Coriolanus (2011)

Coriolanus is a modern retelling of the Shakespearian tragedy. The original work by William Shakespeare was based on real life Roman leader Gaius Marcius Coriolanus. This is a modern film rendition of an original Shakespeare play, much like Richard III, and was filmed in Serbia utilizing modern settings and weaponry.

The following weapons can be seen in the film Coriolanus:

The SIG-Sauer P226 appears to be the standard sidearm of both Roman and Volscian forces in the movie. Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler), leader of the Volscians, uses a P226 to execute a Roman prisoner. Coriolanus (Ralph Fiennes) later uses a P226 while single-handedly storming a building during the battle in Corioles.
