While I don't know what to think about The Tempest, the trailer is still a sight to behold. I don't know if it's the high energy, the crazy graphics or the fact that Julie Taymor directed the film, but what we have here is sure to be a spectacle. Whether that's good or bad is yet to be known.
The Tempest Trailer
In her big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare's mystical thriller The Tempest, Academy Award–nominated Julie Taymor brings an original dynamic to the story by changing the gender of the sorcerer Prospero into the sorceress Prospera, portrayed by Oscar® winner Helen Mirren. Prospera's journey spirals through vengeance to forgiveness as she reigns over a magical island, cares for her young daughter, Miranda, and unleashes her powers against shipwrecked enemies in this exciting, masterly mix of romance, tragicomedy and the supernatural.
