Michael Fassbender would like you to know: He is only too aware that movie adaptations of video games, as a genre, have a piss-poor box-office track record. In point of fact, he could not shut out that awareness even if he tried. “I’m aware of that because every single article that’s ever written about us asks, ‘Will Assassin’s Creed be the first successful video game-to-movie?'” Fassbender told me from the film’s set in southern Spain last December.

That is to say, the Oscar-nominated 12 Years a Slave actor has been duly informed of the financial under-performance of such craptacular game-to-cinema fiascos as 1997’s Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Hitman: Agent 47 (2015), Super Mario Bros., Wing Commander (1999), and 2008’;s Max Payne. But here he is, pulling double duty as star and co-producer of the big screen blow-up of the blockbuster video game franchise Assassin’s Creed. And in terms of conception and execution, he insists the new film—which reunites Fassbender with acclaimed Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel, who directed him in the Cannes Film Festival-anointed 2015 adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth—will forefront storytelling and character and shed much of the gaminess that has plagued so many other movie translations to date.

“We took elements from the video game that are the spine and DNA of what we’re doing,” Fassbender said. “But we really are breaking away from a video-game mold. That’s been a problem with some of the efforts before.”

Arriving in a season crowded with splashy Christmas releases—the Chris Pratt/J. Law vehicle Passengers, animated animal romp Sing, Martin Scorsese’s messiah-complex period piece Silence, and Star Wars standalone Rogue One among them—Assassin’s Creed finds Fassbender portraying Callum Lynch. Lynch is a misunderstood drifter-loner who’s about to receive a death-row lethal injection when he is rescued by a shadowy extra-governmental organization with seemingly unlimited technological resources and an even more shadowy agenda. click to read more »

So, the Oscars happened several weeks ago and a lot of great movies, shorts, documentaries and animations, as well as a great amount of talented actors and actresses, competed for the golden statuette. It took me some time to hunt for some videos and photos from the event due to the fact that i wanted to provide my Fassy fansite with HQ material, and here it is! Let’s talk about the Oscars 2016!

The Irish film industry scooped just one winner….. at the 88th annual Academy Awards in Hollywood despite a record number of nominations this year. Despite high hopes for Saoirse Ronan as Best Actress (Brooklyn) and Michael Fassbender in the Best Actor (Steve Jobs) category it was to be Irish short film Stutterer which won an Oscar for best live action short film. Let’s hope next year Michael gets the recognition he deserves!

This year, Leonardo DiCaprio won the Best Actor nomination for his brilliant performance in the movie – The Revenant and i would like to send him congratulations from the hearts of all Fascinators around the world!

Below, you can check some awesome HQ photos of Michael from the event:

This exclusive TV Spot was released during the Super Bowl 50′, with exclusive new scenes and a great song/soundtrack (Don’t Panic written by Coldplay and performed by Clairity).

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

The movie will be released worldwide on May 27th, 2016. For the exclusive photos and stills from this trailer, check out the gallery or click links below!

Tomas Alfredson’s The Snowman started shooting yesterday (Jan 18) in Oslo, produced by Working Title for Universal.

Universal has dated the release for October 13, 2017.

The film is the hotly anticipated adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s bestselling novel.

Michael Fassbender plays Harry Hole, an idiosyncratic detective who investigates the murder of a woman who might be the target of a serial killer who strikes with the first snowfall of the year.

The cast also features Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rebecca Ferguson.

Working Title’s Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan produce alongside Robyn Slovo, and the Swedish producer is Piodor Gustafsson of Another Park Film. Working Title founders Bevan and Fellner acquired the rights to Nesbø’s bestseller in 2011.

In addition to Oslo, the film will also shoot in Bergen and Rjukan (west of Oslo).

NRK reports that the film assembles the largest crew ever in Oslo, of 150 crew and more than 1,700 extras.

As expected, The Snowman becomes the first major international film to benefit from Norway’s new tax incentive confirmed earlier this month, enabling producers to deduct up to 25% of the production expenditure occurred in the country. The City of Oslo is also backing the production, and the production has been assisted by the Norwegian Film Commission.

Executive producers are Nesbø, Niclas Salomonsson, Martin Scorsese, Alfredson, Liza Chasin and Amelia Granger.

Alfredson’s credits include Let The Right One In and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, also for Working Title.

The Snowman marks Working Title’s second big foray into Scandinavia recently after partly shooting The Danish Girl in Copenhagen, with backing from the Copenhagen Film Fund. [source]
