There are very few things I geek out over more than Shakespeare, so imagine my barely containable glee when I saw this trailer for the first time this week:
I am rabidly chomping at my metaphorical bit to see this movie. Historical intrigue! Political bribery! And thousands of moments that are just begging for a good “You can’t handle the truth!” to be blurted out. As if Elizabethan England and a plot revolving around Shakespeare weren’t enough, I love that they’re playing the plagiarism/ghost writer angle.
Did Shakespeare actually write his entire canon? I’m certain that a Hollywood production will not provide definitive answers, but it looks to be darn good entertainment at the very least.
Had you seen this trailer yet? What are your thoughts on the movie?
