New Trailers: ‘Macbeth’, ‘The Danish Girl’, and ‘The 5th Wave’

Today was a big trailer day in Hollywood as we got some new and first looks at upcoming movies. First of all, we got a new trailer for Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender as the titular character and Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth. Directed by Justin Kurzel, Macbeth looks like a beautifully shot and high intensity adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic story. Check out the new trailer. 

Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war torn 11th Century Scotland.

Next, we got our first trailer for The Danish Girl starring last year’s best actor winner Eddie Redmayne and rising star Alicia Vikander. It is about a man who is dressed up as a woman so that his wife could paint him but he slowly turns into that woman and discovers a new side to himself. DIrected by Tom Hooper, who did The King’s Speech and Les Misérables so don’t be surprised to see it be a huge contender at the Oscars.

Copenhagen, early 1920s. Danish artist, Gerda Wegener, painted her own husband, Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne), as a lady in her painting. When the painting gained popularity, Einar started to change his appearance into a female appearance and named himself Lili Elbe. With his feminism passion and Gerda’s support, Einar – or Elbe attempted first-ever male to female sex reassignment surgery, a decision that turned into a massive change for their marriage, that Gerda realized her own husband is no longer a man or the person she married before. A childhood friend of Einar, art-dealer Hans Axgil (Matthias Schoenaerts), shows up and forms a complex love triangle with the couple.

Finally, we also got our first trailer for The 5th Wave starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Liev Schreiber. The movie follows a young girl who had to survive the fifth wave of an alien invasion which is destined to destroy all of humanity. The 5th Wave comes out in theaters next year.

In the new film The 5th Wave, four waves of increasingly deadly attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Cassie (Chloë Grace Moretz) is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother.
