Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.16.15] action drama

When I saw this in my inbox this morning, I must admit I was a bit resistant. What on earth is this Anarchy thing? And then I open the trailer and all becomes clear.

Remember late in 2013 when we posted a trailer for Michael Almereyda's Cymbeline? An adaptation of Shakespeare's play about a princess who defies her father and marries a good but lowborn man? Some marketing guru somewhere figured the way to sell this is to drop the Shakespearean title and rework the trailer as a fairly straight forward biker gang drama.

For the most part, this trailer successfully sells the movie as a prototypical biker movie. If you don't anything about the project and haven't seen the original trailer, you might be surprised to discover that it's in Iambic Pentameter because this flashy new trailer manages to hide that fact pretty well.

Anarchy stars a boatload of great actors including Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, John Leguizamo, Penn Badgley, Dakota Johnson, Anton Yelchin, Bill Pullman and Almereyda regular Ethan Hawke.

Anarchy will be available on VOD and limited theatrical release on March 13.
