Watch: Intense UK Trailer for Ralph Fiennes' Shakespeare 'Coriolanus'
"And then men die…" Wow this looks good. We received an email from CC2K Online this morning, where they have the first UK trailer for Ralph Fiennes' adaptation of Shakespeare's Coriolanus, which he stars in and directed. This contemporized version also stars Gerard Butler, Vanessa Redgrave giving what looks to be an Oscar level performance, Brian Cox and Jessica Chastain. I had a strong feeling, from all the early buzz, that this would look great, and it really does, despite the rock music they use in this. I'm just excited to see another Shakespeare film that looks good! Fiennes looks great, but Redgrave seems amazing.
