10 Great Film Directors and Their Very Specific Obsessions

4 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There are some directors whose work you can identify on the spot because of their films' style, look, music, or the actors involved. (Think Wes Anderson or Tim Burton.) And then there are some who can be I.D.d by recurring motifs that pop up again and again in their work. Alfred Hitchcock had a weird thing for blondes, yet compared to some of these other filmmakers' recurring obsessions, Hitch seems downright clean-cut. Let's take a look at some of our favorite directors and their … well, interesting proclivities.Christopher Nolan:Dead wives (Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception)Nolan is beloved by his fan base for the tightly calculated precision of his screenwriting and shooting styles. In that cool detachment, he may have been unaware of an increasingly disturbing trope that shows up time and again in his films: dead wives. The entire plot of Memento is driven »

Fans turn Katniss into Batniss

6 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

One of the recent posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 made Katniss look a little bit like Batman, what with her sleek, black armor. Well, Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks thought so too, and inspired the fansite QuarterQuell.org to take the comparison to the next level. The result? A series of posters for The Dark Katniss Rises, which find Katniss and Hunger Games imagery embedded in posters for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films. The results? Well, I’d watch this movie.

After @ElizabethBanks’ tweet, we couldn’t really resist…what do you think? @ninajacobson #batniss #Mockingjay pic. »

What Does The Ending Of Memento Really Mean

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

Summit Entertainment

Before he resurrected Batman and made us forever uncertain if we were actually dreaming, Christopher Nolan made Memento. A twisting tale of revenge told in reverse, the film was the first suggestion to many that Nolan was something really special (it was only his second feature film).

Widely regarded as one of the director’s best films (and also of the 21st Century as a whole), Memento has betrayed its indie origins and become a widely regarded masterpiece. It was incredibly strong at box office thanks to glowing word-of-mouth, but it’s on DVD where the film really exploded, becoming a must see for a whole generation of movie goers.

But what’s actually going on? Memento is intricately presented in a manner that require multiple rewatches to just pin down what’s going on, while Nolan himself has thrown irritatingly conflicting viewpoints out there that make unravelling the story incredibly tricky. »

Ben McKenzie previews the 'swift and brutal' world of 'Gotham'

9 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In today’s world of comic-book remakes, it’s rare that an actor gets to portray multiple characters within any given universe. It’s even more rare that an actor gets to take part in a story that hasn’t been told before. But Ben McKenzie has done both.

In 2011, McKenzie got the chance to voice an animated Bruce Wayne in Batman: Year One, and three years later, he’s playing a young James Gordon in Fox’s upcoming series, Gotham. And despite the fact that Gotham is a prequel and therefore telling a new story, McKenzie is very aware »

Euro-Pudding and Look Books: Takeaways from Day One at Ifp’s Filmmaker Conference

10 hours ago | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

After sitting through the majority of the New Narratives presentations on day one of the Filmmaker Conference at Ifp Film Week, my brain is almost too awash with content to compile anything but a listicle. From conversations with cinematographers like Reed Morano and producers like Mynette Louie to an Obvious Child case study and Kevin B. Lee’s mini-keynote, here is a handful of the major takeaways I gleaned from yesterday’s Conference. 1. For co-productions, don’t assume hiring local crew is the cheapest option. Arriving to the Icelandic set of Land Ho!, producers Mynette Louie and Sara Murphy realized they were sharing ground with a slightly larger production: Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

Watch: Tom Hardy Gets His Beard On In New Trailer For 'Peaky Blinders' Season 2

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

One of our Most Anticipated TV Shows For The Rest Of 2014, "Peaky Blinders" will be notable for those new to the series for bringing together Christopher Nolan's Scarecrow and Bane, aka Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy. It's also notable for being a slightly under-the-radar show, at least stateside, that boasts a similar "Boardwalk Empire"-style vibe about the rise of the titular gang as they and amass power and avoid the long arm of the law. And the new trailer for season two might be enough to have you binge on season one. Yes, Hardy has taken a role in the second season and gone all beardy with it, and while the teaser shamelessly borrows the music used in all the promos for "True Detective," hey, whatever works, right? As for plot details, they seem to be hard to come by at this point, but just know that Steven Knight ("Locke, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

23 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

Six memorable, unusual uses of 'The Star-Spangled Banner'

13 September 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

This coming week brings the 200th birthday of The Star-Spangled Banner. It is, in addition to being notoriously hard to sing, the National Anthem of the United States of America. While the song is used for many different occasions—baseball games and elections and fireworks and War of 1812-themed frat parties—most of the time what happens during its performances is pretty consistent. Those who are sitting stand, those who wear hats remove them, and everyone sort of uncomfortably half sings along while looking for the nearest American flag. It’s that universal ritual that makes unusual uses of »

London in disguise: 7 times the capital doubled for another location

13 September 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

London's incredibly varied architecture - encompassing Shakespearean and Victorian-era buildings, secret underground tunnels and modern skyscrapers - has seen the city double for everything from 19th century Paris in Les Misérables to outer space in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Digital Spy takes a tour of the capital to find out more…

1. Millennium Bridge, Thames Embankment

We're used to seeing tourists snapping photos and commuters walking briskly across this distinctive bridge, but on August 12 last year, onlookers stopped and gasped as a group of exotically-attired aliens ran across the suspension bridge. This was no prank or stag do, but rather a scene from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which can currently be seen taking the international box office by storm. Incredibly, the bridge was doubling for outer space, albeit with a CGI generated backdrop to hide St Paul's Cathedral and the Tate Modern.

2. The Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich

All the Oscar Buzz (Reese! Eddie! Jen?) from Toronto

I survived the Toronto International Film Festival! Official tally: 15 movies watched, a dozen photo shoots pulled off, 7,800 hors d'oeuvres consumed in the company of famous people. (Oh, and about a gallon of Runts candies, scored from the glamorous Hollywood Foreign Press Association & In Style party's glorious all-you-can scoop candy station and scarfed under cover of darkness at screenings.) But we risk exhaustion and malnutrition for a reason: Good movies. Some of them great. And after a promising first half, the second half of the festival delivered big-time, adding powerhouse performances and major A-list Oscar buzz to the mix. Here's some »

Video: Jessica Chastain Briefly Discusses Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

12 September 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

THR caught up with Chastain at the Toronto International Film Festival, and asked her about her role in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Although her character is rumoured to be the grown up daughter of Matthew McConaughey's space-fairing lead, since that still hasn't been confirmed she plays coy with specifics -- simply stating that although she's "not a huge part" of the film, she does have a "great role". The adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. Directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), a script based on the combination of an original idea by Nolan and an existing script by Jonathan Nolan. The cast includes: Matthew McConaughey (“Magic Mike”), Anne Hathaway (“Les Miserables”), Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Bill Irwin »

Updated 2015 Oscar Predictions: Best Picture is Still Very Much Up for Grabs

12 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last year it was relatively easy to predict a Best Picture front-runner following the Telluride, Venice and Toronto film festivals, the 12 Years a Slave vs. Gravity narrative was pretty much set in stone, which ultimate made for a rather dull awards season. This year there is no such front-runner. In fact, the film that sits atop my Best Picture predictions is the same film I predicted way back in March and I see no reason to change now. Actually, it seems like a more obvious prediction now than it did then. I know some critics and prognosticators will try and suggest Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman (Fox Searchlight) is the out-of-the-gates one to beat of those that have been seen, but that seems like a movie more likely to find recognition in acting and craft categories rather than the big prize. Of course, I'm speaking with a limited perspective based only »

12 of Jessica Chastain’s Movie Roles, Ranked

12 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jessica Chastain might be the hardest-working woman in showbiz. She’s in a new movie — The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them — out this week, and she also just premiered Miss Julie at the Toronto Film Festival. She will be in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar in just a couple of months. Oh, and J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year in December. It’s strange to think that just three years ago, almost none of us knew who the heck Jessica Chastain was, and now she’s become a permanent fixture of the movie landscape, seeming to star (and give great performances) in films left and right.Of course, the actress herself would be the first to tell you that some of this is an illusion: Because she’s acted for people like Terrence Malick and Christopher Nolan, who like to take their time releasing movies, she often winds up having films come out long, »

First Look: Matthew McConaughey Fights to Survive in Gus Van Sant's 'Sea of Trees'

12 September 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

An intense look at Matthew McConaughey's new Gus Van Sant film.

The eerie first image from Gus Van Sant's highly anticipated Sea of Trees has just been released, featuring a bloody Matthew McConaughey.

In the film, McConaughey plays Arthur Brennan, who treks into Aokigahara -- known as "The Sea of Trees" -- a mysterious dense forest at the base of Japan's Mount Fuji where people go to contemplate life and death. Thinking he’s found the perfect place to die, he encounters Takumi Nakamura (Ken Watanabe), a Japanese man who has also lost his way. The two men begin a journey of reflection and survival, which affirms Arthur's will to live and reconnects him to his love with his wife Joan (Naomi Watts).

McConaughey has previously talked about the intensity of the new film, telling Entertainment Weekly, "I say another title for this film is 'You've got to go through annihilation to get to salvation »

Set Video From Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Showcases Batmobile In Motion

12 September 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Not satisfied with those images from earlier in the week that showcased Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’s Batmobile on set in the streets of Detroit? Well, you’re in luck. For a brief clip has weaved its way online that captures the vehicle in motion during a night shoot.

The video, which comes by way of Instagram user ‘brasherj’, offers up a look at Bruce Wayne’s trusty four-wheeled companion from afar as it speeds around a corner. Also, the clip captures the roar of the engine itself, which still sounds as intimidating as you’d expect even though this is raw footage.

As we already knew, the Batmobile in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to be a far cry from Christopher Nolan’s tank-like tumbler; in fact, Zack Synder’s incarnation of the fan favourite is much more classical than its predecessor, opting for a sleek, »
