Loki, Q, Scar, and Picard?

Who needs more Tom Hiddleston in their lives? With his next performance as Loki in Thor: The Dark World still months away, here is something unexpected. From the director of Skyfall, Sam Mendes, comes THE HOLLOW CROWN. Check out the synopsis below. It stars some of our favorite classic genre actors and a few new ones as well. This looks incredible. 

Synopsis: From executive producer Sam Mendes (Skyfall) comes four stunning adaptations of some of William Shakespeare's most revered works. Featuring an all-star cast including Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers), Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek franchises), Jeremy Irons (Margin Call), Ben Whishaw (Cloud Atlas, Skyfall), and more, THE HOLLOW CROWN includes Richard II, Henry IV Parts One and Two, and Henry V. Filmed with both epic scope and intimate detail, the rise and fall of kings is brought to life like never before in these internationally acclaimed adaptations.

The Hollow Crown will be released on iTunes, VOD and DVD on August 27th.

Aurenne, glad you added that. It looks real good but I didn't want to have to pay to see it. I don't like paying for individual programs or movies. I'd rather they be included as part of a subscription to a channel or service.  Or free!

 The trailer looks great...cast looks like an English Actor All-Star Team.  I do have some trepidations about this which can be summed up in two words...William Shakespeare.  Whenever I hear that name, I recall struggling to comprehend Hamlet, Julius Caesar and The Merchant of Venice back when I was in school. Will this PBS series come with Cliffs Notes?

 monkeyfoot...I know I'm getting away from the thread, but wanted to concur with your desire to see movies / TV shows as part of a subscription to a channel or service or free (can i add Redbox to that list?).  I find myself going to the movie theatre less and less.  I let myself get talked in to seeing Star Trek:  Into the Darkness and Pacific Rim in the theatre (both in Imax 3-D which in my neck of the woods costs a senior like me $16.50 a shot).  I found both movies to be underwhelming (judging by the amount of phone texting and tweeting going on in the theatre during the movies I guess I wasn't the only one who felt that way).  I may have been less critical of these mediocre efforts if they didn't cost so much (could get 2 mos. of Netflix streaming for less).
