Having stormed Cannes last month with some great reviews, Justin Kurzel's Macbeth is the latest rebelling of Shakespeare's iconic play. Today, first trailer for the film has arrived and it's dark, beautiful and awesome.

This morning, StudioCanal have debuted a short teaser for the film and it's great. I love the dark vibe to the reveal and the beautiful, chilling shots are simply stunning. The trailer is visually gorgeous and does a great job of capturing the true gritty nature of Macbeth. Michael Fassbender looks tremendous in the role too, as does Marion Cotillard as his, arguably, even more power crazed wife, Lady Macbeth.

The film opened to some great reviews at Cannes, just a couple of weeks back. From what we see here, it's evident why. The film looks great. I'm definitely intrigued to see more from it in the coming months. It looks like Kurzel has done a fantastic job of bringing the play to the big screen. We can see some iconic scenes in action in the trailer, all complete with some of the play's infamous quotes. 

Here's the film's official synopsis:

From the Academy Award® winning producers of The King’s Speech and acclaimed director Justin Kurzel, comes a visceral and visually breath-taking retelling of the classic tale about an ambitious Scottish lord who seizes the throne with the help of his wife. Starring Academy Award® nominee Michael Fassbender and Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard, MACBETH is an epic cinematic experience.

With Justin Kurzel at the helm, and starring Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jack Reynor, Sean Harris and Paddy ConsidineMacbeth opens, here in the UK, on October 2nd, 2015.
