The Tragedy of Macbeth is described as a bold and fierce adaptation of the iconic Shakespeare tale of murder, madness, ambition, and wrathful cunning. Filmed in black-and-white, the story follows a lord who’s convinced by a trio of witches that he’s destined to become the king of Scotland. With the help of his ambitious wife, Macbeth tries to seize the crown by any means necessary.

The film is written and directed by Joel Coen, which marks his first feature project without long-time collaborator and brother Ethan Cohen It stars Denzel Washington, Frances McDormand, Bertie Carvel, Alex Hassell, Corey Hawkins, Kathryn Hunter, Harry Melling, and Brendan Gleeson.

In a previous interview, Dormand revealed that Joel Coen’s adaptation will be exploring more about the characters’ age and that she and Washington are portraying much older versions of the Macbeths which is different from previous iterations. Because of this, it will add more depth to the story by putting a lot of pressure on the leading characters to take the crown for themselves.

The Tragedy of Macbeth reunites frequent Coen collaborators including Bruno Delbonnel as the cinematographer, Mary Zophres as costume designer, and a score from Carter Burwell. In addition to directing, Coen produces the film alongside McDormand and Robert Graf.

Last May, Apple Original Films and A24 have officially partnered for the film’s theatrical and streaming distribution, with A24 aiming to release the film in theaters in the fourth quarter of this year and is expected to be followed by a global premiere on Apple TV+
