The new Macbeth looks like it's based off the original play and setting, rather than a reworking/reimagining, so not sure how it will differ from the 2015 version, which was also based on the original. I'd personally rather see them tackle a different play, as I think Macbeth has been overly done. If they're going to go for a historical setting though, I'd prefer they remain historically accurate, regardless of how old the text is.
I respect that, I also will tend to only watch things that interest me regardless of their level of popularity/unpopularity and haven't seen a number of recent mainstream films. I've heard Denzel Washington has had some strong performances, although I've only seen three: American Gangster, Training Day, and The Book of Eli, and was impressed in all cases. I highly recommend the first two, although if crime films aren't your thing then perhaps not. There's a very good fanedit of The Book of Eli by Q2 as well.He never showed up in a movie I was interested in so I don't care. I like specific movies about things I'm interested (not necessarly movies that are on top lists) and he never fit the criteria, he wasn't even in any big franchise so it's easier to overlook him, I am just pointing out to the fact that it's funny that I didn't see anything starring the guy.
I don't like white/blackwashing and that is off puting to me generally. I mean he can still be great but I'd stay with Fassbender version.
