Bloody first trailer for Michael Fassbender's Macbeth unveiled
The first trailer for the new adaptation of William Shakespeare's Macbeth, which stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, have been unveiled. Scroll down and click to watch it.
The movie stars Michael Fassbender as Macbeth himself, with Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth. There are also key roles for Sean Harris, Elizabeth Debecki and Paddy Considine.
The trailer is decidedly dark and showcases the film's bleak landscapes as well as many violent battle sequences. It also shows that Shakespeare's original dialogue will be used in the film, rather than any modern updated language.
Macbeth has been directed by Snowtown director Justin Kurzel, who will team up with Fassbender again later this year to work on the big budget adaptation of Assassin's Creed. Filming on that project is set to begin in September.
Macbeth will be released into UK cinemas on October 2nd this year.
