“All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be king.”
That’s just the first of many lines you will get to hear in the first official teaser trailer for “Macbeth”, and the phrase alone is enough to give us goosebumps.
Helmed by critically-acclaimed director Justin Kurzel, “Macbeth” is the film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play of the same name.
The play, which considered one of Shakespeare’s darkest and most powerful works, revolves around the life of a brave Scottish general named Macbeth. After receiving a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland, he is consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife to murder his king and takes the throne for himself.
Based on the trailer, it looks like “Macbeth” is sure to bring us an epic cinematic experience. There’s no denying that it’s a powerful trailer that made us even more excited for “Assassin’s Creed“, an upcoming film adaptation of a famed video game which will reunite the director, Fassbender, and Cotillard.

“Macbeth” hits the cinemas on 2nd October in the UK and will be released by The Weinstein Company at unspecified date.
