First clip for Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of Macbeth


It’s been a bit since we’ve landed some good ol’ Shakespeare on the big screen and even longer since we’ve had a solid Macbeth so it’s easy to see why folks are getting excited for the Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard led version premiering at Cannes. 

You can check out the lushness and intensity in this first clip for the film, which appears to be just a crummy cut from a soon-to-be released trailer. A better look is the images and posers below, which are give a hint at the darkness that the film will hopefully be bringing. 

Macbeth doesn’t have a release date at the moment, but it’s sure to get one after or during Cannes.
