Today brings the first trailer for 'Cymbeline,' yet another modernization of a William Shakespeare play -- though this one is lesser-known. And while we've certainly seen Shakespeare updated plenty of times, and we've seen Shakespeare done with Ethan Hawke and John Leguizamo, we've definitely never seen Shakespeare with a biker gang twist.

Released in 1997, 'The Fifth Element' starred Bruce Willis as a cab driver and former special forces officer in the 23rd century who must help a mysterious woman that just so happens to be the key to saving the entire world from destruction.

While the latest sequel, ‘Resident Evil: Retribution,’ debuted to the lowest numbers since the first film, its opening weekend box office take is still not much lower than the series best.
