Another Trailer For Shakespearean war thriller Coriolanus

With an international trailer, and buzz already coming in, Ralph Fiennes and Coriolanus appear to be one of the winter’s better films.

Plot Summary: The film follows Caius Martius ‘Coriolanus’ (Ralph Fiennes), a revered and feared Roman General who 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 refuses to support him, Coriolanus’s anger prompts a riot that 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.
