“It Will Have Blood, They Say”: Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard Are Intense in New “Macbeth” Stills
The upcoming film based upon the Scottish Play will premiere at Cannes next month
There’s no better way to bring the excitement, intrigue, and complexities of William Shakespeare to the masses than by making two of the hottest (figuratively and physically) actors alive the leads in a brand-new adaptation of one of the Bard’s most famous plays, Macbeth.
Just to prove that the upcoming cinematic interpretation of the Scottish Play—directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown)—will be full of beautiful people (Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard star as the, let’s say eccentric, Macbeths) and excellent production values, the Weinstein Company just released new promo shots of the film via Empire.
Check out the stills below, which all feature the luxe costume designs of Academy Award–winning designer Jacqueline Durran (Anna Karenina, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).
Macbeth will premiere next month at the Cannes Film Festival.
