Imagine "Game of Thrones" with Michael Fassbender speaking Shakespearean. Then you've got "Macbeth."

The first teaser trailer for Justin Kurzel's "Macbeth" shows Fassbender's titular fighter covered in streaks of dirt and blood on the battlefield. After receiving a prophecy that he will be King, Macbeth slips into the King's tent with a dagger. Between brooding looks of stern conviction from Fassbender, intense battle scenes and Marion Cotillard as Lady MacBeth, Kurzel's adaptation is sure to be an epic awards contender.

The film was also nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, so there's a lot to look forward to. "Macbeth" does not yet have a U.S. release date.
