23 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Interstellar and Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan was on hand at this year's Tribeca Film Festival for a conversation with Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller, and their chat covered a number of different topics -- from Nolan's first influences (Star Wars) to his massive success as a filmmaker (“I do attribute a lot of it to luck"). What else is going on inside the nerdy mind of the guy who gave us Inception and Memento? Here are three Christopher Nolan fun facts to break out at your next movie party 1. His favorite movie of 2014  “I really loved Whiplash last year. I thought that was an incredible piece of work. That was the kind of film where when you see it, it’s very precisely put together and you’re very...

Avengers: Age of Ultron movie review: mad science fiction

23 April 2015 5:17 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Not without problems, but continues the Avengers tradition of big, bold blockbusters that don’t need to toss away thoughtfulness to remain pure popcorn fun. I’m “biast” (pro): love the Marvel movies

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Sneaky superhero movie! It was another caped-crusader tradition that gave us the idea that heroes who don’t die in the line of duty live to become villains, but it took The Avengers to let it play out onscreen. The bad guys in Age of Ultron? Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. For real.

In Tony’s case, his villainy is externalized in Ultron, an AI creation that he has been working on for years but which he can finally bring to fruition now that the Avengers have reacquired Loki’s wondrous scepter from what’s left of Hydra (this is the »

Christopher Nolan's Favorite Scene In The Dark Knight Trilogy

22 April 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Christopher Nolan.s Dark Knight trilogy is a family of films full of incredible, memorable moments. Filmmakers are often very cagey when it comes to saying one scene or another is their favorite (like parents saying they love all their children equally), but Nolan recently revealed that he does in fact have a preferred scene from the saga, and it is indeed a doozy. Talking with Foxcatcher and Moneyball director Bennett Miller at the Tribeca Film Festival recently, as witnessed by Long Live Cinema, Nolan was asked what scene from his trio of Batman films is his favorite, and he wasted little time disclosing that it is that incredible scene where Bane (Tom Hardy) and his cronies hijack a plane in midair early in The Dark Knight Rises. That is definitely an intense scene in an intense movie, and one that was crazy complex to film as Nolan tried to »

The Big Short begins filming, cast officially announced

22 April 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paramount Pictures, New Regency and Plan B Entertainment have today announced the start of production on The Big Short, their A-list ensemble piece that is currently filming in New Orleans.

Anchorman 2 director Adam McKay is directing the film which stars Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Trilogy), Brad Pitt (Fury), Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) and Ryan Gosling (Drive), as well as newly announced additions Marisa Tomei (The Wrestler) and Melissa Leo (The Fighter).

McKay re-wrote the film from a previous script from Charles Randolph (Love and Other Drugs), which is based on bestselling non-fiction book The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis. The book tells the remarkable true story of the genius contrarian investors who, recognizing just how insane the housing bubble had become, figured out how to “short” the market prior to the financial collapse of 2008.

Christopher Nolan reveals his favorite sequence from his films

22 April 2015 3:37 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Last night during a talk at the Tribeca Film Festival (hosted by Foxcatcher and Capote director Bennett Miller), Christopher Nolan was asked what sequence from his movies is his favorite, and his answer may surprise you. I thought for sure it would be the opening bank scene from The Dark Knight or a sequence from Inception, but Nolan says his favorite is the airplane kidnapping scene from The Dark Knight Rises. The director went on to talk about shooting the sequence. It took us about two »

Emma Stone and Steve Carell to star in Battle of the Sexes

22 April 2015 2:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has reported that Fox Searchlight has set a start date on Battle of the Sexes, based on the gender-battle tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs.

Little Miss Sunshine directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris will helm the project, while Emma Stone (Birdman) and Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) are set to play King and Riggs respectively. Simon Beaufoy, Oscar winning screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire has written the script, which is being co-produced by Danny Boyle (127 Hours).

The race to get the film out first will be crucial, as two other rival projects are set to go into production this year as well: Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti are playing King and Riggs in a HBO and Playtone production, while Will Ferrell is still circling Match Maker, which is being co-produced by his own Gary Sanchez Productions.

The story of King and Riggs became a zeitgeist event back in 1973, when the 29-year old No. »

Jake Gyllenhaal, Guillermo Del Toro , Sienna Miller on 2015 Cannes Film Festival

21 April 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Xavier Dolan just can't stay away from the Cannes Film Festival.  Last year's Special Jury prize winner for "Mommy" thought he should have won the Palm d'Or and now he'll be part of the jury deciding that prestigious honor.  Oh, my. The Cannes Film Festival announced the Jury today which also includes Guillermo Del Toro, Jake Gyllenhaal Sienna Miller, Rossy de Palma, Sophie Marceau, Rokia Traore and Jury presidents Joel and Ethan Coen.  That's quite a Hollywood contingent for Cannes most important clique. Almost always political and rarely unanimous, the Cannes Jury was led by Jane Campion in 2014.  That group selected "Winter Sleep" as their Palm d'Or winner while many believed "Leviathan" or "Foxcatcher" deserved the honor.   The Festival also announced its Director's Fortnight selections this morning.  This is the section of the festival where "Blue Ruin" made its debut over the past few years.  There are usually often one »

‘The Big Short’ has a rather large cast of big name actors

21 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There’s nothing short about the list of big name actors in the cast for the upcoming movie by Anchorman helmer Adam McKay.

Deadline reported on Tuesday that Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, and Brad Pitt are set to join Melissa Leo and Marisa Tomei in McKay’s adaptation of Michael Lewis’ book, The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine. The book tells the story of the genius contrarian investors who, recognizing just how insane the housing bubble had become, figured out how to “short” the market prior to the financial collapse of 2008.

This is McKay’s first dive into large-scale drama after making a name for himself with comedy hits such as Anchorman, The Other Guys, and Step Brothers. He most recently worked with Marvel and Paul Rudd on the script for Ant-Man, which just released its second trailer, and is rumored to be on the shortlist »

Christopher Nolan on His Gradual Ascent: Young Filmmakers, Stop Rushing

21 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As an interview subject, Christopher Nolan is an expert diplomat: He’s great at sounding forthright while not saying anything particularly revealing. But, holding forth on his career in an hour-long conversation with Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller at the Tribeca Film Festival last night, the Dark Knight and Inception director did open up at a couple of points. Maybe it was the fact that he was talking shop with a fellow filmmaker, but Nolan seemed refreshingly reflective, particularly as he discussed some of the opportunities he’d been given in his career.“If there’s one thing that I’ve been fortunate in, in my development as a filmmaker, it’s that I’ve always worked at a comfortable scale,” Nolan said. “I started very very small [with the no-budget feature Following]. Then, after I had done Following … I was able to show people the script for Memento, and it had a similarly nonlinear structure. »

Emma Stone, Steve Carell Engage In Battle Of The Sexes

21 April 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Crazy, Stupid, Love, Match? Emma Stone and Steve Carell are attached to star in Fox Searchlight’s Battle of the Sexes, which will portray the famed match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Stone will play King, the No. 2 ranked female tennis player in 1973 when she, at 29, was challenged by and bested 55-year-old Wimbledon great Riggs (Carell), who came out of retirement for the match.

Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the team behind Little Miss Sunshine, will direct from a long-gestating script by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire). The scribe has been working with King on the screenplay (Riggs passed away in 1995), which is expected to be comedic but still address important political issues. Danny Boyle will produce.

This is one of three competing projects about the match between King and Riggs, though it’s currently predicted to be the first in front of cameras. HBO is working on an »

21 April 2015 8:09 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Cannes Film Festival has unveiled the jury for this year's festival and, as is typical for the world's most prestigious film fest, it is a mix of A-list stars and hot up-and-comers. Definitely in the first category are actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Sienna Miller, who together with Cannes jury presidents Joel and Ethan Coen form the American contingent on this year's jury. Gyllenhaal is red hot following his Golden Globe-nominated performance as a psychopathic L.A. crime reporter in Nightcrawler. The actor is no stranger to the festival, having appeared in David Fincher's Zodiac, which screened in Cannes in 2007. MIller strode the Cannes red carpet just last year for Bennett Miller's competition title Foxcatcher.

Christopher Nolan and Bennett Miller shared the stage in lower Manhattan Monday as the two directors participated in a Tribeca Film Festival discussion about the craft of filmmaking and working within the studio system. Miller ostensibly served as the interviewer, exploring the themes of Nolan's films and talking to the Interstellar director about how he got into filmmaking, what drives him, and the challenges of making movies for major studios and in the current economic climate. But the Foxcatcher director still shared a number of his own thought-provoking insights and a juicy story about how, while he was working

Christopher Nolan Says His Filmmaking Process a ‘Combination of Intuition and Geometry’

20 April 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Nolan described his filmmaking process as “some combination of intuition and geometry” in one of the Tribeca Talks series of public conversations at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

“I don’t write a story outline,” he told a packed house of festivalgoers during the discussion with fellow director Bennett Miller (“Foxcatcher,” “Moneyball”). “Usually my answer right off the bat is that I work intuitively, but I draw a lot of diagrams when I work. I do a lot of thinking about etchings by Escher, for instance. That frees me, finding a mathematical model or a scientific model. I’ll draw pictures and diagrams that illustrate the movement or the rhythm than I’m after.”

Intuition, he noted, comes to the fore in his editing process. “I’ve always edited in a huge hurry, tried to catch that lightning in a bottle, just so the energy is there,” he said. “I »

20 April 2015 6:15 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Director Bennett Miller went mano a mano with director Christopher Nolan Monday evening before a packed, film-crazy crowd at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center. Actually, the Tribeca Film Festival event was more bromance than smackdown, as Miller (Foxcatcher, Moneyball, Capote) played admiring interlocutor to the amiable Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, Memento). Their only prior work together had been in the area of keeping the use of film stock alive. After running… »
