Weekend Box Office Report: July 21-23, 2017

4 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Dunkirk commands the lead! Filmmaker Christopher Nolan's war effort Dunkirk was the top draw at the box office this weekend with an estimated opening of $50.5 million! That's a notch above the $47.5 million start of Nolan's previous movie Interstellar in November 2014. (Unsurprisingly, The Dark Knight Rises remains his best opening with $160.8 million -- still the tenth-biggest... Read More »

‘Dunkirk’ Battles To Top Spot, ‘Valerian’ Flops [Box Office]

7 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you had flagging faith that audiences would show up in numbers to a movie that wasn’t based on a comic book or brand, or a sequel, “Dunkirk” will restore your hope. It’s the first non-franchise film to win the weekend at the box office since March.

Christopher Nolan‘s nerve-jangling WWII movie battled its way to the top of the box office this weekend with an impressive $50.5 million. Outside of franchise films “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” it’s the director’s second best opening of his career behind “Inception.” It’s a feat made all the more remarkable considering there are no major stars in the film, Tom Hardy‘s face is mostly covered and his few words of dialogue are muddled for most of it, and where Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance arguably get the biggest emotional scenes.

What Sets Christopher Nolan Apart From Other Blockbuster Directors

10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of Dunkirk, Eric Bay-Andersen explores the aspects of Christopher Nolan’s films that set him apart from his contemporaries…

Over the past twenty years, Christopher Nolan has amassed a body of work so impressive that a new film by him is now an event in the cinematic calendar. But it’s not just the great performances or the jaw-dropping set pieces in his films that have won him such acclaim and respect in the industry – it’s his philosophy when it comes to making and marketing movies. In this article, I will suggest some of the reasons why I believe Christopher Nolan is a cut above most other blockbuster directors…

When I heard that Rian Johnson (writer/director of the brilliant Brick and Looper) had signed up to direct a Star Wars film I was very annoyed, because I knew it would be at least five years »

Is Ben Affleck Done Playing Batman After Justice League?

21 July 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Ben Affleck wasn't in the best Batman movie, but he still brought my favorite live-action portrayal of both the masked vigilante and his alter-ego, Bruce Wayne, to life. Affleck first took on the role in 2016's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and will be appearing in this fall's Justice League. Past that, Affleck was originally set to write, direct, and star in The Batman, the caped crusader's first solo adventure in the DC Extended Universe. Affleck has already dropped out of the director's chair, making way for Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes), who is also said to be reworking the script from scratch. But, Affleck will still play Batman in the character's first solo outing since The Dark Knight Rises, right?

Maybe not. The Hollywood Reporter says they have a source "with knowledge of the situation" who says that Warner Brothers and DC are working »

All 10 Christopher Nolan Movies Ranked, From ‘Memento’ to ‘Dunkirk’ (Photos)

21 July 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Director Christopher Nolan has become well-known for blasting audiences’ brains with mind-bending, over-the-top spectacles. His latest blockbuster, “Dunkirk,” is capturing critical acclaim — but how does it stack up to his other efforts? Here’s the definitive ranked list of Chris Nolan-directed movies. 10. “The Dark Knight Rises” That you can’t understand a damn thing Bane says is the least of this movie’s problems. It’s heavy themes of social politics and bleak ideologies of hope in the modern day are a drag for a superhero movie, and Nolan’s twists and parables strain credulity. 9. “Interstellar” On the trajectory »

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’ Soundtrack: Stream Hans Zimmer’s Most Intense Christopher Nolan Score Yet — Listen

21 July 2017 5:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Now that “Dunkirk” is out, so is its soundtrack. Hans Zimmer’s sixth collaboration with Christopher Nolan doesn’t come with a giant red button, but it does have the intensity of a ticking time bomb to match the film’s World War II drama. Listen to the soundtrack on Spotify here.

Christopher Nolan Endorses Tom Hardy for James Bond: ‘He’d Be Amazing’

20 July 2017 6:58 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Esteemed director Christopher Nolan thinks Tom Hardy is a perfect fit to play James Bond. Nolan discussed his three-time hire, in films “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Inception” and the WWII epic “Dunkirk,” which Warner Bros. will open on Friday. “He’d be amazing,” said Nolan of Hardy in the role last played by Daniel Craig. “He really would.” Also Read: Tom Hardy, Why Must You Cover Your Beautiful Face?

Tom Hardy, Why Must You Cover Your Beautiful Face?

19 July 2017 4:01 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tom Hardy, we get it. You are a diverse and serious talent, who can play a spy or a soldier, a lover or a relatable common criminal. But why must you cover your beautiful face? In Christopher Nolan’s latest, “Dunkirk,” Hardy’s face is covered by a pilot’s mask. We can forgive the one-time lapse, but it’s not one time at all.

Dunkirk movie review: the power of purpose

19 July 2017 2:32 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Primal and exhilarating, full of dread and tension. Drops us right into the chaos of war to tell an intimate story about fear and intensity of purpose. I’m “biast” (pro): love Christopher Nolan’s films

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

What are movies? They are not just mere stories, not simply dismissable entertainments, not even the lowest, basest ones. They are our mutual dreams… and nightmares. They howl with our rage and scream with our pain and ache with our hopes. The best of them touch us in ways we sometimes cannot even pinpoint, probably because what has percolated up from the filmmaker’s heart and soul and mind is an expression of that same collective unconscious that is waiting in us to be spoken to. We don’t always know why these films resonate, »

Box Office: ‘Dunkirk’ Battles ‘Girls Trip,’ While ‘Valerian’ Looks to Sputter

19 July 2017 2:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dunkirk” is ready for battle against a duo of 28th century special operatives, and a gaggle of wild women on a weekend getaway.

During a rare summer weekend that brings three non-sequel, non-franchise (at least … not yet) movies to theaters, Christopher Nolan’s latest looks to end up on top. The latest estimates put “Dunkirk” between $30 million and $35 million during its opening weekend. Those aren’t numbers that warrant a standing ovation — especially for a production with a speculated $150 million budget — but Warner Bros. is playing the long game.

Critics have come out in force for the World War II movie, earning it a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, and starting the awards season conversation early. After all, July is not a typical Oscar-bait date, but this weekend is the same one when Nolan released his biggest hits (“The Dark Knight” in 2008, “Inception” in 2010, and “The Dark Knight Rises” in 2012). It’s also almost 20 years after another World War »

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.

Dunkirk” is finally upon us after months of anticipation, and it’s clear the long wait has been worth it. IndieWire has named the WWII epic the best movie Christopher Nolan has ever made and a certain Oscar contender in the months ahead.

Christopher Nolan Says ‘Dunkirk’ Script Was Only 76 Pages, Reveals ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Connection

In case you hadn’t heard, “Dunkirk” heads into cinemas this weekend, and not only is it as good as you heard, you can expect it to be an Oscar player. As you might know, the film is a bit of a departure for Christopher Nolan, his shortest film since “Following,” and even more, it delivers white knuckle thrills without much in the way of dialogue.

‘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.

Wonder Woman’s Box Office Total Continues To Soar As Warner Preps Sequel Announcement For Sdcc

17 July 2017 9:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It may be the worst-kept secret in the industry, but it seems Warner Bros. is finally ready to pull back the curtain on Wonder Woman 2.

Word comes by way of The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Patty Jenkins’ standalone story is now on the verge of becoming Warner’s third highest-grossing release of all-time domestically. Currently simmering north of $380 million, Wonder Woman‘s box office total is now within touching distance of Deathly Hallows – Part 2 ($381 million), and will likely overtake David Yates’ final Harry Potter film – Fantastic Beasts notwithstanding – by the end of day. It’s an impressive feat by anyone’s standards, and another feather to add to Diana’s cap, even if the DC tentpole is set to fall far short of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight ($533.3 million) and The Dark Knight Rises ($448.1 million).

But make no mistake, the future is very, very bright for the studio’s Immortal Warrior, »

Box Office Milestone: 'Wonder Woman' Passes Final 'Harry Potter' Pic

Another day, another milestone for Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman.

Today, the superhero film will become the third-biggest Warner Bros. release of all time in North America — not accounting for inflation — leapfrogging the final Harry Potter film, 2011's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

Through Sunday, Wonder Woman's domestic total was $380.7 million, compared with $381 million for Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The studio's two top-grossing films domestically are Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight ($533.3 million) and The Dark Knight Rises ($448.1 million), again, not adjusting for inflation.

Christopher Nolan Likely Done With Superhero Films

14 July 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

In 2005, a little director named Christopher Nolan brought back the character of Batman in a big way with Batman Begins. Most recently, audiences had been subjected to the god-awful Batman and Robin, and mainstream viewers had all but dismissed the character as a big joke. However, with Batman Begins, Nolan proved that there were plenty of quality stories to tell with the character. A few years later, he brought the sequel, The Dark Knight, to the big screen, and took things to yet another level. Nolan brought things to a close with The Dark Knight Rises, marking the first legitimate conclusion I can think of to a superhero film series on the big screen.

In the time since then, Nolan’s renown has only grown. Original movies like Inception and Interstellar only cemented his place in cinema, proving that genre films can still be taken seriously. But what about superhero films? »
