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.
