For most of us, The Tragedy of Macbeth reminds us of the bleak time in our life when we were forced against our will to read Shakespeare in high school.
Directed by Joel Coen of the iconic Coen Brothers directing duo, this adaptation seems like a particularly chilling variation of the iconic play of Macbeth. Joel and his brother, Ethan, are well-known for their sometimes-odd yet incredibly clever movies, including Fargo, The Big Lebowski, and No Country for Old Men.
The Tragedy of Macbeth seems like a bit of a departure from the director responsible for these movies. Still, any film directed by a Coen brother is bound to be successful at the very least in looking at things from a different angle.
The official trailer was released back in late September, and though it's only around 30 seconds long, its power almost makes you forget about all the hours you spent being confused by the Sparknotes of the play.
