The Hollow Crown Trailer: Shakespeare for Smarties…

I’d actually not heard of The Hollow Crown series until I saw this trailer and found it pretty amusing because I can see those who don’t know the Bard’s works seeing this and immediately getting a Game of Thrones vibe (in that they’d mistakenly thing this is a GoT rip-off, eek!) when they should have been paying more attention in English class. Anyway, I guess I may take a peek at this set at some point as you can’t really muck up Shakespeare too much if you round up enough talent who knows the man’s work inside and out, right? I know, I know… I just got a serious “What fools these mortals be…” from that based on a few not-so hot adaptations. OK, I’m happier than usual to-day, so I’m letting my sunny side show.
