One of half of the Coen brothers, Joel Coen, has partnered up with A24 to create a stunning adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
There are a few things that get us excited no matter what, including the Coens, A24, and Shakespeare. Mix them all together, and you have The Tragedy of Macbeth, an amazing project we can't wait to see.
You can check out the gorgeous visuals from the new teaser here.
The film has an acclaimed cast with the likes of Denzel Washington as Macbeth and Francis McDormand as Lady Macbeth.
Although we haven't seen that much, the cinematography is already looking masterful. It has visual shades of The Lighthouse and more recently The Green Knight, even following with the choice of the 4:3 aspect ratio.
Another big tidbit behind this film is that it will be Joel Coen's first film without his brother. It'll be interesting to see how his directing style and tone translate to a story with this subject matter.
The Tragedy of Macbeth will be released in theaters on Dec. 25 and on Apple TV+ on Jan. 14, 2022.
