SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM FRIDAY

One of Shakespeare’s most compelling characters gets the dramatic big screen treatment via X-Men’s Michael Fassbender. After Macbeth, a Duke of Scotland, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that he’ll become king of his country, he gets consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife (Marion Cotillard).
