Following the first two official photos from the latest big-screen adaptation of the Scottish play Macbeth, today we have to share two character teaser posters featuring stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.

The sheets for the Justin Kurzel-directed period drama were spotted at the Cannes film festival and have surfaced on Twitter.

Fassbender plays the titular Scottish General with Cotillard playing his ambitious wife Lady Macbeth.

The upcoming big screen adaptation, backed by the producers of The King’s Speech, also stars Paddy Considine, David Thewlis, Sean Harris, Jack Reynor, and Elizabeth Debicki.

The anticipated new production is expected to arrive in the U.K. in early 2015.

Hit the jump to check out two posters, which look like they may actually be sales sheets.

‘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 truthful reimagining of what wartime must have really 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.
