Watch: Shakespeare Gets Rocked In New Trailer For 'Cymbeline' With Ethan Hawke, Dakota Johnson, Milla Jovovich, & More

For a brief moment there, it looked like “Cymbeline” changed its title to the super generic “Anarchy.” But whatever happened, those behind the movie decided to embrace its Shakespearean roots and launched a fiery new trailer for the flick that features no wigs or corsets, but plenty of guns.

Michael Almereyda — who wrote and directed the 2000 reimagining of “Hamlet” — once again dips into the Bard’s work, and rounds up Ethan HawkeEd HarrisMilla JovovichJohn LeguizamoPenn BadgleyDakota JohnsonAnton YelchinBill PullmanDelroy Lindo, and Kevin Corrigan for this tale of a brutal battle between corrupt cops and a biker gang.

“Cymbeline” arrives On Demand and in cinemas on March 13th. Here’s our review.
