“Steve Jobs,” a drama about Apple’s co-founder starring Michael Fassbender, will screen as the centerpiece feature at the New York Film Festival on Oct. 3, according to an announcement from the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
The film, directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin (based on the bestselling Walter Isaacson biography), is considered to be one of this fall’s major Oscar contenders. It co-stars Kate Winslet and Seth Rogen (as Apple’s Steve Wozniak).
“Jobs,” which is being released by Universal Pictures, opens nationwide on Oct. 9. But the pic is also rumored to be playing at the Toronto Film Festival in September.

Cinephiles are on standby because on Tuesday and Wednesday, Tiff and Venice will unveil their initial wave of titles, getting the fall festival season in high gear. However, the New York Film Festival is getting slightly ahead of them today with this interesting bit of news. Organizers have announced that Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs," penned by Aaron Sorking, and starring Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and more, will screen at Nyff as part their Centerpiece film. However, one thing to note is that word "premiere" is nowhere to be found in their press release. Perhaps this means that Venice and Tiff will get the movie first? We'd put some pretty good money on it, and don't count it out of appearing in Telluride's always surprising lineup. "Steve Jobs" opens on October 9th. ---------- New York, NY (July 27, 2015) – The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today the selection of Steve Jobs, »

It's apparent that Singer won't be over-relying on CGI environments for X-Men: Apocalypse, as this latest Instagram pic of a huge statue of the Egyptian God of the desert, Set, confirms. We know En Sabah Nur hails from Egypt, so it's assumed these sets will be used for his origin story, or perhaps somewhere he returns to over the course of the film.

With production on X-Men: Apocalypse still going strong in Montreal, director Bryan Singer has shared yet another photo through his Instagram account, showcasing one of the massive practical sets. The filmmaker is seen being dwarfed by an Egyptian statue. But he wouldn't offer any details about the set itself or how it fits into the X-Men: Apocalypse story. He did say on his social media account that, "This takes me back to #raidersofthelostark #notallgreenscreen #xmen #xmenapocalypse."
This photo comes just a few days after Bryan Singer posted a photo with Sir Patrick Stewart on the set, which fueled speculation that he would return in a cameo role as Charles Xavier. The actor wasn't seen in costume, but he was watching footage with the director and another filmmaker, Jason Reitman, who was putting together a live read of The Big Lebowski at Montreal's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. It was never »

X-Men: Apocalypse has been billed as a new direction for the series without any appearance by 20th Century Fox's original cast - but if so, what was Sir Patrick Stewart doing on the set of Bryan Singer's next film?
The director posted an image of himself sitting with the Professor Xavier actor and filmmaker Jason Reitman on Instagram.

Stewart is apparently in town to host a gala at the Just for Laughs comedy festival, but a cameo surely isn't beyond the realms of possibility.
An old mutant getting a fresh face in the upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" is that of Cyclops. James Marsden played the role in the original trilogy and returned for a cameo in last year's "X-Men: Days of Future Past".
In the new take though, it's Tye Sheridan taking on the part and he was asked by Indiewire how his version differs to that of previous iterations:
"It's quite similar actually. It's a nice progression with the roles I've played in the past. It's forced me to use everything I've learned playing all the characters I have. My character is angry and a bit lost, which I feel like is where I've met a lot of my characters -- in these sort of young life transitions where they're struggling to figure things out about themselves.

So you've probably heard that "X-Men: Apocalypse" stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Olivia Munn and friends did a Live Read of "The Big Lebowski" on Friday night during the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. But have you actually heard any of it? The photos online are great, but the audio really ties the room together.
Thankfully, someone posted a portion of the event online -- you can't see a blessed thing, but you can hear the portion of the reading right after Olivia Munn, who was meant to voice Tara Reid's Bunny, steps on Jennifer Lawrence's lines. Apparently Olivia's script was highlighted with the Maude lines, even though that's the part Jennifer was meant to read on stage. (It was Julianne Moore's role in the movie.) In this 6-minute video, you can hear Jennifer mock-complain, "I've been waiting for three hours to get to my part, and now it's happening, »

Last year, X-Men: Days of Future Past brought mutants together from the original X-Men franchise, and from the 2011 prequel X-Men: First Class. Next year, fans will be introduced to more younger versions of iconic characters in X-Men: Apocalypse, with Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Jubilee (Lana Condor), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcralwer (Kodi Smit-McPhee). While discussing his new indie film The Stanford Prison Experiment, Tye Sheridan offered some insight into his Cyclops character, played by James Marsden in the original trilogy. When asked how his version of Cyclops is different than previous iterations, the actor had this to say, in an interview with IndieWire.
"It's quite similar actually. It's a nice progression with the roles I've played in the past. It's forced me to use everything I've learned playing all the characters I have. My character is angry and a bit lost, which I feel like is where »
During an interview with IndieWire to discuss his latest film The Stanford Prison Experiement, Tye Sheridan got onto the topic of X-Men: Apocalypse, which is set to see him take on the role of Scott Summers, a.k.a. Cyclops.
“There’s no franchise I’d rather be a part of and doing sort of as my first foray into larger budget stuff than X-Men,” said Sheridan. “When you go back and look at all the movies — the history of X-Men is so rich and the characters are so rich and they have such depth, and there’s such depth to the stories. I feel like most franchises and superhero films don’t have that. I think that’s why this franchise is not just special to me, but also just so special in general. I’m so lucky and grateful to be a part of it.”

This is the Pure Movies review of Slow West, directed by John Maclean and starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, Michael Fassbender, Ben Mendelsohn, Caren Pistorius and Rory McCann. Written by Dr. Garth Twa. Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is a tenderfoot from Scotland, hapless as an albino heifer, in the sprawling American mythic west, once upon a time, in search of his sweet-cheeked gal, Rose, who’s running from the law. Nearly mowed down by a renegade injun, he’s soon looking down the expulsive end of a confederate shooting-iron. But a shot rings out, and it’s not his. A battered outlaw in a bandana named Silas (Michael Fassbender) has saved his britches. »

Michael Fassbender is truly dedicated to his craft. On Friday night, during the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, Fassbender took up the shaggy mantle of the Dude, portrayed by Jeff Bridges in the Coen brothers’ classic The Big Lebowski, as part of Jason Reitman’s live script-reading series. To get into character, Fassbender donned a pair of roughed-up shorts and a slouchy sweater and toked three J. Law–rolled cigarettes — the kind that may or may not have been packed with the Devil's lettuce — during the read. “I think Fassbender went a little too Method on this one,” said Patton Oswalt, who played John Goodman’s bombastic Vietnam vet Walter. “I hope TMZ isn’t here.” Because Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is filming in Montreal, Fassbender and co-star Jennifer Lawrence were tapped for Reitman’s live-read. Lawrence portrayed Julianne Moore’s Maude. Dennis Quaid played the wheelchair-bound Lebowski, »
