The only thing more wicked than what's coming for the people of Scotland in the first trailer for "Macbeth" is the sting of our crush on Michael Fassbender. The talented Irishman takes on the titular role in Justin Kurzel's adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy, with Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard playing his scheming lady. The film will keep the classic Medieval Scotland setting and the dark tone that you read back in high school, but based on the trailer, Fassbender and Cotillard's performances should offer something new for Shakespeare fans around the globe:
... And if you liked the looks of that, know that Kurzel, Fassbender, and Cotillard will reunite to film "Assassin's Creed" this week, after revealing a first look at Fassbender in costume in August.
"Macbeth" hits theaters on December 4.
