While we still don't know exactly when Macbeth will be released in the U.S., two clips have debuted, after the film had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival last week. The first clip shows Michael Fassbender as the title character, who leads his Scottish soldiers, which includes super slow-motion footage of the battle getting under way. The second clip shows the official coronation of Macbeth, which also gives us a glimpse at co-stars Marion Cotillard and Elizabeth Debicki and the crowd screaming "Hail Macbeth."
From the Academy Award winning producers of The King's Speech and acclaimed director Justin Kurzel, comes a visceral and visually breath-taking retelling of the classic tale about an ambitious Scottish lord who seizes the throne with the help of his wife. Starring Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard, Macbeth is an epic cinematic experience. The supporting cast also includes Jack Reynor, David Thewlis, Paddy Considine, Sean Harris and David Hayman.
Macbeth director Justin Kurzel is also reteaming with Michael Fassbender on the highly-anticipated video game adaptation Assassin's Creed, which is set for release on December 21, 2016 with production beginning this fall.
