Michael Fassbender looks ready to kill a king in one of two new Macbeth posters

It’s a good time to be Michael Fassbender.

First, the actor shows up looking lethally badass in a poster for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film, then he shows up looking medievally badass in a poster for Macbeth.

The Macbeth art is one of a pair of new posters for the movie and the other depicts the theater’s most ruthless femme fatale: Lady Macbeth (Marion Cotillard). The words “ALL HAIL” appear below the film’s title and — if this is anywhere close to as good as it looks — movie fans everywhere will be doing just that.


If you haven’t seen it  yet, you can check out Macbeth’s misty, fiery trailer above. It’s visually arresting to say the least and turned nearly every head in Cannes when it debuted at the film festival back in May.

Director Justin Kurzel is also helming the Assassin’s Creed project and Cotillard is co-starring in that film as well. If both are a success at the box office, this may be the start of a beautiful friendship for the trio and may pave the way for another Shakespeare adaptation. Perchance to dream?

The original Game of Thrones, the tragedy of Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s most heralded works and is a testament to the destructive power of unbridled ambition. The story has been adapted to film several times, most notably in 1948 (with Orson Welles as Macbeth) and in 1971 (with Roman Polanski at the helm).


Kurzel’s take on this classic story will hit theaters sometime in December. The exact date is still under wraps, but you can bet that the studio will do its best to dodge the Star Wars: The Force Awakens (December 18)  juggernaut.

Either way, Fassbender should be ready to kill a king very soon.
