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, »

"We're not meant to save the world. We're meant to leave it." If you caught Godzilla last night, or you're heading out this weekend to see the King of Monsters on the big screen, then you might have already caught the spectacular theatrical trailer for Christopher Nolan's latest film Interstellar. Now the trailer is available online for you to watch over and over again, and it's truly a stunning tease of the film. This is only adding to our great anticipation to see the film this fall. Could we be looking at another Oscar nomination for Matthew McConaughey and a potential Best Picture contender? Only time will tell. Watch below! Here's the full trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar from Warner Bros. Pictures: You can also listen to the gorgeous music from the trailer right here: Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, Following, »

Any new Christopher Nolan movie is worth celebrating. If the director of "Memento," "The Prestige," and the Dark Knight trilogy wanted to make a film about a painted fence slowly drying, I'd probably be the first in line, wearing a thematically appropriate T-shirt. And Nolan seems to be the best, the most unencumbered, when he's working on original material, like the genuinely mind-blowing "Inception," a movie so trippy and odd that you practically floated out of the theater.
Well, King Nolan is back, with "Interstellar," a tale of deep space exploration, the time space continuum, and the velvety softness of Matthew McConaughey's voice. While the teaser was intriguing, it didn't offer much in the way of actual plot details (or even of conveying a mood or tone); this new trailer does, and then some. It's a brilliant little jewel in its own right, equal parts mind-blowing adventure and heartbreaking family drama, »

20 Musicians That Actually Turned into Incredible Actors David Bowie, Mandy Moore, Jack White — performances of a lifetime. by Marshall Yarbrough There’s an odd cognitive dissonance that takes place when musicians make the jump to the silver screen. Sometimes you’re properly forewarned, and there’s only a momentary lapse before you suspend disbelief — oh yeah, I heard so-and-so was in this. It’s more jarring when the appearance comes as a surprise, when the '60s chanteuse seems to pop up on your Netflix as if magically transported from your friend’s big sister’s record collection. Here are the films that best capture that strange moment when you see your favorite pop star in a film. David Bowie in The Prestige Granted, most of our childhood nightmares featured Bowie’s feathered hair and mammoth crotch bulge stalking Jennifer Connelly in Labyrinth. Here, portraying Croatian inventor Nikola Tesla (as »

There’s nothing worse than a bad fake accent, especially when it distracts the audience from the story that’s being told. That being said, there’s nothing more impressive than learning an actor is hiding their natural voice, and doing it flawlessly. This is no easy task, but the actors listed below are just a few of those who pull it off without effort. Hugh Laurie In his most famous role as Dr. Gregory House on “House M.D.,” Hugh Laurie hid his British accent for eight seasons. His memorable performance, along with his spot-on American accent, earned him two Golden Globe awards for best actor in a drama series, followed by four consecutive nominations in the same category, and six Emmy nominations. Christian Bale Christian Bale seldom acts using his natural British accent, instead opting for characters like “American Hustle’s” Irving Rosenfeld and Bruce Wayne (aka Batman). However, »
In just over a week, the second official trailer for Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated sci-fi drama Interstellar will arrive with Warner Bros. and Legendary's release of Godzilla. The first teaser poster just debuted with the provoking tagline of, "Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here." And now we have the first official still from the film featuring Matthew McConaughey holding a model of the lunar lander used to leave our mark on the moon. In the foreground are co-stars Timothée Chalamet and Mackenzie Foy. We can't imagine how much the online world will be buzzing after this new trailer hits. Here's the first photo from Christopher Nolan's Interstellar from EW's iPad edition (via IMDb): 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. »

If you're reading this, Hugh Jackman, just stop.
Stop being so darn charming. In this video from Yahoo UK, Hugh Jackman interviews himself in 1999, right before the first "X-Men" came out, to chat about their future. Strangely enough, '90s Jackman looks almost exactly like today's Hugh Jackman, except there's a Furbie and several lava lamps nearby. Honestly, though, has Jackman aged at all? Does he has a portrait of himself in an attic somewhere that's developing a beer gut and going grey? Come on.
What's funny about this "interview" is that, first of all, it's really hard to do a cool, interesting video interview these days. Second, we all like to think of Hugh Jackman as a down-to-earth guy who always seems a bit surprised as his insane success. It's funny to see him sardonically toot his own horn.
