Before he returns as Mutant villain Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse, Michael Fassbender will take on a much more classic role in the latest version of Macbeth. Arriving shortly after we got our first look at the actor in 2 Macbeth clips, we know get our first full-blown introduction to the Lord who will be king! StudioCanal has released the UK trailer for Macbeth, and it promises to be the most exciting retelling of William Shakespeare yet!
Directed by Justin Kurzel, Macbeth is a completely new adaptation of William Shakespeare's period tragedy. The story will retain the play's 11th century setting and will use the original dialogue. Michael Fassbender stars the devious Macbeth, a Scottish lord who will stop at nothing to become King.
Macbeth arrrives in UK theaters starting October 7. As of yet, the drama does not have a set U.S. release date. The film co-stars Marion Cotillard, who will reteam with both Michael Fassbender and director Justin Kurzel for the much anticipated video game adaptation Assassin's Creed. If you find William Shakespeare a little too drab and boring for your tastes, then maybe you can watch this as a fine sneak peek at what's to come in the future genre films! Take a look:
