The trailer for the next Roland Emmerich film, Anonymous, has hit the web! The story tells the tale of William Shakespeare, and the possibility that he was, in fact, a fraud given the credit by a politically-isolated anonymous writer. Check out the trailer below, with the crew’s take after the break!
This is one of the few films in which Roland Emmerich is not planning to blow up the planet. Whether or not that is a good thing remains to be seen. The director’s track list of human dramas is short and underwhelming; The Patriot and 10,000 BC weren’t exactly ground-breaking movies. Having a setting that lacks physical action and a cast of unknowns may come back to hurt this film. But of course, any Victorian dramas tend to have an interesting punch to them, so who knows what to expect.
