Still Review [Ciff 2014]

18 October 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

First time directing – alongside writing – isn’t an easy process, and usually results with a watchable average film that feels more like a directorial experimental process. Take arguably the world’s hottest director right now, Christopher Nolan; if you go watch Following and then continue watching his filmography chronologically, you will begin to notice an evolution of sorts with his shot composition, personable style, narrative structure, and directing in general. The point being is that a director’s first outing is usually their weakest production because it’s typically the beginning of their career. That same logic applies to everything really; this review is probably leagues better than the first one I wrote.

Still does not feel like a film created by a first-time director though, it’s the complete opposite. Director Simon Blake has filled this movie with multiple unique shots – scenes filmed from outside a halfway closed-door, dirty »

Three New Interstellar TV Spots Launched

15 October 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Following in the moon-boot steps of Kubrick, Kaufman, Tarkovsky, Trumbull and others, Christopher Nolan is blasting off into space with his new epic. If you’ve read Empire's Interstellar-y November issue – and it’s not too late – you’ll know that it carries the spirit of all those “hard sci-fi” pioneers in its cargo, as well as the thrills you’d expect from the man behind Inception and The Dark Knight. With the film gearing up for its worldwide release, both strands are present and correct in three new TV spots. The first TV spot, the longest of the bunch, is called ‘Future'. It sets Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway’s mission to the stars in the context of the Steinbeck-tinged dustbowl Earth has become. Humanity’s very existence is riding on the mission, but there are real humans involved and people being left behind.For the second ad, »

The Academy’s Producer Dilemma

8 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Determining which producers can receive recognition at the Oscars for a best picture nomination has been debated for years, particularly since Shakespeare in Love (1998) won at the 71st Academy Awards. This could be up for debate again this year due to the potential exclusion of two Boyhood producers during the upcoming Oscars. As first reported by The Wrap, John Sloss, a lawyer and producer, and Jonathan Sehring, president of IFC Films — which financed and distributed the film — are listed as producers on the film, but they were not recognized by the Producers Guild of America (PGA).

The rules for producers and nominations have changed multiple times since 1999, with the most recent change made this year. The rule states that two-person producing teams could count as a single “producer” should the team meet specific requirements. Here’s a brief look at the history and controversy behind »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: Batman talkback!

6 October 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Big week for Bat-talk! Last week, I published a couple Geekly columns focusing on the Dark Knight Detective. First, I drew up my list of the hundred greatest Batman comics, movies, TV episodes, etc. Then I considered whether it was possible to have entirely too much Batman at one time. And would you believe it, everyone has an opinion about Batman–and a ton of great recommendations! Read on for the highlights. Darren Franich was dead-on right in his piece 'Dark Knight Fatigue Rises,' but from just one perspective. In July of 2013, Cartoon Network debuted DC Animation's new CG series "Beware the Batman. »

Anne Hathaway Says Fame 'F--ked Me Up'

29 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Anne Hathaway, the Oscar-winning actress, recently admitted that achieving fame was a difficult experience for her.

Anne Hathaway On Fame

"This fame thing? F--ked me up for a really long time," Hathaway told Elle U.K. "I didn't know how to do it; I didn't know how to engage with it; it stressed me out. And people would say, 'You just have to be yourself,' and I was like, 'But I don't know who that is yet!'"

The media attention on Hathaway reached an all-time high following her performance as Fantine in Tom Hooper's Les Miserables. Though Hathaway earned an Oscar for the performance, she also received a fair amount of criticism – which mostly consisted of personal attacks that had little to do with her acting chops. A couple years removed from the worst of it, Hathaway says she’s no longer troubled by others’ perceptions.

Entertainment Geekly: The Batman Top 100

29 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - 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 | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net 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 | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net 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 | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net 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 »
