Dorian Grey trailer.


Literary fans (or anyone forced to read the book in high school) will notice that the full title has been shortened in this film adaptation. The joke is that this whole trailer is built around 'the shocking revelation' in regards to just what it is that keeps Mr. Grey so young. While this somewhat amped-up variation is relatively uninteresting (although revamping it as a horror film isn't the worst idea), I am curious to know whether the film actually goes for most of its length without revealing 'the secret'. Truth be told, I had the same problem when I first read The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in middle school. The entire story is structured around the shocking climactic reveal that in fact Jekyll and Hyde are the same person. Needless to say, that's pretty common knowledge so the book loses much of its suspense as a result. Anyway, Dorian Grey will be released on September 9th, 2009.
