The actress stars alongside Jeremy Irvine and Ralph Fiennes in Mike Newell's adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic.

When you need to cast a "Miss Havisham," there is perhaps none better to portray the eccentric spinster than Helena Bonham Carter.

The actress, whose real-life wardrobe is as famously off-kilter as that of the fictional Charles Dickens character, debuts in the role in a new international trailer for Mike Newell's adaptation of Great Expectations.

The film will screen next month at the Toronto International Film Festival and does not yet have a release date. Ralph Fiennes, Robbie Coltrane, Holliday Grainger and Jeremy Irvine of War Horse fame also star.
