Macbeth

While Natalie Portman was once slated to star alongside Michael Fassbender in the latest big screen adaptation of the classic William Shakespeare play Macbeth (or "that Scottish play" for all you theater folk), it's Marion Cotillard who ended up in the lead role as the lady of a Scottish lord who aspires to be king. Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel, who directed a segment in the Aussie omnibus The Turning, is at the helm of this feature adaptation, and we have two first look photos that look gorgeous. One features Fassbender embracing Cotillard, while the other has General Macbeth clearly ready for battle. Look below!

Here's the first look photos from Justin Kurzel's Macbeth from The Daily Mail:

Macbeth

Macbeth is directed by Justin Kurzel (The Turning, The Snowtown Murders) and written by Todd Louiso (Hello I Must Be Going, Love Liza, The Marc Pease Experience), based on William Shakespeare's classic play of the same name. Set in the 11th century and using Shakespeare's original dialogue, the film follows General Macbeth (Michael Fassbender), whose ambitious wife (Marion Cotillard) urges him to use wicked means in order to gain power of the throne over the sitting king. The film is expected to arrive in 2015.

A year later.... No, not too dumb to understand, it's just not something I'd be interested in. Good job keyboard warrior.

You are alleging I deleted a comment to begin with. And can't you think of any modern insults, or are you stuck in a time warp to 1970?
