From the producers of THE KING’S SPEECH comes the story of a fearless Scottish General, Macbeth (Michael Fassbender), whose ambitious wife (Marion Cotillard) urges him to use wicked means to gain power of the throne. A thrilling interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, MACBETH is a dramatic reimagining of the realities of war-torn times and a tale of all-consuming passion and ambition.
