Subject:        Macbeth in Kate and Leopold

Kate's brother in the romantic comedy Kate and Leopold is a struggling
actor and at one point refers positively to an actress's line reading of
"unsex me here, unsex here."  Macbeth is not mentioned by name.

The comedy Orange County (2002) contains a scene in a high school
classroom involving Shakespeare and film, focusing on Romeo and Juliet.
The DVD has a promo spot that uses Macbeth to similar effect.

Subject:        More Shakespeare in Asian cinema

I have turned up the following examples:

Go! (A Japanese interracial [Korean and Japanese] romantic comedy that
cites R and J at the beginning), based on a Korean novel that makes no
reference to Shakespeare.

Agnipath (alternate spelling Agneepath)  (Indian, cites Macbeth). 1990.
dir Mukul Anand

Saed-e-Havas (1936) dir. Sohrab Modi. This was an adaptation of King
John by Shakespeare.

Aan (1952). dir. Mehboob Khan, an adaptation of Shakespeare
