All hail Macbeth! Join us in cinemas nationwide and watch Macbeth claw his way to power in the stark world of the 11th century. Returning from victory on the battlefield where they have helped crush a rebellion against King Duncan of Scotland, the warriors Macbeth and Banquo are accosted by three mysterious women. These weird sisters greet Macbeth as Thane of Cawdor – a title belonging to one of the vanquished rebels – and predict he will subsequently become king. When Duncan quickly rewards Macbeth with the executed Cawdor’s title, Macbeth – with the encouragement of his ambitious wife – begins to contemplate fulfilling the second part of the sisters’ prophecy by taking his destiny into his own murderous hands.
