I have just added over 500 HD/Blu-Ray quality screen captures of Fassy from his 2001 adaptation of Jane Eyre, as well as HQ stills and posters. This is probably my favourite role of Michael’s – what do you think of his portrayal of Rochester?
I have just added HD/Blu-Ray screen captures, stills, promotional images and posters of Michael from his 2011 film X-Men First Class. Enjoy!

A couple of exciting Friday night release date announcements, the biggest one being that the movie based on Ubisoft’s popular video game Assassin’s Creed, starring Michael Fassbender, will be released over Memorial Day weekend 2015, taking the date of May 22.
So far, no director has been announced for the movie but with a date in place, one would expect that will change shortly. Also, 20th Century Fox has stepped in to distribute one of the more anticipated video game movies in recent years through their deal with co-producer New Regency Pictures. They also have grabbed a date that’s wide open with no competing releases although it will open three weeks after Marvel’s The Avengers 2 and anyone who knows the general release date for previous “Star Wars” movies might be thinking J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII could be released a week before Memorial Day that same year.
Everyone from Sam Worthington (really) to Orson Welles has taken on “Macbeth,” and the Shakespeare play that dare not say it name has been adapted countless time for the stage, television and multiplex. Well, when it comes to the latter, (quality) movie versions have been a bit fewer and far between, so the news that Michael Fassbender might take the lead in “the Scottish play” certainly has our attention.
The actor is attached to a new version of Shakespeare’s work that will be directed by the fast rising “Snowtown” director, Justin Kurzel. Penned by Todd Louiso (the director behind “Love Liza” and “Hello I Must Be Going“) and Jacob Koskoff (who co-penned “The Marc Pease Experience” with Louiso), the story will be the same, set in the 11th century and will be presented in the original dialogue. However, this version will be more “visceral” and contain “significant battle scenes.” And this production is coming together pretty fast.
Plans are underway for the film to shoot later this year, and will seemingly be bumping plans for Kurzel’s adaptation of John Le Carre’s “Our Kind Of Traitor” which had Ralph Fiennes and Mads Mikkelsen lining up. A bit of bummer, but still, Fassy + Macbeth is a combo we won’t argue with. And speaking of the actor who is currently lensing “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” this is nice meaty project to dive into after the VFX extravaganza. As for Lady Macbeth? Talks are apparently underway with an unnamed “Hollywood leading actress.” Suggestions?
I have just added Blu-Ray/HD screen captures, stills and posters from Michael’s 2008 film Hunger, where he portrays Irish republican Bobby Sands, who died during a hunger strike in 1981. This was Michael’s first collaboration with director Steve McQueen, with the second being 2011′s Shame and the next being upcoming film Twelve Years a Slave.
