With Michael Green once again on script duty, the new movie assembles another star-studded cast around Branagh and Tom Bateman‘s Bouc. The sultry, sexy new trailer features the likes of Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer (noticeably de-emphasized here following his personal scandals), Rose Leslie, Sophie Okonedo, Annette Bening, Emma McKay, Letitia Wright, Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French.
