Michael Fassbender is undoubtedly one of our most exciting actors, making any project he considers just as exciting a prospect. The actor’s next potential project may see him teaming up with the director of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and producer Martin Scorsese for a detective thriller based on Jo Nesbo’s acclaimed novel The Snowman.

Yes, we’re all very excited for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (and The Hateful Eight…and The Revenant), but there’s another film we should all be pumped about that’s hitting theaters this winter: Macbeth. 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.
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.
