Iron Man 3 now stands in position 16 on the all-time worldwide box office grossers list with $1.0008 billion. Next up to pass for the iron-clad Avenger is Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight which settled into the 15 position previously with $1.004 billion.
Here in North America, Iron Man 3 crossed the $300 million mark with $301.9 million and counting. It is expected to wrap up its North America box office run somewhere in the neighborhood of $350 to $400 million.
Overseas is where Iron Man 3 has really shined with $698.9 million to date. China is the standout country with over $100 million in ticket sales, fitting considering Marvel and Disney shot exclusive scenes for Chinese audiences and marketed heavily to it.
In comparison to the previous Iron Man films, »

With Sam Mendes passing on the opportunity to helm the next instalment in the James Bond franchise, Eon Productions has a pretty big job on its hands replacing the Skyfall director for 007's next big screen adventure. However, if a new rumour is to be believed, it seems that producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are looking to turn to another acclaimed British filmmaker, with The Daily Mail reporting that Christopher Nolan is in early talks about directing Bond 24.
On the surface, it seems highly unlikely that Nolan could fit Bond 24 into his schedule, with The Dark Knight Trilogy director currently prepping his mysterious sci-fi flick Interstellar, which is due to open in cinemas on November 7th, 2014. However, back in March MGM Chairman Gary Barber said to expect Daniel Craig's fourth outing "within the next three years" so it could be a possibility if Sony, Eon »

We knew it would be big, but did anyone really think it would be this big? After just 25 days on release, Marvel's Iron Man 3 has become the first film of 2013 to cross $1 billion at the global box office, and only the 16th film in history to achieve that feat.
As of today the Shane Black-directed solo sequel is now the fourth biggest comic book movie of all time behind The Avengers ($1.511 billion), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.084 billion) and The Dark Knight ($1.004 billion). It looks certain to surpass both Dark Knight films and go on to crack the all time top ten, with tenth place currently occupied by Pixar's Toy Story 3 on $1.063 billion, and could even end up occupying a spot in the top five.

Now that Warner Bros.’ television and home entertainment divisions have been re-aligned, all eyes are focused on whether newly installed CEO Kevin Tsujihara will implement a similar management shakeup at the studio’s motion picture operation.
The fate of the movie group’s top executive, Jeff Robinov, is on the minds of those both inside and outside the Burbank lot. Despite his skills as a seasoned creative executive and a summer lineup of potential blockbusters that’s the envy of his rivals, Robinov, 54, has made some major missteps that raise questions about his leadership.
When he learned in late January that he hadn’t landed the CEO job at Warner Bros., the executive did something unthinkable: He yelled at and hung up the phone on his boss, Barry Meyer, after the WB honcho delivered the bad news to him the night before the announcement of Tsujihara’s promotion was made public. »

Marvel is proud to announce that "Iron Man 3" has now crossed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office, and in just 23 days of release. This is the second Marvel film the sixth Disney movie to reach the milestone. Other Disney films to have accomplished this are "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," "Alice in Wonderland," "Toy Story 3," "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "The Avengers." "Iron Man 3" has become the fourth highest-grossing superhero movie of all time (behind "The Avengers," "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Dark Knight") and sixteenth highest-grossing film of all time. It just needs another $84 million to become the biggest superhero movie. Click here to read our "Iron Man 3" review. »
Ever since "Skyfall" grossed over $1 billion at global box office and became the most successful James Bond installment, producers started thinking about how they will top it. Unfortunately, Sam Mendes will likely not return to direct and people like Danny Boyle have no interest in tackling franchise films. So the one name that keeps popping up is Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), who previously said that he would one day love to direct a James Bond movie. The Daily Mail is now reporting that "James Bond" producer Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have approached Nolan and negotiations are now in early stages. Nolan is currently working on his "Interstellar" film, and it's not clear if he'll be able to complete it and still have time to begin work on the new Bond movie. Stay tuned. »
He made us love Batman even more with "The Dark Knight" series, and he's about to do the same thing with Superman as executive producer of "Man of Steel," and now, Christopher Nolan may put his magic touch to James Bond.
Having Nolan as director of anything is wonderufl! I worship his filmmaking abilities. But let's wait and see if Bond 24 will fall under his guidance. »
With Skyfall‘s Sam Mendes deciding against returning for the next film, the search for a Bond 24 director is now under-way. The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has previously said he’d “love to do a Bond film” as he thinks “James Bond is one of the great characters in contemporary fiction”. If things work out, [...]

At this rate, Marvel might be just as rich as “Iron Man 3′s” fictional billionaire playboy/philanthropist/part-time superhero Tony Stark, with the comic book threequel officially surpassing the much-ballyhooed $1 billion worldwide box office this week, making it just the 16th film to do so. (Though “Jurassic Park”, thanks to its recent 3D re-release, is threatening to make it the 17th film.) It’s looking likely that “Iron Man 3″ will overtake Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight”, which currently sits at #15 in all-time worldwide box office with $1.004 billion. It’s also not out of the question that ol Shellhead’s third outing could potentially catch up to #14′s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” ($1.017 billion) and “Alice in Wonderland” (at $1.024 billion). As of today, “Iron Man 3″ has earned just a shade over $300 million domestically and nearly $700 million worldwide, thanks to the film bowing overseas first. The people most »
If there's one thing that is very, very, very clear, it's that “Dark Knight” director Christopher Nolan loves James Bond. Ever since he decided to do massive movies, he has included sequences that could have been lifted directly from one of the dashing adventures of Britain's most suave superspy. Nolan knows how to mimic James Bond set pieces in tone and intensity. There's the Hong Kong sequence from “The Dark Knight,” the whole third act of “Inception” (with the snow fort, which seems to have been a hodgepodge lift of various Bond tropes), and the opening sequence of “The Dark Knight Rises,” which had more jaw-dropping spectacle than all of “Quantum of Solace” combined. Now, Nolan may get his chance to do a 007 entry himself. According to the UK paper the Daily Mail (so please, find the biggest grain of salt you can and take it), “informal talks have begun »

The Daily Mail is reporting that The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has been approached to helm the next James Bond film. They say that talks are still in the early/informal stages with Nolan and his representatives but that Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have started courting him for the job. Previous reports on "Bond 24" indicate that the screenplay is currently being worked on, with MGM eyeing a release for the project within the next three years. Should Nolan sign on, this timetable might need to be altered to accomodate his schedule (he is currently working on Interstellar , which is scheduled to hit theaters on November 7, 2014).Nolan's track record, however, shows he is capable of churning out big projects in less than two years, so a 2016 »
Usually the most trusted source for news out of the Bond camp, Baz claims that The Dark Knight trilogy director’s representatives have met with producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson over helming Bond 24, which is currently rudderless.
Pre-production on the next 007 film was actually halted earlier this year when Sam Mendes reluctantly turned down overtures to direct a follow-up to the record breaking and critically acclaimed box office smash Skyfall, citing scheduling conflicts with his theatre commitments.
With Mendes out of the picture, Nolan as a replacement, the hottest director on the planet right now, would certainly appease many but we should stress this is extremely early days and informal talks are far from a firm offer being made. In truth, it could be »

Marvel hero's latest outing becomes the second most successful comic-book film in history after outstripping The Dark Knight
Iron Man 3 has passed the $1bn mark at the global box office, less than four weeks after it first hit cinemas.
The superhero sequel has also become the second highest-grossing comic book film of all time after passing The Dark Knight, which pulled in $1.004bn in 2008. Starring Robert Downey Jr in what has become the actor's signature role as Iron Man/Tony Stark, Shane Black's film will now take aim at its predecessor in Marvel Studios' series of superhero movies, last year's The Avengers.
Joss Whedon's ensemble outing, which featured Iron Man alongside the Hulk, Captain America and Thor, made it to $1bn in just 19 days and eventually racked up $1.5bn, the third highest gross of all time. By contrast, Iron Man 3 reached the figure in 24 days. »

When Sam Mendes confirmed that he wouldn't be returning to helm the follow-up to last year's critically acclaimed Skyfall, many fans were left wondering who on Earth would be able to fill his shoes and deliver a Bond movie even a fraction as good. Perhaps that's why The Dark Knight Trilogy's Christopher Nolan is such a popular choice, and Mail Online is now reporting that the director is in early stage talks to take the reigns of James Bond 24. According to the site, "It’s early days, but informal talks have begun between Nolan, his representatives and the powers behind the James Bond pictures, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson." However, as Interstellar has only just begun production, Nolan would be unable to begin work on a new 007 movie until 2015, meaning that the film more than likely wouldn't be released until 2017 at the earliest. By that time, star »
Damon Lindelof (Prometheus, Star Trek Into Darkness) has offered some advice to Warner Bros. about their planned Justice League movie, which will tie together their superhero properties of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, etc - just like Marvel did with The Avengers / Avengers Assemble.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lindelof was asked whether he would help WB solve their 'Justice League problem' if they called. He deflected the question with his superpower of Suggestion Shield...
"I think a lot of that depends on Man of Steel. The Justice League problem is not a problem of, who is the bad guy that Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, Superman, whoever you decide to pit them against. The problem is: What’s the tone of that movie? They’ve been struggling with launching their own tone. The tone of Green Lantern is very different from the tone of The Dark Knight. They »

I enjoy Damon Lindelof's work. I like that he's a geek like the rest of us that we can relate to, only he's on the inside and gets to tell fun stories and make really cool movies. That's one of the reasons why I respect his thoughts on things going on in the film business, and why I enjoy the things he works on.
As you know, Warner Bros. has had a very hard time bringing Justice League to the big screen. In fact, they've had a hard time adapting any of their DC characters (other than Batman) as a feature film. It looks like they might have gotten Superman right with Man of Steel, but that has yet to be seen.
During a recent interview with THR, Lindelof was asked how he would solve the "Justice League problem" if Warner Bros. reached out to him for help. This »
