Lionsgate: Cymbeline

The modernization of a Shakespeare classic, Cymbeline arrives on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD May 19 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The film is currently available via On Demand.  A gritty story of a take-no-prisoners war between dirty cops and an outlaw biker gang, Cymbeline stars Academy Award® nominees Ethan Hawke (Best Supporting Actor, Boyhood, 2014) and Ed Harris (Best Actor, Pollock, 2000) alongside a powerhouse cast including Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil franchise), John Leguizamo (John Wick), Penn Badgley (Margin Call), Dakota Johnson (50 Shades of Grey) and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek franchise) with Bill Pullman (upcoming American Ultra) and Delroy Lindo (TV’s “Believe”).

When extortion, betrayal and fiery passions threaten his criminal empire, a drug kingpin (Harris) is driven to desperate measures in this explosive, modern retelling of Shakespeare’s timeless play.

Bonus materials include a behind-the-scenes featurette and extended interviews with cast and crew along with a Blu-ray and DVD exclusive audio commentary with director Michael Almereyda, actor Ethan Hawke and Shakespeare expert Anthony Holden.
