The first trailer has arrived for the upcoming dramatic thriller Anonymous, which stars Rhys Ifans and Vanessa Redgrave.
The film tries to answer the question: Who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare? Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories. “Anonymous” poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles hungry for the power of the throne were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.
Anonymous, directed by Roland Emmerich, hits theaters on September 30.
