Trailer for Emmerich’s Shakespeare Conspiracy Feature, ‘Anonymous’

Roland Emmerich’s next film doesn’t set out to destroy the world, just William Shakespeare’s legacy as Anonymous hinges the argument it was the 17th Earl of Oxford, Edward de Vere (Rhys Ifans), that actually wrote Shakespeare’s plays and is described as something of a political thriller set against the backdrop of the succession of Queen Elizabeth I (Vanessa Redgrave), and the Essex Rebellion against her.

The first trailer for the film, which hits theaters on September 30 has just arrived. I didn’t give it a watch, but would love to hear what you think of it.

Personally I’m excited for this film. The concept sounds intriguing and Ifans secured his role as the villain in The Amazing Spider-Man partially because of his performance here. Do you see anything to back that up in the trailer?
