There’s no fear of the Scottish Curse for Joel Coen, who’s behind the latest bit of Shakespeare to hit cinema screens in The Tragedy of Macbeth.

Two brief teasers/trailers have arrived so far, showing off the striking black and white style of the feature.

Denzel Washington stars as Lord Macbeth, while Frances McDormand, Corey Hawkins, Brendan Gleeson, Stephen Root and Harry Melling also star.

The Tragedy of Macbeth is set for a limited Australian cinematic release from December 26.
