One of my favorite films so far in 2014 is Frank, the movie in which Michael Fassbender plays a musician who spends every minute of every day wearing a giant fake head. That’s a pretty good way to get some attention for the film, but Frank is a very funny and genuinely wonderful movie about the process of creativity, and the fact that some of us are simply no good when it comes to making music and art.
Still, it’s a weird concept to get your, um, head around to some extent, so how about a clip featuring Fassbender’s title character in conversation with the musician (Domhnall Gleeson, of About Time and soon of Star Wars Episode VII) who desperately wants to be his musical equal? That will get across the tone of the film pretty well. If you still have questions (and you will) there’s also a great ten-minute featurette that gives a lot of background without giving too much away. Read More »

Fans are sure to have many questions after they see Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past, but one they have going in can now be answered. At the end of Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, Magneto (Michael Fassbender) sends a bullet into the spine of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). We then see Charles in a wheelchair, and we know he stays there for pretty much the rest of his life.
Fast-forward to the first footage from the sequel, Days of Future Past, in which Charles Xavier is walking again. How could that be? Well, 20th Century Fox has just released a new clip that explains. The clip also has some fantastic screaming between Magneto and Charles, putting the acting of Fassbender and McAvoy on display. Find out how Xavier can walk below. Read More »
That shot above shows off Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender as they appear in the new version of Macbeth. The film is directed by Justin Kurzel, the Australian filmmaker behind Snowtown, and stars Michael Fassbender in the title role of the William Shakespeare adaptation. Another, more striking shot is below. Read More »
You’ve seen the most recent (and supposedly final) trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. To complement it, stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender took part in a 20-minute question and answer session in which they fielded inquiries about the new movie. But this isn’t the place where Fox’s well-oiled marketing machine suddenly breaks down and all manner of secrets are revealed. No, this is just the place where you get a sense of how much fun it might be to hang out with these three actors for a little while. And that is pretty good, given their personalities and easy chemistry together. Read More »
Thursday, two new X-Men Days of Future Past posters were revealed. They were not very good. Today, nine more have hit the web. Nine. Unlike those two, these don’t appear to be theatrical. Instead these look like the $8 poster you’d purchase at Wal-Mart or Spencer’s Gifts and, surprise surprise, that actually makes them kind of cool. (Some of them at least.) Others are the same simple composition that plagued these two. Still, you’ll get some new glimpses at Ian Mckellen, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence and others. Check out nine new X-Men Days of Future Past posters below.

I’m not sure what it is about X-Men and movie posters, but apparently it’s really hard to make a good one. Remember these teaser posters for X-Men: First Class? They were terrible. And while the first posters for X-Men: Days of Future Past were actually pretty inspired, two new character posters featuring Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence and Hugh Jackman definitely take a step back. Check out the new X-Men Days of Future Past posters out below. Read More »

It’s been quite a while since we got the last full-length trailer for Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past, but this new one is well worth the wait. It’s every bit as exciting and emotional as the last one was, with tons of new footage.
Plus, of course, it includes all your favorite mutants: Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), and two versions each of Professor X (James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen). Not to mention new mutants Blink (Fan Bingbing), Bishop (Omar Sy), Quicksilver (Evan Peters), and so many more.
See the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer, plus a new poster, after the jump. Read More »
