There was lots of news and updates about Michael Fassbender this week. From his Slow West winning an award at the Sundance Film Festival, to the first excellent images of Michael with flat-ironed hair and a bow tie on set, to news about the release date for Steve Jobs (Oct. 9, 2015). Universal Studios sure isn't playing around with the Jobs film, they have straight up released the premiere date at a precise time after the key Fall season North American film festivals conclude. October is a great month to release films primed for Oscar consideration because they fall in the midst of these high profile festivals: Telluride (Sept, 4-7), Toronto (Sept, 10-20), and New York (Sept 25 - Oct 11). And it looks like the festivals have tweaked their schedules this year to be more courteous to each other and have no crazy overlapping to allow attendees to enjoy each festival. Michael could attend all three to support both MacBeth and Steve Jobs. We'll practically be tested to be sick of him - but that will impossible if not such an offensive thought!
If ever there was a year that Michael was going to be huge, is this year! With Slow West coming out of the gate strong from Sundance, the speculation that MacBeth will screen at Cannes, Trespass Against Us later this year, and the Steve Jobs film, Michael is bound to be on the hit list for loads of awards and nominations next awards season, and we'll be here supporting him all through the craziness and excitement!
