All 34 titles allocated to Hollywood and other foreign movies under China's revenue-share quota system have now been allocated for 2014, and they include a Chinese release for Penguins of Madagascar weeks before it opens globally. Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, which just managed to gain inclusion in this year's list – there had been fears the Matthew McConaughey movie would not make the cut this year and have to wait until next year's quota list. Also among the movies making up the last six places were Ice Age: The Meltdown, which is currently showing in Chinese cinemas and has taken

Beverly Hills — It was time for a victory lap for last year's Best Actor Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as the "Interstellar" star was honored by the American Cinematheque at the Beverly Hilton's famed International Ballroom Tuesday night. A roll call of the star's leading ladies was on hand to take part in the tribute, which closed with "Interstellar" director Christopher Nolan doing the honors of presenting the hardware. Kate Hudson ("How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," "Fool's Gold"), Anne Hathaway ("Interstellar"), Jennifer Garner ("Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," "Dallas Buyers Club") and Reese Witherspoon ("Mud") all took the stage at various moments throughout the evening to tell anecdotes and present clip packages from McConaughey's early years, his romantic comedy stretch, actioners, legal dramas and, of course, the "McConaissance" of late, as it's been dubbed. When Nolan had his turn, however, he bristled a bit at that moniker. "I'm not a believer in the McConaissance, »

Matthew McConaughey cleared some misconceptions and shared a few lessons he’s learned in 22 years in Hollywood at the American Cinematheque gala Tuesday at the Beverly Hilton.
“I did not get offered the ‘Titanic’ role,” said the night’s honoree, clearing that out of the way before getting to some of his lessons.
“No. 1: The same script with $10 million attached is funnier than the same script with $1 million attached to it,” he said.
Secondly, “you have to prepare, that structure helps you play,” he added relating the story of how early in his career, carried away with the thought of being a “natural actor” he didn’t read the script till he got on set. “Then I found out it was a two-page monologue in Spanish.”
The third lesson he wanted to share was about bringing his kids on set. Early on in his career he’d thought that was a bad idea. »

Matthew McConaughey had the support of his family and friends on Tuesday when he received the American Cinematheque Award at the 28th Annual Gala in La. While walking the red carpet, Matthew posed for pictures with his parents, his wife Camila Alves, and two of his adorable children, Levi and Vida, who were all dressed up for the event. This award marks yet another exciting milestone in Matthew's big year, as he took home several awards, including an Oscar, for his role in Dallas Buyers Club earlier this year. Also on hand for the night's festivities were some of Matthew's famous costars, including A-listers like Jennifer Garner, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, and Interstellar's Anne Hathaway. Christopher Nolan presented Matthew with the award, while Jimmy Kimmel hosted the event. See all the best pictures from Matthew's exciting night, then check out the trailer for Interstellar, his upcoming film, which hits theaters on Nov. »
A slew of actresses and Interstellar director Christopher Nolan took to the stage at the American Cinematheque's annual gala Tuesday night to paint a picture of a man as large in life as the characters he plays onscreen. At the star-studded event at the Beverly Hilton, there were plenty of impressions of Matthew McConaughey's signature Texas drawl, references to the "McConaissance" and utterances of his signature "Alright, alright, alright" and "Just keep livin'" catchphrases. And in between the funny on and off-set stories were powerful words of praise for the Oscar winner and the career he's built over

The screenings of Chris Nolan's "Interstellar" have landed. I will see it later this week. But Paramount is keeping press folks under embargo until October 27th--they're allowed to do that if they invite you to an advance screening. (When studios try to control film festival screenings it makes me crazy.) But one way to spread positive buzz ahead of the press is to let influencers in Hollywood take to Twitter. They have no embargo. Thus San Francisco Film Society exec director Noah Cowan and filmmakers Brad Bird and Edgar Wright are already spreading the advance word that "Interstellar" is amazing, among others. Sunday night Paramount chief Brad Grey hosted a starry New York opinionmakers screening. And Tuesday night in at the Beverly Hilton, Matthew McConaughey is the recipient of the American Cinematheque Ball's annual tribute. Nolan and Anne Hathaway will be on hand as part of a major Paramount push for--"Interstellar. »

In roughly two weeks time, there’s gonna be one thing causing a ruckus around the water cooler and that’s Christopher Nolan’s eagerly-awaited Interstellar. The sci-fi spectacular has made a ton of waves purely based on its trailers, stills and posters, each a beautiful teaser for an epic journey that looks set to completely redefine cinema. Think I’m being hyperbolic? This opinion is becoming one held by practically every person who’s been lucky enough to catch an advanced screening.
The weeks preceding the release of such a major picture are often a bit problematic for cinephiles. This is largely because the internet soon becomes awash with spoilers and such, that tend to ruin films before everyone has the chance to see them on the big screen. However, it seems the folks who have seen it loved it so much that they’ve not wanted to tarnish »

The British Film Institute is set to re-release Stanley Kubrick's seminal film 2001: A Space Odyssey into theaters this November, so it's only natural that we'd get a brand-new trailer 46 years after it was released. BFI and Warner Bros. commissioned a new trailer celebrating the film's legacy—and promoting its appearance in theaters in the U.K.—with a trailer for Kubrick's science fiction epic. The trailer includes some of the film's most iconic imagery, as well as the dulcet tones of Hal the computer and the familiar sounds of "Also sprach Zarathustra." 2001 will make its reappearance in movie theaters across the U. »

Since the beginning of the year, we’ve seen Oscar contenders premiere at Sundance, Cannes, Berlin, Telluride, Toronto and New York, but as we approach the end of October, some films have yet to make their debut. Here are ten films that have been garnering Oscar buzz that will be debuting through December (in alphabetical order):
A Most Violent Year; Nov. 6
Jc Chandor ‘s third feature film will be opening AFI Fest. It reunites two Juilliard alumni, Oscar Isaac and two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain, as a couple living and working in New York City during one of its most violent years. This will be the main Oscar focus of upstart, indie distributor A24.
American Sniper; Dec. 25

It’s time to start booking your tickets and weighing up whether or not to watch it in all its IMAX glory – Interstellar is nearly upon us.
As you probably know by now, the plot concerns a group of explorers who travel through a wormhole in space to seek out new habitats. It was originally a Steven Spielberg project until the legendary filmmaker moved his DreamWorks company from Paramount to Disney in 2009 and someone was required to step in.
It’s fair to say Christopher Nolan is, by anyone’s standards, a fairly decent substitute. Nolan is a director at the top of his game and is virtually peerless when it comes to big budget movies with brains; the prospect of his first proper venture into sci-fi is an invigorating one, and the fleeting footage released thus far suggests that Interstellar will be an epic experience. »

Every Christopher Nolan film nowadays comes with high expectations, but the anticipation for Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar is, shall we say, outta this world (I’m so sorry). Interest is at a fever pitch for the film, which promises astonishing visuals, scientifically grounded inter-dimensional travel, and strong performances from Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, etc. As with all Christopher Nolan films, though, Interstellar has been shrouded in secrecy, so refreshingly we still know very little about the kind of movie we’ll be seeing. However, the film is now fully complete and private screenings have started to take place. While there’s no doubt some kind of embargo placed on Interstellar reactions for the time being (critics see it very soon), two highly talented and trusted filmmakers have weighed in with their thoughts: Brad Bird and Edgar Wright. See what they had to say about the film after the jump. »

Before the McConaissance, there were movies like "The Wedding Planner," "Failure to Launch," "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," "Fool's Gold," and "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past." These were the projects upon which an often shirtless Matthew McConaughey buttered his bread. But now that he's dancing between prestige indies like Gus Van Sant's forthcoming "The Sea Of Trees" and Christopher Nolan's forthcoming "Interstellar," you might think McConaughey would scoff at those earlier efforts. You would be wrong. In fact, he defends him heartily in a new profile for GQ. "These things aren't easy," he says of rom-coms. "What's hard is to make them look easy. Those kinds of movies are what they are. They get pooh-poohed by critics. They get pooh-poohed by actors themselves. And in a way I get it, but in other ways it's completely unfair. There's a buoyancy you need to make them work. »

You may have seen that we put our feature about Five Films You Should See Before Interstellar – in which Christopher Nolan talks about his inspirations for his new sci-fi – online recently. Top of that list is Stanley Kubrick’s groundbreaking 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the film in conveniently headed back into the best place to see it: cinemas. Here’s the new trailer… Obviously, if you’ve never seen it, this is the ideal opportunity to have your mind rocked and your expectations met, as Kubrick’s thoughtful, trippy and huge film explores humanity’s fascination with the stars, alien intervention in human life, and much, much more. All set to some beautiful music.And yes, it’s a chance to acquaint – or re-acquaint - yourself with the coldly logical computer Hal, one of the most iconic examples of artificial intelligence ever committed to celluloid. 2001 will be on limited »
When Matthew McConaughey began receiving raves for a string of dramatic roles in films like “Mud,” “Killer Joe” and “Dallas Buyers Club,” there were many who praised the actor for turning his back on the romantic comedies that helped make him a star. McConaughey himself was not one of them.
“I love those movies,” he said in an interview with Variety in January, shortly before winning the Academy Award, praising hits like “The Wedding Planner” and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” He even defended the ones that weren’t as well received. “ ‘Failure to Launch’ got panned, but I like it!”
McConaughey is well aware of the spin that others try to put on his career; that he abandoned easy roles and paychecks for darker parts. “The narrative that people keep wanting to get at is the then and now,” he said. “The then and now narrative »

Tuesday episodes seem to have generated something of a theme, which is to say random is the order of the day as Laremy and I steamroll through about 10 minutes of nonsense before getting started and then it's a couple minutes of college football talk before we get into George Lucas saying Hollywood studios lack imagination and we ponder comparisons between the recent news surrounding Ebola with Steven Soderbergh's Contagion. We talk Jason Reitman, Netflix streaming, R vs. PG-13. new DVDs and Blu-rays and plenty more. If you are on Twitter, we have a Twitter account dedicated to the podcast at @bnlpod.

Two weeks from Tuesday, theaters with film projectors start screening Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar. That means a few things. One, you better get your tickets. And two, it’s time to begin managing expectations and avoiding spoilers. Over the past few days, the film has begun screening for general audiences, celebrity audiences and press alike. Attendees are […]

Director: Danny Cannon
Writer: Bruno Heller
Synopsis: Detectives Gordon and Bullock investigate a child trafficking ring preying on Gotham’s street kids, including Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova). Meanwhile, Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) resurfaces in the countryside and begins to make his way back to Gotham.
So here we are, two weeks in to what was arguably the most anticipated television event of 2014. It seems strange to think that this time two years ago we were still overthinking and overanalysing the highly publicised ending to Christopher Nolan’s acclaimed Dark Knight trilogy. Now, with that awfully big bat-shadow looming over Gotham before it even began, is the show performing as expected on the second episode of its maiden season? (tantalisingly titled ‘Selina Kyle »

"This is the first film I have made where the actual experience of the film is paramount to the audience," director Christopher Nolan recently told Entertainment Weekly when discussing his new film Interstellar. "You would think that's the case with Batman movies, but it's not. They're more dependent on the reaction of characters on screen. Interstellar is different. It harkens back to the direct experience films of 2001, where you're not just experiencing it through the characters, you are lost in it." Well, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is preparing to return to U.K. theaters on November 28, two weeks after Interstellar hits theaters giving audiences time to get acquainted and prepared for a film Nolan is quoted as calling "pure cinema" in this new re-release trailer.
