The trailer to the comedic incorrect sequel of Shakespeare's Hamlet, 'Hamlet 2', has been released on the interwebs.
Following the release of its red band trailer earlier, the Focus Features' comedy "Hamlet 2" got its green band trailer outed online. The trailer takes the same amount of time to be viewed as its restricted version, which is about two and a half minutes.
Revealing the comedic side of the film starring Steve Coogan, the trailer begins with a character description of Dana Marschz stating that the failed actor turned to be a drama teacher only to find out that he is not that good in the profession either. As the trailer builds up, it is further revealed that in his effort to save his drama department from removal, he created a sequel to the famous Shakespeare play 'Hamlet 2'.
The footage then continues to show that his sequel version of Hamlet brings the supposedly dead Hamlet to the present with Jesus using a time machine. Further, as Marschz is preparing for his big musical break, tension around him is mounting up as his play contains controversial act in which Satan is set to make out with the President.
Supported with a string of stars including Catherine Keener, David Arquette, Elisabeth Shue, and Amy Poehler, "Hamlet 2" comes from the "The In-Laws" director Andrew Fleming. The said to be hilarious film is set to come out on August 29. The trailer can be enjoyed below or on its trailer page at AceShowbiz.
