Must-See Movies 2012 starring Austen Actors

All these Austen Actors (from various and  6 different Austen adapted TV and films: Pride & Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, and Northanger Abbey as well as other Austen inspired films: Becoming Jane, The Jane Austen Book Club, Lost In Austen, From Prada to Nada, etc.) all have new movies coming out this year. Usually, I would just post about the Must-See TV & films starring P&P (2005) Actors (as after all, this blog is all about them and the P&P movie I love so much) but I like most of these other Austen Actors (ie. Emily Blunt, Anne Hathaway, James McAvoy, Kate Winslet, Hugh Dancy, etc.) too. They are Austen related after all, and  being a big movie aficionado that I am, I couldn’t help but notice that a lot of Austen Actors are in so many new films coming out this year (even in the past and previous years). I always see trailers and TV spots whenever I watch a movie in theaters or on TV and online, and there’s always at least one (or two) Austen actor starring or co-starring in a film or television show. So, I thought I’d (try to) compile here a list of AA actors with new films or TV Movies/mini-series that they’re starring/co-starring that are coming out this year.

Here’s a very long list starting with films (starring/co-starring our favorite Austen Actors) currently showing in theaters now (for instance, a well-known Austen actor co-stars in the current #1 film at the box-office in America, Contraband with Mark Wahlberg and has a new movie, Underworld: Awakening opening in theaters today as well…) to films coming out soon and are scheduled to be released every month of this year (except for October…though release dates are subject to change).
