"Dorian Gray" is less than a week away from its theatrical release in the U.K., and a brand new clip from the horror thriller has been found. The clip features two of the leading men, Colin Firth's Lord Henry Wotton and Ben Barnes' Dorian Gray, and focuses on the scene wherein Wotton shows Gray that there are plenty of fish in the sea.

Dorian Gray is a wealthy but naive and irresistible young man. When he agreed to have his portrait painted by Basil Hallward, he wishes that he could remain as beautiful, youthful, and alluring as the man he sees in the portrait. Little does he know, his wish will come true. Befriending the decadent Lord Henry Wotton, he soon falls into a life of depravity and self-indulgence.

As he is plunged deeper into debauched acts, he discovers that the face in the painting is aging grotesquely, but he remains young and beautiful. However, the painting serves as a reminder of the effect each act has upon his soul and gradually reveals his inner ugliness to all.

Adapted from Oscar Wilde's 1891 novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray", "Dorian Gray" comes from Ealing Studios under the direction of Oliver Parker, the helmer of "St. Trinian's". It was shot in summer 2008 at Ealing Studios and locations across London. While a U.S. release date for this film is yet to be set, September 9 will be its theatrical release date in the United Kingdom.
