Oscars News: Will 'Interstellar' finally be Christopher Nolan's ticket to his first Oscar win?'

17 October 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jeff Jensen offers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at potential Oscar kingpin "Interstellar." Directed by Christopher Nolan, the sci-fi epic opens on November starring recent Academy Award winners Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway across the universe to try and "find salvation for the human race." The epic is timed at two hours, 47 minutes and is compared more to the serious-minded "2001: A Space Odyssey" than the escapist "Star Wars." Nolan says, "We are at an interesting moment where science realizes it has to begin addressing abstractions and human elements, and I wanted to get that in the film. It also speaks to the heart of the movie and the dilemma facing our characters." After three previous Oscar nods for "Memento" and "Inception" (and a snub for "The Dark Knight"), Nolan is still looking for his first victory.

Inside 'Interstellar,' Christopher Nolan's emotional space odyssey

16 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

They say we don't go to outer space anymore. But Christopher Nolan is doing a pretty good job of faking it. It's October 2013, and we are on the set of code name Flora's Letter, a.k.a. Interstellar, an epic sci-fi adventure that represents the beginning of the director's post-Batman life. Working on the same soundstage where he once built a dank batty cave for Christian Bale to skulk in, the British-American helmer has constructed a starship to take Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway across the universe to find salvation for the human race. On screen that ship, the Endurance, »

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. »

Watch: New Trailer for Nicole Kidman Starrer 'Before I Go To Sleep'

6 October 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Having read (and enjoyed) the book by S.J. Watson and now seeing the filmed adaptation of Before I Go To Sleep (10/31) has gone to Clarius Entertainment, I feel like I'm going to have to pass on the upcoming thriller in which Nicole Kidman stars as a woman who wakes up every day, remembering nothing as a result of a traumatic accident in her past. One day, new terrifying truths emerge that force her to question everyone around her. It's one thing to read the description of the novel and seeing it compared to Christopher Nolan's Memento and then reading the book, but it was never a story that would easily translate to the big screen, at least not in a way that looks as hacky as what Rowan Joffe has done here. amz asin="B004GUSG4M" size="small"When you're reading the novel it doesn't have any of these massive visual flourishes, »

Top Cinematographers Offer Online Course on Filmmaking

30 September 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three major cinematographers – Janusz Kaminski (“Lincoln”), Phedon Papamichael (“Nebraska”) and Wally Pfister (“The Dark Knight Rises”) – have teamed to present Advanced Filmmaking, a series of online instructional videos for aspiring filmmakers.

In addition to extensive interviews with the three d.p.’s, the course offers more than 12 hours of chats with their collaborators, including directors Alexander Payne and Wim Wenders.

“We conceived Advanced Filmmaking as a way to communicate lessons that aren’t normally covered in film school,” says Papamichael. “In our interactions with students and young filmmakers around the world, we saw a thirst for information about other topics like successful collaboration, making good career decisions and managing your personal life.”

Course modules vary in length, averaging about a half hour, and can be can be rented for one week via video sharing site Vimeo for $3.95.

The d.p. trio know one another well, having met at the beginning »

Looking back at the Amityville Horror franchise

30 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sarah looks back at the Amityville films, and finds a lot of scary things, not all of which were intentional…

112 Ocean Avenue, Long Island is probably the most famous haunted house in the world. Not that you’ll necessarily recognise the address – it’s far better known as the Amityville Horror house. Back in 1975, George and Kathy Lutz moved their family into the house… and then 28 days later, they moved back out, claiming to have been driven out by supernatural forces. Their story made the news, was turned into a book, and then made into a movie, in 1979.

It’s hard to imagine now that a family claiming to have encountered the devil in their basement could cause such a massive fuss, but I’m not here to interrogate the truth of their statement. What I am here to do, though, is to watch all of the Amityville Horror movies made to date, »

McConaughey Suits Up for 'Interstellar' Empire Magazine Cover

23 September 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If the four posters Paramount Pictures rolled out last week, and yesterday's one-sheet for Interstellar weren't enough for you, then feast your eyes on the new Empire Magazine cover, featuring star Matthew McConaughey suited up for his space walk.

The actor stars as Cooper, who joins a team of explorers on a lengthy journey into outer space to save planet Earth. He is joined by a stellar supporting cast that includes Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow and Topher Grace in this highly-anticipated sci-fi adventure, arriving in theaters November 7. Take a look at the magazine cover below, then read on for more details from director Christopher Nolan.

Christopher Nolan first made a name for himself with the inventive indie drama Memento, which used a non-linear narrative to tell that story in an incredibly unique way. The filmmaker revealed that Interstellar, on the other hand, has a more classic narrative structure. »

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. »

10 Great Film Directors and Their Very Specific Obsessions

15 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There are some directors whose work you can identify on the spot because of their films' style, look, music, or the actors involved. (Think Wes Anderson or Tim Burton.) And then there are some who can be I.D.d by recurring motifs that pop up again and again in their work. Alfred Hitchcock had a weird thing for blondes, yet compared to some of these other filmmakers' recurring obsessions, Hitch seems downright clean-cut. Let's take a look at some of our favorite directors and their … well, interesting proclivities.Christopher Nolan:Dead wives (Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception)Nolan is beloved by his fan base for the tightly calculated precision of his screenwriting and shooting styles. In that cool detachment, he may have been unaware of an increasingly disturbing trope that shows up time and again in his films: dead wives. The entire plot of Memento is driven »

What Does The Ending Of Memento Really Mean

15 September 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Summit Entertainment

Before he resurrected Batman and made us forever uncertain if we were actually dreaming, Christopher Nolan made Memento. A twisting tale of revenge told in reverse, the film was the first suggestion to many that Nolan was something really special (it was only his second feature film).

Widely regarded as one of the director’s best films (and also of the 21st Century as a whole), Memento has betrayed its indie origins and become a widely regarded masterpiece. It was incredibly strong at box office thanks to glowing word-of-mouth, but it’s on DVD where the film really exploded, becoming a must see for a whole generation of movie goers.

But what’s actually going on? Memento is intricately presented in a manner that require multiple rewatches to just pin down what’s going on, while Nolan himself has thrown irritatingly conflicting viewpoints out there that make unravelling the story incredibly tricky. »

Movie Review – Before I Go to Sleep (2014)

7 September 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before I Go to Sleep, 2014.

Directed by Rowan Joffe.

Starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Anne-Marie Duff.

Synopsis:

A woman wakes up every day, remembering nothing as a result of a traumatic accident in her past. One day, new terrifying truths emerge that force her to question everyone around her.

Here’s a film which relies entirely on the promise of a twist we never saw coming, hoping the hour or so we invest into the build up to said twist, and the ensuing payoff, will be worth the wait. The twist is great and I didn’t see it coming, but the build up and payoff really is not worth the price of admission.

The film, to its credit, wastes no time in getting into the story which, at a surface level, is quite intriguing. A 40 year old woman, Christine Lucas (Nicole Kidman), wakes up every day »

Before I Go To Sleep review

4 September 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth come back together, for an adaptation of S J Watson's Before I Go To Sleep. Here's our review...

The scenes shared by Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman in The Railway Man earlier this year were the highlights by far of an otherwise disappointing picture. Both stars are excellent independently of one another, but there's clearly something about pairing them up that lifts the work of both.

The two share a lot more screen time in Before I Go To Sleep, writer/director Rowan Joffe's adaptation of the apparently strong book by S J Watson. In fact, they're in each other's arms as the movie opens, although we quickly learn that all is not well. Kidman's character, Christine Lucas, is suffering from memory loss after an unexplained incident. Each day, Firth's Ben Lucas needs to remind her of where she is, who he is, and her recent history. »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

Film Review: Nicole Kidman in ‘Before I Go To Sleep’

1 September 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before I Go To Sleep” is a risky title for a genre exercise intended to keep viewers bolt upright in their seats, handing mirthful critics a ready-made punchline at the first sign of lethargy. The good news is that Rowan Joffe’s adaptation of S.J. Watson’s 2011 publishing phenom is far from a snooze; the bad news is that it’s the film’s escalating, po-faced ludicrousness that holds our attention. Starring a typically hard-working Nicole Kidman as a short-term amnesiac unsure whether she’s being played by her husband, her shrink or both, With David Fincher’s similarly targeted “Gone Girl” already siphoning its buzz, this dopey diversion will need the novel’s fans to turn out en masse to avoid being forgotten by morning.

A planned Halloween release Stateside — weeks after the film’s Sept. 5 release in Blighty and elsewhere — might lead auds to expect an out-and-out frightfest, »

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 »

Being Batman: The Actors Underneath the Cowl

17 August 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

“What are you?’ That question has been on many a criminal’s mind for numerous decades. Out of absolute fear, these evildoers stare into the face of darkness personified, a creature of the night that is a true symbol of justice. I’m talking of course about Batman, the Dark Knight, a crimefighter who strikes fear into the hearts of those deserve it. He is a highly complex character and throughout his 75-year history, many talented (and some not so talented) actors have brought him to life on the silver screen.

Lewis Wilson Batman (1943) The first film appearance of the Caped Crusader occurred at the height of World War II in 1943, four years after the character’s creation. Lewis Wilson portrayed Batman in a 15-chapter film serial released by Columbia Pictures, in which he and trusty sidekick Robin go head to head with Dr. Daka, a demented Japanese scientist who »

Nicole Kidman Can’t Remember Nuthin’ in Thriller Before I Go To Sleep

15 August 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Which is bad for her, because apparently her husband played by Colin Firth may or may not be who he claims to be, and that could prove dangerous for our confused gal. Plus, Mark Strong is all up in her business and such, and maybe he wants even more than just to be her friend. All of that in director Rowan Joffe’s psychological thriller “Before I Got to Sleep.” Check out a trailer, poster, and some images for the flick below. It kinda looks like Christopher Nolan’s “Memento,” only with fewer tattoos. A taut thriller based on the worldwide best-selling novel by S.J. Watson, Before I Go To Sleep is the story of a woman (Nicole Kidman) who wakes up every day with no memory as the result of a traumatic accident in her past. One day, terrifying new truths begin to emerge that make her question everything »
