This Dark, Gritty Macbeth Trailer Will Make You Finally Like Shakespeare

Prepare to see Michael Fassbender at his most badass.

If you just pretended to read Macbeth during sophomore year English class, you now have a chance to redeem yourself — go see the big-screen adaptation of the classic Shakespeare play. Michael Fassbender plays the titular role, while everyone’s favorite Frenchwoman, Marion Cotillard, is at his side as Lady Macbeth. If the trailer indicates anything, we’re getting bloody, Game of Thrones-esque fighting sequences and deliciously evil power plays (seriously, you should’ve just read it in high school, it was pretty badass). Macbeth hits theaters on December 4th.
