Impressive trailer of Macbeth, the new Joel Coen with Frances McDormand and Denzel Washington

The Tragedy of Macbeth
Apple TV +

“A story of murder, madness, ambition and rabid cunning,” the synopsis promises.

We have discovered the first images of The Tragedy of Macbeth, simply translated Macbeth in French, last September. An intriguing teaser for this solo film by Joel Coen (his brother Ethan is working on a play on his side), shot in black and white with Denzel Washington, Frances McDormand, Bertie Carvel, Alex Hassell, Corey Hawkins, Harry Melling and Brendan Gleeson. As its release approaches (see you from January 14 on Apple TV +), here is its real trailer, also filled with strong images and essential tirades from William Shakespeare’s play.

“By the pricking of my thumb, something wicked this way comes.”

With its crows, cloudy skies and a door handle resembling a sharp knife, the video evokes in a few shots the macabre aspect of the story. Follow a succession of crises and bloody murders, taking place in impressive expressionist settings.
