Coriolanus UK Trailer. Ralph Fiennes‘ Coriolanus (2011) UK movie trailer stars Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler, Brian Cox, Jessica Chastain, and Vanessa Redgrave. Coriolanus‘ plot synopsis: “The film is an adaptation of William Shakespeare‘s Coriolanus…A banished hero of Rome allies with a sworn enemy to take his revenge on the city.”
This movie looks fantastic. I will have to set aside some time to read Coriolanus. The way writer John Logan modernized the story in a war-torn setting looks good, Children of Men good. Since I haven’t read the play yet, I do not understand why the government would betray such a celebrated soldier as Caius Martius Coriolanus for. What did he do? I am also glad to see that the trailer’s producers did not give the reason away in the movie trailer.
Fiennes recruited director of photography Barry Ackroyd and camera operator Oliver Driscoll (The Hurt Locker, Green Zone) in order to visually realize Shakespeare’s Coriolanus as a gritty modern-day tale of war.
Coriolanus also stars Lubna Azabal, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Dragan Micanovic, Paul Jesson, and Harry Fenn.
