Apple and A24 have released a new teaser for Joel Coen’s long-awaited debut solo feature, “The Tragedy of Macbeth.” A story of murder, lunacy, ambition, and intrigue that will debut in North American theatres on December 25 and then on Apple TV + three weeks later on January 14, 2022.
The bold and inventive adaptation of the Scottish drama by Joel Coen is a masterpiece of harsh chiaroscuro and compelling anger. It’s a film filled with tremendous sadness that analyses a world ravaged by greed and unrestrained ambition with awe. watch the teaser below.
Denzel Washington portrays the guy who aspires to be king in a very contemplative voice, while Frances McDormand plays his Lady in a Machiavellian manner. Both portray jaded people with care, such as a guilt-ridden couple contemplating a political killing after hearing the malicious prophesies of a trio of “fateful sisters” (played by Kathryn Hunter ).
Despite being influenced by Laurence Olivier’s famous 1940s adaptations’ gloomy visual design (and film format) and Akira Kurosawa’s violent medieval ‘Throne of Blood’ lunacy, the narrative of loudness and Coen’s anger is undeniably his. This version mirrors the current situation by telling a terrible narrative about an immoral attack on governmental power that, like its protagonist, would ruthlessly progress into hell.
Frances McDormand, Robert Graf, and Joel Coen are the producers. Ellen Chenoweth is the casting director, Carter Burwell is the composer, Mary Zophres is the costume director, Lucian Johnston and Reginald Jaynes are the editors, Stefan Dechant is the production designer, and Bruno Delbonnel is the director of photography for the film.
