New Poster of Macbeth are already published.
The protagonists are, Fassbender’s Thane of Glamis, a loyal servant to King Duncan and cohort to Banquo. Well, he is those things until he encounters three witches in the post-battle mists of the Scottish highlands and hears their prophecy of great power in his future. Their soothsaying takes root with the help of the honey poured into his ear by Lady Macbeth. Here is Marion Cotillard's manipulative princess in her suitably transparent veil.
Director Justin 'Snowtown' Kurzel has summoned the visual power and creeping madness of a medieval Apocalypse Now with an adaptation that's simultaneously faithful and fresh. “It reminded me a lot of a Western,” Kurzel expanded earlier this year, "and of a landscape and atmosphere that felt much more dangerous than I’d ever seen before from adaptations of Macbeth”.
Rounding out the Australian's cast are Sean Harris, Elizabeth Debicki and Jack Reynor. Macbeth is out in the UK on October 2.
