    Michael Fassbender Joins Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' With Noomi Rapace

    Breaking. Michael Fassbender has joined Noomi Rapace as the second official star of Ridley Scott's "Prometheus." Fassbender's devastating turn in the 2008 drama "Hunger" still keeps paying dividends for the 34-year-old of German/Irish descent. After smaller 2009 turns in "Inglourious Basterds," and "Jonah Hex," plus the lead in "Centurion," Fassbender's career has finally hit top speed in the last six months landing the lead in "X-Men: First Class," a coveted part in Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire," and now a major spot in Ridley Scott's sci-film that was once set to be a prequel to his 1979 classic "Alien," but now seems to have morphed into s...

    Matthew Vaughn Hated The Leaked Image Too & More From The Cast Of 'X-Men: First Class'

    Michael Fassbender & Kevin Bacon Talk Shop; Also, Jennifer Lawrence Is All Kinds Of AwesomeTalk about dominating the news cycle: after months of relative inactivity, the 20th Century Fox promotional machine went into full gear yesterday -- perhaps a bit before was originally intended -- in support of the still-filming "X-Men: First Class," with set visits, official stills and a poster all hitting the net, hot on the heels of the underwhelming first look at the cast in full costume/make-up. Now, some of the members of the cast have been talking about the film as well, with Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Kevin Bacon (villain Sebastian Shaw) and ...

    Now That's Muuuuch Better: More Realistic 'X-Men: First Class' Photos Appear Online

    Director Matthew Vaughn Says He's Never Felt This Much "Pressure" On Making A MovieOK, this is muuuuuch better. Recent photos of Matthew Vaughn's "X-Men: First Class" leaked on the Internet with the cast in costume and well, they essentially looked like cast off test images from Brett Ratner's "X-Men: The Last Stand" -- definitely not anyone's favorite of the "X-Men" franchise. Heralded as a back-to-basics prequel set in the '60s, the leaked image -- apparently it wasn't ready for public consumption, but once it's out it's out -- seemed to be antithetical to the idea of a group of mutants first finding one another and eventually becoming part...
