“I am in blood/Stepp’d in so far”

There is no going back for me. With this teaser trailer, I’m now just uncontrollably excited for Macbeth.

The teaser is short but telling, and that’s the way I like them. The teaser instantly immerses you in the dark and sinister mood it’s setting up with some bleak looking set pieces and characters. It compliments the tragic and depressing story really well, and I can’t wait to be engulfed into that world for two hours.

Most of the shots in the trailer look so beautifully dank (and not at all like the dull looking Exodus: Gods & Kings). A gorgeous-looking dark tragedy is what it is.

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard are looking great as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. I’m not going to guess how good they’ll be based off a teaser trailer, but as of now, they look fantastic and with their acting talent, I have no doubt they’ll crush it.

I’ve been waiting to see a good rendition of this really gripping story on the big screen, and with this teaser, everything seems to be going in the right direction. All Hail Macbeth.
