'The Duchess' Trailer

The Duchess trailer is up!

Keira Knightley plays Georgina, Duchess of Devonshire, a controversial real-life figure from the 18th century. She has an affair with Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey (Dominic Cooper).

“You can’t ask me to battle nature and my own heart!” Keira exclaims in the trailer. And yes, ladies, there’s a shirtless scene of Dominic making out with Keira!

Pictures of Keira and Dominic filming on the set of The Duchess can be found here, here and here.

Watch the The Duchess trailer below or at Moviefone! The film is set for a Fall 2008 release. Bigger promo pic inside…

    FYI, it’s Georgiana, not Georgina (a simple typo?)……. it will be interesting to see how Hollywood has treated this story. In this case, reality is more fascinating than fiction — Georgiana was licentious; her husband a libertine. Both had children by others and all ended up living happily together, though Georgiana died relatively young.

  • cassie

    shes so pretty!

  • Jill

    She is soooo ugly! I hate her!!!!!!

  • Anoymous

    I smell more Oscar Buzz.

  • Orange Clockwork

    I’m sick of Kierra and her period pieces. Ralph Fiennes (who should be listed up there as part of the cast) couldn’t even pull me into this one.

  • Helena

    You hate someone because you think she’s ugly (that alone makes you pathetic)!

  • Keira fan

    Gorgeous! It looks amazing – I can’t wait!

  • coffeecakes

    Looks boring as hell.


  • Georgiana

    Her name was spelled Georgiana, but pronounced Georgeena.

  • KC

    Oh Joy Keira in another costume drama. Typecast much?

    It looks boring.

  • Sinna

    I would love to see her in something other than a period piece. Maybe a romantic comedy or something light hearted and fun. Doesn’t she get tired of wearing those dreadful corsets. She better be careful of being type cast like a certain ex-wife.

  • regm

  • jen

    she should be in another movie with natalie portman. they should play sisters!

  • sizz

    looks awesome!

    Keira rocks and is beautiful..people that hate on her are just pathetic and jealous!

  • Olivia

    Great. Keira in another period piece. Can she do anything else?

  • lyla

    i think shes better then all the other actors of her generation and period pieces are beautiful and so is she, cant wait!

  • ju

    when i watch the trailer i just see elisabeth swann! same dresses same face…

  • Jon

    She *does* look like Elizabeth Swann.

    She needs to back away from the period pieces. I’ve heard her mentioned for basically every period piece from the last four years but not a single modern film. Typecast, totally.

    If I see her in another p.p. as an unusually modern heroine, I’m going to be sick. It’s boring.

    As for the film itself? It’s not showing us anything we haven’t seen in virtually every other p.p. ever made. Probably going to be dull.

  • Emee

    This could have been a good film but even from the trailer I get the impression it will be pretty stupid in places. I know one of the historians who advised on the film and seems they didn’t take her advice much, Kierra isn’t even walking like a duchess just slouching along into the hall like she’s bored with it all…and pouting again. I don’t really think she’s that brill an actress but the costumes and sets seem amazing…that might be enough to make me watch it. I agree with Jon above, she keeps playing these women who are weirdly modern.
    She looks just like elizabeth swan in this. I just hope it won’t be as awful as Pride and Prejudice, great book but the film was horrible.

  • yop

    in this pic keira looks like helena bonham carter

  • Liz

    i actually have really high hopes for this one. ralph fiennes tends to pick pretty good movies and the storyline is really fascinating.

    plus, it’s being put out by paramount vantage, who gave us some of last year’s best movies (No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, Into the Wild, The Kite Runner), so there’s a good chance that this one will be a hit rather than a miss.
