The international teaser trailer for Dorian Gray has been released, through ShockTillYouDrop.com. Directed by Oliver Parker and starring both Ben Barnes and Colin Firth, the film is an adaptation of the 1890 classic, written by Oscar Wilde. The story focuses around the titular person who revels in his hedonistic lifestyle, heedless of the consequences that it has for his immortal soul, reflected in a portrait made of him by Basil Hallward, which grows uglier and more decrepit as he stays youthful and vivacious. The trailer has been embedded below.
Dorian Gray is released on 9 September 2009. The title has been adapted for film over 20 times, and has inspired countless theatrical productions and musical compositions, as well as served as a primary influence in many other forms of entertainment.
