First Trailer for Ralph Fiennes’ Coriolanus

Posted August 10, 2011 by Max in Trailers

Lionsgate has released the first European trailer for Ralph Fiennes‘ first directing effort, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. The film stars George Butler, Vanessa Redgrave, Jessica Chastain and Brian Cox.

This excerpt from the Guardian (UK) should give enough information of what to expect:

Coriolanus, of course, is originally set in pre-imperial Rome: the drama turns on Coriolanus’s refusal to court the favour of the Roman people after a string of military successes sees him propelled toward election as a consul – only for political machinations to see him expelled from the city, and to trigger a lust for revenge on Rome.

Coriolanus will see limited theatrical release starting on 2nd December 2011.
