Coriolanus Trailer. Ralph Fiennes‘ Coriolanus (2011) movie trailer stars Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler, Brian Cox, Jessica Chastain, and Vanessa Redgrave. Coriolanus‘ plot synopsis: “Caius ‘Coriolanus’ Martius a hero of Rome but also a feared general who refuses to integrate with the current system finding himself ousted by the people from the city.
