BBC and Amazon Prime has released the second TV movie trailer for King Lear (2018). The trailer features its main character, King Lear (Anthony Hopkins), descending into madness after dividing his kingdom among his three daughters. The trailer also features in-fighting between those in King Lear’s circle.

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.”

King Lear also stars Tobias Menzies, Emily Watson, Emma Thompson, Florence Pugh, Christopher Eccleston, Andrew Scott, Jim Broadbent, Jim Carter, John Macmillan, Karl Johnson, Anthony Calf, Chukwudi Iwuji, Bernardo Santos, and Samuel Valentine.
