Entertainment Geekly: The Batman Top 100

29 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

So on Monday, I watched the Gotham series premiere with about 8 million of my friends. I started writing a column about the show and what it says (accidentally and/or purposefully) about the role of Batman in pop culture right now. But working on that column got me thinking more generally about Batman: A character who has been around for 75 years, a figure in my cultural consciousness since before my memory begins. The next thing I knew, I was making a list of my favorite Batman things–the movies, the TV shows, the vividly recalled comic book story arcs and standalone issues, »

Matthew McConaughey on Another World in New 'Interstellar' Poster

16 September 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Following yesterday's awesome Poster Posse collection from Blurppy for this fall's release of Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan, an official poster from Paramount Pictures has debuted online. This one is a little more conventional as it merely shows Matthew McConaughey on another world, which we've seen glimpsed in the most recent trailer for the film as well. Some think that the most recent trailer showed too much, but considering it's all out of context and a Nolan movie has never been spoiled by trailers, it shouldn't be anything to worry about. Could we get one more trailer before the release? We'll see. Here's the latest official poster for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar from Empire: Watch the most recent trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar right here! Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. »

First Look: Matthew McConaughey Lost in Gus Van Sant's 'Sea of Trees'

12 September 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Following his Oscar-winning performance in Dallas Buyers Club last year, Matthew McConaughey has the anticipated sci-fi drama Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan coming this fall (which could result in the actor getting yet another Oscar nod). And after that, another awards-worthy performance seems to be following next year with The Sea of Trees from Good Will Hunting director Gus Van Sant. We haven't seen footage yet, but the story follows a man who journeys into the infamous “Suicide Forest” at the foothills of Mount Fuji with the intention of killing himself. Sounds pretty powerful, right? And now we have the first photo from the film which also stars Inception and The Last Samurai actor Ken Watanabe. Here's the first photo from Gus Van Sant's The Sea of Trees from EW: The Sea of Trees is directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Elephant) and written by Chris Sparling (Buried). In the film, »

Toronto: Elvis Mitchell Programs 1st Greenwich Film Fest And Explains Why There Can’t Be Too Many Of Them

11 September 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

I ran into Elvis Mitchell in Toronto, where the former Nyt critic with the hairstyle that always fills me with envy is beginning to figure out what films will play the inaugural Greenwich International Film Festival next June 4-7 in the picturesque Connecticut town. Mitchell, already the curator of Film Independent at Lacma and host of NPR’s The Treatment, just recently took the job as the festival’s Marquee Director. I ask Elvis, since you can throw a dart at a calendar and hit a film festival going on somewhere, what’s the point of yet another?

“It’s a fair question,” he said. “The most interesting film festivals are the ones that create a personal stamp. Like, Toronto is the most democratic of festivals, where you buy your ticket and don’t feel like you’re amidst the invading forces as in Sundance and Cannes. All of the good festivals feel distinctive. »

Jessica Chastain And Kristen Wiig In Early Talks For Ridley Scott’s The Martian

3 September 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jessica Chastain’s most excellent soapbox rant about female superheroes has clearly landed her in good stead. Variety reports today that the Oscar-nominated actress and comedy stalwart Kristen Wiig are now in the running for a role in Ridley Scott’s The Martian.

Should Chastain or Wiig sign on, they’ll appear opposite Matt Damon who at the moment is attached to play the lead. The story is based on the e-book by Andy Weir, which follows astronaut Mark Watney, one of the very first men to walk on Mars. After a freak storm accident on the red planet, he must do whatever it takes to survive.

Who Chastain or Wiig will play has yet to be determined, although we’d hazard a guess and say it’s one of his crew members. Chastain has made a career of bold performances. Her role in Zero Dark Thirty landed her an Oscar nod, »

Telluride: From ‘Birdman’ to ‘Mommy,’ Festival Soars Above the Fray

2 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: How was your Telluride, Scott? Mine was terrific — though I should note that I don’t really have a frame of reference, being a first-timer at this annual mountainside mecca for movie lovers. Still, I’m happy to report that just about everything I’ve heard is true: the unbeatable backdrop, the near-unbeatable films, above all that wondrous sense that the usual barriers separating filmmakers, journalists and audiences have magically melted away for one long weekend, uniting us all in one collective cinephile bliss-out. This is a festival where you’re as likely to pass Alexander Payne, Mike Leigh or the Dardenne brothers in the street as you are to make it into your next screening, and where a Megan Ellison sighting can send a momentary hush through a screening queue. (“You’re a rock star,” someone told her as we waited in line for Jon Stewart’s “Rosewater, »

First TV Spot for Nolan's 'Interstellar' Dreams Big with Dylan Thomas

26 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"Do not go gentle into that good night..." That beautiful quote you hear Michael Caine repeating in this latest TV spot and the trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, starring Matthew McConaughey, is actually a beautiful poem by Dylan Thomas. Titled "Do not go gentle into that good night", Caine uses the lines about "rage, rage against the dying of the light" to inspire these astronauts to fight on and rage against the darkness of the universe, and to find another world for life to live on. This new spot, dubbed an "IMAX TV Spot", is just a rehash of the magnificent third trailer with no new footage at all. Which is good because we don't need to see any more footage any more, let's all walk in from this point and enjoy the experience. Here's the new IMAX TV spot for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, from Warner Bros UK's »

Watch: 26-Minute Talk With Christopher Nolan About Making 'Following'

22 August 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Everyone has to start somewhere, and for Christopher Nolan got his chops together making corporate/industrial films. But he was destined for feature filmmaking, to which "Following," his first feature film, is testament. In this 26-minute conversation with Vice for The Criterion Collection, the director details his process on making the movie. The first thing that comes through in the talk is Nolan's perseverance to get the film done. The director and the crew all had day jobs they had to work during the week, so the film was shot in chunks (on Saturdays) over the course of a year. This stop/start approach meant approaching the project with an eye on efficiency and budget (they had very little time and money). And it's interesting to learn that the decision to shoot black-and-white wasn't made for aesthetics, but because filming in color would throw a whole bunch more variables into the production. »

Ranking the Films of the Caped Crusader

20 August 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For almost 50 years, Batman has graced the silver screen.  Whether working solo or accompanied by sidekicks and associates, Gotham City is continually saved by his enduring presence.  Even though the eight theatrical live-action films featuring the Caped Crusader have had their ups and downs, there is no denying his appeal as a lead character.

With that in mind, these are all theatrical Batman releases, ranked from worst to best:

8. Batman and Robin (1997)

The dark cloud over a struggling franchise, Joel Schumacher’s second directorial outing in the Batman franchise hammered the last nail in the coffin and became known as one of the worst sequels, nay films, of all time.  From the garish set design, poor character development, uninspired casting and hideously unfunny pun-filled script, Batman and Robin was a mistake from the moment it went into production.


7. Batman: The Movie (1966)

Occasionally forgotten as the first theatrical Batman film, this »

The Trip To Italy Review

10 August 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Winterbottom’s marriage of friendship and cuisine teaches us something special about life’s under-appreciated beauty. Think about how many times you barbarically power through a meal, either while watching mind-numbing television, chained to your desk at work, or squeezed in between hectic life events. Isn’t it sad how we take such a joyous occasion for granted? Meals should be shared escapes, exploring flavors and discovering new emotions, but more importantly, they should bring people together for a bit of peace, relaxation, and joyful interaction. The Trip nails this mentality, showcasing Winterbottom’s magnificent command over Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, and The Trip To Italy only builds upon the duo’s hilarious first effort. Hope you didn’t fill up on the appetizer, because Winterbottom’s second course is a truly decadent comedic treat.

HBO Drama Pilot Westworld Recruits Its Wider Cast

7 August 2014 3:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following the news that J.J. Abrams’ rather appropriately named Bad Robot would be moving ahead with a TV adaptation of Westworld, we now have official confirmation of the wider cast that will be joining lead stars Sir Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood in the troubled tourist attraction. The iconic movie that was released in 1973 was written and directed by Michael Crichton, and centred on a western-themed amusement park operated by humanoid robots that malfunction. This TV adaptation will present an alternative take on that premise, and with the cast list lengthening, the production is now gathering momentum.

Jeffrey Wright (Boardwalk Empire) will star as Bernard Lowe – Head of the theme park’s Programming Division. Alongside that character will be Shannon Woodward (Raising Hope), playing Elsie King – a talented member of the Programming Division who is headed for great things, and works to identify problematic behaviours among the park’s hosts. »

Quentin Tarantino, Chris Nolan & J.J. Abrams Save Film From Extinction

31 July 2014 6:44 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Digital filmmaking has overtaken analog, but there are some directors who refuse to let film stock die out. And so Hollywood studios are stepping in to lend support to Kodak in its time of crisis. Following Fujifilm's shutting down its film stock production last year, Kodak is the only company left that still makes the nearly obsolete medium. However, powerful directors like J.J. Abrams, Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino and Judd Apatow have joined forces to save Kodak from the brink of extinction. Together--with the help of some unnamed allies--they pushed Hollywood studios to step in and financially support Kodak so that film stock can continue to be made and processed. This will include keeping open Fotokem, the last film processing lab in Hollywood. THR reports that Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke declared in a statement: After extensive discussions with filmmakers, leading studios and others who recognize the unique artistic and »

Films paid for almost entirely by a wealthy(ish) benefactor

31 July 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Without the help of some brave investors, or the pockets of their makers, the following films would never have existed...

It's now a fairly common mantra that you'd be a fool to put up all of your own personal money into a feature film. By all means invest, but share the risk, or throw a few quid at Kickstarter.

Paying for the bulk of the negative/hard drive yourself, and leaving your own assets exposed? Utter lunacy.

Not that anyone told this lot...

The Passion Of The Christ Paid for by: Mel Gibson

For some time, Mel Gibson had, alongside his acting roles, been heavily invested in his production company, Icon. As such, he had two significant ways to earn money, and he needed both of them when it came to making The Passion Of The Christ.

This is the kind of film that studios run a mile from. All »
