Check These Out: Three New Shakespeare-Filled 'Coriolanus' Banners
"He is a lion That I am proud to hunt." More Shakespeare is coming to the big screen again soon, following Roland Emmerich's Anonymous, though I'm not sure how many people, if any, saw that flick (it was pretty good). If you haven't forgotten about it, Ralph Fiennes' Coriolanus is getting a wider release in theaters in late January, though it's out in NY/LA now. A few new banners were posted on the official Facebook that feature a couple of great Shakespeare lines used in the film. Gerard Butler co-stars as Tullus Aufidius, with Jessica Chastain and Vanessa Redgrave as Coriolanus' wife and mother. See the banners below.
A banished hero of Rome, Coriolanus (Fiennes), allies with a sworn enemy to take his revenge on the city.
Coriolanus is directed by British Oscar nominated actor Ralph Fiennes, who's making his directorial debut. The film is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's play of the same name, from the early 17th century, with a screenplay by John Logan (Gladiator, The Last Samurai, The Aviator, Sweeney Todd, Rango, Hugo). The was filmed in Serbia and Montenegro, with The Weinstein Company distributing in the US. Coriolanus is scheduled for a wide release starting January 20th next year, after a limited NY/LA debut December 2nd.
