Our hopes were once high for “Assassin’s Creed.” Bringing together the “Macbeth” team of director Justin Kurzel and actors Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard seemed like an inspired choice for the video game adaptation but the result looks like every other insipid, CGI drenched blockbuster, just with a better than average calibre of actors playing along.

Earlier today, 20th Century Fox held a presentation where they showed off new footage from Logan (March 3, 2017), Alien: Covenant (May 19, 2017) and War for the Planet of the Apes (July 14, 2017), three of the studio's most highly-anticipated movies. Members of the New York press were present for this big event, and we already showed you how the press reacted to the 40 minutes of Logan footage that was shown. While the studio didn't unveil nearly that much footage from this Alien prequel, it was received just as well, as you can see in the early reactions below.
We have rounded up a number of Twitter reactions, which were largely positive. Angie Han of Slashfilm called the footage "gory, terrifying and disgusting," and she can't wait to see the rest. CinemaBlend's Sean O'Connell said this movie will be a "full blown bloody horror film," that falls in line with the original 1979 classic. Fandango's Erik »
Michael Fassbender will soon star in the action adventure film “Assassin’s Creed,” based on the video game by the same name, but he’s already appeared in many films this past year, including “The Light Between the Oceans,” “X-Men: Apocalypse” and then “Trespass Against Us,” a family drama that premiered earlier this year. “Trespass Against Us” follows three generations of the Cutler family who live as outlaws in their own corner of Britain’s richest countryside. Fassbender plays Chad, an heir apparent to his father Colby (Brendan Gleeson), but soon starts looking for another life as his own son Tyson (Georgie Smith) comes of age. It co-stars Sean Harris (“Prometheus”), Lyndsey Marshal (“The Hours”), Rory Kinnear (“Quantum of Solace”) and more. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
This is Adam Smith’s debut feature film. »

From the outside looking in, 20th Century Fox’s grand X-Men franchise appears to be in a state of flux following the launch of Apocalypse earlier in the year. Barring the runaway success of Deadpool, production on the Channing Tatum-fronted Gambit solo movie has effectively ground to a halt, and unless the studio irons out contract extensions with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, the uncertainty swirling around the core X-Men timeline may prompt Fox to reboot the series as we know it. The show must go on, as the old saying goes.
Speaking of which, Le Journal De Montréal has unearthed a report (via Cbm) that suggests 20th Century Fox will be bringing together the X-Men as early as next year – May 2017, to be specific. The outlet claims Fox will circle back to Mels Studios for the next film, extending its streak there to »

Walton Goggins is in final negotiations to join Warner Bros, MGM and Gk Films reboot of “Tomb Raider,” the latest adaptation of the popular video game starring Alicia Vikander as the iconic character Lara Croft.
WB recently announced the pic would be released on March 16, 2018 with Norwegian director Roar Uthaug helming.
Goggins would play the antagonist in the film.
MGM joined the project in 2013, acquiring rights to the popular video game to develop the feature in partnership with Graham King’s Gk Films. King, who acquired “Tomb Raider” in 2011 from Square Enix, will serve as producer.

The original “Tomb Raider” video game was released in 1996 by London-based Eidos, which is now part of Square Enix. The games have sold over 35 million units. Square Enix released a reboot in 2013 with a younger Croft (age 21) being sent off »

Waking up before the alarm goes off can be irritating, especially when there’s still another 90 years to go until you need to get out of bed. This is the situation in which Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt find themselves in the new science-fiction adventure Passengers, when they are roused prematurely by a system malfunction a quarter of the way into their journey through deep space. At least there is one thing on board their spacecraft that will assuage any intergalactic disorientation: an offbeat British character actor.
In this instance, it’s Michael Sheen, who provides drinks and gentle banter in a sleek, deserted bar. A pan down to the nuts-and-bolts of this bartender’s lower half reveals »

Classic Sega video games such as Altered Beast and Streets of Rage will be part of an adaptation blitz for film and TV.
The next big videogame-to-movie adaptation is but a few weeks away, as director Justin Kurzel is aiming to steer the long-mooted Assassin’s Creed movie to box office gold. Michael Fassbender is starring in that one, of course.

Whether Assassin’s Creed hits or misses, though, there’s a queue and a half of further videogame properties heading to the big screen. And a couple more names have just been added to it.

There was certainly a lot of sex and romance on the big screen in 2016. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling's musical magic in La La Land had us swooning while Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin very twisted sex scene in Deadpool makes us blush just thinking about it. And we're happy to report that Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender not only found love on set, but they're still going strong long after the cameras stopped rolling on The Light Between Oceans. With that in mind, check out our gallery below of the seven hottest movie couples of 2016. Warning: Looking at this gallery may cause very Nsfw thoughts. »
Unlike comic book films, Hollywood adaptations of video games have never truly received their moment in the spotlight. While franchises like Resident Evil have found financial success, critical reception for these projects often tends to be sour, leading to the belief that there is a "curse" on video game adaptations. In the recent interview with IGN, the cast of the upcoming Assassin's Creed discussed their approach to the film and how they think it will break the curse plaguing films of this nature. Michael Fassbender is producing the film, along with starring as the protagonist, Callum Lynch. Fassbender acknowledged the problem, but it doesn't obscure his desire to make the best movie possible, "I was naive to be honest, it's only in a hindsight in one, sort of journalists to tell you there's a curse on video games. Then you go through the films that have been made... It's only »

Arnold took the director prize for her movie, which Variety’s reviewer described as “part dreamy millennial picaresque, part distorted tapestry of Americana and part exquisitely illustrated iTunes musical.” The film’s Sasha Lane won best actress, and Robbie Ryan’s cinematography was rewarded with the outstanding achievement in craft award.
Among the guests at the Bifa ceremony, held at London’s Old Billingsgate, were Michael Fassbender, Jamie Dornan, Martin Freeman, Naomie Harris, Anna Friel, Lena Headey, Patrick Stewart and Danny Boyle. The awards were hosted by Jennifer Saunders.

“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” is a proverb whose simple existence proves the fact impressionable souls will do so without fail. This monthly column focuses on the film industry’s willingness to capitalize on this truth, releasing one-sheets to serve as not representations of what audiences are to expect, but as propaganda to fill seats. Oftentimes they fail miserably.
We all know that December isn’t actually the end of the 2016 movie year (at least not in cities with names other than New York or Los Angeles that must wait until February for some buzzed-titles), but it is the month where those coveted Oscar-bait movies get their qualifying run.
The Founder (limited 12/16, wide 1/20), The Comedian (limited 12/2, wide 1/13), I Am Not Your Negro (limited 12/9, wide 2/3), and Hidden Figures (limited 12/25, wide 1/6) are just a handful with more discussed below that fit this mold. This is what happens when you »

20th Century Fox has released an extended film clip from Assassin's Creed, which debuted at this year's at The Game Awards. The film clip focuses on a carriage chase scene and look pretty damn good if you ask me. You can check out the clip below.
Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day. »

We’ve been introduced to Callum Lynch and his long-lost ancestor, Aguilar; we’ve taken a deep dive into the Animus, the crown jewel of Abstergo Industries that enables users to essentially relive different historical epochs in the blink of an eye; but now, 20th Century Fox and New Regency have unlocked the latest Assassin’s Creed promo that sees lead hero Michael Fassbender give chase.
Those of you who tuned in to The Game Awards 2016 yesterday evening will have no doubt laid eyes on the clip already – likely multiple times, given the sheer amount of ad breaks – but it’s an electrifying teaser nonetheless. Entitled ‘Carriage Chase’, this promo looks to have been pulled from one of the movie’s key action sequences, as Fassbender’s deadly assassin tracks down a missing boy being held against his will.
