Jude Law Is Unrecognizable as Henry VIII in Firebrand Trailer with Alicia Vikander

Divorced. Beheaded. Died. Divorced. Beheaded. Survived. Catherine Parr (Alicia Vikander) was the sixth and final wife of Henry VIII, and the wife who survived him. Firebrand tells the often-overlooked story of the woman who outlived the King of England (here played by Jude Law), managing to successfully navigate courtly intrigue in 16th-century England, and the ever-present dangers involved. Alicia Vikander plays the queen and wife for Henry’s final four years of life, while Law disappears between the larger-than-life layers that made Henry so recognizable at the end of his days.
