Michael Fassbender poses for pictures on the blue carpet at the X-Men: Apocalypse VIP screening held at Event Cinemas George Street on Monday (May 16) in Sydney, Australia.
The 39-year-old actor’s film is set to hit theaters later this month in the US on May 27.
When asked by ABC News if he read the comics as a kid, he responded, “I didn’t read much at all as a kid much to my parents’ dismay. My sister was a great reader — she was reading coming out of the womb. She had a book in her hand, whereas I was kind of the opposite.”
Michael has had a busy year filming, so he added he’s ready to take some time off.
“I think after this job, I’ll take a little time off and get better at surfing,” he said.
Here is the full synopsis: In the years following World War I, Tom Sherbourne (Fassbender), a young veteran still numb from his years in combat, takes a job as lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, a remote island off the coast of Western Australia. As the island’s sole inhabitant, he finds comfort in the monotony of the chores and the solitude of his surroundings. When he meets the daughter of the school’s headmaster, Isabel Graysmark (Vikander), in the local town of Partageuse on the mainland, Tom is immediately captivated by her beauty, wit and passion, and they are soon married and living on the island. As their love flourishes, he begins to feel again, their happiness marred only by their inability to start a family, so when a rowboat with a dead man and infant girl mysteriously washes ashore, Isabel believes their prayers may have finally been answered. As a man of principle, Tom is torn between reporting the lost child and pleasing the woman he loves, and against his better judgment he agrees to let Isabel raise the child as their own, making a choice with devastating consequences.
Rachel Weisz also stars in the film, in theaters September 2.
