Watch: Beautifully Haunting Trailer for 'Wuthering Heights'

Wuthering Heights is one of those classic literary titles that continuously gets re-adapted for the big screen every few years. The last time the book took the leap into theaters was in 1992 when Juliette Binoche and Ralph Fiennes played Catherine and Heathcliffe. A TV adapation starring Tom Hardy and Charlotte Riley was the most recent overall adaptation, airing in 2009 to solid reviews.

So could Andrea Arnold, who wrote and directed the screenplay add something that would separate this version from all the rest. Judging from this hauntingly beautiful trailer that premiered on Vulture, it looks like she has succeeded in stamping her own style to the Emily Bronte novel.

This time around James Howson and Kaya Scodelario take on the Heathcliffe and Catherine roles, respectively. Wait, who? Howson is making his feature film acting debut with this film, but Scodelario has been around for a few years. She starred in Ducan Jones' excellent Moon and starred in British dramedy Skins for three years.

Wuthering Heights has been making the film festival rounds for a year now, having premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September 2011. Throughout the year, it has gradually premiered in various countries around the world and will finally arrive in limited U.S. theaters on October 5.
