The Personal History of David Copperfield Trailer Reimagines a Classic with Dev Patel
Searchlight Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for The Personal History of David Copperfield. This new take on the Charles Dickens' favorite comes from director Armando Iannucci, best known for his work on HBO's Veep. It stars Dev Patel as the iconic character in what looks to be a very unique take on the tale. It certainly doesn't hurt matters that Iannucci has assembled an A-list ensemble to back up Oscar-nominee Patel, who is leading the way.

The trailer kicks off by showing us an adult David Copperfield on stage as played by Dev Patel, recounting some of the major events of his life to the crowd. We then flashback to his life as a young boy and follow him through key moments and adventures. The filmmakers have injected quite a bit of levity and dark humor into the story. Aside from that, one of the big takeaways is the production design.
