For any students out there who will face the task of reading Shakespeare's "Macbeth" in the future, cheating by watch the movie version just got a whole lot more interesting. Not that we condone not reading one of literature's greatest works, but if you do decide to take a shortcut, Justin Kurzel's cinematic take may be the one to track down.

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard lead the way in this highly anticipated film, and the actress is already finding human tragedy and flaws in Lady Macbeth. “The depth of humanity in her – but it’s all driven away by fear and  despair. How you do things to have a better  life – but when they are against humanity, you will fail,” she told The Independent earlier this year.

The Weinstein Company will release the film in the U.S. though no date has been set yet. The new still above comes courtesy of Empire, and here's a couple more in case you missed them.

    OMG it's the first time I see the leading actor in the movie with Oscar buzz being YOUNGER that his female partner.And he's her husband.Mostly is that a man is 10-15 years older.

    This year, the queen Cate Blanchett became a two-time Oscar Winner.
    I hope to Marion Cotillard join that club soon, and with her performance in this film. Her expressions on this picture and on the another previously published, are so remarkable and intense.
    Jesus I need to see this film! Harvey set a release date in October please!

    Let's hope she won't be robbed again for Macbeth like she was robbed for Nine, Inception and especially Rust and Bone!
    Marion should be a two-time Oscar winner now!

    With Jacqueline Durran for the costumes, Adam Arkapaw as DP, and with this incredible cast, I hope the movie will be released during award season. Marion was robbed her second nomination for Rust & Bone, hope she will have a nomination for this.
