First trailer and one sheet for My Cousin Rachel arrives online

Fox Searchlight have recently released their first trailer and one sheet for Roger Michell's (Notting Hill) My Cousin Rachel.

Adapted from Daphne Du Maurier's novel, which was previously adapted for the big screen in back 1952 and by the BBC in 1983, My Cousin Rachel follows Philip (Sam Claflin), an orphan who is used to living a happy life with his cousin and guardian, Ambrose. But when Ambrose is off on one of his health related holidays, he reports back that he has fallen for the mysterious Rachel (Rachel Weisz), a distant relation, the tone of his letters starts to change and Philip decides to go and investigate. Yet he underestimates the power the beautiful Rachel will have over him...

Roger Michell's film takes both the book (with a script by the director himself) and ideas from the original film, but this first trailer represents more of the mood of the thing than much of the plot.

With Holliday Grainger (Cinderella) and Iain Glen (Game Of Thrones) also in the cast, My Cousin Rachel will be out in the UK on 9 June.
