‘The Tempest’ Trailer: Um… What?


Take a look at director Julie Taymor’s trailer for her upcoming adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

I am flabbergasted.  This looks to be the craziest movie released this year (or any year, barring Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch).  I guess that’s to be expected with Taymor, whose films Across the Universe and Titus are some of the weirdest movies I’ve seen.  Put lightly, they’re not very good, and put strongly, they’re unmitigated disasters of artistic license run amok, eschewing both historical moments and coherence.  I’m not a Shakespeare fan, but I’d imagine those people who are fans must be pretty pissed about the strange casting choices.  Beats me.  All I know is that I won’t see it.
