    Since "King John" became the first Shakespearean film adaptation in 1899, there have been many directors eager to take a crack at interpreting the Bard's words for a new generation.

    Shakespeare Goes Sci-Fi in "Henry5," With Michael Caine, Ray Winstone and Gerard Depardieu

    Once More Unto The Breach, Dear Friends... Shakespeare and science fiction aren't necessarily the most obvious mix, but as proven by the 50s classic "Forbidden Planet" (and to a lesser extent, Godard's post-apocalyptic "King Lear," which refers to the play more than it adapts it), it can work, and ...
