Happy Superbowl Sunday! I saw these on Friday but just finally got time to post ’em. Now, these are the movies I wish I’d see the trailers during the Superbowl. These pics just made me anticipate these movies a whole lot more (if that is even possible).
Thanks to gbGALS on Twitter, we got some additional pictures of the Ralph Fiennes-directed modern Shakespeare historical thriller Coriolanus. Fiennes also stars as the banished hero of Rome who allies with a sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler) to take his revenge on the city. The stellar supporting cast includes Brian Cox, Vanessa Redgrave, James Nesbitt and Jessica Chastain. Screenplay by John Logan (Gladiator, Last Samurai)
Next week on Valentine’s day, the movie is premiering at this year’s BERLINALE film festival and the Fiennes’ debut film is also eligible to compete for “Best First Feature.” There’s no info yet when this movie will open in the US but last Thursday, Deadline reported that the Weinstein Co. is in talks to distribute Coriolanus. Harvey Weinstein has distributed two of Ralph Fiennes movies before, The English Patient and The Reader.
At least for this one I only have about a month to wait as it’s coming out on March 11. The trailer of the Charlotte Brontë’s Gothic romance has been released last November and it looks really, really good. Soon to be A-lister Michael Fassbender has since been cast in Ridley Scott’s alien flick Prometheus and he’s also in another highly-anticipated flick X-Men: First Class. The strong supporting cast includes Judi Dench, Jamie Bell, Sally Hawkins and Imogen Poots. But what I’m anticipating most is to see Fassbender’s interpretation of my favorite byronic hero, Edward Rochester!

Anybody else anticipating either or both of these movies?
