After months of bumps in the road, Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic is finally heading into production. Universal has announced ‘Steve Jobs’ as the official and not-very-surprising title for the film, along with a full cast lineup and breakdown, as well as the official plot. It’s all happening.
Last night, we reported that 20th Century Fox was shaking up its schedule, maneuvering sequels to ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ into new positions. However, one of the films given a new release date is a project that continues to perplex us: the adaptation of the popular video game ‘Assassin’s Creed,’ which was first announced ages ago as a franchise for Michael Fassbender. Will we ever see this movie or will it continue to keep shifting further and further backwards on Fox’s schedule until it vanishes altogether?
The other day we brought you the not-so-shocking revelation that Adam Sandler is the most overpaid actor in Hollywood (for the second year in a row!), but what about the actors who made 2014 a great time at the movies? We’re talking about the leading men and women who aren’t necessarily the highest-paid, but who have brought in the most money at the box office—proving their successful ability to draw millions of people to see their films, sometimes more than once. It probably won’t surprise you to learn that your imaginary BFFs Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are at the top of the list of the highest-grossing actors of 2014.
Universal quickly moved to snatch up the rights and are putting the project on the fast track. Now, in addition to Michael Fassbender as Jobs himself, the studio has set Natalie Portman to star in the film.
Less than a week after Sony dropped Danny Boyle’s SteveJobs film, Universal has picked it up for U.S. release.
Although Jobs is the focus of Sorkin’s script, which will be directed by Danny Boyle, it’s actually Jobs’ daughter Lisa who is the “heroine” of its story.
While you'd think 'X-Men: Apocalypse' would focus the majority of its attention on its titular character, Fox and director have some different ideas. When you've got two of the hottest stars in Hollywood contractually obligated to star in your movie, you make them the center of the action. And, that's what is reportedly happening with the 'X-Men: Apocalypse' script, which is being developed around Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence and the burgeoning romance between Magneto and Mystique.
Another day, another development for Sony's Steve Jobs biopic! Christian Bale abruptly dropped out of the ambitious film only yesterday, but director Danny Boyle and the studio have already set their sights on one of the few leading men who can match his intensity: Michael Fassbender.
We're still reeling from Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' which initially looked like another X-disaster along the lines of 'The Last Stand,' but proved us so wrong with its incredible cast, story and special effects. While we wait for the film to hit DVD and Blu-ray in October, and 'X-Men: Apocalypse' to drop in (sigh) 2016, let's take a look at all the movie magic happening behind the scenes of the summer's epic X-Men movie in this VFX breakdown.
Pretty much everything you need to know about the Michael Fassbender-starring 'Frank' is contained in the above video. The offbeat Sundance pick is about a musical dreamer who joins up with a hip band -- The Soronprfbs -- and is intrigued by their nutty leader (Frank, played by Fassbender), a genius who insists on wearing a giant fake head all the time. He's...a little strange.
