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.

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.
