10 Surprising Things Sixties Batman Shares With The Dark Knight

2 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Do you know what Christopher Nolan’s first exposure to Batman was? It wasn’t Frank Miller’s grim ‘n’ gritty comic books The Dark Knight Returns or Year One, the latter of which was drawn on heavily by the director. It wasn’t Grant Morrison and Dave McKean’s Arkham Asylum, the first truly deep psychological analysis of the character and his enemies. Not the gold standard Batman: The Animated Series.

“I think like a lot of people my age, my first memories of Batman were from the television series with Adam West,” he says. Yes, the sixties Batman, with all of its high camp, go-go dancing, and sound effects popping up on screen. So pretty much the polar opposite of Nolan’s grounded, realistic take on the character in his Dark Knight trilogy. Right.

Well, don’t be so sure. “Still, I think that for something »

Review: Michael Bay-Produced 'Project Almanac' A Worthy Entry In The Time Travel Movie Canon

11 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our review from Comic-Con 2014. Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey's appearance in Hall H wasn't the only surprise aspect of Paramount's lengthy San Diego Comic-Con panel yesterday. It was also announced, after a brief clip was shown, that "Project Almanac," the Michael Bay-produced found footage time travel movie, would also screen for select attendees. We were able to attend the screening and, while it doesn't exactly blaze a new trail, the movie is smart and knowingly acknowledges both its place in the time travel subgenre and its formal limitations as a found footage movie. That self-awareness makes it fun and silly and, yes, kind of stupid, but in ways that are mostly enjoyable and forgivable. David Raskin (Jonny Weston) is a high school senior and a scientific genius. When the movie begins, we're watching the application video that David is submitting to MIT. He »

Matthew McConaughey is attached to star in an adaptation of Christopher McDougall’s best-selling book “Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

McDougall’s book follows the author as he digs into how the Tarahumara Indians, who live in Mexico’s Copper Canyons, have trained themselves to run for hundreds of miles without rest or injury. The story culminates in a race that pits the tribe against some of America’s top ultra-runners.

Frederique Bredin – ‘Revision of the tax rebate schemes will reinforce France’s position as a leading film production hub’

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fifty-seven-year old Frederique Bredin has been president of French cinema agency the Cnc since 2013. Her previous posts include director general of Lagardere Active, editor of newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche, minister for youth and sports from 1991-93, and national secretary for the Socialist Party, responsible for culture and communication between 1995 and 2000. The Cnc is responsible for overseeing French film support policy, including the design of the Trip tax rebate program for international productions, which was upwardly revised in December 2014. In this interview she discusses with Variety her key objectives for the near future.

By strengthening the Trip international tax rebate program, which is now a strong and competitive tax incentive, especially vis-à-vis the U.K., France intends to attract high-budget U.S. blockbusters. How do you view the functioning of Trip in 2014, and the outlook for 2015, in terms of major international productions?

Since its creation in 2009, the Trip international tax »

Michael Keaton says he was lucky to be a part of Batmania

15 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — Michael Keaton has been asked about a sequel to "Beetlejuice" enough times to surely be sick of it by now, because the thing has moved at such a glacial pace there just isn't much to be said. But his work in the original film came at a time when his career was really taking off, and playing in the expressionistic world of Tim Burton in both that film and the first two "Batman" movies was a wholly new and exciting experience for him. In one, he helped build a character from the ground up, while in the other, he found himself at the center of a raging pop culture tempest. Both roles are iconic in their own ways, and looking back, Keaton can — as ever — find nothing but gratitude for getting to be a part of it. "Batman" in particular was a personal landmark, a movie that grabbed »

Repressionistic Cinema

17 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Let's look at what's trending. 'Serious' cinema reigns; we need realism, we need our James Bond gritty. The playfulness of Errol Flynn's multi-color Robin Hood has been traded out for the brawny blood spilling Russell Crowe. Exit color, enter the blue hued sordid filter of late. Now notice this is very new. Pierce Brosnan surfed a Tsunami in Die Another Day, and that was just recently in 2002. Now Daniel Craig's Bond is struggling with old age, bad cardio, and a rusty shot? We've come a long ways from the 007 who rescued bikini laden damsels while fending off eye patched bad guys. 

The old Burton Batman went from surrealist nightmare, to Christopher Nolan crime thriller. Superman began a lighthearted ass-kicker, and became an isolated brood who gradually unclosets his powers (the red of his cape can barely manage the aforementioned depressing blue palette, it looks purple). So what's that say of an audience exactly? »

Interstellar / Fantastic Four Trailer Mashup Works Surprisingly Well

27 January 2015 4:05 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

After months of silence, the first trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four debuted this morning. You've probably seen it by now, but in case you haven't, watch it here. The director and writer/producer Simon Kinberg have provided a commentary for the trailer as well as some details on their influences for the film in a new interview, so be sure to check those out if you're interested.

A lot of people have pointed out the similarities between this teaser and a Christopher Nolan movie, citing the "realistic" tone, the contemplative score, and even a shot of a plane that looks very much like a similar shot from The Dark Knight Rises. But since Fantastic Four deals with inter-dimensional travel and has a considerable amount of sci-fi in it, perhaps the most apt comparison is to Nolan's most recent film, Interstellar.

The tenuous nature of being an early Academy Award frontrunner

27 January 2015 1:06 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s hardly a brand new sentiment to express, but you really can never script Oscar season. No matter how you think the awards race is going to go, at least to some degree it always turns out different. This year is obviously no exception, so today I wanted to take a look at how the various frontrunner have changed throughout the season. In some cases, we’ve seen top tier contenders hold strong all year, but the frontrunners have shifted for sure. In a few instances, the early favorites didn’t wind up nominated at all. That’s just how the season goes. We’re deep into phase two now, so it’s a perfect time to look back at what things were like at the start of 2014. Obviously, you never truly know what’s going to happen during an Oscar race, especially when you start out in the »

Jordan's Top Ten Movies of 2014

27 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Spoiler alert, but Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was, in fact, not my favorite film of the year. I figured I should just get that out of the way at the start for those of you who feared I might have the same #1 film as Brad and Mike, both of whom listed Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's latest as their favorite film from 2014. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Birdman, but in a surprise to even myself, it didn't make my list, which I think you can pretty much chalk up to the surprisingly good year 2014 wound up being. I was certainly among the scoffers last fall about it being a bit of down year, and just a month or so ago I was of the opinion 2014 offered a lot of films to like, but very few to love. After going through and finalizing my list, I'd like to retract that statement. »

Interstellar DVD and Blu-ray release date

27 January 2015 6:10 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Christopher Nolan's Interstellar will be arriving on disc at the end of March. Plus, first details of extra features too...

Whilst it's a film that's clearly best absorbed on the big screen, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar has plenty to dig into when it gets its home formats release too. And now we know when to expect the disc.

We're hearing from a couple of sources - not least our local branch of HMV - that Interstellar is going to arrive on DVD and Blu-ray from March 30th 2015. That's the UK date that we know of, anyway. The Us release is likely, as is the norm, to fall on a Tuesday, so either March 24th or March 31st are candidates there (it's looking like the latter, according to Interstellar-Movie).

Details of extra features? Well, we're hearing that the Blu-ray will have quite a selection, going behind the scenes and looking at making the film. »

'The Fantastic Four' Trailer: Be Ready for What's Coming (Video)

27 January 2015 1:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The long-awaited first teaser trailer for the reboot of "The Fantastic Four" is here, and it suggests a darker tone for the Marvel property than the previous film incarnations.

The teaser was very much in the style of Christopher Nolan -- highly reminiscent of teasers for "Interstellar" -- with an ominous voice warning, "Human beings have an immeasurable desire to discover ... [But] with every new discovery there is risk," as images flash of Reed Richards (Miles Teller) in a high-tech lab, Sue Storm (Kate Mara) working in front of a bank of computer terminals, and some kind of ship preparing to take off.

Along with Teller and Mara, there are brief glimpses of Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell displaying the superpowers they gain after some kind of experiment/space flight seems to go wrong.

From the teaser, it looks like Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" will sit seamlessly beside other »

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar Preps Landing Gear For Blu-Ray Release On March 31

26 January 2015 9:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has confirmed that Interstellar will enter near-Earth orbit on March 31, when Christopher Nolan’s cerebral sci-fi will become available on Blu-Ray.

Charting the bold and ambitious endeavours of Matthew McConaughey and Co., Nolan’s latest takes place in the not-so-distant and terrifyingly believable future where humanity is clutching at straws to resolve the planet’s crippling food crisis. With unforgiving dust storms forcing the remnants of society back to their agrarian roots, a small band of survivors pull together to go boldly where no man has gone before, entering a wormhole in the hope of finding a new habitable planet to call their own. Joining McConaughey for the mind-bending journey are Anne Hathaway, Wes Bentley and two wise-cracking AI robots known as Tars and Case.

When it released last year, many moviegoers were chomping at the bit to see Interstellar in all of its grandeur, hunting down the »

Anne Hathaway on the Pressure of Following Up Her Oscar Win and What She Learned By Producing 'Song One'

23 January 2015 12:22 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Time Warner Cable Movies On Demand in support of Indie Film Month. Today's pick, "Song One," is available now On Demand. This interview originally ran during last year's Sundance Film Festival.] It's hard to believe, but it's been over a year since Anne Hathaway last graced the screen in "Les Misérables," the film that went on to win the actress her first Oscar. Since singing her way to glory as Fantine, Hathaway has maintained a low public profile, working on Christopher Nolan's hugely anticipated fall blockbuster "Interstellar" and diving into her first job as a producer on the low budget indie "Song One," in which she also stars. The film (written and directed by newcomer Kate Barker-Froyland) marks the first of Hathaway's to screen at the Sundance Film Festival. In the drama, Hathaway stars as Franny, an anthropologist who returns home to New York when an accident »

Jessica Chastain Would "Absolutely Love" To Be In A Star Wars Movie

23 January 2015 8:27 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Jessica Chastain has been on many a fan's wishlist for a variety of different roles for quite a long time, but, unless you count Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, she's yet to make the leap into a big tentpole/Cbm type property -- no matter how much she may want to. Chastain has previously expressed her desire to play a superhero after turning down a couple of comic book movie roles that she didn't think were up to much, but it turns out she's just as interested in Star Wars. Digital Spy asked her about it since her friend and A Most Violent Year co-star Oscar Isaac will be seen piloting an X-Wing in The Force Awakens, and she responded very positively to the idea. So Disney/Lucasfilm, I think I speak for everyone when I say: get this woman in a future Star Wars film. The relevant chat comes in »
