Anna Karenina as "Oscar Bait"

Focus' real player, however, is Joe Wright's fourth film with the mini-major, "Anna Karenina." The adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's classic tale features an all-star cast including Knightley (her third film with Wright), Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Emily Watson and Olivia Williams.  The subject matter, the cast and Wright's pedigree ("Atonement," "Pride & Prejudice," "Hanna") will make "Karenina" one of the most anticipated films of 2012.  No pressure Joe.
