New Cymbeline Trailer Online

It can be difficult to make Shakespeare work in trailers. He was a wordy man and didn't write with intention of having his story flashily edited into 90 seconds with a pop hit running underneath. But the new trailer for Cymbeline does a pretty impressive job of making the play seem gritty and bringing out the action.

The original play is an epic of forbidden love, attempted murders, cross-dressing and great battle in Britain. Michael Almereyda's film has adapted this into a grudge war between corrupt cops and a drug-dealing biker gang in modern America. The impressive cast includes Ed Harris, Ethan Hawke, Anton Yelchin, Milla Jovovich, John Leguizamo, Penn Badgley and Dakota Johnson.
