King Lear Trailer

BBC‘s King Lear (2018) TV movie trailer stars Anthony Hopkins, Tobias Menzies, Emily Watson, Emma Thompson, and Florence Pugh. King Lear‘s plot synopsis: “The 80-year-old King Lear divides his kingdom among his daughters, Goneril, Regan and Cordelia, according to their affection for him. Cordelia refuses to flatter him, so he banishes her. Having acquired power, Goneril and Regan expel their father from their homes. At the same time, Lear’s prime minister, Gloucester, is betrayed by his son Edmund and his other son, Edgar, is forced to go into hiding. Lear becomes mad, Gloucester is blinded: both the kingdom and the family collapse into chaos and warfare. Lear and Cordelia are reunited – for a brief moment love reigns, then tragedy descends.”

Anthony Hopkins is very intimidating at the end of this trailer. I hope that is the power that he brings to the part throughout the entirety of King Lear.

King Lear also stars Christopher Eccleston, Andrew Scott, Jim Broadbent, Jim Carter, John Macmillan, Karl Johnson, Anthony Calf, Chukwudi Iwuji, Bernardo Santos, and Samuel Valentine.
