The main synopsis for this movie is as follows:

While there have plenty of set photos flying around of Michael Fassbender playing Apple icon “Steve Jobs” in Danny Boyle’s upcoming biopic, there hasn’t been much in the way of official photography just yet. And while this is sort of somewhere in the middle, it’ll have to suffice.
A reproduction of a vintage poster for the NeXT line of computers, featuring Fassy as the computer company’s honcho, has surfaced online. For those of you who have been following the film thus far, you’ll know that Aaron Sorkin’s script centers around the product launches of the Mac, NeXT, and iPod in 1984, 1997, and 2001 respectively. The thing to keep in mind is that NeXT was actually the company that Steve Jobs started after he was ousted from Apple in the ’80s. It wasn’t a big hit, but elements such as its interface were influential on the industry. (source)
“Steve Jobs” opens on October 9th. Check out the poster below.
One of the most buzzed about films by sci-fi enthusiasts and movie-goers, Prometheus opened up an entirely different world filled with philosophical questions about the origin of the human race. If its own objective was to keep the fans, guessing what exactly the movie is apart, they’ve succeeded. Each part had been dissected and studied in order for fans to get supporting facts to backup their own opinions of the film.
After years of massive speculations and discussions about the possibility of another movie, Ridley Scott confirmed that he will once again return to the Prometheus universe for a sequel.
Here’s the latest Prometheus 2 Release Date and Plot Spoilers.
The famous sci-fi mastermind and 20th Century Fox, the production giant behind the film, are now working on the plot, with 15 drafts and evolving.
Scott had previously revealed that the sequel will be staying from Xenomorphs. “I think you’ve got to come back with something more interesting. And I think we’ve found the next step. I thought the Engineers were quite a good start.” Many people are left to wonder what that “next step” truly entails.
But, if you were to ask the lead actress, Noomi Rapace, she might have an idea of the direction her character might be headed in Prometheus 2.
Rapace plays Elizabeth Shaw, the only survivor among mankind in the last film. She, along with decapitated Droid, David (Michael Fassbender) set out unto space to find the Engineers and their homeworld, and find out the real reason behind their creators’ motive in ending the human race.
The star stressed that she doesn’t know exactly what Scott has planned for the followup movie, but shared, “I know that Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise…She can’t go to Earth. There’s nothing left for her there, really. She wants to go to where they came from…I think in her head, that’s the ‘Dark Paradise’. I think she wants to know answers.”
When asked about who, or rather what, the potential villain could be in Prometheus 2, Rapace said, “God? the devil? …or I don’t know where he’s going to take us.”
But, while finding the Gods, or the Engineers, and the Dark Paradise won’t be too much of a stretch for the story, ScreenRant thinks that it’s highly unlikely that the Prometheus sequel will immediately open up to Elizabeth and David arriving in the bustling destination. They believe that it’s much more probable that, “they’ll be caught up in a horrific detour or arrive safe and sound, but find the Engineers have been ravaged by a completely different threat.”
Although it will push for a quite lengthy story and movie, it does present an interesting storyline for the second film.
Prometheus 2 had initially targeted for a 2016 release date, with filming to commence in fall of 2014. However, because of the delay in production schedule, the studios has failed to announce another official release date as of yet. (source)
Among movie stars, the business model is widely known as “One for them, one for me”: an appearance in a small, heartfelt film followed up by a paycheck part in a presumed blockbuster.
Hot on the heels of her surprise best actress Oscar nomination for the intimate drama Two Days, One Night, French actress Marion Cotillard has signed on to a project that – at least at first blush – would seem to exist as the polar opposite of prestige film: a big budget live-action adaptation of the Ubisoft videogame Assassin’s Creed.
This isn’t out of character for Cotillard. The actress scored an Academy Award portraying torch singer Edith Piaf in 2007’s La Vie En Rose but also played a key role in comic book adaptation The Dark Knight Rises. In Assassin’s Creed, she’ll star opposite Michael Fassbender in an as-yet unspecified part that will reportedly span multiple movies should the first film rack up enough box-office returns to spawn a franchise.
Assassin’s Creed also marks a reunion for Fassbender and Cotillard, who star together in Macbeth, a kind of gothic reimagining of the Shakespeare classic directed by Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel, that arrives in theaters later this year. In what might also be fairly called a “one for them” maneuver, Kurzel is also directing Assassin’s Creed and seems to have succeeded in regrouping his A-list his principles.
The video game series encompasses nine different games that have reportedly sold a combined 91 million units. It follows the travails of a bartender who is kidnapped by a secret organization with ties to the Knights Templar and must travel back through time to relive the memories of his ancestors—all of whom happened to be highly trained professional killers—and retrieve historical artifacts. Production on the film is reportedly set to begin in December 2016. (source)

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed movie has officially entered production and should start shooting soon, chief executive officer Yves Guillemot announced Thursday during an earnings call.
The movie, produced by New Regency and 20th Century Fox, will hit theaters on December 21, 2016. That’s one week after the first Star Wars spinoff movie hits cinemas.
“This is a very important milestone for the project,” Guillemot said.
Though the Assassin’s Creed movie is now officially greenlit, we still don’t know much about it outside of the fact that Inglourious Basterds actor Michael Fassbender will play the lead role. The movie will be directed by Justin Kurzel, who directed Fassbender in upcoming movie Macbeth.
Talking about the movie last year, Fassbender said the Assassin’s Creed film will be respectful of the game. At the same time, however, the actor pointed out that “we also want to bring new elements to it and perhaps our own vision of things that already exist in the game.”
Ubisoft has a total of six movies in the pipeline. In addition to Assassin’s Creed, the Paris-based publisher is making movies based on its Far Cry, Rabbids, Watch Dogs, Splinter Cell, and Ghost Recon franchises. In all instances, Ubisoft will retain creative control through its Ubisoft Motion Pictures group. [source]
With Christian Bale definitively out of the running to play Steve Jobs for Danny Boyle’s next, untitled film (this week, at least), the role is wide open. And it appears that Boyle already has another choice, with Michael Fassbender in early talks to fill the vacant position.
It’s worth remembering that things are at a very early stage and Fassbender may not even get as far as making a deal for the role, but he’s certainly able to do it even if he doesn’t naturally seem to be a facial fit for the Apple icon. And let’s not forget what his superpowers could do to computers if he gets angry – iPods will be flying everywhere…
Aaron Sorkin wrote the script for the film, working from Walter Isaacson’s bestselling authorised biography of the man. The story focuses on three big moments in Jobs’ corporate life: the launch of the Mac; NeXT (which was introduced after he was removed from the company); and the iPod, launched after his triumphant return.
Seth Rogen has been in discussions to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, but there’s no sign of how Bale’s exit might shift the dynamics in future while Jessica Chastain last week denied all knowledge of rumours that she was also set for a role. Boyle wants to lock the cast down as soon as possible so as to kick off shooting early next year.[source]

Peter Maximoff has posted on his Instagram account a new video that features Peter, a.k.a. Quicksilver, playing some kind of trivia game with his friends. While trying to answer the question about the meaning of the word “lodestone”, he uses his super speed to find out online and in a book the answer to the question.
The text with the video says, “Good thing Mom kept all those weird books on magnets,” which is clearly a tease at the idea that Magneto is Peter’s father, as he is in the comics.
X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to Blu-ray and DVD on October 14.
Here is an exclusive interview about the new Michael Fassbender movie called Frank, where he talks about the filming of the movie and the ways he had to adapt to the mask. Enjoy the interview, and check out the previous post for more photos & videos from the movie!
