The Tempest is an upcoming fantasy feature based on the play of the same name by the one and only William Shakespeare. Directed by Julie Taymor and starring a colorful cast of characters, The Tempest takes place when the throne of Prospera (Helen Mirren) is seized by her brother. She is then sent off on a ship with her four-year-old daughter and they find themselves stranded on an island that lacks a legitimate society. A power struggle ensues. There’s a lot going on here, but the visuals sure are breathtaking. Hit the new trailer after the jump.
