Shakespearean Inspired Movies

Hear ye, hear ye! These are some of the upcoming Shakespeare-inspired movies that are coming your way this year!

Gnomeo and Juliet (Walt Disney Pictures)

The neighboring gardens or Montague and Capulet are at war but Gnomeo and Juliet are in love. Walt Disney Pictures adapted the Romeo and Juliet story and added a twist to it that both the young and old will definitely find amusing. Voiced by Hollywood’s premier actors and actresses and a soundtrack with songs from Sir Elton John add some lawnmowers and pink flamingos and a lot of humor, this movie will definitely entertain you!

The Tempest (Miramax Films)

Do not be fooled by the shakespearean verses because this movie packs a punch. With state of the art special effects and the A-list Hollywood actors. No wonder this movie was an entry garnered such awards. The main character now is a woman named Prospera. With themes like sorcery, passion, stupidity, treachery, and revenge. This is not a struggle of strength but a struggle of intellect.

    Sa wakas! There’s someone who posted The Tempest (2010)!

    Pity. It’s only two. And both are mainstream. Wish you’d find more but that’s imposing you much reasearch to add more (aside from two). =D
