The Tragedy of Macbeth: The excitement will blow the roof for this Shakespeare Adaptation
When A24 and Apple come together to produce a Shakespeare Adaptation, it will always be a joyous occasion. And it is not any adaptation; we are talking about the transformation of Macbeth.
I know that there have been many Macbeth adaptations, both on-screen and on stage. But something about this movie is different from all the others. This one feels unique and something we haven’t seen before.
The best thing is that ‘The Tragedy of Macbeth‘ still does not have a full-length trailer. And this is building to all the mysterious and bloody vibes that I was talking about. Even though we have only gotten a few teasers, they are enough to show that this movie will be memorable.
The Tragedy Of Macbeth: Plot
The official synopsis reads, “A Scottish lord becomes convinced by a trio of witches that he will become the next King of Scotland, and his ambitious wife supports him in his plans of seizing power.”
We all know the plot of Macbeth by now. It is one of the most famous plays by William Shakespeare. You might have seen this play in your school or college functions at least once in your lifetime.
The story revolves around a powerful Scottish General by the name of Macbeth. Macbeth meets three witches that tell him that he will be the kind of Scotland. After hearing the prophecy and telling her wife about it, the madness begins.
Macbeth and his wife plan to ascend the current king by murdering him. However, the lust for power of Macbeth and his wife’s paranoia kicks in, and the plot takes a very dark turn very fast. Their whole plan is at risk, and they might have to cancel all of it.
But is it too late to do that now? Has Macbeth ascended into the darkness that much? Has the lust for power taken over him this much? What about Lady Macbeth? What will happen to her?
There are chances that you might have already read or seen the ending, but if you haven’t, I suggest you go into theaters like that only.
The Tragedy Of Macbeth: Release Date
The movie is all set to release on December 25, 2021. The only sad thing is that it will have a limited release. But if it is releasing in theaters near you, I think you should go and watch it.
And if you are not able to catch the movie on the giant screen, don’t worry. Because ‘The Tragedy Of Macbeth’ will be available to stream on Apple TV+ on January 14, 2022.

The Tragedy Of Macbeth: What To Expect?
I have always been a massive fan of A24 movies. Their movies have a unique flavor to them that I like. And this one is looking the same. The Black and White is going to add to the drama.
I think you can expect a perfect crime-drama thriller kind of movie from here. There will be aspects of Politics involved as well. So, everything considered, it looks like an ideal movie to watch.
