How Macbeth's kingship is shown?

Try to discuss how Macbeth's kingship is shown in the film by Roman Polanski as well as in the play. How does R. polanski show us his way of governing, his way of acting like a king, from the beginning where he is mereley a thane, and when he learns he will be king. How do the witches and Lady Macbeth make him kill Duncan? 

Thx :)

I would say that one of the biggest differences between the versions is the character Ross.  Ross is manipulative too, so it is not just Lady Macbeth and the witches who manipulate him.  This change, making Ross important, influences who influences Macbeth.
