Watch Michael Fassbender Take a Leap of Faith in New ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Clip
Watch Michael Fassbender Take a Leap of Faith in New ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Clip
There are three things you have to know in order to be a good Assassin: how to tell who your enemies are, how to throw a dagger, and how to jump off of things. In this new clip from Assassin’s Creed, Michael Fassbender’s Callum Lynch/Aguilar knows his enemy (it’s easy to tell when they’re aiming a crossbow at you), throws a ton of daggers with deadly accuracy, and takes one death-defying leap of faith.

As far as movies go, Assassin’s Creed is kind of in a weird spot. On the one hand, the cast of A-listers  —  and a budget estimated somewhere around $200 million  —  would suggest that the studio has every intention of overcoming the terrible track record of big screen video game adaptations. On the other hand, though, executives at game developer Ubisoft have previously admitted that they do not expect the film to make a lot of money. While they have confidence in their movie, they view it as more of a marketing effort on behalf of the games, not the other way around.

‘The Light Between Oceans’ Trailer: Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander Want to Break Your Heart
The Light Between Oceans definitely looks like a Derek Cianfrance film: beautiful actors experiencing not-so-beautiful things in an emotionally devastating, intimate drama. The first trailer for the director’s follow-up to the divisive Place Beyond the Pines is here, featuring current Oscar hopefuls Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender in what could be an early contender for next year’s awards. If nothing else, this movie looks like it’s going to shatter your heart into a tiny thousand pieces.

Unlike Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie, Justin Kurzel’s Assassin’s Creed seems like it may be able to appeal to a wider audience beyond the niche video game fan base. That’s thanks in part to the casting of Michael Fassbender (who doesn’t love that guy?), the hiring of Kurzel, the sci-fi / action genre appeal, and their commitment to using practical effects and stunts when and wherever possible. But just in case you need a little more convincing, Fassbender’s got you covered.

Do you like mutants doing mutant-y things? Then you’ll love the X-Men: Apocalypse Super Bowl trailer, which features all kinds of new mutants (no pun intended) doing what they do best. Because of all the new characters in X-Men: Apocalypse, we don’t get to spend a lot of time with any one character, but this new trailer is happy to bounce around giving us a taste of just about everyone...

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Trailer: The End Is Nigh for Marvel’s Mutants
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Trailer: The End Is Nigh for Marvel’s Mutants
I’m an old enough nerd to remember when the first X-Men movie came out in theaters. At that time, comic books were not the number one driver of all things in popular culture. Bryan Singer’s X-Men certainly featured all the comic’s beloved heroes and villains, but there did seem like there was a concerted effort to tamp down some of their comic-book-ness. Everyone dressed in black. There was no spandex. The story was grounded in weighty real-world themes like prejudice and vengeance. It was the X-Men you knew, but watered down just a bit. It was a rum and coke, not a shot of gin. X-Men: Apocalypse, in comparison, looks like a bottle of Beefeater.
New ‘Steve Jobs’ Trailer: Is Michael Fassbender an Oscar Frontrunner?
New ‘Steve Jobs’ Trailer: Is Michael Fassbender an Oscar Frontrunner?
We weren’t sure what to think about Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic after the first trailer. Yes, it seemed dramatic and fascinating, but also highlighted a performance by Michael Fassbender as the former Apple CEO that didn’t really look or sound at all like Steve Jobs. Could the film overcome that hurdle? After the film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival earlier this month to rave reviews — specifically calling out Fassbender’s “enthralling” and “stunning” — it may be time to fully buy in to this project. If you’re left doubting, a brand new trailer has arrived to help convince you.
