First Glance at Michael Fassbender in 'Slow West'

Michael Fassbender is starring in and producing Slow West, filming now in New Zealand. The film is about a young man, played by Kodi Smit-McPhee, who travels west in search of a lady he loves, and Michael is a mysterious guy he travels with. I reckon that filming will end just before Christmas, that way he could enjoy the holiday with family, and then head back down under to film MacBeth.

In other news, I found this at Awards Watch ....

The award was presented to him by the director of Amsterdam Film Week, Fulko Kuindersma, on the closing night of the event. 12 YEARS A SLAVE was voted Best Film by the audience of Amsterdam Film Week.

I went to New Zealand in September and fell in love with the country. If you want some photos I can email them to you)))))
I'm also planning to go in January. Maybe Michael can stay a little longer?)))))
I wonder where they are filming. The nature in New Zealand is just so amazing. It can be both powerful and tender and appealing and dominating.

@Vera: The only place that came up is Twizel on the Southern Island (and as I will be there in the middle of November, maybe he's still there - but with my luck...).
Interesting how many pictures of this Malik film appeared but here we have to do with less than half a dozend pictures.

Seeing the other pictures from the set, he is really enjoying himself. It's great to be able to go to work and do something that makes you happy. Makes me think I really need to look for a new job. I don't hate my job, I just don't look as happy as Michael. :)

I know what you mean Martha. Michael seems to really love his life. While it's still not perfect, with invasions into his private life and personal business, I'm sure he feels truly blessed to do what he loves so much, and get paid ridiculously for it to boot.
