Across a war-torn and unforgiving landscape, fearless warrior and inspiring leader Macbeth returns home, having encountered three witches on the bloody battlefields who foretell of a prophecy that he shall be the next King. Although initially sceptical, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s growing ambition and thirst for power soon leads to murder, unleashing a savage and inescapable spiral of bloodshed and madness.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) and starring Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard, Macbeth is a breath-taking and thrilling modern epic.
