The Tempest Trailer Is Pretty Out There

The trailer for The Tempest looks really trippy. I have no idea what’s going on, but the visuals alone makes me curious about checking this movie out. The movie is directed by Julie Taymor (Across the Universe, Lion King Musical) and is an adaptation from William Shakespeare’s play. Instead of a sorcerer, like in the play, the movie will star Helen Mirren as sorceress Prospera, Russel Brand, Reeve Carney, Tom Conti, Chris Cooper, Alan Cumming, Djimon Hounsou, Felicity Jones, Alfred Molina, David Strathairn, and Ben Whishaw.

Prospera reigns over a magical island, while trying to take care of her daughter and using her sorcery against shipwrecked enemies in a tale about revenge, love, and the supernatural. See for yourself if this is too weird for you.

The Tempest will be available in limited screenings on December 10, 2010.
