You Might’ve Missed Michael Caine’s Role In Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’

26 July 2017 9:43 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Across six films — “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” “The Prestige,” “Inception” and “Interstellar” — Michael Caine has been a mainstay and some would say lucky charm for Christopher Nolan. Indeed, the director didn’t miss a chance to give his friend and regular collaborator a role in his seventh film “Dunkirk,” though you’ve might’ve missed it.

Christopher Nolan loves a good easter egg. Whether it’s a sly bit of casting, the use of subliminal imagery, or a line of dialogue with deeper implications then you may realize, Nolan often hides clues and secret messages in his films that are just waiting to be discovered. Of course the internet has devoted a ton of time searching for Nolan’s best easter eggs over the years, and we’ve rounded up 7 of the best hidden gems to look for in his filmography.

Stuck In Stories: The Films Of Christopher Nolan

21 July 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk arrives this weekend and it's arriving to predictably good reviews. His poorest reviewed film on Rotten Tomatoes is Interstellar at 71%. He has four films (including Dunkirk, so far) reviewed in the 90s. As a director, his movies have grossed more than $4 billion, making Nolan one of the most successful filmmakers of all time. His films are master classes in storytelling, and this is all the more impressive when one considers that, for the most part, he's making all of his films about the same thing.

Christopher Nolan is perhaps the purest of storytellers. All of his movies, over and over again, are stories about storytelling itself. Perhaps this arose when he was yet a boy, at an age somewhere between nine and twelve, when he decided that he wanted to make movies professionally. Perhaps this decision at such a young age is the reason that he »

'Dunkirk' Heading Toward $51M Debut, 'Girls Trip' Strong, 'Valerian' Sinks

20 July 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Saturday a.m. Update: With an estimated $19.8 million, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is heading toward an opening weekend right around $50 million to $52 million. It's a great start for the WWII feature, especially given the holds Nolan's films have shown in recent history as well as the critical response and now the "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, a notch above the "B+" audiences gave Interstellar. Additionally, Dunkirk has now been released in 46 international markets where it has so far grossed $21.2 million after releasing earlier this week in a handful of territories. We'll have more on the overall international performance with tomorrow morning's report. In second is Universal's release of Girls Trip, which is scorching the weekend, delivering an estimated $11.68 million on Friday, heading toward a $29+ million opening. The film should also show long legs looking ahead after receiving a rare "A+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. Finally, Stx's release of EuropaCorp's »

Review: Dunkirk

Plot: The evacuation of Dunkirk, from the perspective of the soldiers stranded on the beach, to the civilian fleet that evacuated them, and the Raf pilots in the air that tried to protect them. Review: Dunkirk may be Christopher Nolan’s most fully realized film to date, and that’s saying something.

The Preview Reel: Will Dunkirk Win the Week?

20 July 2017 7:41 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to this week’s “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide release movies. With Baby Driver opening three weeks ago, followed by Spider-Man: Homecoming, War for the Planet of the Apes just last week, and Dunkirk this week, we are unquestionably in the best stretch of this summer’s wide releases. Enjoy it, because August looks bleak. This is also a rare week where we don’t have a sequel or reboot opening as we have three intriguing “new” releases: Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic Dunkirk, Luc Besson’s space adventure Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and the R-rated comedy Girls Trip. There’s seemingly something for everybody this week.

Dunkirk

What we are excited about: Christopher Nolan is one of the most celebrated directors of the 21st century. With films like Memento, Inception, The Prestige, and of course the Dark Knight trilogy, »

Poll: What’s the Best Christopher Nolan Movie?

19 July 2017 12:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The reviews are in, and “Dunkirk” may be Christopher Nolan’s best movie yet.

Variety‘s awards editor Kristopher Tapley called the director’s latest “the first slam-dunk Oscar contender of 2017”; chief film critic Peter Debruge praised it as “a bravura virtual-eyewitness account from multiple perspectives — one that fragments and then craftily interweaves events as seen from land, sea and air.”

But Nolan has a long line of lauded films that came before “Dunkirk,” going back to 1998’s “Following.” A couple of years later came “Memento,” cementing a base of loyal fans who turn out to the box office to solve his cinematic puzzles.

With Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan has finally hit the heights of Kubrick

19 July 2017 6:43 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Any mention of the K-word in relation to Nolan has long prompted sneers, but his 10th film is dizzying, dazzling and diamond-hard. It could be his Paths of Glory

For quite a while now – at least since the release of Inception in 2010, Christopher Nolan has been regularly touted as the modern counterpart to the late, great Stanley Kubrick, whose dazzling accomplishments across multiple genres are generally held as the benchmark of American cinema. Back in 2010 those comparisons seemed absurd: how could the writer-director of classy-but-overthought superhero movies, as well as middling oddities such as The Prestige, be seriously thought of in the same bracket as the lambent mind behind Dr Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon?

Well, it probably helps that Nolan and Kubrick share a studio – Warner Bros – whose marketing department have been probably the most active in seeding the whispers of equivalency. Nolan »

Our favourite Christopher Nolan scenes in time for DunkirkOur favourite Christopher Nolan scenes in time for DunkirkAdriana Floridia7/18/2017 12:23:00 Pm

Christopher Nolan is a one-of-a-kind filmmaker whose legacy is undeniable.

This is the man responsible for an impeccable merging of genres that create magical and spell-binding human dramas, and he always leaves us with our jaws dropped.

Arguably the best superhero series ever is Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, where he took the most prolific hero of them all, Batman, and created a dark and sinister series that contains what many would consider the best film of its kind ever made, The Dark Knight. He is the master of making challenging cinema that still manages to have a blockbuster appeal, with films like Inception, The Prestige and Memento.

This week Nolan returns with his highly anticipated World War II film, Dunkirk. It's a big shift for the filmmaker, and early »

Dunkirk Review: A Thrilling Exercise In Storytelling & Filmmaking

18 July 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

For the past several years, filmmaker Christopher Nolan has been experimenting with some pretty big, outlandish ideas. If you take a look at the trend in his original films, The Prestige, Inception, and Interstellar, you can see a trend there that delves both inwards and outwards of the human psyche. For a man who’s tackled the deepest depths of the imagination, as well as the farthest reaches of outer space…where would he go next?

For his latest film, Dunkirk, Nolan has his most grounded subject matter yet in the form of a relatively obscure rescue mission that, to my knowledge, has received little to no screen time in decades past. However, if you were going into this hoping for something along the lines of Saving Private Ryan, Hacksaw Ridge, or even Apocalypse Now, you’ll be sorely disappointed. Dunkirk, it seems, was little more than a setting for »

Explore the origin of Wonder Woman with Professor Marston & The Wonder Women trailer

18 July 2017 8:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer has arrived online for writer-director Angela Robinson’s upcoming biopic Professor Marston & The Wonder Women which tell the story of Professor William Moulton Marston, creator of the iconic DC superheroine Wonder Woman, and the two women in his life; watch it below after the official synopsis…

In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her ‘sexual perversity’, he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research — while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises. »

‘Professor Marston & the Wonder Women’ Trailer: Annapurna Presents Wonder Woman’s Polyamorous Origin Story — Watch

18 July 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” gave us Diana Prince’s fabled origin story, there was no trace of the whips and chains she so often battled in early comic editions by original Wonder Woman scribe William Moulton Marston. Diana’s inventor was as eccentric as they come, living in sin with two women and harboring some radical views about dominance, submission, and monogamy. In “Professor Marston & the Wonder Women,” we get to see the saucy side of Wonder Woman in this sultry new biopic of Marston and his notorious love triangle.

‘Dunkirk’: Why Christopher Nolan’s War Epic Is a Certain Oscar Contender

18 July 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Christopher Nolan and the Oscars have a love-hate relationship. He’s been nominated for only three Oscars, two for Original Screenplay: “Memento” in 2000 and big-scale epic “Inception” in 2010. That year, he was also nominated as a producer of “Inception,” which followed the surprising omission of  “The Dark Knight” for Best Picture contention in 2009. That pushed the Academy to change its rules to allow more Best Picture slots, which might encourage more people around the world to watch the Oscars.

Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ Is the First Slam-Dunk Oscar Contender of 2017

17 July 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was shocking.

Warner Bros. had played all the right notes with “Inception.” A summer blockbuster that quickly took on a prestige sheen, Christopher Nolan’s mind-warping actioner was easily one of the year’s best films. With overwhelming critical, popular and industry approval, it was instantly set on a crash-course for a best picture Oscar nomination.

A director bid, meanwhile, seemed a foregone conclusion, particularly in the wake of Nolan’s 2008 “The Dark Knight,” which came up short in the major categories and, in part, led to the film Academy’s decision to expand the best picture field to better accommodate movies of its ilk. But “Inception” was a step above in this regard, bravura filmmaking, the kind of entertainment directors only dream of conjuring (no pun intended). Nolan was secure.

Then: the nominations. Not only was Nolan passed over for directing, but somehow, a film built on its structure and editorial prowess was ignored by »

Great Job, Internet!: Inception gets chillingly updated to be relevant in 2017

17 July 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Christopher Nolan’s new film Dunkirk comes out this week, which means it’s a fine time to look back at the director’s titanic filmography. While there are several through-lines to his work—byzantine plotting, masterful recurring actors, a relish for analog effects and the texture of film—it’s also surprisingly diverse, from the modern noir of his earliest works to the superhero trilogy that launched him into the stratosphere. His work in sci-fi—The Prestige and Inception—remains some of his most cerebral and puzzled-over, and perhaps no image in his oeuvre has captured filmgoers’ imaginations quite like the final one of Inception. Originally released in 2010, it’s a film strangely out of time, but it begs the question of how it might be tweaked to be relevant in 2017. Brave YouTuber Edward Usher has postulated an answer.

Really makes you think.

Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson Have A 70mm Film Support Group

14 July 2017 12:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dunkirk” is just one week away from opening in theaters nationwide, and it marks a big step in the career of Christopher Nolan. The director has experimented with using 70mm film for select scenes in his movies dating back to “The Prestige,” but the WWII drama is the first time he used 70mm film for the entire picture. That’s right: 100% of “Dunkirk” was filmed using 70mm film cameras, and 75% was shot using IMAX cameras.

Indie Film Invades the Emmys: Jean Marc-Vallée, Reed Morano and More Cinematic Voices Dominate

They say television is the new film, and that’s certainly true when you look at how many actors, directors, writers, cinematographers and more from the film world are counted among this year’s Emmy nominees. A majority of the biggest contenders, from “The Handmaid’s Tale” to “The Night Of,” “Big Little Lies” and “The Crown,” brought some of the best film talent to the small screen over the last year, and their work resulted in major recognition from the TV Academy.

Dunkirk Early Reactions: Nolan's WWII Thriller Is a Colossal Achievement

10 July 2017 4:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It sounds like Christopher Nolan has cemented his place as one of the best directors working today. After tackling Batman with The Dark Knight trilogy, making some great modern sci-fi movies with Inception and The Prestige and making some great thrillers in the form of Memento and Insomnia, he has finally made his war movie with Dunkirk. The movie has screened for critics and the first reactions are in, which praise it as an original, but possibly divisive WWII thriller.

Dunkirk is set to arrive in theaters on July 21 and marks Christopher Nolan's first directorial effort since the very ambitions Interstellar. With the release date fast approaching, Warner Bros. decided to start showing the movie to critics, and it sounds like most everyone loves it. Erik Davis, who serves as the managing editor over at Fandango, praised every aspect of Dunkirk from the relentless pacing to Hanz Zimmer's score. »

Castlevania Review: Episodes 2 And 3 - Enter Trevor Belmont

10 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Image Courtesy of Netflix.

Last Friday was the premier of Castlevania: Season 1 on Netflix.  The anime style series debuted to many antipated viewers.  I did a recap of the first episode last week, and have returned with episodes 2 and 3 (the entire season consists of 4 episodes).  Do the other episodes match the interest of the first?  Should this season warrent a second?  Read on to find out.

At the conclusion of episode 1, fans were briefly introduced to the last surviving member of the Belmont family, who looks to be the last of a disrespected family legacy.  Meanwhile, Dracula had given the town one year to leave until he returned for his revenge due to the church and town leaders burning his wife, Lisa, at the stake due to accusations of witchcraft.

Episode 2:

The Belmont family was an aristocratic family who had all the power in the area, who were excommunicated »
