The first trailer has been released for the upcoming Apple/A24 film 'The Tragedy of Macbeth'. Based on the William Shakespeare tragedy of the same name, the film is written and directed by Joel Cohen, marking the first film without the involvement of his brother Ethan. It was shot entirely on sound stages in LA in Black & White and in 4:3 aspect ratio.
Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand star in Joel Coen’s bold and fierce adaptation; a tale of murder, madness, ambition and wrathful cunning.
The cast of “The Tragedy of Macbeth” also includes Bertie Carvel, Alex Hassell, Corey Hawkins, Kathryn Hunter, Harry Melling and Brendan Gleeson. The film 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. The film is an A24 and IAC production.
In a move likely to make sure it is eligible come award season, the film will premiere in theatres first on December 25th after a run at several festivals including the New York Film Festival and the London Film Festival. It will then premiere on Apple TV+ on January 14th 2022.
