StudioCanal has released the first official theatrical trailer for Justin Kurzel’s visually stunning adaptation of Shakespeare’s great tragedy Macbeth. Michael Fassbender stars as the ill-fated warrior-turned-king with Marion Cotillard portraying his wife, Lady Macbeth. The film recently received its world premiere at Cannes, receiving critical acclaim for its boldness.
Jacob Koskoff, Michael Lesslie and Todd Louiso wrote the script with Laura Hastings-Smith producing alongside See-Saw’s Iain Canning and Emile Sherman. The Weinstein Co. is releasing the film domestically.
Fassbender, Kurzel and Lesslie are re-uniting to work on Assassin’s Creed, the New Regency live-action adaptation of the Ubisoft video game.
