‘Macbeth’ Trailer: No One Man Should Have All That Power

Fassbender Takeover
He's also Steve Jobs in 'Steve Jobs.'

Hail Macbeth. Hail Macbeth…

Here’s your first full look at Michael Fassbender as the power-thirsty title character in Justin Kurzel’s new film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth.

The film, which also stars Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth, was positively received at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, where it competed for the coveted Palme d’Or (France’s Dheepan took home the prize).

According to Variety, this is the first of two projects for Fassbender, Cotillard, and Kurzel. The trio will soon begin production on the big screen adaptation of the video game your little brother can’t stop playing, Assassin’s Creed.

Macbeth opens nationwide on Dec. 4.
