I like to give you all a heads up when a film that's book based is coming out and this sure fits the bill! "THE TEMPEST!" This looks to be a fantastic revisioning of Shakespeare's classic tale!
I'm really excited about this new trailer and wanted to share it with you all. It makes me want to get out my copy of the play and reread it before the film hits the big screen December 10. It's directed by Julie Taymor and stars Helen Mirren, Russell Brand, Reeve Carney, Tom Conti, Chris Cooper, Alan Cumming, Djimon Hounsou, Felicity Jones, Alfred Molina, David Strathairn, Ben Whishaw.
In her big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare's mystical thriller “The Tempest,” Academy Award®–nominated Julie Taymor (“Across the Universe,” “Frida,” “Titus”) brings an original dynamic to the story by changing the gender of the sorcerer Prospero into the sorceress Prospera, portrayed by Oscar® winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen”). Prospera’s journey spirals through vengeance to forgiveness as she reigns over a magical island, cares for her young daughter, Miranda, and unleashes her powers against shipwrecked enemies in this exciting, masterly mix of romance, tragicomedy and the supernatural.
2010 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.” Amazing!
