Justin Kurzel’s new film of Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, takes a low-key approach to the supernatural while playing the battles in highly cinematic style, as well as giving most of the soliloquies lingering shots letting the cast hold the scene.

It cuts a surprising amount of the text considering the near-two-hour running time, but there is quite a lot of beautiful dramatic slow-motion. We’ll see how much of that gets into the trio’s next project, Assassin’s Creed.

Doesn’t fix the final prophecy total lack of foreshadowing that led to Eowyn fighting the Witch-King (after the Ents played Birnam Wood) but hey.
