Ask and we received! Earlier this week many of us were experiencing Fassy withdrawals and severe dehydration due to Fassbender juice being withheld from us. Then the next day, the Fassy Gods rained upon thee and Michael Fassbender and his Frank co-stars descended upon New York City for the American premiere of Frank. And like sad and innocent crack addicts, Fassinators got all tingly and happy and shit with our Fassy Fix!
We are satisfied and excited about Michael's promotion of his new movie Frank, which will open just next weekend in select cities, and then it goes into wider release after that. Michael is looking really fit and has some color in his skin, and his hair is all prudy and stuff. Let's enjoy this while we can because he will be going down to Australia in September to film his next movie, Light Between Oceans.
In regards to TIFF, they announced another 30 film titles this week and they were the Canadian film segment of the festival. At this point, I think it's safe to say that Slow West will not make it to Toronto. It's not one of those much anticipated big name productions that a lot of people are just anxious to see, so there's no need to hold it close to the chest and announce it at the 12th hour - it should have been announced two weeks ago with the other 60+ films. Anyway, I was 50/50 about its chances of playing at TIFF, this makes life easier for me and I can continue on with my plans to drink champagne and watch great movies without the anxiety of film festival Fasstrategizing.
|Michael as Frank, really, really being the life of the party!|
