In this film adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy, Fiennes' titular character allies himself with a sworn enemy to claim vengeance on the country that once betrayed him.
A brand new trailer for "Coriolanus" has been made available for viewing pleasure. Presenting plenty of action-packed scenes, the promo video revolves around Ralph Fiennes' titular character. It briefly shows his beef with Gerard Butler's Tullus Aufidius and the betrayal by his people.
An adaptation of a William Shakespeare's tragedy, this movie tells the story of Caius "Coriolanus" Martius. He is a revered and feared Roman General who finds himself at odds with the city of Rome and his fellow citizens after he seeks the exalted and powerful position of Consul.
Though pushed by his controlling and ambitious mother, Caius is reluctant to ingratiate himself with the masses whose votes he needs in order to secure the office. When the public refuses to support him, his anger prompts a riot that culminates in his expulsion from Rome. The banished hero then allies himself with his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius to take his revenge on the city.
Beside taking the starring role, Fiennes also makes his directorial duty through "Coriolanus". Joining him and Butler in the cast ensemble are Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave as well as Brian Cox and Jessica Chastain. This movie is scheduled to open in limited U.S. theaters on January 13, 2012.
