Watch Ben Affleck Attempt To Replicate Christian Bale's Infamous Batman Voice

26 May 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

The Dark Knight is widely considered the definitive Batman film -- I think Batman Begins gives it a run for its money -- though one point of criticism most Batman fans would agree upon is Christian Bale's over-the-top Batman voice. In an age when Tobey Maguire was using his normal voice as both Peter Parker and Spider-Man (how did Mary Jane not figure that out from the start?), the "Christian Bale voice defense" was that at least Bruce Wayne had the foresight to disguise his voice, even if he took it in an odd direction. 

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice featured a new Batman in Ben Affleck, and with him, a new take on Batman's voice.  While Christian Bale always sounded like he was going to lose his voice, by shouting all the time, or had lost it, when deeply whispering a lot, Affleck's take sounds »

Watch Ben Affleck Hilariously Imitate Christian Bale's Batman

26 May 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ben Affleck pokes fun at himself by doing his impression of Christian Bale's Batman voice for last night's Red Nose special on NBC. The charity was hosted by Chris Hardwick and featured a ton of celebrities from different fields giving their time to raise money for children all over the world. Affleck came on to answer questions from kids in the comedy sketch and the results are pretty hilarious. The fan debate over Affleck's Batman vs. Bale's Batman is no secret and will often elicit violent verbal jousts from said fans, so it's always nice to see the Batman stars have a little fun with the debate.

In the clip, a child asks for Ben Affleck to do the Batman voice and Affleck obliges, but the child is not satisfied. "No! Do it the way Christian Bale does it," the child says. Ben Affleck looks at the camera for a second, »

The Best They Ever Looked: Christian Bale in “American Psycho”

25 May 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It goes without saying that Christian Bale is far and away one of the best “shape shifters” in Hollywood.   The lengths he goes for roles from both a mental and physical perspective are second to none.  Unfortunately I predict he has health problems later in life.  There’s just no way what he does is safe.   I mean we’re talking gaining 40-50 lbs for roles and then losing 40-50 lbs for roles.  And he does this so often that it’s practically expected.  If you’ve seen him in The Machinist where he was emaciated to the point of literal danger compared to

If Leonardo DiCaprio Only Made One Movie in His Career, This is the Trailer for It

24 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

I was having a conversation with my wife the other day about who my top three favorite male actors are and Leonardo DiCaprio made the list.  Just for sharing sake the other two are Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman.  I also happen to think that Brad Pitt is extremely underrated as an actor and I used to think Ed Norton was the man.  And I cannot forget about guys like Christian Bale, Tom Hanks, and Robert De Niro.  But let’s go back to DiCaprio.  I don’t think people realize just how great an actor he is and appreciate how long

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says He'll Be Back In Next Terminator Film

22 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Though the sequels that were intended to follow 2015's Terminator Genisys were canceled after that film's lackluster performance and tepid reception, the Terminator franchise is far from dead. It was already announced that James Cameron, creator of the property, was returning to produce and shepherd a new approach to the classic series of films, with Deadpool's Tim Miller set to direct. Whatever direction the new film takes, we now know of another important returning player.

Screen Daily sat down with Arnold Schwarzenegger at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, where the actor confirmed that he will, indeed, be back... again:

“It is back. It is moving forward. [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise. I will be in the movie.”

So, how do we continue from here? The franchise has already had two "reboots" of sorts, 2009's Terminator Salvation and the aforementioned Genisys. The former was meant »

With his Oscar-winning 2015 hit The Big Short—which took the prize for Best Adapted Screenplay, along with four other nominations—director and co-writer Adam McKay turned the 2008 financial crash into an entertaining and revelatory comedy-drama, demonstrating a penchant for political hot-button material, and making it its own genre as he sets up his next projects.

Cannes: Download THR's Day 3 Daily

The Hollywood Reporter has released its third Cannes Film Festival daily issue, which includes a look at the state of China-Hollywood co-productions, a backing announcement of Tom Cruise's American Made and exclusive casting news in the Indian Rambo remake.

Despite many attempts, there are virtually no U.S.-China co-productions that have succeeded financially in both territories: Christian Bale's The Flowers of War, Kevin Spacey's Inseparable and, most recently, Matt Damon's The Great Wall. THR takes a look at how savvy producers are now finding ways to get past cultural and regulatory hurdles to gain access to the Middle Kingdom and still make a »

After 'The Great Wall,' Can China-Hollywood Co-Productions Be Saved?

18 May 2017 9:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On paper, linking the world’s two top box-office territories — North America and China — via a co-production designed to play in both seems a no-brainer.

But despite many attempts, big and small, and seemingly endless industry panel discussions dedicated to the topic, there are virtually no U.S.-China co-productions that have succeeded financially in both territories.

The landscape is littered with examples of promising projects that faltered or failed. Remember The Flowers of War? Zhang Yimou’s World War II period epic starring Christian Bale and Chinese star Ni Ni was a hit at home, grossing $95 million in China but »

Previous Oscar winners will litter the race again this year

15 May 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Some years, it feels like all of the Academy Award contenders are fresh faces. The hopefuls for Oscar nominations and wins are on the scene for the first time and vying to join the club. Other times, it’s a mix between old and new. Still other times, it seems like a disproportionately large amount of would be nominees and prospective winners have been there before. 2017 seems like it’s going to be one of those years. We don’t fully know how it’s going to shape up just yet, but there’s a whole host of golden statue owners who might end up thinking about making room on their mantle for more this time around. If nothing else, this is just a primer to keep in mind when the fall and winter months come calling. Here is the list of all former winners who have something in contention this year. »

The Dark Knight Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

14 May 2017 6:44 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”

In 2008, Christopher Nolan did something no other Batman film director could ever do – he made a darker film than Tim Burton. Burton’s over-the-top, circus-like direction in his two Batman films, while albeit dark, isn’t anywhere near as dark and gritty as The Dark Knight.

Let’s start with the Joker first off. Heath Ledger outclassed Nicholson in this role (see Chinatown at the Tivoli Wednesday night for quintessential Jack). This isn’t the prim and proper Joker that Nicholson displayed – this Joker is a force of nature that plays by absolutely no rules except his own twisted moral code. He cares more about chaos and mayhem more than he would ever care about money or fame. He lives off the fear of the populace. Nicholson’s obsession with the Batman had more »

12 May 2017 12:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Woody Harrelson has given some brand new information about his role as Beckett in the upcoming Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. Official news has been hard to come by lately as the cast and crew have been sworn to secrecy.

Harrelson, who is at Pinewood Studios in London filming Han Solo, shared some interesting information regarding his character in the hotly anticipated prequel.

While speaking to The Standard, Woody Harrelson echoed his past feelings about the chance to be in a Star Wars movie. He expresses his excitement as such.

"I am totally psyched to be making a Star Wars film. But the secrecy is on another level."

Harrelson has already shared this bit of information and we're sure that you'd be crazy not to be excited »

Live By Night: The Films Of Zoe Saldana

12 May 2017 5:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Having starred in a wide range of both high-profile blockbusters and more character driven dramas, it’s safe to say that Zoe Saldana is one of the most sought after actresses working in the industry today. Last year saw her team with Oscar-winner Ben Affleck for Live By Night, an action packed crime thriller, set in the Roaring 20s amidst an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. To mark the release of the film out on Digital Download now and available on Blu-ray™ and DVD from May 22, we’ve rounded up her six most essential performances.

Avatar (2009)

Avatar is widely recognised as a visual extravaganza and a box office behemoth, having taken the spot of highest grossest film of all time from James Cameron’s previous film Titanic. However, its stunning effects and epic story would not have landed with audiences nearly as much without compelling performances at the centre, and »
