A crafty subversion of the Western genre, Slow West is in turns hypnotic, lyrical, and absurd. It’s a pitch-black dark comedy centered on a hopelessly romantic quest that’s more interested in episodic beats than it is a cohesive narrative, which means it won’t be for everyone. Slow West is not badly paced—not at all—but it does present a challenge to the viewer. Full Story

Macbeth was screened at Cannes to very strong reviews for everything – the performances, the cinematography, the pace of the story… And for a minute there it looked like it might contend for the Palme d’Or. Instead, it ended up being Jacques Audiard’s Dheepan. That doesn’t mean it won’t be a player at the Oscars though. Full Story

Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender looked like they were having a great time together last night at the amfAR gala in Cannes ahead of the premiere of Macbeth at the festival, one of the most highly anticipated films in competition. Two new clips have just been released showing Fassbender’s Macbeth at his coronation, looking well on his way to derangement, and then later in battle with some curious directing decisions, at least to me. Full Story

The first trailer for the Steve Jobs biopic written by Aaron Sorkin, creatively titled Steve Jobs, is here and it does not show much beyond Michael Fassbender in a black turtleneck and glasses as Jobs. The movie is still shooting, so it’s no surprise there’s not much footage available, but I do like the tone this trailer is setting. Full Story

To bed, to bed, to bed She only says “to bed” once here in the preview but you’ll recall from English class that it’s almost like a mantra for her at that point. Full Story

Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown It’s from a different Shakespeare play but I’ve always been fascinated by this quote. And I wonder if it’s still true. Because the power now is in the money. And, well, Rupert Murdoch may have had a few sleepless nights here and there but, come on, do you really doubt that he sleeps well? Anyway, the quote. Full Story

It’s been a while since we’ve had any new pap shots of Michael Fassbender. When he shows up though, he doesn’t disappoint. Here he is in New York on Saturday with Alicia Vikander. They fell in love last year in Australia while shooting The Light Between Oceans. As you can see, that hasn’t changed. Full Story

Michael Fassbender’s passion project, the Western Slow West, is currently making the festival rounds and is expected in theaters later this year. It’s the feature film debut of Scottish writer/director John Maclean and it’s produced by Fassbender’s shingle, DMC, and it looks very, very cool. Full Story

After a very public, turbulent pre-production phase, the Steve Jobs biopic written by Aaron Sorkin—disappointingly titled Steve Jobs and not Computer Jesus—is officially underway and shooting around San Francisco. After being plagued by casting problems ranging from a leading Full Story

Casting for Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic was messy even before Sony vomited bitchiness all over it. Now that it’s been re-homed at Universal, things are hopefully less dramatic around the production office, but the casting merry-go-round continues to turn. The female lead has yet to be cast since the Sony Hack exposed that Natalie Portman was less “in talks” and more “lobbying for” the part. Full Story

The Sony hack is the gift that keeps on giving. First it was a laundry list of reasons why making Adam Sandler movies was slowly crushing people’s souls, and now it’s a series of email exchanges between Sony co-chief Amy Pascal, producer Scott Rudin, Aaron Sorkin, and some agents that’s providing a window into the breakdown of a major production deal. Full Story

When I wrote about Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikandr’s side-by-side lunch the other day, I asked you about side-by-side eating and whether or not it means something. All of you noted that you don’t side-by-side with someone at a table unless you’re side-by-siding them in bed. Full Story
