Michael Fassbender breathes new life into William Shakespeare's Macbeth in a newly released trailer for a feature film based on the classic play. The Academy Award nominated actor proves his incredible versatility and prowess in the clip, which follows the recently revealed teaser for Jobs, the biopic that centers around Apple's late founder. Set against a background that is as gritty as the writing itself, it seems as though this may be the darkest take on The Scottish Play yet. Macbeth, which also stars the beautiful Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth, arrives in theaters October 2. Take a look below.
