Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand share a tense moment in this first image and teaser for Apple TV+’s The Tragedy of Macbeth.
The two veteran actors will star as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth in Joel Coen’s terrifying adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play.
Apple’s official description reads that it is “tale of murder, madness, ambition and wrathful cunning.”
Macbeth, the play, centers on a 16th-century ruler who sought power for himself. The film will be centered around a couple in the 60s.
“It puts a very specific time pressure on the characters, but also on the storytelling, which I think is the real brilliance of the adaptation that Joel has done,” Frances shared during an Instagram live discussion. “There’s a real suspense. “The time is running out not only for the characters, but also it propels the storytelling.”
The Tragedy of Macbeth will be in theaters on December 25, and will be streaming on January 14 on Apple TV+.
