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.

Anonymous was good, regardless of whether or not you subscribe to its position that Shakespeare didn't write the plays etc.  Have you seen Coriolanus yet? It's a triumph. Hard to believe it's Fiennes' first directorial effort. Fantastic performances. Redgrave's Volumnia is a lock for Academy nomination. Brian Cox SHOULD be (but will probably be overlooked-hey, I'm a realist). Gerard Butler's performance as Aufidius was a match for Fiennes as Coriolanus and (again) SHOULD silence his critics and prove he can act. Loved the martial, percussive score too. Will definitely see it again!
