I don’t usually have to wait for a trailer, but it seems like I’ve been waiting forever for this one.
This is an adaptation of the Shakespeare play of the same name. I’ve never read the play, but I did see it live one time. It was pretty intense, and it’s going to be way crazier with special effects.
Julie Taymor, the director, is possibly insane, but I love what she did here. She changed the gender of the main character and her demon/fairy slave. I don’t think anyone would have cared about this movie unless she did something like this. This is especially awesome because it means that Helen Mirren gets to be a sorceress and Ben Wishaw gets to be a demon. How great is that? Also having Djimon Hounsou as Caliban and having him look like that is pretty great too. Although I don’t really like him, Russell Brand was probably born for this role, he’s a rambunctious, flamboyant Brit; who better to play a fool in an adaptation of Shakespeare?
Or try Apple.
