Cosplayer: Lyndsey Elaine Photographer: Lyon Hart Photography Photographer: Isidro Urena Photographer: Hung Ngo Photographer: Mineralblu Photography It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane. The Dark Knight Rises was directed by Christopher Nolan, »
• Iceland's film locations – in pictures
The sun has yet to rise but the morning light is already illuminating the reasons why Iceland is renowned for its landscape. I'm standing on a helipad in the south-eastern town of Höfn: with its harbour behind me, I can see snow-covered mountains separated by four icy tongues, each part of the enormous Vatnajökull glacier.
A few lights glow yellow-orange in windows but the main colours are sky blue, a sliver of pink around the clouds and the dark-brown mass of mountains yet to reveal their rugged detail. I'm not waiting for a helicopter; this just seemed like a good place to take in the view … sort of. The wind speed is more than 40mph – that's an »

Researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him.
However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can...but if they should.
Their worst fears are realized as Will's thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, »

Here's a new poster for Warner Bros. upcoming mind-bending sci-fi film, Transcendence. The film was directed by Wally Pfister and produced by Christopher Nolan. It stars Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy, Clifton Collins Jr., Kate Mara, and Paul Bettany. This looks like it will be a great movie, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this story plays out. I think there could be a lot of fun twists and turns to it.

We know you've barely recovered from this year's selfie and pizza shenanigans, and it's really too early to start thinking about next year's Academy Awards without risking serious mental health repercussions.
But next awards season is already looking sort of exciting. There are new offerings from Paul Thomas Anderson and Christopher Nolan, a David Fincher adaptation of our favourite book from last year, and the role that may very well net Benedict Cumberbatch his first Oscar nomination. Enticed? Read on...
For eight years, Christopher Nolan alternated Batman chapters with standalone sci-fi projects, and now that his Dark Knight trilogy is wrapped up, he theoretically has carte blanche to explore original stories for the forseeable future. First up is Interstellar, a time travel-based sci-fi which has been described as Nolan's "most ambitious film yet".
Nolan's similarly ambitious Inception earned a Best Picture nomination in 2011, and with a cast led by »

With a little over a month to go now, we are edging ever closer to the exciting directorial debut of Wally Pfister. The talented cinematographer has finally decided to dip his toe in the directing pool after spending years working with none other than Christopher Nolan. Pfister spent years as the figurative apprentice of the master film maker, and as a result collaborated with Nolan on every one of his films to date including the highly acclaimed Dark Knight Trilogy.
Transcendence has attracted an impressive cast consisting of Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy, Paul Bettany and Morgan Freeman among many other star talents. The film will revolve around Depp’s character Dr. Will Caster, a scientist who is fascinated by the possibility of uniting man and machine to create an emotionally self-dependant artificial intelligence. After Caster is shot and diagnosed as terminal, his wife decides to keep him alive »

While Sony’s The Mask of Zorro was a huge success back in 1998 – and is largely considered to be a great action movie to this day – its 2005 followup, The Legend of Zorro, made significantly less money and was pretty much universally panned (perhaps it’s no coincidence that the first film was wall-to-wall stunt-work and the second film depended more heavily on CGI).In the time since, Zorro’s modern-day counterpart, Batman, has enjoyed incredible cinematic success – box office, reviews, you name it – at the hands of Christopher Nolan, and is set to make a return to the big screen with Batman vs. ...

The film lab workers at Deluxe Hollywood may have an Oscar to honor their contributions to the motion picture biz, but as of May 9, they won’t have jobs — at least, not jobs working with film.
That’s the date Deluxe will close its Hollywood film processing lab for good.
The company’s chief marketing and revenue officer, Peter Feigin, told Variety “It’s become not economically feasible for us to continue running (the lab) as a business… at a macro level, this is about less and less studios are using film.
Feigin said 80 to 100 jobs will be affected, though some workers would be relocated within the company, which has some 3000 employees in the U.S. 6000 worldwide, and is growing its workforce, Feigin said. The company has not decided yet what will become of the physical plant in Hollywood where the lab now resides.

I've been wracking my brain ever since reading some quotes from Skyfall and Bond 24 scripter John Logan in the pages of Empire magazine, trying to figure out just what exactly he's talking about. I gave Skyfall a "B" when I reviewed it back in 2012, but I would dial that grade back even further now and when I read Logan saying, "The new movie continues the themes of Skyfall. Some of the characters and themes that we began to introduce in Skyfall will play out," it makes me think even less of the film. What "themes" are carrying overc Global terrorismc Because that's always been a Bond theme so I doubt it could be that. And if it happens to be more James Bond mommy and daddy issues, I'll pass. I also hope this next one takes more of a cue from past Bond films rather than inspiration from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. »

In the past couple of weeks, CineFix has released two new videos in their 8-Bit cinema series. They use mostly 16-bit for their retelling of David Fincher’s Fight Club, but stay nearly all 8-bit for their version of Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Both videos do an incredible job of summing up the events of each movie — especially considering they both come in well under the 3-minute mark. I'd say, though, that the Inception vid has more creative surprises, but the Fight Club retelling fits more elements from the actual movie into it.

The dust has settled. I've had an opportunity to go back and look at the Oscars telecast away from a work setting (let's finally leave poor John Travolta alone). The 86th annual Academy Awards are a memory, and today, Best Picture winner "12 Years a Slave" is available on DVD and Blu-ray (nice timing, folks). It was a wild ride, an unpredictable one, and one that started in the mountains of Colorado. I was talking recently with someone about how the groundwork for phase two of a given awards season — that period of time when ballots are in hand and winners are being decided — is really laid in phase one, if not earlier. By the time you get to phase two, more or less, everyone knows what they're voting for. It almost becomes a formality. Plenty of it has to do with the movies, of course. Studios like Paramount — which does »

Rome – Hot on the heels of his foreign Oscar victory for “The Great Beauty” Paolo Sorrentino is set to start shooting in May on Michael Caine-starrer “In The Future,” an intimate drama about “friendship between two old people,” the Italo helmer has announced.
Sorrentino said that after his ambitious Oscar-winning tour de force he wants to make “a fresh start” with a “small, intimate film,” he told Italian daily La Repubblica. The helmer’s customary irony is likely to permeate his new pic, which Sorrentino penned himself.
As previously announced, “In The Future” is being shepherded by Sorrentino’s regular producers, Nicola Giuliano and Francesca Cima via their Indigo Films shingle, with co-financing from Italian distributor Mediaset/Medusa which is planning a late 2014 release in Italy.

Director Zack Snyder has been in the news a lot lately. With a sequel to his 300 coming out this week, and production ramping up in a big way for the tentatively titled Batman vs Superman, he’s had a chance to field a number of questions. Earlier this week, he responded to Joel Silver’s critique of Watchmen. Now the director has chatted with the La Times‘s Hero Complex about what’s going on with BvS.
On fan criticism of his casting choices:
“There are two ways to think about it. We know the material. Unfortunately, the fans don’t know the material. So, we’re casting according to what’s happening in the script. And we’re hoping that leads to enough originality, enough perspective on what we’re doing that you get something fresh and exciting. I understand the canon. I’m not crazy. I know what »

While The Dark Knight gets most of the love from fanboys and The Dark Knight Rises gets all the hate, I feel like sometimes people forget about Batman Begins. Personally I think it's the best live-action portrayal of the vigilante, but even I had to laugh a few times while watching How It Should Have Ended's latest video for Christopher Nolan's first Batman film. In their new video, Hishe has some fun with a couple of scenes from Batman Begins, including Batman »
