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 Hawke, Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, John Leguizamo, Penn Badgley, Dakota Johnson, Anton Yelchin, Bill Pullman, Delroy Lindo, and Kevin Corrigan for this tale of a brutal battle between corrupt cops and a biker gang. Things get violent and explosive, with shots being fired and iambic pentameter tossed around for good measure. Your English professor might not approve.
“Cymbeline” arrives On Demand and in cinemas on March 13th. Here’s our review.
