All Hail MACBETH In The New Teaser Trailer!
Snowtown helmer Justin Kurzel‘s latest Shakespearan contribution, Macbeth, has already earned the praise and approval of critics and attendees at Cannes last month, and from the looks of the most recent clips, it’s easy to see why. Actor Michael Fassbender and actress Marion Cotillard take the lead in this new tale set in war-torn 11th century Scotland, centered on a king brought down by lust and ambition, and though this isn’t the first time a film has been adapted from this specific literary material, it surely lends plenty of lip service for the man in the director’s seat, especially since the two will be rejoining for Assassin’s Creed soon.
From the Academy Award® winning producers of The King’s Speech and acclaimed director Justin Kurzel, comes a visceral and visually breath-taking retelling of the classic tale about an ambitious Scottish lord who seizes the throne with the help of his wife. Starring Academy Award® nominee Michael Fassbender and Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard, MACBETH is an epic cinematic experience.
Paddy Considine, David Thewlis, Sean Harris, Jack Reynor and Elizabeth Debicki also star for the film’s UK release on October 2, 2015 from Studiocanal. Check out the teaser trailer below!
