In 2019, AppleTV revealed that it has begun work on a film adaptation of the Shakespearean tragedy Macbeth, which is being directed by Joel Cohen. This is the first time that one of the brothers is working on a picture alone, which immediately attracted the attention of the press and moviegoers around the world. In September 2021 there was a private screening of the film in New York, and later there was a private theatrical version. The service recently unveiled the film’s final trailer, with a release date of The Tragedy of Macbeth set for January 14, 2022. The project is exclusive to Apple TV and will be available to viewers by subscription.

The new Apple picture is based on Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth, which is the most enigmatic in the great poet’s bibliography. It has been tried many times to be adapted, but the attempts have not been successful, which is causing a lot of interest in the film. The critics, who had a chance to see the picture at the private screening were impressed with the project, and the general public will be able to assess the film after its release. The release date – January 14, 2022.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
Many people appreciated the play of the performers of the main roles. Among them are Denzel Washington, Francis McDorman, Brendan Glisson and other equally famous actors. An interesting fact is that McDorman is the wife of the project director Joel Cohen and playing Lady Macbeth was her cherished dream. Critics attribute the decision to shoot the film without her brother to the director’s desire to make a fully auteurized project for his wife.
According to the plot, the action will unfold in the 11th century in Scotland. Macbeth and his close friend Banquo have just won a bloody war with the Irish and Scots and are on their way to meet the King of Scotland for the reward. Along the way, the friends meet three witches who prophesy Macbeth to become heir to the throne and Banquo to become the founder of a new royal dynasty. In what will escalate this prophecy, the audience will be able to find out by watching the new adaptation of Joel Cohen. The date of the movie The tragedy of Macbeth will be held on January 14, 2022.
Upon learning of the prophecy, the hero shares the news with his wife, and when the king arrives at Macbeth’s castle, Lady Macbeth persuades her husband to kill the king and his servants. An indecisive Macbeth goes along with his wife’s entreaties and commits the king’s murder, which brings him to the throne. Fearing the second part of the prophecy, the man orders the execution of Banquo and his heirs. Being in constant fear because of the double betrayal, Macbeth gradually goes mad, which affects the life of the whole state and leads to disastrous consequences. The film’s release date is January 14, 2022.
