From the director of Snowtown, Australian director Justin Kurzel, comes the critically acclaimed adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. The story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. Macbeth (Fassbender), Duke of Scotland, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife (Cotillard), Macbeth murders his king (David Thewlis) to take the throne for himself. This is a thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times, and a truthful reimagining of one of Shakespeare’s most celebrated plays, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition.

Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes is back for the new Bond, having been at the helm of the hugely acclaimed Skyfall. A cryptic message from James Bond’s (Daniel Craig) past prompts him to set out to uncover a sinister criminal organization called SPECTRE (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion). While M (Ralph Fiennes) battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE. From an astonishing opening sequence in Mexico City, to seduction in the Austrian Alps, it wouldn’t be Bond without a thrilling mix of espionage, action and luxury international travel. Daniel Craig continues his reign as 007.
