Keep your head while watching the new bullet-filled trailer for Anarchy

There’s a new trailer for the film ANARCHY, which was previously titled Cymbeline. The new trailer turns down the speed a little and cranks up the violence, no complaints. It’s based on William Shakespeare‘s Cymbeline and was written and directed by Michael Almereyda, who gave us a modern-day vision HAMLET starring Ethen Hawke back in 2000. They have teamed up again to bring us this crime battle tale between a biker gang led by King Cymbeline (Ed Harris) and corrupt cops. Always a winning formula.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Anarchy unfolds amidst an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang, set in a corruption-riddled contemporary America. In the style of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, Anarchy is a fresh take on a universal story of love, betrayal and revenge.

The trailer pretty much captures the tone of any Shakespeare story I’ve ever read. I’m kidding of course; ANARCHY probably has a more driving and elderly people wearing leather jackets. It looks like a lot of fun and the modern take on one of his least known plays is the best way to go about it I think. That and casting Milla Jovovich in anything is a guaranteed watch from most people I know.

ANARVHY hits theaters and VOD on March 13th 2015 and also stars, Dakota Johnson, Penn BadgleyAnton Yelchin, John Leguizamo, and Delroy Lindo.

On the plus side, this is the best-cut trailer for this movie yet. On the minus side, not loving the title change. I feel like the audience for a movie like this (bikers going to war, not Shakespeare) would watch Cymbeline as long as they didn't know it was actually Shakespeare. They might actually be more drawn to it because what the hell is a Cumbeline, right? (I know it's Ed Harris' name, but your average movie-goer might not).

Forget it. I'm just bitching because it's the rare movie now

Forget it. I'm just bitching because it's the rare movie now that actually has a cool title, instead of an oversimplified, vague, interchangeable one.

Asylum Tactics

Calling a Shakespeare-inspired biker movie Anarchy is basically praying that people mistake your project for a hit television series. A cheap, lazy, transparent marketing ploy that makes me not want to support this project.

Wow, not even trying to hide the fact they are trying to cash in on the "Sons of Anarchy " crowd.
