This Trailer for the Present-Day Midsummer Night’s Dream Movie Includes a Man With a Literal Buttface:

For a film adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream that has a man with a literal ass head, it has such an uninspired and boring trailer. Hopefully the final film is more interesting.

Clive Owen, Tom Felton, George MacKay Join Daisy Ridley’s ‘Ophelia’

The movie is set in the 14th Century but spoken in a contemporary voice as a re-imagining of William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Ridley portrays the title character as the most trusted lady-in-waiting to the Queen, played by Naomi Watts. She soon captures the attention of Prince Hamlet and a forbidden love blossoms. As war brews, lust and betrayal are tearing Elsinore Castle apart from within.

Owen will play Claudius, MacKay will play Hamlet, Felton will play Laertes, and Terrell will play Horatio.
