Macbeth to get global cinema release

14 March 2024

Trafalgar Releasing, in partnership with Wessex Grove and Underbelly, will release Shakespeare’s Macbeth in cinemas across the UK, the US, Australia and selected international territories from 2 May.

This critically acclaimed and cinematic new production, starring Ralph Fiennes and Indira Varma, is being filmed live at Dock X in London specially for cinemas.

Cinema tickets will go on sale from 20 March.

Tony and BAFTA Award-winner Ralph Fiennes (Antony & Cleopatra, Schindler’s List, Coriolanus) and Olivier Award-winner Indira Varma (Present Laughter, Obi Wan Kenobi, Luther) star in this brand-new ‘full-voltage visceral’ (★★★★ Daily Telegraph) production of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Designed for a custom-built space, this gripping and breath-taking Macbeth will be unmissable on the big screen. By the end of the run in London and following seasons in Liverpool and Edinburgh, Macbeth will have played to sell out audiences of over 100,000 people at 110 performances.

Directed by Simon Godwin (Antony & Cleopatra, Romeo & Juliet, Hansard) with set and costume design by Frankie Bradshaw (Jerusalem, Blues for an Alabama Sky), this stunning production brings ‘Shakespeare’s tragedy pulsing into the present day’ (★★★★★ The I).

Macbeth is coming. A couple corrupted by their relentless lust for power have blood on their hands. Witness the gripping tale of greed, murder, deception, and superstition in cinemas for a limited time only. Once you cross the line, you can never turn back.
