Michael Fassbender is currently in production on Assassin’s Creed, the long-awaited adaptation of the hit video game series. But “Progress requires sacrifice,” or at least that’s what we’re led to believe in the first photo from the set of the film, which reunites Fassbender with his Macbeth director Justin Kurzel and co-star Marion Cotillard — and with that kind of talent in front of and behind the camera, we may be looking at the first genuinely good video game adaptation.

What a year to be Rebecca Ferguson. After impressing audiences on the small screen in The White Queen, Ferguson made the leap to the big screen and blew some minds with her action-packed role in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Since then, we’ve been eager to see her do more, and it looks like Ferguson is about to take over the movie world, with potential roles in Prometheus sequel Alien: Paradise Lost and crime thriller The Snowman — both starring Michael Fassbender.

New ‘Steve Jobs’ Trailer: Is Michael Fassbender an Oscar Frontrunner?

by ScreenCrush Staff September 17, 2015 @ 9:59 AM
We weren’t sure what to think about Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic after the first trailer. Yes, it seemed dramatic and fascinating, but also highlighted a performance by Michael Fassbender as the former Apple CEO that didn’t really look or sound at all like Steve Jobs. Could the film overcome that hurdle? After the film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival earlier this month to rave reviews — specifically calling out Fassbender’s “enthralling” and “stunning” — it may be time to fully buy in to this project. If you’re left doubting, a brand new trailer has arrived to help convince you.

Starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard and directed by Justin Kurzel (who is also directing the pair in Assassin’s Creed), Macbeth just keeps dropping amazing trailers, promising one of this winter’s most visually stunning and dramatically compelling films.
