Shakespeare Meets Biker Gangs in Cymbeline Trailer


Here’s a trailer for the modern-day remake of Shakespeare’s lesser-known tragedy Cymbeline, from the director of 2000's Hamlet, Michael Almereyda. The film stars Ethan Hawke, Ed Harris, Penn Badgley, Milla Jovovich, Dakota Johnson, and Anton Yelchin. The original play tells of an epic battle between the Roman and Celtic nobility, reimagined here as a showdown between some dirty cops and a drug-dealing biker gang. Think Sons of Anarchy, with way more Dan Humphrey speaking in iambic pentameter.
