“Toil and Trouble # 2” Something Wickedly Awesome Comes

Toil and Trouble # 2 is part of the ongoing series about the three witches from the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare. The comic artwork of Kelly and Nichole Matthews provides stunning visual images and a unique style. Writer Scott gives clear motivation to the Weird Sisters and their part in the tale of Macbeth as readers learn about why they started their prediction. It should be noted that the narrative boxes of the writing may seem a bit long, but do allow for the reader to get past exposition to the meat of the comic. Toil and Trouble # 2 inspires the reader to reflect on how much powers the Sisters Weird really have on fate.

Cannes 2015: ‘Macbeth’ and the reliable charm of Michael Fassbender

The final film in competition, Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth delivers a spectacle of dripping blood, slow-motion battle scenes, sprawling Scottish highlands and Michael Fassbender. Fassbender stars as the Scottish warrior turned regicide and paranoid monarch, who after a particularly bloody battle has a vision of three witches predicting he will be King of Scotland. Macbeth starts out as an honorable soldier loyal to King Duncan (David Thewlis) and decides to only become king the “natural way”. However, after imprudently sharing the witches’ prophecy with his wife, played by Marion Cotillard, Macbeth finds himself constrained by her ambitious power lust.
