Trailer Of The Week - Enemy Of Man

There's more than just a couple of key players that make director Vincent Regan's Enemy Of Man, the latest big screen adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth, feel a bit Game Of Thrones-ish. The trailer definitely gives off a whiff of George R. R. Martin, replete as it is with big swords, bloody duels and moody camera angles. Regan's previous work as an actor in the likes of 300 and Clash Of The Titans further suggests a potential mythological slant on the famous play. Sean Bean proves his credentials as Macbeth with a solid reading of the "tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow" speech over the first half of the trailer, and fellow Thrones actor Charles Dance certainly looks the part too. Rupert Grint arguably has the most to prove here, still having to shake off his Gryffindor robes without a genuinely defining role since the Harry Potter franchise drew to a close three years ago. It'll also be interesting to see how this Kickstarter-funded version competes with Justin Kurzel's Macbeth featuring Michael Fassbender in the title role, as both are set for release in 2015. Either way, we'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to film versions of the Scottish play next year.
