Coriolanus Poster

Nature teaches beasts to know their friends. Awesome. THR has unveiled the first official poster for Ralph Fiennes' Coriolanus, his new Shakespeare adaptation starring Fiennes as Caius Martius Coriolanus and Gerard Butler as Tullus Aufidius. We recently featured a rather intense UK trailer for the contemporary Shakespeare flick, and now we have a bold poster to go along with it. Butler and Fiennes are featured face to face, along with some stark imagery like red AK-47s and an emblem above the film's title. I'm loving the marketing for this, it's very gritty and bold for a Shakespeare adaptation, but that's why it's working so well.

Ralph Fiennes' Coriolanus Poster

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 currently scheduled for a limited theatrical release starting on December 2nd later this year. Look good?
