Michael Fassbender Gets His Shakespeare On In ‘Macbeth’ Trailer

The word ‘epic‘ gets thrown a lot these days, but there’s no other way to best describe the new trailer for Macbeth. It’s like Braveheart meets The Dark Knight but with a Bard twist.

Michael Fassbender is the latest actor to portray the iconic Shakespearean tragic hero. Marion Cotillard plays his power-hungry wife, Lady Macbeth. To date, Roman Polanski’s 1971 version remains the most revered adaptation. This one could rival that. At least based on this new trailer.

I love all things William Shakespeare so I’m extremely stoked for this new adaptation. The film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Early reviews of the film rave about Fassbender and Cotillard’s performances.

Macbeth will hit selected theaters on December 4. Check out the trailer below.
