Michael Fassbender as MACBETH

Michael Fassbender as MACBETH

Here’s a brand-new poster of man of the minute Michael Fassbender as Macbeth! My huge crush on him aside, I think this is pretty much perfect casting. Fassbender has given us a string of solid performances since his film debut in 2007 and he’s definitely improving with age, as proven by his electrifying turn in 12 Years a Slave. Expect a similar level of mastery here.

X-MEN: Days of Future Past – Final Trailer!

Well, here it is: the last trailer for X-Men: DoFP. This movie is going to be huge.

Starring an impressive ensemble cast including Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Sir Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart, X-Men: DoFP rejoins the cast of the original X-Men series with the stars of X-Men: First Class for the first time.

I was originally skeptical about this because First Class was such a breath of fresh air. McAvoy and Fassbender both did such a fantastic job with the characters of Xavier and Magneto that I would’ve liked to see their take on them carry on for good. I think it’s about time X-Men was properly rebooted. That’s what First Class should have been for the series- a new start. Stewart and McKellan are without a doubt fantastic in their roles, but a new X-Men series looked so promising.

However, I have since been converted. Although I stand firm that First Class would have been a fantastic way to reboot the series from scratch, Days of Future Past looks interesting because of its huge scope- mainly due to its expansive range of characters. However, my main concern is that this may once again become X-Men: The Wolverine Show. McAvoy and Fassbender have great chemistry together and Fassbender was without a doubt the best thing about First Class- Young Xavier and Magneto should still take centre stage.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is out on the 23rd May in the US and the 22nd May here in the UK.
