In Australian director Justin Kurzel’s hands, the Shakespearean epic about a Scottish king is moulded for a modern audience, with haunting cinematography, immersive battle sequences and a passionate, power couple at its core. Produced by the UK’s Film4, See-Saw Films and Creative Scotland, British actors David Thewlis and Paddy Considine star alongside Fassbender and Cotillard.





Fearless warrior Macbeth (Michael Fassbender) returns home intent on fulfilling a prophecy to become the next King. But Lady Macbeth’s (Marion Cotillard) growing thirst for power sets in motion a chain of murderous events.
