Ralph Fiennes and Gerard Butler face off in the poster for Coriolanus
Posted by: Zack Bruce
I finally saw the trailer for CORIOLANUS yesterday and it is amazing. I know the modern takes on Shakespeare may be a little played out but this is going to be great. Another cool detail is that Ralph Fiennes served as director on the project.
The first poster for the film shows the relationship between the two main characters, Caius and Tullus. The color scheme adds to the intensity. It’s a simple print, but very effective. When it comes to an Shakespeare adaptation, it’s better to stay away from the dangers of over Photoshopping.
Synopsis: Caius Martius “Coriolanus” (Fiennes), a powerful Roman general, who is at odds with the city of Rome. When he seems the esteemed position of Consul, he lacks the votes and love of the public needed to win the title. His anger at the public’s dislike of him causes a riot that leads to his expulsion from Rome. Coriolanus is forced to turn to his sworn enemy, Tullus Aufidius (Butler), for the help he needs to take revenge on the city.
