That's Michael Fassbender Under The Giant Mascot Head In 'Frank'

This is the opposite of showing your wang on-screen. 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.

Watch The Trailer For 'Frank', Not Starring Michael Fassbender's Face

He's given his expressions a time out. 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.


Beans Are The Magical Fruit In 'Jack The Giant Slayer' Trailer

Let the giant bodies hit the floor. Bryan Singer's Jack the Giant Killer is back with a new trailer and a new title. In news that will likely piss off the rip-off artists at The Asylum, the fairytale action film is now titled Jack the Giant Slayer. They've printed up new posters and everything. This time we get more action and more story. For instance, giants can talk and there's a ton of them. I trust Singer with this material. If it were a Michael Bay movie, you know one of those giants would be freestyle rapping while it's second head beat boxes. So hold all complaints. Could always be worse.

Frank Grillo Is Essentially The Punisher In 'The Purge: Anarchy' Trailer

What if these movies were actually about people doing juice cleanses? As you know, The Purge films hinge on the concept that one night a year, those who choose to do so are allowed to be a total murdering jerk for one night only without legal repercussions or having to worry about who is going to clean all of that up. After the original grossed $90 million on a $3 million budget, it was a safe bet that we'd get The Purge: Anarchy - a different look at people dying horribly at the hands of their friends and neighbors. Now we have a better look at that. This trailer focuses more on Frank Grillo as a grieving dad who uses Purge Night as his opportunity to be The Punisher while protecting the innocent with a machine gun car. As far as machine gun car movies go, this looks like a spooky one.

This 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Trailer Should Hit All The Right Notes

Life looks kinda difficult for these guys. We got a December trailer, and then an international trailer two weeks ago, and now we're getting the first theatrical trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road. It seems to check all the boxes of what fans would want out of Mad Max sequel. In addition to staying very true to the originals in terms of production design, it also features some very hot women (Charlize Theron, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and even an actual Australian! (Tom Hardy) The film is going with a hard R for violence and whatnot, so you can expect the film to be as gruesome as its source material would suggest. Beyond that, maybe you should just scope out the trailer and see if this particular brand of film is right for someone like you. If so, you can catch it in theaters on May 15th. (Collider)


See The Trailer For Danny Boyle's Stage 'Frankenstein'

The second scariest use of morphing after that Michael Jackson video. Danny Boyle has a reputation of directing flashy and bombastic screen entertainments that grab the viewer from the beginning and don't let go until he saws off his own arm to escape. And while he's no stranger to the horror genre thanks to his work on the seminal fast-running-zombies movie 28 Days Later, it makes sense that this style would bring him back to the realm of the scary. But people were still surprised to hear that instead of doing another horror movie, he's working on a staged adaptation of the horror classic Frankenstein. Luckily, you'll be able to see this version of Frankenstein on the big screen even if you're nowhere near the stage. UNluckily, if you're in the US, you won't be able to experience one of the most interesting aspects of the production: The first showing of the play, on March 17 (the one that's getting a US release), will have Dr. Frankenstein played by Benedict Cumberbatch and the Monster by Johnny Lee Miller. Then, a week later, the actors will switch roles and do the play again. This trailer suggests this, by showing the Monster and his creator morphing into one another. Subtext! (via The Playlist)
