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 »
Frank is a really great and strange movie, and you should watch the trailer right now.
Actually, let me rephrase: Frank is a great movie about a strange guy, but the movie itself isn’t all that weird. Sure, it features Michael Fassbender as the title character, a poet/musician who wears a giant fake head. Like, always wears a giant fake head. But the entry point to the story is a wannabe songwriter played by Domhnall Gleeson, who guides us into Frank’s hyper-artistic world. Through him we see both the appeal and deep oddity of Frank’s life, and the movie deploys some unique comedy along the way. Read More »

Sony’s Assassin’s Creed adaptation got off to a pretty good start, snagging the white-hot Michael Fassbender to produce and star all the way back in 2012. Now it may be taking another big step forward with a new director.
Although nothing is confirmed at this point, a new report indicates that Daniel Espinosa is the top pick to take over at the helm. The Swedish director is known for his Joel Kinnaman thriller Snabba Cash (a.k.a. Easy Money) and the Denzel Washington / Ryan Reynolds actioner Safe House. More details after the jump.

Michael Fassbender has two movies out this weekend, sort of, and they couldn’t be more different. One is the awards season re-release of 12 Years a Slave, a grim drama in which Fassbender plays a cruel slave owner. The other is Frank, a comedy debuting at Sundance in which he plays a musician who constantly wears a giant fake head.
Directed by Lenny Abrahamson (What Richard Did), Frank follows a young musician named Jon (Domhnall Gleeson) who falls in with an eccentric band. The leader of the group is Fassbender’s Frank, who manages to exude magnetism and power even through that crazy-looking headpiece. The first clip has just hit the web, and you can see it after the jump.

How about some juicy Star Wars rumors for your weekend? These come from The Hollywood Reporter, who say much has changed with Star Wars Episode VII since original screenwriter Michael Arndt left the project last year. Reportedly Arndt wanted the film to focus on the offspring of the original trilogy characters (Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo) while director J.J. Abrams wanted Episode VII to focus on those characters, keeping the offspring in the background until Episode VIII and Episode IX.
Meanwhile, while this shake up was going on, Abrams continued to take meetings with all kinds of actors. Pretty much anyone that’s previously been reported (Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael B. Jordan, etc.) took a meeting as well as new names Michael Fassbender, Adam Driver and Hugo Weaving. Read More »

Many directors make their narrative feature debuts on small, making dirt-cheap indies with no-name leads. Not Adam Smith. The TV and music video helmer has set white-hot actor Michael Fassbender to star in his gangster pic Trespass Against Us, and The Chemical Brothers to score.
The script, by Alastair Siddons, has Fassbender following the opposite trajectory of his The Counselor arc: Instead of sliding into a life of crime, Trespass Against Us‘s protagonist will try to climb out of the one he was already born into. Hit the jump for plot details and more.
