This week will see a number of indie projects open on select screens across the country. We mentioned the Kristen Stewart (Twilight, Snow White and the Huntsmen) drama Equals opening this Friday, about a couple who falls in love as the result of a disease in a futuristic utopia that is devoid of feeling and emotion, and the tension it causes between them and their society.

Also opening on the indie circuit this week is a new animated movie called Phantom Boy, which takes place in the 1940s-50s and follows a young boy with superpowers who helps a wheelchair-bound policeman in his efforts to take down a notorious mob boss. The film comes from Oscar-nominated filmmakers Loup Felicioli & Alain Gagnol (A Cat in Paris) and stars French actors Edouard Baer (Chicken with Plums), Jean-Pierre Marielle (Coup de torchon, The DaVinci Code), and Audrey Tautou (A Very Long Engagement, Amelie).

New Dramatic Adaptation of ‘Macbeth’ Opening In Theaters December 4th, 2015

This holiday season is sure to be full of enough big releases to keep you busy until next Spring, especially with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Before Star Wars mania overtakes the holidays, however, there are a number of feature releases that will definitely be worth your time to go and see. One such release comes in the first week of December, a new dramatic war-adaptation of William Shakespeare‘s Macbeth from director Justin Kurzel (The Snowtown Murders, The Turning). The classic tragedy of Macbeth, a Scottish Thane who kills his king after three witches prophesize his taking the thrown but who then becomes divided by his own ambition and paranoia, was adapted for the screen by writers Jacob Koskoff (The Marc Pease Experience), Michael Lesslie (Airlock or How to Say Goodbye in Space, Skirt), and actor-turned-writer Todd Louiso (Jerry Maguire, Thank You For Smoking). Starring in the lead as Macbeth is Oscar-nominee Michael Fassbender (12 Years A Slave, The Counselor), with Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, Midnight In Paris), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, The Man From UNCLE), Sean Harris (Deliver Us From Evil, Mission:Impossible-Rogue Nation), and David Thewlis (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, The Theory of Everything) included in the supporting cast. The movie will be opening in theaters this December 4th. Check out the trailer here on MADE.
