The full-length trailer for Roland Emmerich‘s Anonymous is here and it has some bad news. No, the U.S. Capitol Building hasn’t been laser-raped by an out-of-control storm system. Rather, William Shakespeare has been lying to you. To all of us. What the movie proposes is that the Bard of Avon never wrote a word. In fact, the poems and plays were the work of Edward De Vere, Earl of Oxford, but he was banned from including his name on his work.
Just when you think you know a guy. Shakespeare is lucky Oprah is off the air. Otherwise, he’d be getting a very public talking-to.
