One of the more surprising and lesser-known facts about Sam Mendes’ second film, Road to Perdition, is that it’s actually adapted from a graphic novel of the same name by Max Allan Collins. The plot follows Michael Sullivan (Tom Hanks), an Irish mob enforcer as he goes on the run with his son Michael Jr. after Jr. witnesses a murder and their family is killed in an effort to cover up any witnesses. There’s many great things in this film that standout, such as Jude Law’s creepy performance as assassin Harlen Maguire, one of Paul Newman’s final and finest performances as mob boss John Rooney, and Hollywood got an early look at the talent of Daniel Craig as the unstable Connor Rooney. However, it’s the climax that remains the most memorable thing in it, featuring some of the most iconic work from »

Following the international trailer released back in June, The Weinstein Company has debuted the first domestic trailer for Macbeth, debuting in select theaters December 4.

A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a truthful reimagining of what wartime must have really been like for one of Shakespeare's most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war-torn 11th Century Scotland. »
Something wicked this way comes, and it.s the new Macbeth trailer. Michael Fassbender plays the titular role in the latest adaptation of the Shakespeare classic. As we get closer to the year.s end and the fog clears off from the 2016 Oscar contenders, this film from director Justin Kurzel is rising up in the ranks. Watch the dark and stormy new footage below. This new Macbeth trailer makes the film out to be the Dark Knight of Shakespeare plays. The color palette and, obviously, the tone are dark; the symphonic accompaniment is dramatic and stirring; and the crescendo-ing chants mimic the "Deshi Basara" one from The Dark Knight Rises. But in all seriousness, it.s difficult not to get excited over this. For those who didn.t pay attention in high school English, Macbeth tells of the Scottish thane. He encounters three witches who foresee him to "be king »

The Us trailer for Macbeth, the upcoming version of the classic Shakespeare story, has just been released. Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard star in the new adaptation from Justin Kurzel (Snowtown).

We've already seen a gorgeous, epic trailer for Justin Kurzel's Macbeth but there appears to be so much awesomeness in Kurzel's movie that the studio can just keep cutting epic trailers on a weekly basis until the movie eventually opens. I'm convinced of it.
For those who may have missed the hubbub to date, the latest adaptation of Shakespeare stars Michael Fassbender as the titular Macbeth and Marion Cotillard as his lady wife. Along for the battle and murder to come are also David Thewlis, Jack Reynor, Sean Harris and Elizabeth Debecki.
So while we marvel at the smoky beauty and stark imagery of this new trailer, let us also keep in mind that the trio of Kurzel, Fass [Continued ...] »
Prepare your eyes for this new trailer for Justin Kurzel's Shakespearean flick MacBeth, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, for it is something to behold. If you have never read Shakespeare's play it is about a Scottish general who is told a prophecy that he will inherit the throne. Not prone to being patient, he and his wife, Lady MacBeth, conspire to seize the throne sooner and thus their decent into madness begins. Out, damned spot!Back to the trailer. Wow. Epic does not begin to even describe it. The colors are gorgeous. The production looks fantastic. Fassbender and Cotillard are such good actors it is almost sacrilege to think they would screw up Shakespeare. There is at least one large scale battle scene in the film,...

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard are stepping into some of Shakespeare's most infamous roles in the upcoming adaptation of Macbeth, and the trailer is intense. We have already gotten a couple of clips, but this gives us a much better look at the movie as a whole. Directed by Justin Kurzel, the film really channels the dark, compelling tone of the classic tale. Still, I won't be satisfied until I see Cotillard scream, "Out, damned spot!" in anguish. The movie is due out on Dec. 4 - prime award season time. Until then, check out all the highly anticipated movies of the Fall! Here's the UK version of the teaser, which came out in June: »
Pitting Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard on a meandering, bloodthirsty quest for the crown, the trailer sees the Thane of Glamis locking horns on the dank and misty Scottish Highlands, while his significant other is busy fighting battles of her own as she looks to engineer a way to overthrow King Duncan. As anyone with even a passing interest in English literature – or high school education – will know all too well, Macbeth charts the mythic rise to power and tragic decent into villainy of the titular Thane, who discovers his supposed destiny when a trio of witches reveal his would-be path to the throne in the fallout of a brutal battle.

The haunting trailer shows the titular Scottish lord’s bloody journey to the throne. Marion Cotillard plays Lady Macbeth, who feeds her husband’s insatiable appetite for power.

Witch please! The latest trailer release for Justin Kurzel’s rough and tumble Shakespearean adaptation of Macbeth highlights once again just how much this is not your father’s Scottish play. Featuring a typically committed performance from Michael Fassbender as the doomed warrior-turned-king, Macbeth is filled with breathtaking battles. Already the film looks set to battle it out with Alejandro Gonzalez Inarittu’s The Revenant for best-looking film of the year. Marion Coti… »

The cast also includes Elizabeth Debicki, Marion Cotillard, Sean Harris, David Thewlis, Jack Reynor and Paddy Considine. There are some really spectacular shots shown in this trailer, from cinematographer Adam Arkapaw, and overall it looks like my kind of Shakespeare movie. Dark, gritty, enthralling, and visceral.

A new trailer for the latest cinematic adaptation of Shakespeare's classic tragedy Macbeth has arrived online.
Boasting stunning images of bloody battle and snowy wilderness, it's a feast for the eyes - and not just because Fassbender has his top off at one point.
It also features quotes from the seemingly-infinite number of positive reviews it's been getting in advance of its release, only adding to its hype.
The trailer comes months after the film's rapturous welcome at Cannes, where both leads had praise heaped upon them.
Cotillard, Fassbender and director Kurzel are currently filming another project together, Assassin's Creed, which began shooting yesterday.

Shakespeare was pretty boring in high school English class, but the first trailer for The Weinstein Company’s “Macbeth” starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard makes this classic piece of literature look pretty cool. The film, as anyone familiar with the source material knows, follows a Scottish army general’s rise to the throne after receiving a prophecy from a trio of witches predicting he’ll be king one day. Well, one day isn’t fast enough for Macbeth (Fassbender) and his wife (Cotillard), who encourages him to just murder the sitting king to speed up the process. Between what »
