While we dive deep into Hollywood’s poster offerings each month to look at the best and worst studio-produced one-sheets, it’s time to put our money where our mouth is. At The Film Stage, we believe that if some care is taken, a poster can be a distinct creation unto itself that’s worthy of observation and admiration. Today is the return of our feature, Alternate Art, in which the talented designer Midnight Marauder creates an original, alternate poster for one of the month’s releases.

This week we have four for Justin Kurzel‘s visually stunning take on Macbeth, which enters limited release this Friday and expands in the coming weeks. Starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, the posters are intended to convey the darkness that consumes our leads. Check them out below, and see our interviews, review, and more here. We’ve also included Jed Kurzel‘s full score.
