Macbeth and Lady Macbeth Plot Their Takeover in New Trailer

A new trailer has been released for the film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, and it hints at a sprawling and action-packed film. Check it out below!

The new trailer is every bit as foreboding and atmospheric as the first teaser trailer was, but we get a bit more noise and action this time around. The movie looks gritty and epic, with a mix of intimate shots that recall the stage and massive sequences that remind us that this is a blockbuster production. 

The film is already generating critical acclaim in advance of its full release, thanks to its debut at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Critics have praised the performances of Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard in the lead roles. Fassbender, an Oscar nominee, plays General Macbeth; Cotillard, an Oscar winner, takes on the role of the infamous Lady Macbeth. The film, which preserves Shakespeare’s original words, currently has a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The film comes out on October 2 in the United Kingdom, but American viewers will have to wait for the U.S. release on December 4 of this year.
