Here’s Christian Bale on his Role in American Psycho

Listening to Christian Bale talk about his role in American Psycho allows it to make a lot more sense now than it did while watching it. To be honest, watching the movie was a little uncomfortable at some moments and absurd at others. Yet it was still a provocative movie that made a person think about just how nuts Bateman was. I do very much agree with Bale when he states that Bateman could not possibly exist outside of his known world, meaning his clubs, his work, and his regular haunts. He’s a creature of habit and as such couldn’t

Review: The Assassination of Gianni Versace Is a 'Juicy Saga' That Explores Celebrity Obsession

Review: The Assassination of Gianni Versace Is a 'Juicy Saga' That Explores Celebrity Obsession
On July 15, 1997, one of the 20th century’s most perversely awful convergences of fate occurred in Miami’s South Beach: Standing outside his mansion, superstar designer Gianni Versace was shot to death by Andrew Cunanan, a young man who’d recently achieved his own ghastly celebrity as a serial killer on the lam.

Titled The Assassination of Gianni Versace, it’s a fitting subject for season 2 of Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story. The show’s first season, The People v. O.J. Simpson, elevated rubbernecking to an art. This, too, is a juicy saga, both outrageous and tragic: Cunanan’s murderous,

Matt Smith Playing Charles Manson In New Movie From American Psycho Director

Matt Smith has been careful to choose a variety of different roles since making his name as the eccentric Eleventh Doctor in Doctor Who. He’s played comic relief parts in the likes of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and he’s played royalty in Netflix’s The Crown, but his next role is going to be as far from the child-friendly sci-fi environs of the Tardis as you can get. That’s because word has it that the actor is in talks to play notorious serial killer Charles Manson.

Tracking Board is reporting that Smith is the top choice to play Manson in The Family, set to be helmed by American Psycho‘s Mary Harron. The project has been in the wind for the past two years, with the synopsis for the pic as follows:

Hostiles movie review: white man’s burden

MaryAnn’s quick take… Sure, millions of Native people dead and ancient cultures destroyed, but who has to live with that? All the good soldiers who were just following orders, that’s who. Won’t someone think of the white man? I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

You know what the real white man’s burden is? Living with the guilt of the colonialism, oppression, and genocide you are party to. I mean, look at North America. Sure, millions of Native people dead and ancient cultures destroyed, but who has to live with that? All the good soldiers who were just following orders, that’s who. No one talks about that, do they? Won’t someone think of the white man?

Some roles you just can’t shake.

For actor Adam Beach, one of those roles is Native warrior Black Hawk in director Scott Cooper’s (Out of the Furnace) Western Hostiles, starring Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike and Wes Studi.

“I’m the son of Wes Studi’s character, Chief Yellow Hawk,” says Beach on the line from his home in Florida. “He’s a well-known Cheyenne chief and he’s dying, and the [U.S.] President has allowed him to die in his homeland. We’re prisoners, and we’re led back home by Christian Bale.”

Bale portrays an Army captain who despises Native Americans and Pike plays a grieving woman who joins the group after a Native raiding party wipes out her family.

The Dark Knight to Return to Theaters for 10th Anniversary

It is hard to believe but it has been 10 years since the Dark Knight was released in July of 2008. Not only was the movie a massive hit at the box office, but it inspired an even darker presentation of who Bruce Wayne really is and how he ultimately became the Bat Man. The Dark Knight was actually the second installment in a trilogy that began with Batman Begins. While there is no shortage of debates surrounding who has played the role of Batman the best, Christian Bale definitely left his mark on the franchise. The movie was also

Timothée Chalamet to donate Woody Allen salary to charity in the wake of abuse allegations

Call Me By Your Name actor Timothée Chalamet has publicly disavowed Woody Allen over long-running allegations of sexual abuse, donating his salary from Allen film A Rainy Day in New York to charity.

In a statement on his Instagram page, Chalamet said he would donate the money to the Time’s Up movement against sexual harassment, The Lgbt Center in New York and sexual violence charity Rainn.

Woody Allen has faced accusations of sexual abuse for years related to his alleged treatment of adopted daughter Dylan Farrow. The filmmaker denies the allegations.

Chalamet’s comments about Allen come in the wake of Greta Gerwig recently saying she will not work with the director again after she was questioned on the topic when her film Lady Bird won a Golden Globe.

Chalamet said: “This year has changed the way I see and feel about many things; it has been a thrilling and,

American Psycho Gets a Kid-Friendly Makeover in Pokemon Mashup Video

Another clever YouTuber has taken some time out of the day to create a new hilarious mashup. This time around, we see a supposed deleted scene from American Psycho reimagined with Pokemon cards. The video is absurd and pretty perfect for Christian Bale's Patrick Bateman character to get a little jealous over his coworker's Pok&#233mon cards. The latest fan-made video comes after some pretty stellar videos involving curious Porgs staring down the wrong end of a Lightsaber and Bruce Lee fighting in Fists of Fury with Lightsabers. This new American Psycho video is still good, even though there are no Lightsabers in it.

YouTuber Demi Adejuyigbe made the new video and claims that it was a deleted scene for the 10th anniversary DVD edition of American Psycho that Lionsgate never put out. Additionally, the scene in question was made to appeal to children of a younger audience to get them into the movie.

Gary Oldman’s Pick For The Next Batman

Gary Oldman Knows Who He Wants As the New Batman

Gary Oldman who stared as Police Commissioner Jim Gordon in the critically acclaimed Dark Knight Trilogy knows exactly whom he’d like to take up the role as the Caped Crusader. He wants to see none other than Joaquin Phoenix play Batman in the DC Extended Universe if Ben Affleck decides to leave the role. Speaking to Too Fab at the 7th Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts International Awards, the actor shared his pick for who should don the cape next.

“This is no disrespect to Ben Affleck. I think it really depends on who is at the wheel that lifts it. I would like to see someone like Joaquin Phoenix play it.”

Gary Oldman’s pick for Batman to be played by Joaquin Phoenix is understandably justified, as Phoenix remains one of the most versatile actors in Hollywood.

The Dark Knight Is Returning To Theaters For Its 10th Anniversary

Update: Showtimes have now been announced and can be found here.

The Caped Crusader, Gotham’s Watchful Protector, the World’s Greatest Detective – Bob Kane and Bill Finger’s masked vigilante is known by many names, but in the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, he was most commonly referred to as The Dark Knight. And what a Dark Knight he was.

Former American Pyscho star Christian Bale was officially unveiled as the seventh incarnation of Batman in 2005, and later headlined three of the best comic book movies ever made: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

Thanks to Nolan’s penchant for realism, his Batman trilogy will always be held in high regard by fans and now, as we approach the 10th anniversary (this July) of the second film in the series, The Dark Knight, we’re learning that it’s going to be swooping back into theaters.

The Dark Knight Returning to Some Theaters For 10th Anniversary

A theater chain is getting an early jump on bringing director Christopher Nolan’s 2008 worldwide blockbuster The Dark Knight back to the big screen to celebrate the film’s 10th anniversary. The Dark Knight, of course, was the middle film in Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, which began with 2005’s Batman Begins and concluded in 2012 with The Dark Knight Rises. Starring Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Batman Begins marked a major turning point in the genre of comic book movies since Nolan took a gritty, real world approach to his films with little room for any fantasy elements.

Christian Bale on ‘Terminator Salvation’: “I’ve Got Enormous Regrets”

Christian Bale is perhaps one of this generation’s best actors. Pretty much every project that attaches Bale immediately adds a certain level of quality. For most of the actor’s career this has remained true, spite for a few misfires here or there. Although it’s been nearly ten years since it’s release in 2009, ‘Terminator: Salvation‘ remains a black mark on what is an illustrious career up to this point. Although it is certainly not a terrible performance by any means, there is a great feeling that Bale is simply miscast in the role of John Connor.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the McG (The Babysitter) directed film for what it is, but perhaps the most memorable thing about ‘Terminator: Salvation‘ is Christian Bale’s epic rant that infamously leaked from the set of the film. But in a recent interview with Happy Sad Confused Podcast
