First U.S. trailer for Macbeth released


The damn spot is out

Get ready for an Oscar nomination, folks. We've only see a pretty dull international clip for the upcoming Macbeth adaptation, but now with a U.S. one we get to see what the film is really about. It's about some striking visuals and what look to be Oscar worthy performances from Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.

There's definitely something visually striking about director Justin Kurzel's work here that strikes the exact right tone. It looks both epic and yet intimate. The war scenes make you think there's a big world around this, but at the same time the focus is so on the play's two leads that you can't help but feel like you're watching a stage play. It's hard not to get excited for this.

And because of that it's surprisingly hard not to get excited for Assassin's Creed, which will re-team the two actors and the director for what may be a video game movie that doesn't suck.
