We’ve got our hands on the first movie trailer of the Tempest, the upcoming fantasy drama movie written and directed by Julie Taymor based on William Shakespeare’s play of the same name:
“Prospera’s throne (Helen Mirren) is usurped by her brother, and she is sent off on a ship with her four-year-old daughter. They find themselves stranded on an island devoid of society. A power struggle develops between Caliban (Djimon Hounsou) and Prospera due to her efforts to become a father figure to Miranda (Felicity Jones).”
The Tempest movie is starring Helen Mirren, Russell Brand, Reeve Carney, Tom Conti, Chris Cooper, Alan Cumming, Djimon Hounsou, Felicity Jones, Alfred Molina, David Strathairn, and Ben Whishaw. The film will hit theaters on December 10, 2010.
