New Trailer for the Political Thriller Anonymous

Anonymous (2011)

Columbia Pictures has released a new trailer for its upcoming political thriller Anonymous, which we've embedded below.

Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely: who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare? Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories surrounding the authorship of the most renowned works in English literature. Anonymous poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles hungry for the power of the throne were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.

Anonymous stars Rafe Spall as William Shakespeare, Rhys Ifans as Edward de Vere, Vanessa Redgrave as Queen Elizabeth I, and Joely Richardson as Princess Elizabeth Tudor. The film opens in US theaters on October 28th, 2011.
