We've been overdue a good Shakespearean film. Let's be honest the last great adaption was probably Baz Luhrmann's Romeo+Juliet in 1996. Your mileage might vary on Michael Almereyda's Hamlet (2000), and Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing (2013), but based on the trailer for Justin Kurzel's Macbeth, we're in good hands. The film stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, and looks to be a visual treat.

Macbeth opens October 2nd in the UK. As of this moment there is no U.S. release date for the film. Hail Macbeth!
