“I dare do all that may become a man; Who dares do more is none.” – Act 1, Scene 7.
The fiery, raw passion of William Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, Macbeth, is alive in an exclusive new trailer which teases powerful and mighty performances by Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.
Adapted from the bard’s great epic, director Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) looks to have created a gripping new adaptation that wrestles with the dark choices of one man’s heart in his quest for absolute power. With a solid script from Jacob Koskoff, Todd Louiso and Michael Lesslie, along with accurate period production design and costuming, Kurzel looks to have created what is likely to be the most authentic adaptation of Macbeth ever!
His cast includes two phenomenal performances from Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard as Lord and Lady Macbeth, the conniving couple who will do anything and everything for power, while his supporting players include the talents of Sean Harris and Elizabeth Debicki as Lord and Lady MacDuff, Paddy Considine as Banquo and David Thewlis as Duncan.
Macbeth will be one of the most prestigious cinema events of the year, and audiences will find themselves consumed by the words of Shakespeare in a completely original and fresh way.
