAG arranged a screening of P&P yesterday followed by a Q&A with Keira.

There's an account of the event on this (http://www.djdchronology.com/prideandprejudice2005.htm) Judi Dench fan site.
And two others can be found neat the end of this page (http://www.websitetoolbox.com/tool/post/johnnydeppreads/vpost?id=607432).

There's some quite interesting behind-the-scenes stuff in there, imo. Such as a story about Donald Sutherland and a gas mask...

17-09-2005, 12:51 AM
Working Title sent out four different clips to four web sites today and my site was one of them (how kind!). MSN, Wanadoo and Matthew MacFadyen Online were the others. You can see the clip under September 16th news. It's from The Pride & Prejudice Diaries behind the scenes documentary which I already have online in full, but there's a choice of different downloads/file sizes with the official clip.

I've also put up more clips from reviews shows tonight, and a report from Chatsworth House (Pemberley) which revealed that those of you outside Europe will be getting the 'happy couple on the balcony' ending, while those of us in Europe get the novel's Mr. Bennet ending. Quite why there's a need for two endings I don't know.

I've added a lot more rave reviews from the British press

and you can even send me your own review when you get back from the cinema, which I'll put online.

Not sure if this will break box office records this weekend, but I've never before seen more positive buzz about a Keira movie than this one.


19-09-2005, 09:19 AM
Variety reports a debut at No.1 in the UK, with $4.6m, about £2.6m.
Full figures out tomorrow.

Told you so! Told you so!

I think it's a brilliant film, it really is. The acting is good, the story is good, the casting was even, yes, good. Fantastic film.

21-09-2005, 08:39 AM
I don't know how the recent Evening Standard free film tickets this week offer is adding to film sales... is it going by tickets sold, or money made? Do the government (who are doing this free film offer with TFL) pay the cost of the ticket?

Its a good film, and deserves to make money.
Oh, the houses are the coolest things in the world.

26-09-2005, 07:20 PM
Pride & Prejudice has held on to its No.1 place in the UK Box Office for a second week, adding another US$3.5m and fighting off strong new entries from Revolver and Land Of The Dead. It also opened well in the Netherlands, taking US$275,000 across 50 screens. Total tally is now US$12m in just two countries in just 10 days. The movie opens in Iceland, Switzerland and Poland this weekend.


26-09-2005, 08:52 PM
I saw the movie last weekend in a advance showing. Keira's performance in one word: Brilliant - no more, no less. Definitely her best performance to date.
Unfortunately the movie was not really my thing. It was not bad, for sure better than King Arthur, but I have already seen better films than Pride & Prejudice :( .

Pride stays top of UK box office

Knightley plays Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice, starring Keira Knightley, has held on to the top spot of the UK film charts for a third week.
Highly-praised graphic novel adaptation A History of Violence opened at number two, with soccer film Goal in at three.

Guy Ritchie's much-maligned movie Revolver dropped six places to eighth overall, taking 59% less in ticket sales than in its debut week.

Pride and Prejudice, which also stars Matthew Macfadyen, has now taken almost £10m at the box office in three weeks.

There were only two other new films in the top 10 - crime drama Four Brothers, starring Mark Wahlberg, entered the chart in fourth spot while comedy Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo took ninth position.

A History of Violence is being tipped by some critics for Oscar success next year.

Directed by David Cronenberg and starring Viggo Mortensen, it tells the tale of a family man whose past catches up with him.


'A History of Violence' storms the London chart
The David Cronenberg thriller is a new entry at number one.

Former Time Out film of the week 'A History of Violence' was a new entry at the top of the London box office chart at the weekend.

David Cronenberg's brilliant thriller took in an impressive £151,672 from 23 screens, which was easily enough to knock Keira Knightley's 'Pride & Prejudice' from the top spot.

Below them, animated epic 'Howl's Moving Castle' remained stationary at number three, while John Singleton's action thriller 'Four Brothers' was a new entry at number four.

Further down the chart, 'The 40 Year-Old Virgin' and 'Crash' exchanged places at positions five and six, while not even David Beckham's cameo (click here to see that) could save footy flick 'Goal!' from an inauspicious debut at number seven.

Rounding out the chart, Guy Ritchie's woeful 'Revolver' sank like a stone from two to eight, while horror gems 'Land of the Dead' and 'Wolf Creek' fell to nine and ten respectively.

Next week, expect sci-fi spectaculars 'Serenity' and 'Night Watch' to set the top of the chart alight, while Roman Polanski's 'Oliver Twist' should also find a sizeable audience.


eh? how does that work? both charts were relased less that 2 hours ago :S?

edit: found another one

"Pride" beats "Violence" at UK box office
London | October 04, 2005 10:32:58 PM IST

''Pride and Prejudice'' stayed atop the UK box office charts for the third week running, beating off ocmpetition from David Cronenberg's acclaimed ''A History of Violence'', Screen International said today.
The adaptation of Jane Austen's novel starring Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen grossed 1.47 million at the box office last weekend.

''A History of Violence'', a subversive thriller starring Viggo Mortensen as a family man whose rural American idyll is shatterered by a killing, entered the charts in second position.

Newcomer ''Goal'', about a young American kid's dream to become the best soccer player in the world, entered the charts at number 3.

''Four Brothers'', starring Mark Wahlberg as one of four siblings out to avenge their mother's death, was another newcomer at number four.

George A Romero's zombie movie ''Land of the Dead'' slipped two to fifth position, while romantic comedy ''The 40 Year Old Virgin'', starring Steve Carell, slipped two to sixth.

''The Longest Yard'', a remake of the prisoners versus guards classic starring Adam Sandler, was two spots lower at number seven.

Guy Ritchie's thriller ''Revolver'', panned by the critics, dropped to eight after a brief spell near the top at number 2.

''Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo'', starring Rob Schneider, made its debut at number 9, while ''Charlie and the Chococate Factory'' dropped to 10 from number 7 after 10 weeks in the top 10


so christ knows which is top

"Domino (Keira Knightley, soon to win an Oscar nomination for "Pride and Prejudice," sees an ad for a bounty-hunting course run by a bail bondsman named Claremont Williams (Delroy Lindo) and his top hunters, Ed Mosbey (Mickey Rourke) and Choco (Edgar Ramirez)."
--From Roger Ebert's review of Domino

The world's most renown movie critic has predicted an Oscar nomination for Keira. Seems as if it's finally her year!

24-10-2005, 12:49 PM
I saw it tonight and think it's wonderful. The actor who played Mr Darcy is perfect for the part, Keira is amazing in it too. I wished the movie had finished on Elizabeth and Mr Darcy though. I can't beleive there is a version where they kiss, why didn't they make that the official ending? That would have fitted perfectly. I can't wait to see it on the DVD. I can't wait to see the whole movie again.

I went to see Pride and Prejudice the other week. I thought it was excellent. kiera was absolutely superb. She couldn't of done beta if she tried.

28-10-2005, 08:46 AM
Yes she is the one and only Lizzie Bennet. And Mathew MacFadyen is the one and only Mr Darcy. :)

Yay! I'm so happy it's coming soon to San Antonio & Houston! I can't wait.

Pride & Prejudice has debuted at No.10 in its first week at the US box office, taking $2.8m across just 215 screens, that's $13,000 per cinema. A brilliant debut, and bodes well for the 23rd.


14-11-2005, 02:08 AM
I didn't really like this movie. I saw it Friday and I wasn't impressed. I mean, Keira's acting was great and everything, but it sort of annoyed me that they tried to make her look plain and downplay her beauty--and I'm not talking about the costumes. I don't know what it was, maybe it was her hair style or the camera angles or something, but her neck and chin looked really weird and I was sort of upset about that. But maybe it was just upsetting to me because Keira is the only reason I saw the movie. Im definitely NOT a fan of the book (was forced to read it against my will last year for English) and so the only reason I saw the movie is because I'm hugely infatuated with Keira. And then there they are trying to downplay her beautiful. Tsk tsk tsk. It was disapointing.

You can add my $8.50 to that pot. Saw it last night at 9:30 and there were probably 20 people in the theater. It's only playing on two screens in the Bay Area.
It was a fantastic film. I imagine it will get several Oscar nods, including a best actress for Miss Knightley. Yes, she is that good. She might even win the little fella. I figure it will garner nods in all of the acting categories, Actor/Actress and Supporting Actor/Actress. Donald Sutherland was fantastic, but Keira really stole the show.
It was kind of jarring to see Penelope Wilton in a period piece, since the last film I saw her in was Shaun of the Dead.

I absolutely adored this film. Keira was wonderful; the entire cast was superb. The story was just beautiful. I think that Jane Austen would be thrilled with this portrayal of her famed novel.

She most certainly deserves it. You go girl...............

she definately has a chance. the bbc miniseries was an emmys darling, so this film has a shot.

i have read the book and i thought the film was fine. keira was extremely good in it. and i understand that they downplayed her beauty to try and stay true to the character of elizabeth who is suppossed to be beautiful but "not handsome enough" to tempt darcy, except for her eyes. he falls in love with her because of her eyes and her intelligence. and the fact that she loathes him.

This was a really great movie, It was just like the book, and they hardly took anything out, and Keira acted wonderfully.

I disliked the kiss at the end in the US version, it so does not fit the tone of the movie.

31-12-2005, 06:41 AM
My sentiments exactly. I hated the kiss! I wish they would've ended the movie after Elizabeth asked for her father's blessing to marry Mr. D.

I think that the kiss was a good ending to the movie. Mr. Darcy was harbouring a love for Lizzie since the moment he looked into her eyes. SO the kiss was meant to show how much he loved her. It was there because in the movie you could not see how much Mr. Darcy loved her until he asked her to marry him the first time. The kiss added to the point that love does prevail even in the most unlikely of situations.

The kiss was not a good ending because it was completely contrary to the message of the book.

but i didn't see the kiss!!!! in the version i saw, there is no kiss!what a pity!!!liz and darcy just hand in hand and they touched each other with foreheads!!

03-02-2006, 11:43 AM
i want to see the kiss in the end!!!!!

03-02-2006, 07:27 PM
holy crap.

They used different endings in different countries. In England they went for a more sedate ending, while feeling that American audiences needed to be smashed over the head with the romance. Thus, American audiences were treated to a kiss at the end.

Move to America if you want to see that ending, and have a read of the forum rules. (http://www.kkwavefront.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=2)
