We suppose you gotta sell a costume drama conspiracy movie about whether or not Shakespeare actually wrote his massive body of work somehow. But setting it to Radiohead's "Everything In Its Right Place" is just plain dumb.

We suppose you gotta sell a costume drama conspiracy movie about whether or not Shakespeare actually wrote his massive body of work somehow. But setting it to Radiohead's "Everything In Its Right Place" is just plain dumb.

A trailer has landed for the latest brain exercise from "2012" director Roland Emmerich and it's basically a montage of flashback scenes with Thom Yorke wailing over the top for some reason. The Shakespeare-era film stars Edward Hogg, David Thewlis, Vanessa Redgrave, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson and Rafe Spall, and will dive into the mystery of whether the great playwright wrote all those works himself or whether something more nefarious was at hand. Of course, being an Emmerich film, there are cannon blasts, fire and a hedge maze. Take that 10th Grade English class!

"Anonymous" hits theaters on September 30th. Watch the trailer below.
