A new Macbeth Trailer has officially been released. The trailer is only a minute and 41 seconds but we come to see the darker more edgier film version of the famed Shakespearean play. Michael Fassbender plays the renowned character and in the beginning the man leads an army in vast misty wasteland. Marion Cotillard appears later as Lady Macbeth and we see the intense and darker take of their story together. The trailer mainly showcases Macbeth as a brutal warrior and the many battles fought. The play was revered for its take on the physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who try to seek power.

Along with Fassbender and Cotillard, Sean Harris, Jack Reynor, Elizabeth Debicki, and Paddy Considine also star in this picture. It’s directed by Justin Kurzel and will be distributed by The Weinsten Company. Expect the movie to hit theaters December 4th.
