Ralph Fiennes and Gerard Butler are black, white and red all over in this poster for Coriolanus

Aug. 17, 2011by:

It's probably really immature to laugh at the word "anus" in the title for CORIOLANUS. It's probably even more immature to immediately think of The Great Cornholio right after.

Then I look at this new poster for the film and I'm like, "Shits about to get real". Ralph Fiennes and Gerard Butler are staring intensely at one another. You saw the trailer didn't you? They weren't f*cking around.

The Shakesperian adaptation was written by John Logan (GLADIATOR, THE AVIATOR) and centers on, "Caius Martius Coriolanus (Fiennes), a powerful Roman general, who is at odds with the city of Rome. When he seems the esteemed position of Consul, he lacks the votes and love of the public needed to win the title. His anger at the publics dislike of him causes a riot that leads to his expulsion from Rome. Coriolanus is forced to turn to his sworn enemy, Tullus Aufidius (Butler), for the help he needs to take revenge on the city."

Few can chill me to the bone as quickly as Ralph Fiennes with a shaved head, grimacing. I like the sharp image, very harsh, very hardcore.

Didn't even know the trailer was out. M-16's make more sense now.

Why are people assuming it is ancient Rome? Since when are all movies about Rome ancient? Watch the trailer... it's modern... guns and all.

The movie looks sweet and the poster looks cool too.

Well, the Shakespeare play did take place in ancient Rome. The trailer makes the change of setting seem pretty awesome, though.

This poster has a dash of The Deer Hunter about it, for some reason.
