For any high schoolers faced with cracking the pages of Shakespeare‘s “Macbeth” in the near future, the good news they’ll have something a bit more engaging than Cliffs Notes to crib from. Justin Kurzel has put together a handsomely gritty film adaptation, and after making an impression at Cannes, its headed to cinemas.
Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard lead the movie which takes a particularly moody approach to the Bard’s famous tale. And in this new clip, we see Macbeth crossing paths with the three witches who offer prophecy about his destiny.
“Macbeth” opens on December 4th. Watch below. [The Guardian]
