Michael Fassbender joined the stars at the Cannes Film Festival to premiere his latest, Macbeth, which he admits he didn’t even see prior to Saturday.

“I’m going to be seeing it with everyone else at the premiere … I can tell you that Marion [Cotillard] as Lady Macbeth is incredible. I know that from being across from her during the scenes. She’s mesmerizing,” Fass told Entertainment Weekly.

The critics absolutely agreed. The film got some stellar reviews, including this rave from the U.K.’s Telegraph: “After seeing Fassbender and Cotillard in these roles, the thought of ever seeing anyone else play them fades into irrelevance.”

Get used to seeing Fassbender all over the place in the months ahead. He’s got two more films coming out, The Light Between the Oceans, and the hotly anticipated biopic Steve Jobs. A trailer for the latter was released last week.

“I really loved the teaser. I feel very lucky to be a part of this movie at all. It’s exhilarating—again, for the opportunity to fall flat on my face, maybe,” Fassbender said. Given his track record to date, that’s highly doubtful.
