Justin Kurzel (The Snowtown Murders) directed a new cinematic take on Shakespeare’s Macbeth, with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard in the lead roles of Lord and Lady Macbeth. The film is not a contemporary re-telling of the story of the Scottish lord who takes the King’s throne through murder, but judging from this first Macbeth teaser trailer, the film does take a strikingly stylized visual approach to telling the story. The footage is mesmerizing; watch below. Read More »

So far, all we’ve seen are photos with Michael Fassbender playing the titular Apple co-founder in Danny Boyle‘s forthcoming biopic Steve Jobs. But today that changes as a brief teaser trailer has just surfaced showing off the X-Men: Days of Future Past and Shame star as the late technology innovator, complete with glasses and black turtleneck. The teaser has a vibe similar to the first trailer for The Social Network. That’s interesting, since David Fincher almost directed this film, and it still has a script from Aaron Sorkin.

If you were following our dispatches from Sundance this year, you might already know to be excited for Slow West. Directed by John Maclean, the Western stars Kodi Smit-McPhee as a young man who journeys from Scotland to the American West to find his lost love (Caren Pisorious). Along the way he’s joined by Silas (Michael Fassbender), a mysterious gunslinger who guides and protects him.
As much as we love grim, gritty Westerns, part of what makes Slow West so intriguing is that it looks like so much more than that. It’s dark and violent, sure, but it’s also laced through with black humor, Biblical allegory, and even a slight a fairy tale feel. Watch the Slow West trailer after the jump. Read More »

But the materials we’ve seen haven’t been official stills or footage from the film. Now there’s something in between that gives a good idea of what Fassbender’s take on Apple’s co-founder will look like when we see Danny Boyle‘s film Steve Jobs later this year.

We know now a lot about the Danny Boyle directed, Aaron Sorkin written movie, Steve Jobs. We know the cast, we know the structure, but we don’t know what that cast looks like as their real life counterparts. Primarily, Michael Fassbender as Jobs himself.
Universal Pictures has yet to release anything official, but some fans have been able to snap some – admittedly crappy – images of the cast on set. In them, you can not-so-clearly see Fassbender as the icon. See the Michael Fassbender Steve Jobs pics below. Read More »
