Gritty Shakespeare in New Trailer for 'Anarchy,' Formerly 'Cymbeline'

Anarchy

Seemingly trying to capitalize on the popularity of the series "Sons of Anarchy," the contemporary Shakespearean drama Cymbeline has changed its title to just Anarchy, which seems a little misguided. But anyway, along with the new title comes a new trailer, showing off a war between biker gangs with plenty of drug dealing, corruption violence, and an ensemble cast that includes Ethan Hawke, Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Anton Yelchin, John Leguizamo, Dakota Johnson and more. It looks pretty intense, but I'm not entirely sold on it from ths trailer. Maybe it will be worth it just for the performances. Watch it?

Here's the new trailer for Michael Almereyda's Anarchy, originally from EW:

You can still watch the previous trailer for Anarchy, formerly Cymbeline, right here.

Anarchy is directed by Michael Almereyda (Hamlet), based on William Shakespeare's original text. Ethan Hawke (Training Day, The Purge) stars in the film which unfolds as an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang set in a corruption-riddled 21st century America. The film also features Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Penn Badgley, Anton Yelchin, Penn Badgley, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman and Dakota Johnson. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival back in 2014 and Lionsgate has picked it up for release in the United States simultaneously on VOD and in limited theaters this spring on March 13th.

Looks like this would make a better TV Series on Cable than a Movie
