MACBETH: Watch This Gorgeous And Gritty Trailer For Kurzel's Shakespeare Flick
If you have never read Shakespeare's play it is about a Scottish general who is told a prophecy that he will inherit the throne. Not prone to being patient, he and his wife, Lady MacBeth, conspire to seize the throne sooner and thus their decent into madness begins. Out, damned spot!
Back to the trailer. Wow. Epic does not begin to even describe it. The colors are gorgeous. The production looks fantastic. Fassbender and Cotillard are such good actors it is almost sacrilege to think they would screw up Shakespeare. There is at least one large scale battle scene in the film, complete with a soldier armed with a deer antler (1:08). Yikes.
This looks pretty great.
