Bell Shakespeare’s 2015 season has been announced: As You Like It, Hamlet, The Tempest, and Romeo and Juliet (with Sydney Symphony Orchestra). Looking forward to seeing Hamlet when it makes its way to WA.
Shakespeare has received no shortage of contemporary cinematic takes, but we’d reckon there are few that have involved machine guns. So welcome to Michael Almereyda’s “Cymbeline,” which is not his first journey down the Bard’s path. He’s the filmmaker behind 2000’s slick version of “Hamlet,” but this looks like a different animal entirely.
Thank you Venice film festival. New trailer and a clip from Cymbeline has been released. Embedding didn’t work, so follow the link to view both.
Coming soon to TV: Morgan Freeman, Kim Cattrall, Hugh Bonneville, David Harewood, Christopher Plummer, and Joseph Fiennes have signed up to study the works of Shakespeare in a new documentary series, My Shakespeare.
