Michael Fassbender still totally pumped for ‘Assassin’s Creed’ movie

Fassbender

Until I read this report, I had completely forgotten that Michael Fassbender was involved with an Assassin’s Creed movie. But indeed, he is! And he seems pretty stoked. Wouldn’t it be lovely if this flick was good? I mean — it seems like such an executable concept. But you know. Hollywood. Video games.

First ‘X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST’ TRAILER: Hope You Love Time Travel!

X-Men - Days of Future Past.

Full disclosure: I’m at work, and I sort of hurried through this trailer before putting it up for you. I don’t really have any in-depth comments besides, “eh” and “meh” and “whatever”, which is sort of par for my Bryan Singer course. I’ll give it a rewatch later.

What do you folks think?

’12 YEARS A SLAVE’ TRAILER: Steve McQueen’s latest gets a theatrical teaser.

12 Years a Slave

I haven’t seen any of Steve McQueen’s movies, though it is not out of lack of want. However, because of that I haven’t really kept tabs on the good sir and his efforts. You know who has? Eduardo Pluto, who was totally up my ass (I moaned a little, whatever) about this trailer dropping. So here it is.

Thoughts? Deep thoughts? Sociopolitical commentary? Ratings on the trailer, based on a one-through nineteen bags of popcorn scale?

PROMETHEUS: Big Things Have Vacant Beginnings [PLUS YOUR REACTION]


It’s a bit of a stretch, asking anyone to come out of Prometheus this weekend without an overwhelming sensation of feeling hollow.  It’s a rather empty, desolate film in all the ways that matter:  setting, visuals, character – even plot.  There just isn’t a lot there.

Compounding the problem is that the marketing machine behind the film has inadvertently already given you 90% of it.  Walking out of the theatre tonight or tomorrow will feel like you’ve just seen an extended trailer, albeit a two hour one.

More ‘PROMETHEUS’ IMAGES. ALL THE TIME.

Phew. I was frightened. We hadn’t been blasted across the nips with Prometheus  images in like, a day. Maybe even two. Here’s some off the digi-presses, courtesy of Advertisement (Entertainment) Weekly.

New viral video for PROMETHEUS’s David drops. I just tumbled head-first into the uncanny valley.

Holy shit. I don’t even know. I watched this video three times, and by the second time I was ready to destroy every single electronic device I own. There’ve been plenty of these Weyland Industries “commercials” floating around but this is definitely the first one that’s creeped me the fuck out. Michael Fassbender, you are truly a terrifying man-shark-actor. I mean, your acting is choice and your portrayal of an android is top notch, but I also want to kill you with fire.

Hit the jump to say DIE HELLBEAST Happy Birthday, David!

Michael Fassbender May Star In Ridley Scott Directed Adaptation Of Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Counselor’

Well if this isn’t a collection of various fielded talents right here. Dope director, talented writer (though I’m not insane for the dude), and one serious man crush of an actor. Could they!, could they really be converging?

Fans Made ‘X-Men: First Class’ Posters Are Retro Swank.

The X:Men First Class posters released by Fox sucked. Fact, not opinion. Dope website that I sometimes snag from, Sucker Punch, issued a challenged to its readers. The decree read (I’m paraphrasing), “Talented motherfuckers, we can do better than this.”

And they did.

Check out some of the results.
