Ink-Covered First Official Poster for Roland Emmerich's 'Anonymous'

Anonymous Poster

Debate: Was Shakespeare a Fraud? Seriously, this is still that Roland Emmerich movie. I don't believe it either, but hot damn am I excited to see it. Sony Pictures has debuted the first official poster via Latino Review for Emmerich's Anonymous, the "is Shakespeare a fraud" period piece starring Rhys Ifans as Edward de Vere, who some believe was actually Shakespeare. We featured a trailer for this a few weeks ago and I think it looks quite good. Ifans told Empire the film "isn't Emmerich-esque at all. He's great at those huge scenes and big showbiz shots, but he's meticulous emotionally as well." See the inky new poster below!

Roland Emmerich's Anonymous Poster

Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain to Sigmund Freud, namely: who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare? Anonymous poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court and schemes of greedy nobles hungry for power were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage. Directed by Emmerich and written by John Orloff (A Mighty Heart, Legend of the Guardians). Anonymous will hit theaters on October 28th.

Really neat poster. But the "Was Shakespeare a Fraud?" seems to throw off the stylish groove it has going.

"Who was William Shakespeare?"

Should have been on May 4, 2011


"You don't write 37 plays without making a few enemies."

SONY and Anonymous....this movie eerily parallels Sony's real life problems. Of course not similar in context, but the words SONY and ANONYMOUS in general. As for the movie, it looks like Emmerich may have his first hit with the critics. We'll just have to wait and see.

How? PSN got hacked, this film claims that someone other that Shakespeare wrote the plays. I don't see the connection.

Check it out: Sony found a file named Anonymous on their servers with a snippet that read "We Are Legion." So now, they're blaming Anonymous for the hacking based on the totally incredible presence of a file that points to such an easy target.

Sony is blaming Anonymous for their monumental cock-up based on a txt file found on their servers.
