Director Joel Coen of the Coen Brothers who is married to McDormand, is presenting the film in black and white.

Lord Macbeth walks through a desert, an unknown hand pics up a crown and Lady Macbeth looks over her shoulder in the trailer.

"By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes," a voiceover says.

Co-stars include Corey Hawkins, Brendan Gleeson and Harry Melling.

The Tragedy of Macbeth is coming to theaters on Dec. 25 and will be available to stream on Apple TV+ starting on Jan. 14.
