Marion Cotillard, who essays the role of a queen in Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth, looked like a queen as she walked in a bejeweled blue and rose red minidress from Dior.
This Dior‘s haute couture spring summer 2015 dress, had myriad embroidered pailettes and jewels and created the much required dramatic effect on the red carpet.
However, the men, Michael Fassbender and Justin Kurzel, who accompanied the lady looked draper on their black suits.Sienna Miller and Xavier Dolan were also spotted walking the red carpet at the premiere.
Unlike the play, the movie opens with the death the child of Macbeth (Michael Fassbender) and Lady Macbeth (Marion Cotillard).
The three witches appear later with their prophecies, but the opening scenes are virtually wordless, with the child’s cremation on a funeral pyre leading into a dramatic battle scene featuring Macbeth’s loyalist forces battling Macdonwald, the traitor.
Michael Fassbender has been hailed as one of the greatest screen actors to ever play Shakespeare, for his performance in the latest film version of Macbeth.
The actor, of German and Irish descent, has been widely praised for his role as the Scottish king in the film by the Australian director Justin Kurzel.
The movie was filmed in Scotland, during the winter, and the landscape adds a brutality to the already brutal war scenes.
During a press conference prior to the screening, Michael Fassbender was in a jovial mood, and when asked what was the best and worst things about filming the movie in Scotland, he joked and stated that it was, “Whisky and whisky.”
In this big screen adaptation, Michael Fassbender suffers from post traumatic stress disorder, while Marion Cotillard is haunted by the loss of a child.
