Cannes 2015: ‘Macbeth’ and the reliable charm of Michael Fassbender

23 May 2015 9:49 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Macbeth

Directed by Justin Kurzel

Written by Jacob Koskoff, Todd Louiso

UK 2015

The final film in competition, Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth delivers a spectacle of dripping blood, slow-motion battle scenes, sprawling Scottish highlands and Michael Fassbender. Fassbender stars as the Scottish warrior turned regicide and paranoid monarch, who after a particularly bloody battle has a vision of three witches predicting he will be King of Scotland. Macbeth starts out as an honorable soldier loyal to King Duncan (David Thewlis) and decides to only become king the “natural way”. However, after imprudently sharing the witches’ prophecy with his wife, played by Marion Cotillard, Macbeth finds himself constrained by her ambitious power lust.

Finding the right balance between words and images is essential when adapting a Shakespearean play for the screen and Kurzel’s weapon of choice is the emphasis on the rugged, indomitable beauty of the Scottish landscape, »

Rave Reviews For MacBeth As It Opens At Cannes 2015; New Clips Feature Michael Fassbender And Marion Cotillard

— Festival de Cannes (@Festival_Cannes) May 23, 2015

Of all of William Shakespeare’s classic works, Macbeth must surely be amongst his most famous.

Certainly, in the more than 400 years since its first publication, it has been one of the most frequently adapted; revived regularly on stage and re-envisioned time and again in the age of cinema and television.

Now comes a bold and daring version starring Academy-Award nominee Michael Fassbender (12 Years A Slave) and Academy-Award winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose).

Directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown), MacBeth had its World Premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and was the final movie to screen in Competition.

In his review, Guy Lodge (Variety) praises the director’s “thrillingly elemental new adaptation. Fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it’s a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period.”

Michael Fassbender on making Macbeth – plus new clips from "the Scottish film"

22 May 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Michael Fassbender doesn't know if the Macbeth curse carries over to movie adaptations, but he'd rather not test it.

"The Scottish film" is what Michael Fassbender calls his Macbeth adaption, which is set to premiere Saturday at the Cannes Film Festival. He's maintaining the theatrical superstition of not speaking the name of Shakespeare's play - at least he wasn't in an interview ahead of the festival.

"Sometimes I say it, sometimes I don't," Fassbender said. "It depends on the day."

Macbeth, usually referred to by the euphemism "the Scottish play" by actors wary of its legendary spell, will be the final film to screen in competition at Cannes. Directed by Australian director Justin Kurzel and co-starring Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth, it has been eagerly awaited as the blood-soaked finale of the French Riviera festival, which concludes Sunday with the presentation of the Palme d'Or top prize.

Brett Morgen: The Making of 'Montage of Heck's Mad Scientist

1 May 2015 1:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Brett Morgen has been called the Mad Scientist of the documentary world with his latest film, the long-awaited Kurt Cobain biography “Montage of Heck.” Morgen certainly lives up to that billing, creating an explosive and totally unique visual and cinematic experiences out of the fallen rock god’s various creations.   I have known Brett since we were both 14 years old, having gone to high school and then college together, where we were in roommates. Since the first days of our acquaintance, I have never known anyone with such a firm sense of who he was and what he wanted to do, and that has only strengthened over the years.   However, what astonished me seeing “Montage” for the first time was how much his creative skills have grown as a director, so that wild, unstoppable sense of Brettism is now married to awe-inspiring technical superpowers, that have enabled him to produce what in my very-biased mind, »

1 May 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Every so often, the stars will align in one particular year for an actor who’ll at last see their movie star status go supernova. In 2011, it was Ryan Gosling’s turn – as Drive, The Ides Of March and Crazy, Stupid, Love. finally tipped him over into superstardom – as well as Michael Fassbender’s, with X-Men: First Class, Jane Eyre and Shame bringing the Irish actor to the attention of the moviegoing public at large.

In 2015, it looks as though the year will belong to Tom Hardy. Already an actor of considerable acclaim amongst critics and serious cinema fans, Hardy’s impressive-looking line-up of upcoming projects this year should see his fame hit peak levels, as all the talk of him being “the best actor of his generation” at last reaches the masses.

Carey Mulligan on Her Tony Nom and ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’

30 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Carey Mulligan is having a busy week; Tuesday morning she was nominated for a Tony Award for best actress in a play for the current Broadway production of “Skylight.” And Friday sees the release of her latest film, an adaption of Thomas Hardy’s novel “Far From the Madding Crowd.” Directed by Thomas Vinterberg, the film tells the story of the proud and independent Bathsheba Everdene, and the three men who vie for her affections.

After bursting onto the scene with her Oscar-nominated turn in 2009’s “An Education,” Mulligan was quickly crowned the hot new It Girl by Hollywood. Mulligan admits it was an uncomfortable fit at the time, revealing she often cried after walking red carpets.

So instead of signing onto franchises and blockbusters, she preferred to seek out smaller films that paired her with some of her favorite directors – such as the Coen Brothers with “Inside Llewyn Davis” and Steve McQueen with “Shame. »

27 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Thomas Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd returns to the big screen this week with Carey Mulligan taking on the role of heroine Bathsheba Everdene.

Spirited and headstrong, Bathsheba finds herself caught between a number of suitors: farmer Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), middle-aged bachelor William Boldwood (Michael Sheen) and reckless soldier Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge).

Mulligan's brilliant lead turn sees her break into song for the third time in her big screen career (after Shame and Inside Llewyn Davis), duetting with Michael Sheen on folk tune 'Let No Man Steal Your Thyme'.

However, Mulligan joked to Digital Spy that she wanted the scene cut from the film.

"I always get nervous about singing, so there was a singing scene that I campaigned to get cut out the film," she said. "I was rejected!

Watch: Trailer For Civil War Drama 'Echoes Of War' Starring James Badge Dale & 'It Follows' Star Maika Monroe

7 April 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We’ve been delighted in the last few years to see veteran character actor James Badge Dale break out to bigger and better things. The actor’s been a familiar face for a while thanks to “The Departed” and “The Pacific,” but racked up a string of high-profile credits and scene-stealing performances in things like “Shame,” “The Grey,” “Flight,” “Iron Man 3,” “The Lone Ranger” and “Parkland,” and finally looks to be graduating to lead roles, with horror-actioner “Spectral” due in 2016.  Read More: The Breakout Performances of 2012 First up though is something smaller in scale, as Badge Dale takes the lead in indie Civil War drama “Echoes Of War,” which hits theaters next month. Written and directed by Australian helmer Kane Senes, it sees the actor play a haunted soldier who returns home to Texas from the conflict, only to spark up a conflict between his family and a cattle rancher neighbor. »

30 Ways Michael Fassbender Puts the Sex in Sexy

2 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Michael Fassbender is one fassinating actor. We first set our sights on the sexy Irishman when he bared it all as a sex addict in Shame. Then he spanked Keira Knightley as psychiatrist Carl Jung in A Dangerous Method, and he's done more than one striptease in magazine photo shoots over the last few years. Did we mention he speaks fluent German and is set to star in an upcoming Western movie? Besides his devilish grin and proclivity toward playing naughty bad boys, here are a few of the many reasons Michael Fassbender is on our sexy radar. »

Steve McQueen To Helm BBC Series

30 March 2015 6:36 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Those keenly awaiting "Shame" and "12 Years a Slave" director Steve McQueen's next film are going to have to wait a while longer it seems.

On top of the already ordered six-part series "Codes of Conduct" he's developing and directing for HBO, the filmmaker is set to do another six-part series, this one a period drama commissioned by The BBC.

Rainmark Films is set to produce the show which deals with the experiences of a black community in west London in a period covering between the 1960s and the present day.

McQueen will direct and co-write the show alongside several other writers including Debbie Tucker Green ("Random"). BBC drama controller Ben Stephenson took the unusual step of commissioning the series before reading a script in order to secure McQueen.

The show is currently untitled and will begin shooting Spring next year.
