Late Night Trailers: The Tempest

I have a huge soft spot for Ms. Julie Taymor, enough of one to consider spending lots of dough on a flight to New York for her awful sounding Spiderman musical and to warrant the purchase of a copy of Frida (one the most controversial films one can admit to liking). But this trailer for The Tempest reminds me of the good old days, when Taymor was fresh off one of my favorite Shakespeare retellings, Titus. Although a bit videogamy from the trailer, the all star cast (Helen Mirren as Prospero, Ben Whisaw, David Strathairn, Chris Cooper, Russell Brand, Djimon Hounsou, Alfred Molina), mixed with the classic Taymor costuming and lush surroundings makes me kinda totally excited about escaping into her version of Shakespeare's world. If anybody can do it better than Baz Luhrmann, it's her.
