Good advice for anyone unlucky enough to find themselves stalked by a terrifying killing machine in the world of Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien’ series. Twentieth Century Fox has released a new poster, the second following the debut poster featuring a familiar Xenomorph and a single word: “Run”. This new poster is similar in style with its green and black colouring, and depicts a familiar Xenomorph egg, this time with the word “Hide”.
The list of contenders to succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond has just gotten a little shorter. In an interview with GQ, X-Men star Michael Fassbender said he’s not going to be 007. He told the British edition of the magazine, “Bond! Is this rumor still going round? … You would have thought I was out of the bookies by now.” And then when he was asked if he’d consider playing Bond if offered, he said, “To be honest, no. As an acting role, I think Daniel has done such a cracking job in this age group.”
Yes, the Australian is one of the biggest box office stars in the world, but that’s largely thanks to his multiple appearances as Wolverine across the X-Men universe. Berry’s lengthy career adds ballast to her box office total, but other than playing Storm, it’s being Jinx in Bond flick ‘Die Another Day’ and ‘The Flintstones’ that put her this high on the list.
20th Century Fox have invested a lot of money in Assassin’s Creed being the first video-game adaptation to truly crack the mainstream cinema audience. Based on Ubisoft’s hugely successful action-adventure game series, ‘Assassin’s Creed’ has been directed by Justin Kurzel and stars Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch, who discovers that his ancestor Aguilar was an Assassin from 15th century Spain. With a cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams, Jeremy Irons, and Brendan Gleeson and a budget of anywhere between $150 and $200 million there are clearly huge expectations for ‘Assassin’s Creed’.
Daniel Craig’s days as James Bond could be numbered. Who could take on the role of Ian Fleming’s gentleman spy next? Based on the bookies’ favourites (with a few humble suggestions of our own) here are the actors who we think could potentially be 007th official Bond…

The new biopic Steve Jobs doesn’t necessarily paint a flattering portrait of the late tech visionary. As played by Michael Fassbender, Jobs is often portrayed as cold and calculating, a businessman so determined to succeed that his colleagues, friends, and family members suffer as a result. Still, the director and cast of the film have nothing but the utmost respect for the former Apple and Pixar CEO, who passed away in 2011. “He’s like Henry Ford, but multiplied by a thousand,” said Fassbender, referencing the Ford Motor Company auto innovator (watch above).
Most biopics follow a certain formula — but in the Jobs-ian spirit of innovation, Steve Jobs invents its own. Written by Aaron Sorkin, the drama about the late Apple founder takes place in three acts, each taking place right before Jobs unveiled one of his game-changing personal computers: the Macintosh, and NeXT computer, and the iMac. Yahoo Movies talked to the cast and crew — including stars Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen, director Danny Boyle, and writer Sorkin — about how their unusual biopic came together. So if I could put them all in the minutes leading up to one of his product launches, when they’re all backstage, then maybe I’ll have done something different, and maybe that thing will be good.” Boyle praised Sorkin’s approach of “shining a spotlight so intensely on a realtime 40 minutes,” while co-star Michael Stuhlbarg noted that the film could have easily been a stage play.
Michael Stuhlbarg, Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet in ‘Steve Jobs’ (Universal) Steve Jobs was the master of launching a new product, but now, his friends and family are doing their best to throw cold water on the premiere of the new film about the late Apple co-founder. According to a new report in the Wall Street Journal, Jobs’s wife and Apple colleagues have been unhappy with Steve Jobs, a new film written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle.
