Paul Turner (Lowe) is a savvy strategist sharply maneuvering politicians out of scandal and into public office. With the help of a bright young assistant (Chung) and his team, Turner spins every news cycle on behalf of his clients, which include a philandering Kentucky governor (Eric McCormack, TV’s Will & Grace) and a blackmailed California senator and an idealistic doctor turned gubernatorial candidate (Carrie-Anne Moss, Memento, The Matrix series). When the ugly side of Turner’s work begins to haunt him, he learns that even in the bloodiest of battles, sometimes you have to fight clean.
Directed and co-written by televisiondocumentary veteran Bob Guttentag, Knife Fight also stars »
He’s a director that has been established as a visionary from as far back as his second full-length feature Memento, and proved again and again with his Batman trilogy that he had many tricks up his sleeve. And though I’ve somewhat tarnished my personal view of the infallibility of Inception, I can’t escape that it’s a visual bravado of a film. And if you’ll notice, there are a few recurring motifs in Nolan’s writing that just make him perfect for the James Bond franchise. And, though it’s well-documented on the Internet, Nolan’s not been afraid to be vocal about his love for James Bond.
“I’ve loved the Bond films since I was a kid. For me, they’re always about the expansiveness of cinema. The first Bond films set up infinite possibilities about the world they create. I’d love to do a Bond film. »

Reports are surfacing that the epic Dark Knight and Inception director is in talks with Bond chiefs Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli to tackle where the suave super spy goes next. He’s certainly been a fan choice for some time, not only as the next outing, but previous to Mendes.
Nolan’s a fine British filmmaker and has yet to put a foot wrong on his career ladder. Making a fine debut with Following, impressing with head-twisiting thrillers Memento and Insomnia before dropping jaws with his Batman reboot and their subsequent spectacular sequels. Not forgetting his other starry mind-bender sci-fi thriller, Inception, sandwiched in-between.

Tied to its 20th birthday, the second Blu-ray release of action movie The Fugitive comes with a new featurette.
The 1993 crime film stars Harrison Ford (Cowboys & Aliens) as Dr. Richard Kimble, who’s convicted of killing his wife (Sela Ward, TV’s CSI: NY). Claiming his innocence, Kimble goes on the run. While U.S. Marshall Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones, The Company Men) and his team try to track down Kimble, the doctor must find the real killer, for justice and to save himself.
Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Right) and Joe Pantoliano (Memento) also star in the PG-13 movie, which has grossed $184 million in theaters. The Fugitive also won an Oscar and a Golden Globe, both for Tommy Lee Jones’ supporting role.
The Fugitive 20th Anniversary Blu-ray contains two new special features:

The past two years have been pretty special in the career of Jessica Chastain. The ginger babe had been sloughing through the dregs of TV guest spots and charming (but hardly ever seen) indies for ages before being recognized as the little snowflake that she is and thrust into the Cannes spotlight for Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life." Two years later, she's navigated back-to-back awards seasons as a nominee and the gettin' is officially good. The world is her dainty little oyster.
So, naturally, the ambitious thesp is ready to launch into some new territory next: outer space. And Christopher Nolan'll be captaining the ship.
Yahoo! Movies confirms that the "Zero Dark Thirty" heroine has joined the cast of director Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" as the third lead, with Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway already strapped in for the ride.

Exclusive: Jessica Chastain is in talks to star with Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway in Interstellar, the next film that Christopher Nolan will direct. She will play the third lead, I’m told, and this is a great follow to her Oscar-nominated turn in Zero Dark Thirty. Quite a cast Nolan is cooking up; Hathaway won the Oscar for Les Miserables, and McConaughey is on a run himself. Not much is known about the specific log line (Nolan and cohorts work under the cone of silence) and that includes casting. I was able to break the news about McConaughey (he confirmed it a week later), and also Hathaway. The film is a co-production between Paramount and Warner Bros and was put in motion by Lynda Obst, who commissioned the original treatment. Steven Spielberg came aboard in 2006, when Paramount owned DreamWorks, and after the filmmaker became intrigued by Caltech physicist and relativity expert Kip S. »

It looks like we finally have the name of Chris Nolan's new cinematographer. Ever since his original DoP, Wally Pfister (who's worked with him on everything since Memento), went to direct his own movies, fans have been wondering who he would get instead. Especially considering his new movie is the ambitious sci-fi Interstellar, starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. Word on Dutch site Film Abides is that Swiss cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema mentioned in an interview with "VARAgids" that he would be working on a "major Hollywood movie" next - meaning Interstellar. So this is Nolan's new Director of Photography? He seems like an inspired choice if it is, with strong visual sensibilities that we've seen before. Hat tip to Nolan Fans for first catching this. We reached out to Paramount Pictures, handling the Us release of Interstellar, for final confirmation but have not heard back yet. While he »

Holy Renaissance, Batman, that was fast! The unique new show, Starz own Da Vinci’s Demons, gets a headline today for earning a second season renewal just a few days after its series premier! I’ll tell you why this shouldn’t surprise you.
More than 2.14 million viewers checked out Da Vinci’s Demons during its premiere weekend, which was just last weekend, making it the highest-rated launch ever for an original Starz series, reported TV Line. I know a cast that should be doing some major celebrating right about now.
According to the show’s official website, it uncovers Da Vinci during his early years, set in a time and place in history when “thought and faith are controlled,” yet “one man fights to set knowledge free.”
It’s further called “a portrait of a young man tortured by a gift of superhuman genius. He is a heretic intent »

Directed by Christopher Nolan
Written by Christopher Nolan
There’s something to be said about neglecting to watch the classics, excuses to be made. A sense of urgency compels you to sit down and watch, if nothing else, so that you will be able to discuss a seminal work with confidence. This sense of urgency is all the more potent when it comes to modern classics. They are fresh on the mind of serial filmgoers and have a tangible influence on new releases attempting to replicate their success. Memento was released thirteen years ago. It launched Christopher Nolan’s career and made it possible for him to become the puzzle film writer/director. And yet I had never seen it. That is, until now.

While he may not be as beloved as that other Paul Anderson, shlock-auteur Paul W.S. Anderson has never been hurting for work. His latest effort, the period-disaster 3D film “Pompeii” has seen a flurry of casting additions and it now has a release date smack dab in the middle of the early-year dumping ground. The film, which stars “Game Of Thrones” actor Kit Harington and Emily Browning as doomed lovers during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 Ad, has added “The Matrix” and “Memento” star Carrie-Anne Moss as Browning’s mother as well as “Evil Dead” victim Jessica Lucas and “Lost” castaway Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje as Browning’s slave/confidante and Harington’s fellow enslaved gladiator, respectively. And finally, per The Wrap, TriStar Pictures has set the release date for the film for next year on February 28, 2014, a date which the film has all to itself for now. So prepare for yourself for all. »

Looks like Anne Hathaway is having a great year. After winning the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for her role in Les Miserables (2012), now she is on the verge of signing up for Christopher Nolan's new movie, Interstellar (2014), where she will play alongside Matthew McConaughey, according to Deadline.com. This will be the second collaboration for the two of them, after her portrayal of Selina/Catwoman in Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises (2012). Interstellar (2014) is set to hit the theaters late in 2014. As with other Nolan films, the storyline remains a mystery, but it appears that it will include space explorations and wormhole and time travel. What the story will really be about remains to be seen. Interstellar (2014) is a seven year old project, initially started by director Steven Spielberg after he became intrigued by Caltech physicist and relativity expert Kip S. Thorne and his scientific theory that wormholes exist »

She joins the already cast Matthew McConaughey, the lead of the movie, in the Jonathan Nolan (Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight) scripted original (albeit based on scientific theories by Caltech physicist and relativity expert Kip S. Thorne)
about a group of explorers who go through a wormhole and will deal with time travel and alternate dimensions.
The official plot synopsis we have so far;
The film will depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.
McConaughey plays a character named Cooper. No specifics yet on Hathaway’s role.
For Hathaway, the role is a continuation of the massive ride of success the actress has been having lately. She is coming off her Academy Award win for Les Miserables and last summer starred as Catwoman in the Chris Nolan blockbuster, »

The movie follows a slave-turned-gladiator named Milo who sets out to rescue his true love Flavia from the clutches of a corrupt Roman General; all of this while in the midst of a massive volcanic eruption.
Last month, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Sutherland would play the villain.
Deadline says that the film started shooting in Pompeii last month and is now in Toronto.

The Scorecard Review news
News: After winning an Oscar for Les Misérables, Anne Hathaway is reportedly nearing a deal to star in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. If the deal gets done, she’ll join Matthew McConaughey in the sci-fi adventure. The film is set to hit theaters and IMAX on November 7, 2014.
Thoughts by Tsr: Oh my, Interstellar keeps getting better and better. It’s still a year and a half until this hits theaters, but so far everything is sounding terrific. Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr. first told us Matthew McConaughey had been offered the lead role (the actor later confirmed his casting in an interview with the Star Tribune). Now Deadline has heard that Anne Hathaway is nearing a deal to star alongside McConaughey. That has me very excited considering Hathaway was the runaway best part of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. I’d go »

Hey remember way back on Thursday when we told you that Matthew McConaughey is going to star in Christopher Nolan's new sci-fi epic "Interstellar?" Well, it turns out that he's not the only one, as according to Deadline, Oscar winning actress Anne Hathaway is in talks to reunite with her "The Dark Knight Rises" director as McConaughey's co-star.
Are you ready for Catwoman in Space?
Before you get too excited, we should reiterate that there's no deal yet in place, so it's possible this one might fall through. But given Nolan's track record of putting together the smartest blockbusters in Hollywood (see: "Inception") and their working relationship, "Interstellar" would seem to be the perfect follow-up for Hathaway after her award-winning turn in "Les Miserables."
And frankly, we'd love to see what Hathaway can do in a juicy science fiction epic. Details about "Interstellar" are, of course, being treated like nuclear launch codes, »

A few days ago, it was reported that Matthew McConaughey is in talks to play Cooper, the lead male role in Christopher Nolan's next film, which is called "Interstellar" and is set to hit theaters on November 7th, 2014. The Star Tribune had a chance to speak to McConaughey and asked him to confirm or deny his involvement. "I'm confirming," replied the actor. The plan is to make a movie that will depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding. "Interstellar" was the idea of Steven Spielberg, who set up the project with DreamWorks back in 2006. The director was intrigued by Caltech physicist Kip S. Thorne (who's producing) and his scientific theory that wormholes exist and can be used for time travel. Christopher Nolan's brother Jonah Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises, The Dark Knight, Prestige, Memento) was hired to write the script. Eventually Spielberg dropped out, »

Matthew McConaughey has been enjoying an impressive career-revival as of late, after starring in well-received indie films such as Killer Joe and Magic Mike. Now it seems as though all that hard work is going to pay dividends after Deadline reported that Christopher Nolan (Inception, Memento) has offered the actor the lead role in his [...]

If you thought Danny Boyle could do no wrong after the Olympic ceremony, this overcooked art heist is proof that even great directors have career blips
In this country, we like our National Treasures, largely late-middle-aged men in public life of a certain assumed fluffiness. But Danny Boyle has gone far beyond that, and at a far younger age. He is (rightly) a National Hero whose Olympic opening ceremony, Isles of Wonder, was a multimedia masterpiece of an unprecedented kind. Before that, there was the small matter of an Academy award and a triumph for his Frankenstein at London's National Theatre, and after the Games he cemented his heroic status in our hearts and minds by calmly declining a reward in the honours list. So anything new from this remarkable man has to be an event.
What he has given us is a vertiginously high-concept psychological thriller, headspinning in its ostensible ambition. »

Over the last few years, Christopher Nolan has rapidly established himself as one of Hollywood’s finest directors, despite his comparatively young age (42) in relation to many of his counterparts.
His career began in 1998 when his first feature, Following, generated a significant amount of buzz on the festival circuit, prompting the funding of his next film, Memento, which more than quadrupled its budget. A 2002 remake of the Norwegian film Insomnia (arguably Al Pacino’s last good film) then led to him being handed the reins to the Batman franchise, which was in tatters after the critical mauling that Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin had received.
The rest is, as they say, history. Batman Begins, released in 2005, rebooted the character in a dark and gritty fashion, spawning two sequels which both grossed over a billion dollars worldwide. All three received significant critical acclaim, with The Dark Knight even winning an Oscar »
