Coriolanus Trailer

The first official movie trailer of Coriolanus has been released online, watch it below:

"Caius Martius Coriolanus (Ralph Fiennes), a revered and feared Roman General is at odds with the city of Rome and his fellow citizens. Pushed by his controlling and ambitious mother Volumnia (Vanessa Redgrave) to seek the exalted and powerful position of Consul, he is loath to ingratiate himself with the masses whose votes he needs in order to secure the office. When the public refuse to support him, Coriolanus's anger prompts a riot which culminates in his expulsion from Rome. The banished hero then allies himself with his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler) to take his revenge on the city."

Let's hope the film will be as intense as the trailer!

Coriolanus Movie

For his directorial debut Ralph Fiennes is tackling a movie adaptation of Coriolanus, Shakespeare's famous tragedy. But we won't get to see people wearing Roman togas: Ralph Fiennes' modern take on Coriolanus takes place in a contemporary setting.The film is starring Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler, and Vanessa Redgrave. Shooting began 17 March 2010 in Belgrade, Serbia, and the film is expected to open the 2011 Belgrade International Film Festival.

Here's a first look at Ralph Fiennes on the set of Coriolanus:

- Jessica Chastain as Virgilia
- Dragan Micanovic as Titus
