'Coriolanus' Trailer: Ralph Fiennes Takes Shakespeare to Another Level (Video)

The feature co-stars Gerard Butler, Jessica Chastain and Vanessa Redgrave.

Courtesty of Berlinale 2011

The trailer for Ralph Fiennes' Coriolanus has hit the web.

Fiennes stars as the title character, an unsympathetic one, in the upcoming feature adaptation based on William Shakespeare's play that John Logan put into screenplay form. The drama co-stars Gerard Butler (playing Coriolanus' archenemy), Jessica Chastain, Vanessa Redgrave and Brian Cox. From the trailer, Coriolanus looks like an intense two-hour ride.

Fiennes, who makes his directorial debut with this movie, is no stranger to Coriolanus. He was a part of the stage production that was directed by Jonathan Kent.

Some lines teased in the trailer:

"I will fight against my country."
"Coriolanus has grown from man to dragon."

Coriolanus premiered at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year.
