A great film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth has been long awaited, and this teaser trailer promises great great things.
Directed by Justin Kurzell and written by Jacob Koskoff, Todd Louiso and Michael Lesslie, Macbeth is the critically acclaimed film adaptation of some play by some guy named William Shakespeare?
Kurzell’s vision for this notoriously bloody tale has taken place on the eerily dark Scottish Moors encased in tormented battle whilst the ill-fated Macbeth finds his true path. This gritty rendition was selected to compete for the prestigious Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and was praised for its boldness.
Michael Fassbender dons the Macbeth-ian crown and he seems to do so with such intensity that we’re not sure whether to be excited or just a little scared. This teaser trailer is dark and mysterious but kicks some serious butt.
Marion Cotillard is Lady Macbeth and will undoubtedly slay the classic role. The film also stars Sean Harris, Paddy Considine, Jack Reynor and Elizabeth Debicki.
If Macbeth isn’t quite you’re theatrical cup of tea, then Fassbender and Kurzel are teaming up again for the live-action adaptation of Assassin’s Creed.
All hail Macbeth.
