First Look at Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard in the Latest Incarnation of Macbeth
This is not the first time Macbeth has been brought to life on the screen and it most likely won’t be the last. New stills have now been released showing a first look at Michael Fassbender as Macbeth and Mario Cotillard as Lady Macbeth.
Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of literature’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war torn Scotland.
From the producers of The King’s Speech and Shame and directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown). Macbeth stars Michael Fassbender (Twelve Years A Slave) and Academy-Award winner Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night) as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, along with Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum), David Thewlis (the Harry Potter series), Sean Harris (Prometheus), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did) and Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby).
Macbeth is scheduled for a UK release October 2015.
