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.
“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 »

What’s up folks? Thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response from you guys on my last article, I started to wonder… why should Marvel get all the fun? Cited by many as the series that forever changed the comic-book movie industry, Christopher Nolan’s dark and gritty trilogy has always been a favourite of mine. Full of heartwarming emotion, clever symbolism, memorable quotes and some fantastic villains, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises all rank amongst my Top 10 CBMs of all time. Scroll down to check out some of my favourite moments from the trilogy below… Honourable Mentions Ra's Trains Bruce, Batman Begins “Theatricality and deception are powerful agents. You must become more than just a man in the mind of your opponents.” – Ra's Al Ghul Despite having always been the ‘forgotten child’ of the trilogy, I’ve always found Batman Begins matches up to its sequels in almost every department. »
Chicago has not only doubled for Metropolis once already in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel, but was also utilized for the Gotham City scenes in the first two movies of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. In early November, Snyder and co. will return to the Windy City to shoot the Metropolis scenes for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but this time Gotham will be represented too in the form of the Caped Crusader himself. The below video report from Fox 32 details the current plans for the shoot, and features footage from Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Man Of Steel. Fox 32 News Chicago Zack Snyder directs Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which stars Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher »
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, »
The new Fox Batman prequel series Gotham divided both critics and fans with last week’s premiere, but I actually liked it a lot and am excited to see where the show goes from here. As I said in my review, the pilot wasn’t perfect, but it effectively laid the groundwork for what could prove to be an excellent series - if the writers and showrunners play their cards right.
The second episode, titled “Selina Kyle,” airs tonight, but a new promo for the rest of the season has already been released. The trailer clocks in at a hefty two minutes and thirty seconds, and it fills each second of screentime with cool Easter eggs and exciting gems for diehard Bat-fans.

The New York Film Festival has added David Fincher's "Gone Girl" to the equation and will do the same for Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice" in due time, but let me skip ahead a bit. The "Interstellar" onslaught, you see, has begun. New posters, interviews, a new trailer, TV spots during Sunday Night Football, more imagery, a reported (massive) running time, etc. Nolan's film is finished and has been shown here and there over the last week or so and, well, on a movie like this, it's hard to contain the trickle of buzz (even if everyone is probably signing NDAs). And the buzz is mostly great. However, when I hear certain things about the film — like how it finds a sweet spot between the emotion of Steven Spielberg and the intellect of Stanley Kubrick — I have to wonder if Nolan actually has the former in him. He »

X-Men: Days of Future Past did a lot to spin Fox's X-franchise on its head. While being a sequel to X-Men: First Class, and sharing a cast with all of the previous films, it essentially rebooted the series. In a rather ingenious way, Simon Kinberg, Bryan Singer, and their writing staff were able to give the series a fresh new start without having to press a Batman Begins-style "Reset Button." It's not the first time this has happened, as 2009's Star Trek also proved that you can use certain, accepted science fiction conventions to start things over without having to say that everything that came before it is now meaningless.
Kinberg sat down with Yahoo to discuss some of the ripples that will be felt all throughout the X-universe after the events of Days of Future Past. What stays? What goes? What can we expect? With X-Men: Apocalypse looming, »

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, »

You can expect Matt Nable's upcoming interpretation of Batman villain Ra's Al Ghul in the upcoming third season of The CW's "Arrow" to bear more of a resemblance to the comic book version of the character than Liam Neeson's turn in "Batman Begins".
Entertainment Weekly spoke with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg about the League of Assassins leader:
"Now that the Arrow/Flash universe contains people with powers and contains the Mirakuru serum, it gives us a bit more license to be a little more 'comic book-y' than certainly even Christopher Nolan set out to do.
A lot of the themes for Oliver's journey that we were discussing this season are wrapped up in identity. Can he be both Oliver Queen and the Arrow? A lot of that turned out to get tied up with what we thought of Ra's al Ghul and who he was and where he »

Earlier this week, Fox debuted "Gotham," which, according to social media, might be the best-worst-most-amazingly-terrible-show-ever (it was the first episode people, chill). Among other things, the series tracks young Bruce Wayne in the (many, many) years before he dons the mask and fights crime as Batman. But first his parents have to die. And they do. That inspired Vulture to throw together a supercut of every time the tragic death of Thomas and Martha Wayne has been depicted on film or on the small screen. From "Batman" to uh, "Batman Begins," along with a couple of animated versions as well, you can see every time that fateful outing to the movies ended badly. Check it out below. »

After two international trailers and a new poster, Warner Bros. has released the third domestic trailer for this impending sci-fi epic. Check out this latest look at the Wachowski Starship in action! »
Nolan hasn't done a film below two hours since "Insomnia". His previous two longest films were "The Dark Knight Rises" at 165 minutes, "The Dark Knight" at 152 minutes, "Inception" at 148 minutes and "Batman Begins" at 140 minutes.
Meanwhile, Slashfilm reports that IMAX will be installing a 15perf/70mm film projection system inside the Tcl Chinese Theater IMAX in Hollywood exclusively for the run of "Interstellar".
Before this point, the theater used an IMAX xenon dual digital projection system and is planning on swapping over to a laser projection system next year. The film will also screen in 70mm IMAX at Universal City in Los Angeles. »

As promotion for Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic Interstellar amps up, The Playlist have gathered together over 100 behind-the-scenes images from Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises -- which must undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest trilogies of all time. As I said, many of the snaps will be familiar to you, but there are quite a few rarities in there too. Enjoy. The Dark Knight Trilogy is a set of three Christopher Nolan Batman movies. It includes Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), and the last movie The Dark Knight Rises (2012). Only Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Cillian Murphy appeared in all three movies. All cast and crew members worked on all three movies, except for music composer James Newton Howard who did not work on The Dark Knight Rises. Composer Hans Zimmer composed the soundtracks for all three movies. »

Liam Neeson has scored a role in Seth MacFarlane's upcoming sequel to his hit comedy "Ted". Both Neeson and his "Batman Begins" co-star Morgan Freeman have been on the set to film this week. MacFarlane is returning to helm, co-write the script and voice the ribald title character. [Source: Twitter]

Apparently the set of A Million Days to Die in the West was a happy one: Liam Neeson is joining Amanda Seyfried in the cast of Ted 2, which will hopefully put his experience punching strange animals to good use. Also on board is Neeson's old Batman Begins costar Morgan Freeman, who signed up a few weeks ago to play "an iconic civil rights lawyer." Uh oh. »

(Cbr) Although we can never be assured that a film or television adaptation of Batman will be any good, there is one safe bet: It will likely include a depiction of the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne in Crime Alley (slow-motion shot of a broken string of pearls tumbling to the pavement optional, but preferred). "Gotham," which premiered Monday on Fox, was of course no exception, spurring Vulture to compile a supercut of the Waynes dying on screen, from "Super Friends" and Tim Burton’s "Batman" to "Batman Begins" and "Batman: Arkham Origins." I imagine this is what Bruce Wayne’s nightmares look like. »

We.re just over a month away from the hotly anticipated debut of Christopher Nolan.s sci-fi epic Interstellar . and we.ve still don.t know much of anything about it. That.s not going to change today, even with these six newly revealed images from the production. Someone get Nolan a job in National Security . this man can keep a secret. Empire scored the exclusive new images, which are at once mesmerizing and aggravating in that they really tell us nothing about the new film from the Batman Begins director, yet allow us to see some things and speculate about them anyway. Honestly, it wouldn.t surprise me at all if we discover these photos are all from relatively inconsequential scenes when we see the actual film. Nolan could just be trolling us all at this point. What we do know about the film is that involves Matthew McConaughey »
Bruce Wayne just can't seem to catch a break in this Batman supercut.
If witnessing your parents death once isn't bad enough, Vulture has decided to combine all the times they have died on screen, to create one long (morbid) alleyway scene.
Including moments from the upcoming Gotham, as well as Batman and Batman Begins, Master Wayne's parents meet their downfall over and over again in one overlapping scene complete with high-pitched screaming and blood.
So take a look, and watch poor young Bruce's happiness crumble again and again. »
