Ever since the release of Prometheus, Ridley Scott has been teasing fans with the idea of a sequel. Like most prolific directors, Scott always has a few projects kicking around and some never come to fruition — especially sequels. But after months of talking up the possibilities, Scott has confirmed that Prometheus 2 is officially his next project.
It feels like Michael Fassbender has been attached to an Assassin’s Creed movie for years, to the point where we began to wonder whether this movie would ever actually exist (it at one point was scheduled to open in theaters three months ago). But...
Steve Jobs isn’t following the typical biopic formula — director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin constructed the film in three acts to mirror the launch of three iconic Apple products. As such, it will hopefully offer riveting glimpses into the life of the Apple co-founder and CEO. But the format of the film isn’t the only unconventional aspect of production. According to co-star Michael Stuhlbarg, Boyle and Sorkin had a very interesting and somewhat unusual approach to shooting the film.
“Artists lead and hacks ask for a show of hands,” Michael Fassbender’s Steve Jobs declares in the new spot for Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs movie. Written by Aaron Sorkin (and that does sound like some Sorkin-y dialogue), the film appears to offer a more flawed look at the life of the man behind Apple, who was often revered as a technological saint.
When an Entertainment Weekly cover revealed our first look at Oscar Isaac as the titular villain in X-Men: Apocalypse, most fans were not impressed, drawing comparisons to cheesy Power Rangers villain Ivan Ooze. But, director Bryan Singer is back to defend the costume, saying it’s actually “very similar” to the comic book design, and has shared some new hi-res X-Men: Apocalypse photos at the same time.
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve gotten some sneak peeks at X-Men: Apocalypse via photos in Entertainment Weekly, featuring new characters like Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse, Olivia Munn’s Psylocke, and Alexandra Shipp’s Storm. But what about the other new, young mutants? 20th Century Fox has released a gallery of high-res photos featuring Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, Cyclops and more.
Oscar Isaac? Is that you? Yes, apparently it is. Isaac plays the title villain in the upcoming X-Men sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse. The character, an immortal mutant from ancient Egypt, is typically portrayed with an extremely elaborate harness, weird wire lips, and crazy blue and chalk-white skin. You had to wonder if director Bryan Singer would go another direction with Apocalypse to make Isaac more recognizable to viewers.
The first trailer for the new Steve Jobs biopic (titled Steve Jobs) didn’t show much from the film, specifically Michael Fassbender’s performance as that late Apple head. Today, a new trailer has been released that gives us a much better look into the film (and the life of Steve Jobs) and that’s both a great thing, and a not-so-great thing.
20th Century Fox is finally releasing the Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past next month, re-incorporating the scenes featuring Anna Paquin’s Rogue, which director Bryan Singer had to leave on the cutting room floor. Singer previously explained that the Rogue scenes were excised because they were “extraneous,” but that didn’t stop fans from wanting to see the alternate version. Fox has released a clip from the Rogue Cut to give you a little taste of what that version will look like.
If this trailer for Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of Macbeth is any indication, we’re not looking at our average Shakespeare movie. The upcoming film starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard as Lord and Lady Macbeth looks incredibly intense and visually stunning — definitely something you want to put on your must-see list.
