Broadsheet Trailer Park: Macbeth

at

macbeth

What you may need to know:

1. Greenhorn Justin Kurzel directs Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard in the 13th screen adaption of “The Scottish Play.”

2. And not a sign of Sir Kenneth of Branagh.

3. That Shakespeare bloke could really knock ‘em out. Allegedly.

4. There’s a longstanding luvvie superstition that quoting Macbeth outside of a performance will lead to disaster. Like saying “Voldemort” or “Candyman” out loud.

5. Our boy Michael has come a long way since Band of Brothers (2001).

6. Broadsheet Prognosis: Spoiler alert: He dies at the end. TRAGEDY!!!

Release Date: October 2.

    All future Leaving cert answers on Macbeth will be “Then that mental french one who is a bit of a ride, tells fassbender to kill the king, so he does it so he can be king just like nidge in love/hate.”

    Looks good for a piece of lying Tudor propaganda. In the real story, Duncan raped MacBeatha’s wife, Gruaigeach, and stole the throne from him, but let it pass, let it pass…

    Looking forward to this; Kurzel’s previous (Snowtown) is the most disturbing film i’ve ever seen.
