It’s quite a common thing that when a popular show is still in demand, a movie gets made. Rarely does the film live-up to the show, but given that Downton Abbey is based in history, it’s not so hard to believe that it’s upcoming film might be of some quality. Course, the teaser trailer doesn’t really indicate any of that, simply showing the popular sets re-shot now with cinema-quality cameras and a fancier version of the show’s logo at the end:
Clearly this will be a movie for the fans of the show more than anything and hopefully they will be rewarded with a splendid period piece. But they’ll have to wait quite a bit as the film won’t hit theaters till September 13th in the UK and September 20th in the US.
Downton Abbey is directed by Michael Engler.
