Is this trailer for Macbeth being billed as a 'teaser' because it's the first one? And because there isn't much plot to it? Heavy on atmosphere, this little look at Justin Kurzel's Cannes hit might then be an accurate summary of the film itself, if reviews from the festival are to be trusted. Out in the UK on the 2nd of October; no US release has yet been confirmed, but since The Weinstein Company is distributing the film Stateside, and since they've been generating buzz around the project for well over a year now, one can expect them to debut it in America in perfect time for awards consideration. The beautiful visuals come courtesy of Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran alongside two less well-known names: cinematographer Adam Arkapaw (Animal Kingdom; Lore) and production designer Fiona Crombie, both of whom have been brought in by Kurzel, who worked with them on Snowtown.
