]]>
With X-Men: Days of Future Past’s May 23rd release date almost no longer in the future, we have this third and final trailer. We already know that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine brain-travels to the past to warn the X-Men about the danger of giant, weaponized robots so this trailer takes the opportunity to show both timelines and display and the property damage that both incur. It also takes a brief moment to re-introduce us to Quicksilver outside of the context of selling microwaved bacon.

If Prometheus 2 is Times Square, then Michael Fassbender is Elmo because there are going to be a sh*tload of him in it.

Michael Green (who did such a good job on the Green Lantern script) has been brought in for rewrites that are rumored to include multiple ‘David’ androids just Fassbending all over the damn place. Green’s script is also aiming to be more in line with the original Alien films and less like whatever the hell Prometheus was. Any similarities to Multiplicity will be sheer coincidence. (The Wrap)

When Peter Dinklage builds giant robots that make the future suck ass for the X-Men, there’s only one thing they can do — time-travel Wolverine’s brain back to his 1970′s body to get the band back together. Honestly, he’d probably be better off just claw-punching Peter Dinklage in the head, but I guess this complicated plan involving jets and explosions and glass shattering and blowing up the White House and destroying a football stadium and Jennifer Lawrence going to Vietnam works too. Look, you’re much better at being The Wolverine than I am. Far be it from me to tell you how to save the future. Although if either of these plans fail, you could always just steal Biff’s Sports Almanac and become a millionaire. Just saying that’s an option.

With his head decapitated at the end of Prometheus, Michael Fassbender has been on the lookout for a replacement. He seems to have found one in the Sundance favorite, Frank. Here Fassbender stars as an eccentric band frontman who constantly wears a large papier-mâché head that he refuses to take off. Think Sugar Ray but with music that is intentionally bad.

It must be so hard to get drunk at parties in that thing.

Never one to repeat himself, Michael Fassbender is doing the opposite of showing his wang on film. In Frank, he spends the entire movie obscuring his face under a giant mascot-like, papier-mâché head as he plays the frontman for an eccentric band. So far, the film has been a hit at Sundance with reviewers noting that the big-eyed head do not limit Fassbender’s performance, instead it lends more weight and pushes the focus to his physicality and voice. A rave previously bestowed upon the Cock n’ Balls Donut in Sex Drive.

The post ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Cost A Sh*t Ton To Make According To Reports appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Reuniting the casts of X-Men: First Class and the original X-Men trilogy was an exciting prospect for 20th Century Fox. But also one that they’d have to pay for. With so many big name actors and Shawn Ashmore involved, it should come as no surprise that the budget would have to be large. However, would you ever think it would cost almost as much as Avatar?

While covering the news that Bryan Singer is headed to Canada for two weeks of re-shoots, the Calgary Herald refers to the film as “the second-most-expensive movie ever produced by Hollywood studio 20th Century Fox, behind only Avatar.”

Avatar‘s official budget clocked in at $237 million dollars and the most expensive X-Men film to date, X-Men: Last Stand, budgeted at $210,000,000. The lesson here being that if Hugh Jackman starred in Avatar, it would be the most expensive film of all time. (via THR)

Three Years After Billy Mays’ Death: Where Are We As A People? http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/three-years-after-billy-mays-death-where-are-we-as-a-people/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/three-years-after-billy-mays-death-where-are-we-as-a-people/#comments Thu, 28 Jun 2012 23:36:12 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=249428 Have we forgotten his teachings?

The post Three Years After Billy Mays’ Death: Where Are We As A People? appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
On Monday of this week, we were all reminded that it was the third anniversary of Michael Jackson. Songs were spun, tweets were sent, and heads hung in silence. Which brings us to today, June 28th — the third anniversary of TV pitchman Billy Mays‘ passing. Yes. If you’ll remember, the Infomercial King shuffled off this mortal coil just three days after Jackson. So, where is the fanfare? Where are the rememberance tweets?

Have we as a nation forgotten Billy Mays?

Rather I should ask, have we moved on from Billy? Let’s take a look at how the world has changed without its most charismatic salesman.

The Nation

Today’s headlines are dominated by the news that Obamacare has been passed by the Supreme Court. In a 5-4 victory, the Court upheld the bill which means every American will now have to buy healthcare by 2014, and those with existing conditions will no longer be faced with prejudices.

The Media

Ann Curry gave a tearful farewell on The Today Show this morning. Suspicions have been that Curry was blamed for the show’s sagging ratings, and she was reassigned out of co-anchor chair. This was confirmed by her farewell speech. Ann Curry is a peach and didn’t deserve this treatment. But what do you expect from the network that consistently stiffed Conan O’Brien in favor of Jay Leno? Thank goodness Billy wasn’t around to see this.

Technology

Since Billy May’s passing, our whites have lost their gleam, our putties are a bit less mighty, our hooks less Herculean. But that’s not to say that there haven’t been wonderful advances. We all now carry a personal assistant around with us in our pockets thanks to Apple’s Siri. It means we’ll never have to use our fingers to text again nor have to deal with the complicated mechanics involved with converting ounces to pounds. We’re practically higher beings now.

But that’s not all! The last few years have given blessed the world with several bounties. The Bladeless Fan is now all the rage (though you can’t use it to immitate Darth Vader), we can clone and genetically alter our pets, and the WorldFirst F3 project has created a racing car made from food items. It’s an edible racecar. There’s even an Amtrak train that runs on rendered cattle fat. Take that, Henry Ford!

Entertainment

Clive Owen has been replaced by a guy named Michael Fassbender, and a silent film won Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

************

But let’s now take a look at the lives Mays touched directly. Surely, their finding ways to honor the man and keep his torch lit.

Anthony Sullivan & Vince Offer

The beef continues.

It’s no secret that Mays was not a fan of Vince Offer after he publicly called him out and challenged him to a “pitch off” on the Adam Carolla Show. The feud started after Mays rose to prominence with products like his Zorbeez and Quick Chop. Then, failed filmmaker Vince Shlomi rebirthed himself as Infomercial pitchman Vince Offer, with products like ShamWow and Slap Chop — both direct rip-offs of Zorbeez and Quick Chop. The hatchet would not be buried before Mays passed away.

Instead, the hatchet was picked up by Billy’s former business partner Anthony Sullivan. Who has now reverse-Offered Offer by releasing a commercial for Sticky Buddy, a product that’s a blatant (and improved) version of Vince’s Schticky.

I have to admit, I’m pro-Sticky Buddy. It’s just a better value and Anthony Sullivan doesn’t punch women in the face. Okay. This Sticky Buddy parody may have helped put me over the top too.

His Son

Billy’s son, Billy Mays III, has found a way to both honor his father and give back to the fans. #WheresBillyMays is a website he founded where he curates interesting and respectful tributes to his dad found across the Internet. Like this awesome one:

If anything, it serves as a daily reminder that Billy Mays might be gone but he is in no way forgotten.

What the what? It’s a large-budget science-fiction epic that values its integrity more than it does mass-market appeal. Pinch me!

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, a film that is sort of an Alien prequel, but if you say that, people will judge you for some reason, has officially been bestowed upon it an “R” rating. And you know what that means…

We’ll almost certainly be catching another glimpse of Michael Fassbender‘s penis. Hello, old friend.

Prometheus was given the rating due to “sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language.” I’m pretty sure you can substitute “British genitals” for “intense images” to see what they’re really getting at.

In all seriousness, it’s great to see a movie stick to the screenwriters‘ original intent and not water down content for broader distribution. Further, it will be nice to see a smart, violent film along the lines of Alien and Terminator, rather than fare that tends to fall on one side of the line or the other.

It also helps that focus groups showed that children were unable to even pronounce “Prometheus” when ordering tickets at the box office. They were all “Promeefus.” It was adorable.

The post A Look At The Coolest Film-Related Viral Videos appeared first on Screen Junkies.

If you experienced a strange puckering in your nerdbutt yesterday, that’s for good reason. A second viral video has been released to promote Prometheus, this time focusing on the character played by Michael Fassbender. As with everything else we’ve seen from this film, it’s pretty awesome. You should check it out. Still, we really don’t have any idea what the film will be about beyond astronauts getting f*cked up.

This is a perfect example of how to market a film without spoiling it. The amount of production value used here is a turning point in the evolution of viral promotions. It’s slick and attention-grabbing and strong enough to draw the audience into the theater. I’m sure we’ll see this campaign’s influences in future viral marketing plans. Let’s take a look now at the viral videos that lead us up to this point.

Prometheus

In this second viral video, we’re introduced to Michael Fassbender’s David. Here David speaks about himself and what it’s like to be a robot created by Weyland Industries. There’s been a lot of speculation online that Fassbender would play an android in the film given his cherubic, blonde appearance. And now that cat’s out of the bag. Which teaches me to run up to the blondest person I see and check their fingerprints. Robots could be dwelling amongst us and we wouldn’t even know it.

Watchmen

This Watchmen viral video introduces the world to Dr. Manhattan by reviewing his origin and the innovations the supreme being brought to the fields of science, technology, renewable energy, and space exploration. However, he wasn’t able to convert atoms to do anything about that newscasters jacket. Even gods have their limits.

I’m starting to feel really bad for the crew of the Prometheus. Not only do they have to travel far from home and those they love, but they also need to deal with face-melting, dust storms, probably aliens, cryo-sleep morning wood, and ancient ruins collapsing on them. And that just seems to be the tip of the iceberg.

If anything, this international trailer for Ridley Scott’s maybe Alien prequel gives us a hint of the scope of this film. The large set pieces that build both the crew’s world and the alien civilization look massive and if we could figure out what the hell is going on here I’d bet we’re in for another tremendous science fiction film from Scott. Still feel bad that this bunch is being tortured, though. Then again, they’re all rather pretty and probably got unfair advantages at astronaut school. Maybe had they studied more, they wouldn’t have melted faces now. (via Twitch)

Early on in the new Prometheus trailer, you can hear a woman screaming “I’m so sorry.” I assume this apology is from some PR lackey and is intended for all the fans who had to sit through the “teasertrailers they’ve been putting out all week. Whoever invented the concept of a trailer for a trailer should be shot, and although the woman screaming is obviously alive, she sounds like she’s in a lot of pain, so that’s something.

At any rate, this trailer looks so bad ass that I’m willing to accept the apology. All is forgiven, Prometheus PR people. Let the healing begin.

The post WB Wants Michael Fassbender To Die Of Radiation Poisoning appeared first on Screen Junkies.

You probably remember the story of Alexander Litvinenko, the former KGB agent who in 2006 was poisoned with the highly radioactive substance polonium-210. As he basically dissolved to death in a London hospital room, he publicly accused the then-President of Russia Vladimir Putin of poisoning him. The question of whether or not Putin was guilty was never answered definitively, but now Warner Brothers wants to turn it into a movie.

That movie is titled Londongrad, and the studio is reportedly interested in director Rupert Wyatt (who did Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Michael Fassbender to star. Fans of Fassbender know that he’s capable of doing a role like this after seeing his unforgettable performance as the hunger-striking Bobby Sands in Hunger. Both movies would be about people who died slowly and painfully for political reasons, albeit under very different circumstances. Sounds like a fun Saturday afternoon double feature to me!

Prometheus has been cloaked in mystery so far and sadly, this still doesn’t do much to lift the veil. Warner Bros has released this first image from Ridley Scott‘s maybe-Alien prequel which shows a crew member touching down on an alien planet in the middle of a sandstorm or large scale bee attack. No word on whether this is Noomi Rapace or Charlize Theron but it’s definitely not an alien with a smaller, scarier mouth inside it’s already pretty scary larger mouth. Hopefully, we’ll know more soon as the film is slated to Comic-Con it up this afternoon.

In the meantime, check out the film’s official synopsis and the still.

Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.

Character actor Brendan Gleeson, set to make his directorial debut with his long-in-the-works adaptation of the Irish classic novel At Swim-Two-Birds by Flann O’Brien, has done what every director eventually must: Cast Michael Fassbender. Fellow Irishmen Gabriel Byrne, Colin Farrell and Cillian Murphy have been attached to the project for some time as well. A plot synopsis would be … difficult, considering that the novel is some kind of meta-fictional morass involving a writer whose novel begins to intertwine with the people in his life, but suffice it to say it’s Irish.

No word yet on which characters will be played by which actors, but hopefully they’ll all be able to get their Irish accents right. At Swim-Two-Birds is set to begin shooting in spring 2012. (ScreenDaily)

David Cronenberg‘s A Dangerous Method has debuted a trailer that is just the most Cronenberg thing I’ve seen all day. It’s got Viggo Mortensen as Mr. Pringles Dr. Sigmund Freud, forbidden eroticism, and repressed feelings exploding and scattering emotional shrapnel in every direction. No people turning into flies though. Saving it for the sequel I bet. Smart.

The cast and material both look great. Mortensen plays Freud and Michael Fassbender plays Carl Jung. Keira Knightley plays the sexed-up looney bird he plows and Vincent Cassel rocks a beard.

Violence-lovin’ South Korean filmmaker Chan-wook Park may have the male lead for Fox Searchlight‘s Stoker, his first English language film. Matthew Goode is brutally punching his way through talks to get the part, which actors like Colin Firth, Michael Fassbender, Joel Edgerton and James “I’ll Do It” Franco also circled. Goode will next be seen in this fall’s hippie-free Burning Man.

Stoker is about the strange events that happen when a young girl’s father dies and her long lost uncle moves back into her life. Will the young girl want revenge of some kind? Damn it, I sure hope so. (Variety)

Oh my God, I can’t believe how good X-Men: First Class is. It’s so good, I held my pee for at least 90 minutes because I didn’t want to miss anything. Also, I shouldn’t drink coffee in movies.

This is the best prequel ever, because it actually tells a story. It’s not just setup, although there’s plenty of that too. The characters are actually different at this stage of the story, not just younger imitations. Xavier (James McAvoy) uses his telepathy to pick up babes, and has a cocky swagger that’s in no way reminiscent of Patrick Stewart. Mystique as a child is sweet and heartwarming, and once she grows up to be Jennifer Lawrence she’s a lovely lady, not yet the cold, hard edged Rebecca Romijn version.

Kevin Bacon Shows His Skills In New ‘X-Men: First Class’ Trailer

The superpowers get to be delightful at this stage because they haven’t totally become burdens yet. The kids get to train and experience the joy of discovery, like the best parts of Spider-Man and Iron Man. It’s just plain awesome, Azazel teleporting humans to the sky and dropping them, Magneto turning a knife into a boomerang or turning barb wire into snares. It’s beautiful and tragic too. Spoiler alert, but not all the mutants grow up to be X-Men, especially not the ones who don’t have well known comic book names.

The film really emphasizes the practical uses of mutant powers. Xavier even comments that his telepathy is being blocked, like, “Oh well, it’s not working right now so I can’t help you today. Maybe I need to call tech support.” It’s momentous, triumphant, powerful and still debates all that important philosophy. It totally invalidates the prologue of X-Men: The Last Stand but something tells me no one will mind that.

I love the way Matthew Vaughn shoots. He creates Hitchcockian suspense, only instead on knowing there’s a bomb under the desk, we know that Magneto is going to bend some metal. But will it be the gun or the coin or all the metal in the room? Vaughn’s camera captures little details that make the scene feel real, like Magneto’s reflection in a gold bar.

More obvious details make the world feel even more real than the Bryan Singer films. Yeah, it’s a period piece, but using the period details grounds the film where X2 will still feel generically modern long after 2003. So they play “Palisades Park” in a go-go club and the fashion is disco. Just showing Mystique brushing her teeth gives her a real world context.

First Class is this year’s great comic book movie, up there with Spider-Man 1 and The Dark Knight, maybe somewhere in between them. (Sorry Green Lantern, it won’t be you this summer.) It’s the summer movie I’ve been waiting for. Actually, it makes me realize I might have been settling for others before this.

On the off-chance that you’re not sick of promotional material for X-Men: First Class, here’s another handful or two of photos from the movie. They’re being called “spoilers,” but unless the existence of January Jonesbreasts is a spoiler, I don’t really see it. There’s also a demonic-looking red guy in there, so maybe that’s a spoiler.

There’s also some choice shots of Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Bacon, James McAvoy, and more. So enjoy, and remember: With great power comes great responsib– uh, mutants. (Movieline)

Apparently even indie maverick Jim Jarmusch is helpless against the seductiveness of the sexy vampire movie. It’s been announced that he’s working on a “crypto-vampire love story,” and he’s gotten a pretty impressive cast to help him do it. Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender, Mia Wasikowska, and John Hurt are all going to be in his as-yet-untitled vampire movie.

I thought I was bored with vampires, but a vampire movie from Jim Jarmusch is pretty damn enticing, especially with this cast. Comparisons are being made with Jarmusch’s Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, but I don’t think we have any way on knowing if this is going to be Jarmusch at his most accessible or if this will be more like an Ozu movie with vampires. I’m happy though, because both of those sound pretty good. (The Playlist)

You know the commercials you regularly TiVO past? Now you can watch them here, on the internet. The wonders of the modern age.

First up, a new 30 second ad for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2. My opinion is: this conclusion will be epic. I don’t know why I think that. Maybe it’s the epic music, the epic explosion sequences, or maybe it’s the fact that they literally call it “The Epic Conclusion.” Who knows? I do know the last Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and quidditches into theaters July 15, 2012.

Second, it’s a new TV spot for X-Men: First Class. For some reason, the Fox marketing department hasn’t shown us any trailers, clips, character trailers, stills or set photos for this movie. Oh wait, the opposite of what I just said, times a billion. Here’s a new compilation of clips to excite your latent mutant genes. Starring James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, X-Men: First Class evolves in theaters June 3, 2012.

The post Michael Fassbender Down For Some Art Thievery In ‘Trances’? appeared first on Screen Junkies.

When it comes to super-hyped movies that haven’t come out yet, Michael Fassbender is a king among actors (and men). He’s got starring roles in X-Men: First Class and Ridley Scott‘s not-Aliens-but-yeah-Aliens film Prometheus. However, with all these crazy blockbuster sci-fi extravaganzas on his plate, it’s probably nice to relax and play a regular old human art thief once in awhile.

Fassbender is in talks to join Danny Boyle’s thriller remake Trances. He would play the leader of a gang, who teams up with a low-level employee at an art auction house to plan a robbery. However, in true “Flintstones” fashion, the assistant guy gets hit in the head and wakes up with amnesia, which threatens the whole kooky scheme. It’s a remake of a 2003 TV movie of the same name by British director Joe Ahearne.

Trances plans to film this fall, unless Boyle gets hit on the head or something. (Hollywood Reporter)

The movie X-Men: First Class is using its mutant power of releasing multiple versions of its trailer in the same day to… do exactly what I just said.

Mere hours after releasing a US trailer, Fox has released a new international trailer with some previously unseen footage peppered in. If you were wondering whether mutants and humans were gonna collide politically and philosophically in X-Men: First Class, this trailer is your definitive answer. Of course, given that pretty much every X-Man everything is about mutants and humans colliding, the extra lines of dialogue here aren’t much of a reveal. Also, why is the international version of the trailer plottier? I guess us dumb ‘mericans can’t handle too many extra purty soundin’ story-words.

James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender star as younger, cuddlier versions of Professor X and Magneto. You can see them and all your X-Friends unite in theaters June 3, 2011.

Check out a new trailer for X-Men: First Class. And unlike some of the previous X-Men: First Class trailers, this one actually has a lot of new and cool stuff. We get more of an idea of the plot, which has the X-Men working with US government against commies in some, presumably ass-kicking, capacity. There’s also a glimpse of Hank McCoy’s transformation into The Beast, and some other stuff too. I’d provide my readers with more of my insightful commentary but instead I’ll leave some of the surprises of the trailer for you to discover. You’re welcome!

I’m bursting out of your chest… with Prometheus news. According to space rumors, the Alien-tangential film has added two members to its crew: Benedict Wong (Moon) and Scottish BBC actor Emun Elliott. Verification for this news comes from Elliot’s agency and Wong’s Twitter feed. Wong recently wrote, “Prometheus…..boom!” So, either he means he didn’t get the part and is gonna blow up the set, or he’s being celebratory. I’m gonna hope/assume the latter.

Meanwhile, the blog Alien Prequel News has reported that they’ve seen recognizable xenomorph costumes on set, with some modification. So, you will be seeing the aliens in Ridley Scott‘s new Alien film, even though it isn’t exactly an Alien film. Got it? Here’s a description of what the reporter saw:

“Though security on the set is very tight with the good weather, dock doors have been open and cast and crew have been enjoying lunch outdoors. I can confirm seeing 3 aliens having lunch. Not the whole costume but blue-ish costumes and the unmistakable heads hanging around their shoulders.”

In space, no one can hear you scream, “I ordered the salami, god damn it.”

Prometheus, starring Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron, enters our atmosphere June 8, 2012. (APN)

In a stunningly innovative new marketing strategy, the people at 20th Century Fox are releasing commercials for their upcoming blockbuster X-Men: First Class called “trailers.” These trailers have generally been high-quality (unlike the “posters“), and create an atmosphere of anticipation for the movie. Nice work, 20th Century Fox!

This trailer pretty similar to the last one, but there are a few surprises. And maybe particularly sharp-eyed viewers will be able to pick out even more. And if we have any visitors whose mutant power is that they can spot differences in similar movie trailers, it’ll be like you’re watching two completely different things. I don’t think we have many of those though.

Professor Charles Xavier brought together a team of mutants to promote peace and fight prejudices from humans. However, just cause the X-Men are a team, doesn’t mean they have to look at each other. I mean, come on. Some of them look really, really weird.

In Fox’s new poster for X-Men: First Class, we see Beast, Mystique, and a bunch of non-blue muties all walking in different directions. Or standing around. Yeah, it’s a little awkward, but nowhere near the train wreck that was the last set of posters, which featured some ridiculous floating-head-on-crotch action. And I do like the tag-line, though I would have considered switching Mystique and Emma Frost. The White Queen has two things I want to see more up close, if you know what I mean, and what I mean are her long boots and cape. I also mean her boobs.

The X-Men assemble in theaters June 3rd, starring Michael Fassbender, James McAvoyJanuary Jones, Kevin Bacon and a soon-to-be-Hunger-Games-ing Jennifer Lawrence. (EW)

Magneto might be the Master of Magnetism, but Michael Fassbender is the Master of Teeth Gritting and Scrunching Up His Face. Look at him move something with his magnet-powers in this new still from X-Men: First Class below. It’s clearly hard work, though James McAvoy as Professor X seems to think whatever Magneto‘s doing is kinda awkward. As if to say, “ha, okay Magneto. I said I want to build bridges and you’re moving a bridge. So… let’s put the bridge down and maybe hang out at the mansion? Not move stuff humans need?”

Here’s another mutant leak, and I’m not referring to Nightcrawler’s green piss. (I’m assuming he pisses green, though I really have no idea.) YouTubers are struggling to keep a not-yet-released TV spot for X-Men: First Class online, but Marvel and co. keep bringing it down. If the video is still up, you’ll see a little new footage, plus the old footage you love, and a tagline saying there’ll be a new trailer on the movie’s Facebook. I wish I had the power to keep lawyers from tearing this off-line, but not even mighty Apocalypse can battle high-powered lawyers.

The post Michael Fassbender And Liam Cunningham Are Punks appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Punk rock hasn’t spawned too many good movies. I can think of Control, the Ian Curtis biopic, and 24 Hour Party People. And hopefully the upcoming Good Vibrations, which will be directed by the duo of  Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa, will be added to this list as well. Here’s what it’s all about, if you think you can handle this frontal assault on all the societal and aesthetic conventions you hold dear:

“‘Good Vibrations,’ which will focus on Belfast music legend Terri Hooley. Hooley founded the Good Vibrations record store on Belfast’s Great Victoria Street, from which a record label sprung, with bands like The Moondogs, The Shapes, Protex, The Outcasts and, most notably, The Undertones”

Hooley will be played by Richard Dormer. And Michael Fassbender, as part of his contractual obligation to appear in every movie, will be in it as well, along with Liam Cunningham. No word yet on who they’re going to play, but there IS word on who’s going to play the music: David Holmes, who also wrote the score for the fantastic film Hunger, also starring Michael Fassbender. And what’s more punk than starving yourself to death in prison? (via The Playlist)

To celebrate the ’60s-style mod look of X-Men: First Class, Total Film whipped up four vintage covers that feature the film’s hottest characters. We have James McAvoy‘s Professor X  in a Life magazine -esque profile, Michael Fassbender looking suave for an Esquire send-up, January Jones releasing them, and a group shot of McAvoy, Fassbender, Jones, and Jennifer Lawrence in her creepy Mystique make up.

The art direction of these covers is so convincing that I’m not entirely convinced these actors didn’t actually exist in the 1960′s. I’m going to need to see a picture of January Jones wearing nothing more than today’s newspaper immediately. (Total Film)
