“All hail, Macbeth, thou shalt be king hereafter!”
Michael Fassbender rises to power in the first official trailer for “Macbeth,” released by the Weinstein Company on Tuesday. The haunting trailer shows the titular Scottish lord’s bloody journey to the throne. Marion Cotillard plays Lady Macbeth, who feeds her husband’s insatiable appetite for power.
Justin Kurzel’s highly anticipated reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy premiered to rave reviews at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.
Kurzel is also directing Fassbender and Cotillard’s videogame adaptation “Assassin’s Creed,” with “Macbeth” co-writer Michael Lesslie writing the screenplay.
“Macbeth” also stars Paddy Considine, Sean Harris, David Thewlis and Jack Reynor. It hits theaters on Dec. 4.
