Did You Know?

Trivia

The clapper board used during filming did not have "Macbeth" as the title. It simply read "the Scottish film", in keeping with the tradition that saying the word "Macbeth" during a production of the play when not quoting the dialog would curse the production. See more »

Goofs

Some sets (particularly the cathedral) show examples of gothic architecture, an art style that started in the 12th century. However, Macbeth ruled in the middle of the 11th century, when gothic architecture didn't exist. See more »

A mad Fassbender, a mesmerising Cotillard, beautiful visuals, great costume design. What's not
16 September 2020 | by MehoKnicksSee all my reviews

One of many Macbeths, but a special one. It's strange why it didn't get more buzz in the theatres, but the dialect was hard even for me. Needed English subtitles, and this because it's a great film. Great choice of locations and wonderful cinematography. The interpretation of Lady Macbeth and the looniness of Macbeth is wonderful and fully justified. A joker like Fassbender was a wonderful choice - amazing film!
