Dame Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville and More Featured in 'Downton Abbey' Movie Posters

We're nearing the final stretch, with the Downton Abbey movie premiering in September. The official DA Twitter page has shared character posters for some of our favorite nobles:


From left to right, Dame Maggie Smith returns as Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham. She's seen seated with her granddaughter, Lady Mary Josephine Talbot standing by her side, played by Michelle Dockery.

Lady Mary's parents, Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham and his wife Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, are seen to the right, portrayed by Hugh Bonneville and Elizabeth McGovern.

And, finally, in the third picture we see Lady Edith Pelham (Laura Carmichael), the Crawley's second daughter, with her new husband Herbert Pelham (Harry Haden-Paton).

DA has released additional photos, featuring Matthew Goode, Allen Leech, Jim Carter, Phyllis LoganBrendan CoyleJoanne Froggat, Robert James-Collier, Andrew Parker, Imelda Staunton, Joseph Molesley and Raquel Cassidy.

Tuppence Middleton will be joining the original cast as a maid named Lucy.

The storyline has yet to be revealed, but if the above photos say anything, the Crawleys are in good form. At least they're keeping up appearances.

ICYMI, here's a look at the trailer for the forthcoming movie:


The Downton Abbey movie opens in the U.K. on September 13 and in the U.S. on September 20.
