In the past decade, Michael Fassbender has appeared in many fantastic movies that range from sci-fi horrors like Prometheus to costume dramas like Jane Eyre. But the film that catapulted him to the world’s attention was undoubtedly the historical epic 300.

Amazingly 300 was Fassbender’s feature-length movie debut and it quickly unveiled the star as being a charismatic attraction on our cinema screens. And whilst there may be many reasons why the 2006 movie grossed over $450 million and even inspired online games, it’s undoubtedly Fassbender’s incredible physical appeal that helped the success of comic book adaptation.

Fassbender underwent an intensive physical makeover in order to play the long-haired sinewy character of the Stelios. The highly skilled and charismatic Spartan character was one of the best things about the movie and although the training made the star physically ill, it showed that he didn’t lack the dedication necessary to make this movie such a big success.

300’s release marked a watershed moment in the evolution of historical dramas. The movie used ultra-stylised filming techniques to recreate the high-contrast visuals of the comic, and the gruesome battle scenes have inspired many other hard-hitting historical movies like The Eagle and Centurion.

It’s also been interesting to see how the 300: March to Glory PlayStation game gave gamers a chance to get closer to Fassbender’s character. And not only do online casino sites like Betway prove that the biggest slots jackpots pay out thousands, but they’ve also included a Gladiator slots game that illustrates just how widespread this trend of historical action movies has become.

All of this must undoubtedly have been a surprise for Fassbender who started the filming of 300 with very little in the way of movie experience. We all remember how he managed to light up our screens by playing Burton Christenson in Steven Spielberg’s amazing TV series Band of Brothers, but few would have foreseen how the star would swiftly become one of the biggest Hollywood actors.

And seeing as 2016 marked the year where Fassbender and his current beau Alicia Vikander became one of the industry’s power-couples, it seems that his influence will continue to grow beyond the likes of 300 and those online slots games!

A new trailer and Poster for Assassin’s Creed have been released:


Here’s the trailer for Trespass Against Us, and poster below:



Synopsis:

TRESPASS AGAINST US is set across three generations of the Cutler family who live as outlaws in their own anarchic corner of Britain’s richest countryside. Chad Cutler (Michael Fassbender) is heir apparent to his bruising criminal father, Colby (Brendan Gleeson) and has been groomed to spend his life hunting, thieving and tormenting the police. But with his own son, Tyson (Georgie Smith) coming of age, Chad soon finds himself locked in a battle with his father for the future of his young family. When Colby learns of Chad’s dreams for another life he sets out to tie his son and grandson into the archaic order that has bound the Cutler family for generations. He engineers a spectacular piece of criminal business involving a heist, a high-speed car chase and a manhunt, which leaves Chad bruised and bloodied and with his very freedom at stake. With the law cracking down and his father tightening his grip, Chad is forced into increasingly desperate measures. Featuring incredible performances – and an astonishing score by The Chemical Brothers – TRESPASS AGAINST US is at once an exhilarating crime thriller and a profoundly moving story about love and family

The first trailer for Assassin’s Creed is out and it looks epic! The movie is set for release on December 21st.


Michael Fassbender is in talks to star as a serial killer in Broad Green Pictures’ “Entering Hades” with Storyscape Entertainment and Fassbender’s DMC Film producing, Variety has learned exclusively.

“Entering Hades” is based on John Leake’s true crime novel about Jack Unterweger, a celebrated Austrian journalist and best-selling author who led a double life investigating murders by day and killing by night – amassing a body count of 11 people across multiple continents.

Producers are Storyscape Entertainment’s Bob Cooper (“John Tucker Must Die”) and Richard Saperstein (“1408”) along with Conor McCaughan and Daniel Emmerson of DMC Film.

Alexander Dinelaris, who won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar as one of the four screenwriters on “Birdman,” is rewriting the screenplay with Fassbender eyed to star. Bill Wheeler wrote the original script.

“With Bob and Richard’s vision and Michael’s keen ability to bring captivating characters to the big screen, we are confident that ‘Entering Hades’ will be an entertaining thriller that draws a big audience,” said Gabriel and Daniel Hammond, CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Broad Green Pictures.

“Entering Hades” is the first project announced by Broad Green Pictures and Storyscape Entertainment since the companies signed a first-look deal last year.

“This is exactly the kind of elevated and commercial material that we are looking to produce through our deal with Broad Green,” Cooper and Saperstein said. “Michael Fassbender is one of today’s most talented actors and we are thrilled to be in partnership with him, as well as Conor and Daniel, to bring this extraordinary story to the screen.”

Mister Smith Entertainment will handle international sales.

Broad Green was founded by the Hammond brothers in 2014. It’s released “A Walk in the Woods,” “99 Homes,” “I Smile Back” and “Knight of Cups”; upcoming releases include Bryan Cranston’s “The Infiltrator” and “Bad Santa 2.”

Storyscape has completed production on “Maudie,” starring Ethan Hawke and Sally Hawkins. Saperstein recently began pre-production on the remake of “The Blob,” starring Samuel L. Jackson.

DMC was founded by Fassbender and McCaughan in 2011. They won a BAFTA for their first production, John Maclean’s short film “Pitc

h Black Heist” and produced his debut feature “Slow West,” which won the World Jury Prize at Sundance. DMC recently wrapped shooting on “Assassin’s Creed,” which will be released by Fox this fall and stars Fassbender, Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Irons.

Fassbender received Oscar nominations for Best Actor for “Steve Jobs” and Best Supporting Actor for “12 Years a Slave.” He’s repped by CAA.

Good news for Assassin’s Creed, via Tracking-Board.com

The actioner won’t hit theaters until December, but it appears as though producers feel they may already have a hit on their hands.

The adaptation of the blockbuster video game Assassin’s Creed from New Regency isn’t set to bow until December, but The Tracking Board has learned that the company is officially underway with plans for the sequel, ASSASSIN’S CREED 2. With star Michael Fassbender on board, the stage is set for a new action-adventure franchise starring the two-time Academy Award nominee.

The sequel sees familiar names from the yet-to-be-released title’s production team, with Jean-Julien Baronnet producing for Ubisoft Motion Pictures, Frank Marshall producing through his Kennedy-Marshall Company, while Fassbender and Conor McCaughan will produce through their DMC Films shingle. Matt Phelps will oversee for Ubisoft, while Pam Abdy will oversee for New Regency.

Director Justin Kurzel’s forthcoming action-adventure story stars Fassbender and Marion Cotillard – the three of whom worked together previously on last year’s critically acclaimed MacBeth. Fassbender plays Callum Lynch, a man who discovers that he’s the descendant of a secretive society of deadly assassins, who are at war with the Knights Templar. Through a machine, Lynch becomes able to tap into the memories of his ancestor Aguilar, an assassin in 15th century Spain. Commanding his ancestor’s incredible skills, ability, and knowledge, Lynch sets forth to take on the Knights Templar in the present.

The film takes its name from the mega-popular Ubisoft video game series, though the storyline involving Lynch/Aguilar was created specifically for the film. The movie won’t be a retelling of games’ stories, but will exist in the same world.

That the studio is already laying the groundwork for the sequel is hardly surprising, given the international appeal of both the game and its star, Fassbender. But skeptics of video game-based films may interpret this move as a sign of confidence from those involved that, unlike previous attempts to bring popular video game properties to the big screen, Assassin’s Creed could not only work – but thrive. The hefty $125 million budget, which includes financing from co-financiers like Alpha Pictures International and Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment, is all the more reason to get started on a sequel, as Regency Enterprises, distributor 20th Century Fox and the bevy of investors involved will want to pounce any momentum that the film finds at the box office.

The mostly positive reactions to the first images of Fassbender as the Lynch/Aguilar character may have further fueled producers to initiate plans for a sequel. Previous attempts to launch franchises based on Tomb Raider, Prince of Persia, and Silent Hill have yielded lackluster results, to say the least, but as the pictures of Fassbender spread across social media, they quickly prompted some to announce that 2016 could be the year that video game adaptations break their losing streak – the latest trailer for World of Warcraft from Duncan Jones has somewhat quelled that hopeful spirit.

Assassin’s Creed is set to hit theaters on December 21st, 2016.

The first Trailer for The Light Between Oceans is out. Based on the book by M.L Stedman, the movie is set for release on September.


On a remote Australian island in the years following World War I, lighthouse keeper Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender) and his wife, Isabel (Alicia Vikander), discover a boat washed ashore carrying a dead man and a two-month old baby.
Rescuing the infant, they make the decision to raise her as their own but the consequences of their choice prove to be devastating.

Also starring Rachel Weisz and produced by David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford, The Light Between Oceans will be released later this year.
