All Hail Fassbender in New “Macbeth” Stills

Man, is anyone else sick of seeing Michael Fassbender this week? The Xmen: Apocalypse star’s been on promo overload this week.

Not only have we seen him on the new poster for Danny Boyle‘s Steve Jobs, we’ve also got a sneaky look at him in Ubisoft’s Assassins Creed adaptation. But that’s all, right? Wrong! We’ve still got Macbeth to go. Continue reading All Hail Fassbender in New “Macbeth” Stills

New “Steve Jobs” Poster…Lower Your Brightness

For the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, Michael Fassbender strikes a quizzical pose on what looks like the front of the box your iPhone 6 came in.

Back in the day, the idea of two biopic’s about Steve Jobs seemed ridiculous. Today, there are three films planned at three different studios about Robin Hood. Things change. Continue reading New “Steve Jobs” Poster…Lower Your Brightness

Fassbender Goes Full Turtleneck in “Steve Jobs” Teaser Trailer

Some have called it a biopic reboot, others have called it a rehashing of old ground. Some have even called it a super violent homage to Fellini. Those last people are definitely wrong. In any case, Steve Jobs, the second telling of the Apple co-founder has garnered some controversy and curiosity in its infancy, but now it’s ready to put on its big boy pants and stylish turtle neck and strut it’s need stuff. This week marks the first real look at the project with a doozy of a teaser trailer, as reported by Deadline.

Like any good legend, the film will take on a very different perspective from its predecessor, trading in some of the shock and savagery for fluidity – more of a story than a history of you like. Well you can decide for yourself, take a gander why don’t you?

A different kettle of iPod shuffles altogether I’m sure you’ll agree. It’s a treat to finally see how Michael Fassbender looks as the titular mastermind, almost like Ashton Kutcher‘s Jobs’ older, more discerning brother. The film also stars Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels and Kate Winslet, with Scott Rudin producing and Aaron Sorkin adapting the eponymous biography by Walter Isaacson.

How do you think Steve Jobs will match up to jOBS?

First Look at Nathalie Portman in the Long-Delayed “Jane Got A Gun”

Sometimes it’s hard to differentiate between a project that is long-awaited and a project that has just been delayed for a long time and isn’t really that anticipated. Jane Got A Gun is a project that falls into that kind of confusion. Along with lawsuits galore, the film’s had three different release dates: last summer, February 2015 and now the latest and most solid release of September this year. Well it’s a good sign for those who have been anticipating this project as we now have official images from the project that stars Nathalie Portman and Ewan McGregor. Here are some shots for your perusal, fresh from the Screen Crush oven:

Jane-Got-a-Gun-1 Jane-Got-a-Gun-2 Jane-Got-a-Gun-3 Jane-Got-a-Gun-4 Jane-Got-a-Gun-5

Now this project may very well have been a long-awaited project in its original incarnation, with We Need to Talk About Kevin director Lynne Ramsay and Michael Fassbender as the antagonist, but when talks broke down the delays began. Ramsay gave way to Warrior director Gavin O’Connor and Fassbender gave way to McGregor.

That’s not to say that this won’t be a good project. Granted there are a lot of pictures of Portman looking a little bit disappointed, but there will certainly be more to this film than the shots are suggesting. I mean, there’s a guy on fire after all!

Along with Portman and McGregor, Jane Got A Gun also stars Joel Edgerton, Rodrigo Santoro, Noah Emmerich and Boyd Holbrook. release is set for September 4th, and hopefully it will stick this time around.

Excited for Jane to get gunning?
