Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard Have One Eye On The Throne In Moody Macbeth Posters

27 August 2015 12:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Before the trio unite for their big-screen adaptation of Assassin’s Creed – which incidentally revealed its first official still earlier today – Justin Kurzel (Snowtown), Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender will delve into Shakespearean lore with Macbeth. Charting the trials and tribulations of Fassbender’s titular Thane and his would-be path to the throne, Kurzel is gunning for a gripping and haunting portrayal of the famed supernatural play, and earlier this year a spine-chilling trailer only reaffirmed the director’s gritty tone.

Fast forward to today and Empire has served up a pair of new moody character posters for the upcoming feature film, showcasing a pensive Lady Macbeth and a battle-ready Thane of Glamis. Drawing upon the truly mythic tenets of the source material, we can readily expect Kurzel’s Macbeth to chart the gradual ruination of Fassbender’s character who, after encountering a trio of witches in the Scottish Highland, »

Two new posters for Macbeth featuring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard

27 August 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Empire has debuted two new posters from director Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, both of which you can view right here…

Michael Fassbender (Shame) and Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night) star in the film, with Paddy Considine (Dead Man’s Shoes), Elizabeth Debicki (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), Sean Harris (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) and David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything) featuring in the cast.

Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of literature’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war torn Scotland.

Macbeth is out in the UK on October 2nd. »

Exclusive New Posters For Macbeth

27 August 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The new issue of Empire plunges into the blood-red mists of Justin Kurzel's Macbeth. There’s something for everyone: a battle-hardened Michael Fassbender, witches, a rhesus positive Paddy Considine, a scheming Marion Cotillard and a whole mess of Shakespearean intrigue, all illustrated with some spectacular images not dissimilar to these. If that doesn’t quench your thirst for cauldron-fresh murderous shenanigans, here are a couple of exclusive new Macbeth character posters to fill the void, kicking off with the man himself...The protagonists are, of course, Fassbender’s Thane of Glamis, a loyal servant to King Duncan (David Thewlis) and cohort to Banquo (Paddy Considine). Well, he is those things until he encounters three witches in the post-battle mists of the Scottish highlands and hears their prophecy of great power in his future. Their soothsaying takes root with the help of the honey poured into his ear by Lady Macbeth. »

New Look At Michael Fassbender's Macbeth In Action

25 August 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Justin Kurzel’s crunching adaptation of Macbeth kicks off with a big battle in the mist and just gets more brutal and unsparing from there. The Bard’s great story of ambition, superstition and moorland crones dispensing bad advice has had the big-screen treatment before – even the great Orson Welles turned his camera to it – but visually, this one has a scale hitherto unseen. The desolate Scottish landscape, as this still from the opening clash of clans hints, is a haunting backdrop to all the political shenanigans behind the throne.This first new still from the film (above) sees Michael Fassbender's Thane of Glamis - still two 'promotions' from assuming the throne - leaning into the battle on behalf of David Thewlis' King Duncan as the royalists and rebels do battle.Above, suitably troubled, is Paddy Considine as Banquo, Macbeth's loyal but increasingly dubious ally.

Tom Hardy Rules London Twice Over In New Trailer, Posters & Images For Gangster Tale 'Legend'

21 August 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

What’s better than one Tom Hardy? Two Tom Hardys, clearly, and that’s something that we’ll be getting very shortly, thanks to Brian Helgeland’s “Legend.” After the success of his Jackie Robinson movie “42” a few years back, the writer-director, who also won an Oscar for co-writing “L.A. Confidential,” has crossed the pond and returned to the crime genre for his latest, which sees Hardy play both of the famous Kray twins, who terrorized London in the 1960s.  The brothers have been the subject of movies before, most notably Peter Medak’s “The Krays,” but this is the first time a single actor has played both, and Hardy, who tops a fine cast also including Emily Browning, Colin Morgan, Christopher Eccleston, Taron Egerton, David Thewlis and Chazz Palminteri, is undoubtedly the top draw here.  The film’s just a few weeks away from being unveiled — it opens »

New Legend Poster Arrives

10 August 2015 5:05 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Providing good value in cinematic acting ability, Legend offers a two-for-one deal on Tom Hardy, as he plays both halves of nefarious criminal sibling duo Ronnie and Reggie Kray. The new poster, showing the brothers dominating the London skyline, is online for your Hardification purposes. For a time in the ‘50s and ‘60s, Ronnie and Reggie ruled East London with fists, pistols and pure, simple intimidation. Their gang, the unimaginatively-named but viciously effective The Firm, took control of the shadowy underworld and carried out armed robberies, arson, racketeering, assaults and murder. La Confidential’s Brian Helgeland is piloting us through this crime arena. Legend dips into the dark underbelly of the swinging ‘60s, when sharp-suited gangsters warred for turf and control, and innocent people were caught in the middle of the conflict, although criminals like Ronald and Reginald Kray liked to claim they only went after the competition.Emily Browning, »
