I was excited about the prospect of this new Macbeth movie from the start – I love the play, and stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard are both great. But this trailer has me BESIDE MYSELF with excitement. It’s visually gorgeous, and if it’s any indication of the tone of the movie, it will be dark and intense and gritty without seeming gimmicky or modern. (I mean, I know it’s not modernized, but sometimes with historical things trying to be “new” the tone can just be – off, and this doesn’t seem that way, so far.) And it’s still recognizably Shakespeare without coming across as a filmed stage production. Is it December 4th yet??
