    Michael Fassbender has 6 movies (a Jessica Chastain tea) coming out this year.

    Steve Jobs, Macbeth, The Lights Between Oceans and The Untitled Malick movie all have a potential for awards (and the first 3 to get him a best actor nom), and there is also Slow West and Trespass Against Us.

    Jake has Southpaw, Everest and Demolition, all of which have a possibility of awards nominations and box office potential.

    Tom Hardy has Mad Max: Fury Road which will probably be a box office hit, London Road, Child 44 and his award bids The Reverant and Legend.

    who will have a better year in term of box office? who will get an Oscar nom? will Jake once again have one of the most raved performances of the year and still get snubbed? discuss.

    These are three of my favourite actors currently working today. I can’t wait to see these films. Tom Hardy looks like he will have the biggest year, but if Gyllenhaal has a performance equal to the two from this year, the academy won’t be able to ignore him much longer. He is on such a streak of good projects and performances, that he deserves recognition for it.

    I think Mad Max: Fury Road looks utterly annoying so I’m not seeing that. Fassbender to me as the more interesting projects coming out, Steve Jobs and Macbeth are the ones I’m looking forward to the most.

    Box Office: Tom Hardy

    Oscar: Michael Fassbender

    Undecided about Jake (I’ll wait and see).

    Jake Gyllenhaal’s career is giving me DeNiro vibes. Nightcrawler was his Taxi Driver… Too bad it was snubbed in so many categories because of how little of a movie it was. Southpaw is his Raging Bull even though I’m not trying to compare Martin Scorsese to Antoine Fuqua of all f*cking people. Everest has the perfect ensemble and we all know humans vs. nature movies are so hip right now. So yeah Gyllenhaal has the most interesting career trajectory at least to me.

    Tom Hardy’s performance in Locke and The Drop were outstanding. That’s the Tom Hardy I like. I’m not sure if I will like Mad Max but I’m definitely looking forward to his lead role in the new Kathryn Bigelow film and, obviously, The Revenant.

    Michael Fassbender is AMAZING but I’m not particularly interested in any of his upcoming films. Steve Jobs is just one of those films that I will watch with very low expectations. Danny Boyle is very hit or miss for me.

    I’m gonna pick Jake because of his severely undeserved snub this year and how that will propel him to a future win perhaps next season!

    Fassbender, Hardy and Gyllenhaal—what a terrific trio of underrated actors!

    Fassbender did this before in 2011 (Shame, Jane Eyre, A Dangerous Method, X-Men: First Class), so it is cool that he is doing it again like Jessica Chastain in 2011 and 2014.

    Someone might end up like Benedict Cumberbatch in 2013 though (The Fifth Estate, August: Osage County, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, 12 Years a Slave), in which they cannot punctuate their prolific year with any awards or nominations.

    Hardy’s got the best chance of box office with Mad Max and Oscar with The Revenant (as he’s in the supporting category).

    Fassbender’s got a good chance at lead nom with Steve Jobs (and a healthy box office), but can’t be so sure, biopics are never the sure things we think they are.

    Gyllenhaal’s certainly going to have a fantastic year but it’s hard to know how he’ll do with box office or Oscars. He tends to get looked over so I wouldn’t count on it, but he might end up undeniable.

    All I know I’m looking forward to all of their new projects with great interest. Hard to pick a favorite.

    I’ll watch Cianfrance. Of the two feature films he’s made, Pines was one of my favorites. Plus, I dont want to miss Rachel Weisz. Cant say I have high hopes for it’s box office but Michael could be stellar. I’ll probably pass on Jobs, unless it starts picking up some critical notice.

    I’m usually up for most “boxing” films. We’ll see how Jake does here. As for Everest, it’ll be interesting to see if Samper can bounce back from Two Guns. It has what I think is an interesting cast.  Same with Demolition, plus a director with more gravitas.

    And then there’s Tom Hardy. Loved this guy for a long time. I think the Box Office is probably his. Also, he has George Miller. A great move. I’m not chomping at the bit to see Revenant. But there is DiCaprio, and I’ve seen everything he’s done. It’s celebrated director should bring viewers in. Also, violent revenge movies have done well for Clint then and now, and many of the classic martial arts films around.

    The grand triflecta!

    My 3 favorites have a big year ahead, perhaps this time they get acknowledged. I’m certain that they’re among the best of their generation but still need to blow up with the mass, the critics and the awards. Who’s gonna take the chance?

    Also I’m glad to see the love spread in here for this trio 🙂

    “Michael Fassbender is AMAZING but I’m not particularly interested in any of his upcoming films. Steve Jobs is just one of those films that I will watch with very low expectations. Danny Boyle is very hit or miss for me.”

    Aaron Sorkin wrote it though. (Lol that he hadn’t heard of Michael Fassbender, and that he thought no one would care.) Apparently the script is three long protracted scenes or something, so if that’s true Boyle’s really gonna have to discipline himself.

    I have early hopes that Fassbender could end up with two Oscar noms for Lead. It’s incredibly unlikely but I’d desperately love to see it happen.

    So unlikely that it’s impossible, actually.
