In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

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. »

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 »

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. »

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 »

The Dark Knight (2008) reunites director Christopher Nolan ("The Prestige") with star Christian Bale ("Empire of the Sun"), who returns to continue Batman’s war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as the Joker (Heath Ledger), who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces the Dark Knight ever closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante. The Dark Knight (2008) was directed by Christopher Nolan, from a script written by Jonathan Nolan, David S. Goyer and of course Christopher Nolan himself. The film starred: Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Heath Ledger as Joker, Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, Michael Caine as Alfred, Maggie Gyllenhaal as Rachel, Gary Oldman as Gordon, »
Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn. In this case, The Joker (portrayed by Heath Ledger) just wanted to watch Lau (portrayed by Chin Han) burn. We last saw Lau sitting on top of the money. He had on a straitjacket and several times The Joker taunts him while he chats with The Chechen (portrayed by Ritchie Coster). Below, is an unused shot from Chris Nolan's masterpiece, The Dark Knight. It depicts Lau's fiery off-screen death.

We’ve heard this was shown at Sdcc on Nolan’s first visit to Comic Con and now it’s here for everyone, it looks like another perfect addition to his truly impressive work so far. Interstellar focuses around a team of explorers who use the discovery of a wormhole to go beyond what humans have achieved so far in space, thus stripping away the limitations that we’ve known for all the years so far.
Nolan obviously has his Batman universe in his filmography but he’s also got such tremendous films as Insomnia, The Prestige, Memento and Inception and this new one will surely be his masterpiece – I’ve got so much hope for it!

We don't officially have a category for "swag", but this falls into that classification. As a big space nerd and sci-fi lover, I can't help but share this nifty bit of swag from Comic-Con that I picked up today. During the Paramount panel yesterday, where they surprised fans in Hall H by bringing out Interstellar director Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey (read our full recap of that panel), the studio handed out tickets to be redeemed for a "prize". That prize? The mission patch from Interstellar, for the "Endurance" Space Exploration mission. It's small piece of swag, it's nerdy, but it's also kind of awesome. In full below. Here's the mission patch that was handed as a prize for those who were at Paramount's Comic-Con panel. Recap our coverage of Interstellar at Comic-Con here, including quotes from Nolan and McConaughey. Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, »

Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood will star in the pilot episode of Westworld, based on the 1973 movie starring Yul Brynner, Richard Benjamin and James Brolin. J.J. Abrams and Jonah Nolan are serving as executive producers for the proposed HBO series. Nolan, who has cowritten The Prestige, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Interstellar with his brother, director Christopher Nolan, also created the successful TV show Person of Interest. He has written the script for the Westworld pilot with his wife, Lisa Joy, herself a TV veteran (Pushing Daisies, Burn Notice) and will direct the episode. Novelist Michael Crichton made his feature film debut as a writer and director with the original movie, which was set in an elaborate theme park for adults that featured three...

Everyone has a theory about Christopher Nolan’s “Inception,” from libertarians who find Plato’s Cave/Ayn Rand-like levels of reality in the film, to fan sites dedicated to dense theories, and blogs dedicated the film’s moral evolution. One prevailing theory (Spoiler) calls Cobb’s spinning top a red herring, and that we should turn our attention to Cobb’s ring. The theory goes: Cobb is dreaming when you see him wear the ring, and you know he’s awake when he isn’t wearing it. The theory’s falsifiable and it’s simple enough to stick (it’s Cracked’s number one fan film theory). Darren Foley is picking up the theory and is running for a touchdown, having transformed the ring-totem theory into a new paradigm for understanding “Inception.” Foley also explores Nolan’s use of film titles to introduce important concepts in the story.

By 2009, the new version of Doctor Who had become not only an integral part of Saturday night television and a huge Christmas ratings winner but also an international success all over again. David Tennant, who had played the Time Lord since 2005 and was, arguably, more popular than any Doctor since the mighty Tom Baker hung up his scarf in 1981, had announced his resignation from the part he loved in October 2008. Many wondered how the incoming showrunner, Steven Moffat, would follow Tennant and what kind of show would emerge.
Tennant spent much of 2009 on stage in Hamlet and was only able to devote small amounts of time to Doctor Who. Occasional specials »
For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at an A-list actor who also happens to be a superhero as well, and that would be Hugh Jackman. Not only is he one of the bigger action stars on the planet right now due to his many turns as Wolverine in various X-Men movies, he’s also a talented song and dance man as well as an underrated dramatic actor. He’s even hosted the Oscars, which is nothing to sneeze at. There’s very little that Jackman can’t do, which makes him very deserving of a spotlight today right here on the site. For me, his best films often are his more dramatic ones. From The Fountain (one of my all time five favorite films) to Les Miserables (even if that movie isn’t particularly good, at least in my eyes) to The Prestige, and last year’s Prisoners, »

We all love a good, intelligent movie: who hasn’t been charmed by the intricately-plotted twists of Fight Club or The Usual Suspects, or been bowled over by the mind-melting array of thrillers that Christopher Nolan has brought us over the years (Memento, The Prestige, Inception)?
However, making a clever movie for attentive audiences isn’t easy, and if a movie’s reach exceeds its grasp, or it ends up talking down to audiences, viewers are certainly going to be vocal about it.
Not all of these 10 movies are bad, and in fact, several of them are pretty good, but they clearly mistook confusing storytelling, muddled moral messages, absurd twists and ropey internal logic for intelligent filmmaking.
Though some viewers will continue to profess these movies to be intelligent, a deeper probing of the issues at hand reveals them to be ambitious failures, or simply entertaining films that »

Today, Paramount premiered the first full trailer for "Interstellar," Christopher Nolan's first film since 2012's "The Dark Knight Rises," and his first since 2010's "Inception" not to involve caped crusaders. The film, which opens November 7, involves a father (Matthew McConaughey) who embarks on a space mission to save mankind. But will Nolan's latest sci-fi film have any more luck at the Oscars than his earlier efforts? -Break- Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, iTunes and YouTube Nolan's films have had some success with the academy. His breakthrough, "Memento" (2001), earned him and his brother Jonathan Nolan an Oscar nod for Best Original Screenplay, which they lost to Julian Fellowes for "Gosford Park." Nolan's later films "Batman Begins" (2005) and "The Prestige" (2006) earned bids in craft categories. »
If someone gushing about Christopher Nolan isn't your thing, skip everything below and just watch the trailer. Have a nice day. Still with us? Good. When it comes to big budget movies, there's Christopher Nolan and there's everyone else. The guy is working on a whole different level. In a summer in which I've seen the second Captain America movie (third if you count The Avengers), the umpteenth (albeit awesome) Godzilla movie, the fifth Spider-man movie, and countless other reboots and remakes, this trailer is like a breath of fresh air. Christopher Nolan seems to be going big with a completely original story idea that tackles the vastness of space itself while telling a very personal story of a guy and his family. There are some directors, you just hear that they're working on a new project and your ticket is instantly purchased, sight unseen. After his Dark Knight movies, »
