* GetItOverWith: Twice in the 2015 film, forming BookEnds. In the opening battle scene the Thane of Cawdor sees Macbeth on the battlefield and sort of just gives up and allows Macbeth to whack off his head. At the end, after Macduff drops the "from my mother's wound untimely ripp'd" bomb, Macbeth goes right up to him and embraces him while delivering the "Lay on, Macduff" line, allowing Macduff to finish him off with a few gut-stabs.

** Whatever happened to Banquo's son, Fleance? It was hinted by the witches that he would become king, but he flees from some murderers at one point and never returns.
*** Some theorize that this is actually very grim foreshadowing that the events of the play are doomed to repeat themselves.

* StealthPun: Interestingly enough, ''Macbeth'' has one of these ''retroactively''. After hearing about Duncan being assassinated, Macduff screams as he runs down the hall to meet Lennox and Macbeth. He's screaming bloody murder.
