Christopher Nolan‘s next movie, the World War II action thriller Dunkirk, will already serve as a reunion for several of the filmmakers previous collaborators. Tom Hardy is slated to star in the film and Hans Zimmer will compose the score. And now one more name who has worked with Nolan preivously has come on board […]

Yesterday, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder spoke about why he prefers the DC Universe to the Marvel Cinematic Universe during an appearance on the Hall of Justice podcast. The filmmaker also had plenty more to say during his appearance, offering new details about both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, which he starts filming this spring. First, the director essentially confirmed rumors that the rest of the Justice League, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) will be featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, although he admitted that they have small roles.
"I really feel like this movie... I mean as far as the other Justice League characters go, it's very small roles. It's a whisper that they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her pretty well. But the movie is about Batman and Superman. »
Having already recruited German composer and good-luck charm Hans Zimmer, Christopher Nolan is set to welcome back Swedish cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (Let the Right One In, Spectre) for World War II drama Dunkirk.
First collaborating for Interstellar in 2014, Nolan and Van Hoytema’s working relationship was almost born out of necessity, given that the director’s reliable director of photography Wally Pfister – who has served as Dp on every Nolan film since his debut feature film Following – opted to forego the cerebral sci-fi film in favor of directing fellow genre piece, Transcendence.
But considering that Hoyte van Hoytema had by that stage attracted the attention of the Academy through his work on Her and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Nolan landed on a winner. Seemingly keen to keep the ball rolling, The Film Stage reports that the pair will collaborate once again for Dunkirk, swapping futuristic science fiction and wormholes »

Good news to report, Nolan fans! Nolan's new favorite cinematographer is coming back to work on his next film. Christopher Nolan is reteaming with Swiss cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema for his next film currently titled Dunkirk, about the Allied evacuation from Dunkirk, France during the early part of WWII. This isn't surprising at all and it's exactly what we expected for this production, but this is the first time we've seen confirmation. The news is from a report on the American Society of Cinematographers (Asc) website via The Film Stage announcing that van Hoytema is a now a member of the Asc (he's also part of the Fsf and Nsc in Sweden and The Netherlands). Hoytema last worked with Nolan to shoot Interstellar. An Asc Award nominee for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which also screened in competition at Camerimage, van Hoytema is currently prepping an untitled feature for director Christopher Nolan, »

Way back in November 2014, it was revealed that composer Hans Zimmer is teaming with Junkie Xl (a.k.a. Tom Holkenberg) to work on the score for Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hans Zimmer will craft the theme for Superman (Henry Cavill), like he did in 2013's Man of Steel, with Junkie Xl working on a new Batman (Ben Affleck) theme. Earlier today, Water Tower Music released the Batman theme, entitled "Men Are Still Good (The Batman Suite), which you can listen to below.
Before taking on the job, Hans Zimmer admitted in September 2013 that he was unsure about taking on this job, because he didn't want to create new Batman music after working on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. Junkie Xl, a.k.a. Tom Holkenborg, most recently composed scores for Mad Max: Fury Road, Black Mass and Point Break, along with the upcoming Deadpool. »
Hoyte van Hoytema has certainly been making a name for himself in Hollywood lately. With blockbuster films like "Spectre" and "Interstellar" under his belt, the Swiss-born cinematographer is now poised to continue his foray into big-budget moviemaking by working with Christopher Nolan yet again for "Dunkirk." The news was first reported by The Film Stage. Before "Interstellar," Nolan had exclusively worked with cinematographer Wally Pfister, save for his directorial debut, "Following." The departure of Pfister (who went on to direct the lackluster Johnny Depp film, "Transcendence") led many to speculate as to who the next director of photography would be for the meticulous and demanding Nolan. The British director chose none other than the BAFTA-nominated Hoytema to work the camera for "Interstellar." The cinematography, which found Hoytema using »

When Christopher Nolan went into outer space for "Interstellar," it was without longtime cinematographer Wally Pfister, who had been with the director since "Memento," but turned to a directing career of his own starting with the unfortunate "Transcendence." Nolan's choice to lens his ode to the galactic power of love was Hoyte van Hoytema, who had quite the resumé behind him with "The Fighter," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," and "Her." And it seems Nolan was pleased his work on "Interstellar." Read More: Tom Hardy, Kennegh Branagh, And Mark Rylance To Star In Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk' Hoytema has now joined the American Society Of Cinematographers, and in the announcement, it's revealed that he "is currently prepping an untitled feature for director Christopher Nolan." That would be "Dunkirk" (not the official title, but the one being used for now), Nolan's WWII picture »

Say what you will about Interstellar and its plot, but I found the film to be a visual masterpiece. Between the grounded shots on earth and the ethereal shots in space, the movie was an absolute joy to watch. Those who enjoyed the look of that picture, like myself, will be happy to hear that director Christopher Nolan will once again be working with Hoyte van Hoytema (who was the director of photography on Interstellar) for his next movie, Dunkirk, the American Society of Cinematographers reports.
Dunkirk will be filmed from an original screenplay by Christopher Nolan himself, and will be his first attempt at a war film. Given the filmmakers recent foray into the abstract with movies like Inception and Interstellar, this will be a nice refresh for those looking for a more grounded picture for Nolan.
Dunkirk will be shot on a combination of both IMAX 65mm and 65mm large format film, »

Given that composer Hans Zimmer worked on Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, he chose not to create the theme for Ben Affleck's Batman, instead handing over the reigns to Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie Xl. While the two artist have collaborated to create the entire score for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Holkenborg was responsible for bringing the Batman theme to life. Curious to hear how it...

Paris – Wrapping Saturday, Feb. 6, attendance at the Third Paris Images Trade Show ramped up strongly this year. One example: Paris Images Location Expo recorded a 25% increase in exhibitors and nearly a 50% hike in participants.
Notwithstanding the terrorist attacks in November 2015, film production levels in the Paris region have quickly bounced back and are expected to attain record levels in 2016 as a result of the new 30% rate in force for the domestic and international tax rebate programs.
Major shoots confirmed for 2016 in the Paris area include Indian feature film “Befikre,” which has a 13-week shoot, with 10 weeks in Paris. There will also be a few days of shooting on “Fifty Shades Darker.” Christopher Nolan will lense “Dunkirk” in the North of France in May, and Neil Jordan will shoot the TV series “Rivieira” in the South of France. An undisclosed major U.S. TV series is planning to shoot in the »

As Christopher Nolan prepares for an early summer shoot of his World War II drama Dunkirk, he’s busy filling out his cast and crew. With composer Hans Zimmer returning, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and Tom Hardy are filling out the ensemble and many unknown newcomers are still waiting to be cast. Set to shoot in IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film, many have wondered if longtime collaborator Wally Pfister would return or perhaps he’d reteam with Interstellar‘s Hoyte van Hoytema.
It looks like it will be the latter, as the announcement that Hoytema has deservedly joined the American Society of Cinematographers includes a note that he is “currently prepping an untitled feature for director Christopher Nolan, with whom he first collaborated on Interstellar.” Following his work on Spectre, Her, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Let the Right One In, and more, we look forward to how he pulls »

Citing Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight as inspiration, all signs pointed to Sony gunning for a post-apocalyptic aesthetic for Zorro Reborn. In the time that’s lapsed since we last caught wind of the studio’s masked bandit, it appears the project has been given a total overhaul, with plans now in place for the reboot to be rooted in the near-future.
That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Gravity co-writer Jonás Cuarón will write and direct the remake now formally known as Z. It’s by no means the only property to get the futuristic treatment under Sony, given the company is also whisking Robin Hood and his fellow men in tights into the not-so-distant future for a “revisionist” and “gritty” and “reimagining” and just about every other buzzword that comes to mind.
As for Zorro – sorry, Z – Cuarón is reportedly eyeing a summer start date, »

Read More: Here Are the Winners of the 2016 Slamdance Film Festival The Slamdance Film Festival may take place in parallel to Sundance, but it's not a cultural behemoth like the bigger Park City gathering. But the festival, founded in 1995, which has helped to spur the careers of Christopher Nolan and Lena Dunham, is replete with promising shoestring films and young performers on the cusp of critical recognition. Here are five highlights from this year's recently-concluded lineup. "Fursonas" Director Dominic Rodrigeuz offers an intimate look at the secretive subculture of Fursonas (a portmanteau of "furry" and "persona"), or "Furries," plushy anthropomorphic avatars donned by role-players. Fursona conventions date back to the early eighties, though members (understandably) try to keep the group out of the public eye. As with most of the films of the list, eccentricity of character plays heavily into the film's appeal, though no other film of »

David Bowie. Thin White Duke, Goblin King, Ziggy Stardust, Genius. The world was shocked by his death, so soon after gifting us with his album, Blackstar. Released only days ago on his 69th birthday and intended as a parting gift to us all, David Bowie was wonderful, weird, and surprising until the very end.
While there’s no denying the musical talent Bowie brought to generations through his many albums and character incarnations, the film world has also lost a charismatic actor known for some iconic roles. While Bowie may not have worked steadily as an actor, his roles were carefully chosen and memorable, allowing him to work with some of the most talented directors of the past 40 years.
Whether Bowie is the Goblin King, a beautiful androgynous alien, or the master of the fashion catwalk to you, we look back and celebrate his most iconic performances in film.

The last time I went to the restaurant in the Regency Hotel on Park Avenue was to meet Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth for their film 20,000 Days On Earth and Nick Cave stopped by for a greeting. Atom Egoyan's terrifically paced thriller Remember, written by Benjamin August, starring Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau with Bruno Ganz, Heinz Lieven, Dean Norris and Jürgen Prochnow is structured in the spirit of a cumulative tale. We spoke about the residual idea of The Sound Of Music, North By Northwest and Slavoj Žižek, meeting Son Of Saul director László Nemes in Sarajevo, Christopher Nolan's Memento and Leviticus.

In 2005, Electronic Arts published a video game version of Christopher Nolan’s epic superhero reboot Batman Begins. It got mixed reviews, however due to Batman’s evident popularity and the hype surrounding the release of Nolan’s sequel The Dark Knight, another video game tie-in was warranted and EA and Pandemic Studios began working hard to get the game finished before the movie’s release.
That didn’t happen for various reasons and this video courtesy of DidYouKnowGaming? sheds some light on the specifics behind why the game was cancelled. The video also has some footage and concepts from The Dark Knight game.
Check it out below:

There was supposed to be a videogame of The Dark Knight - and footage from the cancelled Batman release has surfaced.
You might recall that back in 2008, just before the release of Nolan's highly anticipated sequel to Batman Begins (which did get a pretty bad video game adaptation), actor Gary Oldman let slip that he'd signed on to reprise his role as Jim Gordon in the upcoming Dark Knight video game, a secret that Pandemic Studios and Electronic Arts had yet to reveal to the public.
Since then, fans have scrutinised the project and the reasons behind why The Dark Knight video game never saw the light of day (night?). This new video gives us those reasons, »
After almost three long years of waiting, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will finally hit theaters on March 25th. The film has become one of the most highly anticipated cinematic experiences of all time, but the enthusiasm of many seems somewhat dulled by their poor opinion of the movie.s predecessor: Man of Steel. Whether it.s Zack Snyder.s direction, the chaos and destruction of the film.s third act, or even the mere tone of the film, naysayers seem to constantly find new ways to call it a terrible movie. While there.s a degree of truth to of some these accusations, I am of the mindset that Man of Steel is a far better film than its detractors would ever give it credit for. Is it perfect? Of course not; not even Christopher Nolan.s The Dark Knight is a perfect movie. However, Man of Steel »

We just wrapped up our experience at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, but it certainly isn’t the last update from the event.
