The Weinstein Company and Studio Canal UK released this trailer for the upcoming film Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. Directed by Justin Kurzel and based on William Shakespeare‘s play, it tells the tale of a Scottish duke who receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland, but the ambitions in his household threaten to unravel everything. It also features Sean Harris as Macduff and David Thewlis as Duncan. Known on the stage as “The Scottish Play,” legends say it is bad luck to ever refer to its real title while in a theater.
Okay, that does look rad. Macbeth opens in the UK on October 2nd and in the US on December 4th in limited release.
