Though we won't be seeing Australian director Justin Kurzel's "Macbeth" until 2015, a few still enticing new stills from the film have landed. 

This adaptation of Shakespeare's deliciously dark masterpiece of evil stars Michael Fassbender as the titular power-mongering general and Marion Cotillard as the scheming, hand-wringing Lady Macbeth. Justin Kurzel confidently made his directorial debut in 2011 with the powerful "Snowtown," which centered on the grisly true story of a spate of cult murders in a dreary Australian suburb. With that film in mind, "Macbeth" feels like a natural progression, and another grim portrait of power gone horribly awry.

"Macbeth" has been adapted time and again, most notably by director Roman Polanski in 1971 just after Sharon Tate's murder. But if it's anything like "Snowtown," Kurzel's new revamp, from a script by Jacob Koskoff and Todd Louiso, ought to be a visceral and disturbing experience. Count us excited for this one when The Weinstein Company brings it to theaters.
