Joel Schumacher on Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, nipples

12 October 2014 10:34 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The director of Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, Joel Schumacher, has been talking about his turn as Batman's director...

The summer of 1997 proved a turning point in the career of director Joel Schumacher. Up until that point, he was one of Warner Bros' go-to directors, alternating Batman films with John Grisham movie adaptations, and turning them each into box office gold. Furthermore, his directorial CV is not short of interesting movies before that, from The Lost Boys to Falling Down.

Yet then Batman & Robin happened. And whilst Schumacher has made the odd good film since - Tigerland for a start - things clearly haven't been the same since.

In a new chat with Variety, Schumacher has been looking back at his time making Batman movies. And whilst a good chunk of what he's said there is stuff has covered before, it's no less interesting.

He revealed, for instance, that »

Joel Schumacher reflects on Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, and Bat-Nipples

12 October 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the weekend George Clooney took the opportunity to apologise once again for his part in the 1997 travesty Batman & Robin, a movie which brought the Batman franchise – and indeed the entire superhero genre – to its knees.

Now director Joel Schumacher has reflected on both that film and its 1995 predecessor Batman Forever in an interview with Variety at the Hamptons Film Festival, where he was being presented with a lifetime achievement award for directing.

During the interview, Schumacher spoke about both his Batman movies, addressing Bat-Nipples (“I think that will be on my gravestone. It’s how I’ll be remembered.”) as well as defending the cast of Batman & Robin and taking full responsibility for its failure. Here’s what he had to say:

Your “Batman” movies aren’t as dark as Christopher Nolan’s.

I was never able to go into the darkness. Because of “Batman Returns,” families had objected that it was too adult, »

Q&A: Joel Schumacher on ‘Batman,’ Ben Affleck and the Batsuit Nipples

11 October 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Joel Schumacher stopped by the Hamptons Film Festival on Saturday morning to accept a lifetime achievement award in directing. He later spoke with Variety about the ups and downs of his career, including 1995’s “Batman Forever,” which grossed $336 million worldwide, and 1997’s “Batman & Robin,” starring George Clooney, which was panned so badly that it temporarily killed the Dark Knight franchise for Warner Bros. Schumacher also recalled discovering Julia Roberts, Matthew McConaughey and Colin Farrell.

Your “Batman” movies aren’t as dark as Christopher Nolan’s.

I was never able to go into the darkness. Because of “Batman Returns,” families had objected that it was too adult, which is no criticism of Tim Burton’s. When they offered it to me, I went to Tim and said, “This is your franchise and they want me to do it. I won’t do it if you don’t want me to.” He said, »

True Detective Primer: The Darkest Roles from Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Vince Vaughn

26 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Earlier this week HBO finally confirmed that both Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn had signed on for the second season of True Detective. And if sources are correct, both men will be joined by Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch, who will round out the series’ four lead roles. The casting news is sure to draw excitement and ire among fans as debate unfolds about whether or not each actor is the right choice.

While it remains to be seen just how each actor does in the series, we rounded up their best roles that serve as a primer to the crime drama.

Most mans of Vince Vaughn know him for his hilarious comedies, such as Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, but there was a time when the actor explored a more serious side of things. In 2000′s The Cell, Vaughn goes inside the mind of a serial »

24 September 2014 4:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Vaughnaissance starts here! HBO has finally confirmed the news that everyone already knew - Vince Vaughn will star in the second season of True Detective. Expect to see a darker side to the big screen comedy star, who'll play a career criminal alongside Colin Farrell's compromised cop in Nic Pizzolatto's drama.

The duo aren't familiar faces on the small screen (Farrell's last recurring TV credit was Ballykissangel in the late '90s!), but here are 7 essential Vaughn and Farrell film to watch to get you ready for season two.

1. Swingers (1996)

Vince Vaughn burst onto the scene in the mid-'90s as Swingers' fast-talking cool cat Trent Walker. His character, a charismatic extrovert, stood in sharp contrast to Jon Favreau's more contemplative Mike. After Swingers put Vaughn on the map, he bagged roles in Jurassic Park: The Lost World and the Psycho remake - but »

Cinematographer Matthew Libatique Talks ‘Noah’ and Darren Aronofsky

23 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cinematographer Matthew Libatique has collaborated with Darren Aronofsky on all of his features save “The Wrestler.” This includes “Black Swan,” for which Libatique earned an Oscar nomination, and Aronofsky’s latest, “Noah,” a fanciful take on the Old Testament patriarch who built the ark.

The d.p. has repeated projects with Spike Lee (“Inside Man,” “Miracle at St. Anna”), Jon Favreau (the first two “Iron Man” films, “Cowboys & Aliens) and Joel Schumacher (“Tigerland,” “Phone Booth”). We spoke with Libatique, who will be participating in a cinematography master class on April 26 at the Newport Beach Film Festival, about “Noah,” the process and director/d.p. dynamics. This is an edited version of the conversation.

The setting and look of “Noah” suggests both a pre-civilized and post-apocalyptic world. What was your aesthetic approach in achieving this?

It was a focus on naturalism. The film ultimately goes in a place where you’re »

Going it alone: Tom Hardy's Locke and 8 more incredible solo performances

18 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hardy delivers a mesmerising solo performance in this week's Locke, holding attention for the duration as the only actor on screen. Steven Knight's car-bound thriller is the latest in a long line of films that have zeroed in on one character and offered the lead an opportunity to flex their acting chops.

With Locke in cinemas now, Digital Spy takes a look at 8 great performances from stars going it alone.

Robert Redford (All Is Lost)

The Hollywood veteran barely utters a word in Jc Chandor's nautical survival drama, but his performance as a man battling nature and his sinking yacht is still devastatingly effective. The ending leaves a note of ambiguity, but up until that point this has been a clear-eyed drama about doing what needs to be done when things go bad.

James Franco (127 Hours)

Based on Aron Ralston's ordeal trapped beneath a boulder in the canyons of Utah, »
