Watch: Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard in ‘Macbeth’ First Trailer

Michael Fassbender is “in blood stepp’d in so far” that he’s reached a point of no return.

StudioCanal UK has released the striking first trailer for director Justin Kurzel’s highly anticipated reimagining of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.” Fassbender plays the titular Scottish lord turned traitor who will stop at nothing to become king, driven partly by Lady Macbeth’s (played by Marion Cotillard) insatiable appetite for power.

The movie premiered to rave reviews at last month’s Cannes Film Festival. “Fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it’s a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period,” Variety film critic Guy Lodge wrote.

“Macbeth” will hit theaters in the U.K. on October 2. The Weinstein Company will release the adaptation in the U.S. this fall.
