Trailer: Coriolanus

Based on the play Coriolanus by William Shakespeare we have a movie starring Ralph Fiennes and Gerard Butler.

Synopsis: A hero of Rome is banished and allies with a sworn enemy to take his revenge.


Finally Gerard Butler is back to being what he does best, being a bad ass! I also love when Ralph Fiennes gets to play one, his character Harry in In Bruges is one of my favorite movie characters of all time.

Coriolanus will be the directing debut for Ralph Fiennes and the screenplay is written by John Logan (Gladiator, The Last Samurai, Sweeney Todd and The Aviator).  John Logan, Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler, Vanessa Redgrave and Brian Cox.  If that cant get you excited I dont know what will.

This definately just made my must watch list.

  1. I’m all for this one! Great actors and great material to boot. Must see for me.

    My one and only observation/complaint was with the editing and obvious marketing of the trailer. If you watch it, the trailer is very sparse with actual dialogue. I’m wondering if they’re trying to “trick” the general population that will see this trailer into thinking they’re going to see an actual war movie. There is no reference to Shakespeare, no mention of a “re-envisioning” or “adapted from” anywhere. I would be disappointed if I saw that trailer, went to the theatre thinking I was seeing one movie, and then got a lot of pontificating Shakespearian monologues.

    Just wondering if anyone else noticed that or not?

    1. Sorry, my mistake. Upon a second viewing I saw the “William Shakespeare’s Coriolanus” at the very end. Whoops. I still stand by my initial observation though. This trailer was very sparse on any actual Shakespearean dialogue.

  2. I’m loving it–In Bruges is my favorite movie EVER, so Ralph Fiennes in anything is a must-see for me–but seriously? “In the arms of an enemy”? It sounds like…well, I’m not going to say it, but it does.

  3. YES!! “Coriolanus” and “Titus Andronicus” are my two favorite works of Shakespeare!! I may be the only one in the theater but I will be there for sure!
