    Still can’t believe we’re getting an acting masterclass with Denzel and Frances. These two about to show us why they have 16 (soon 18) Oscar noms and 6 wins combined

    FYC

    Best Actress - Pénélope Cruz, Olivia Colman

    Best Actor - Denzel Washington

    Best Supporting Actress - Aunjanue Ellis, Kathryn Hunter

    I know it’s premature but I can’t see how they both don’t eat these roles up.

    FYC: Better Call Saul and The Good Fight in all categories including Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    I saw Ingmar Bergman’s influence all in that trailer and I like it.

    Interesting thing seems to be the one major difference between this and most other movies/ plays is this is an old guy at the end of his age doing all this as opposed to a young up and comer.

    Denzel Washington is absolutely miscast as Lord Macbeth.

    Black people who were Lords in Scotland didn’t exist.

    And plus, a 66 year old Afro-American guy as the 30-40 year old white Scottish Lord Macbeth???

    Come on!!!

    Well, OBVIOUSLY the character isn’t 30-40 in this adaptation.

    Who the hell even did Shakespeare’s plays faithfully nowadays? No one.
    There have been plenty of literal adaptations of those plays, specifically Macbeth, and what makes it interesting now is the director’s take towards the material. The thing is Shakespeare’s view towards the event is almost imaginary, fiction. That is why it can be very easily be played by black actors.

    Have some people in this site really never seen an alternative casting or interpretation of a Shakespeare text? Is it just a lack of imagination or sheer ignorance (likely both)? It’s so weird in any case to act all proud about that like this person.

    The best cinematic adaptation of Macbeth to date is Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood, and it sure as hell didn’t take place in feudal Japan either.
