Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ Begins Filming in France

23 May 2016 9:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Nolan has started shooting World War II action-thriller “Dunkirk” for Warner Bros. in Dunkirk, France — site of the massive 1940 military evacuation.

Dunkirk” will focus on the rescue through a quickly assembled British fleet of more than 800 boats, which saved more than 335,000 soldiers who had been cut off by the German Army. As the rescue was concluding, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill told Parliament, “We shall fight on beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender.”

Nolan is shooting “Dunkirk” from his own screenplay on a combination of Imax 65mm and 65mm large format film. “Dunkirk” hits theaters on July 21, 2017.

The cast includes Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy and Fionn Whitehead. The ensemble cast also includes Aneurin Barnard, Harry Styles, James D’Arcy, Jack Lowden and Barry Keoghan. »

Nolan Talks Challenging "Westworld" Series

27 April 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It has seemingly had a troubled gestation, but that's because HBO's "Westworld" is so much of a challenge says the show's executive producer and show runner Jonathan Nolan.

Nolan, no stranger to complicated lavish productions such as co-writing and producing many of his brother Chris Nolan's films like his "Dark Knight" trilogy and "Inception," has done a lengthy interview with io9 and says nothing he's done - not even the demanding schedule of a CBS procedural like "Person of Interest" which he created - quite compares to this series:

"Nothing that I have done prepared me for the sheer avalanche [of production requirements]. The truth is, what we're doing there is a 10-hour movie. It's not really a TV series. When they say 'It's not TV, it's HBO,' they're really not kidding.

We're doing a period Western, and a science fiction [movie]. Basically, we're shooting Alien, Days of Heaven and Unforgiven simultaneously, »

What Can We Expect From Dr. Strange in the McU?

23 April 2016 2:58 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With filming on Doctor Strange officially wrapped, and the first trailer having been released, we are finally starting to get a better picture of what we can expect from the film when it debuts this November. Cinelinx looks at what we know, what we hope for and what we expect from the movie debut of the master of the mystic arts, as played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Doctor Stephen Strange is one of Marvel Comics oldest characters, having been created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in Strange Tales # 110, back in July 1963. He was inspired by earlier magician characters like Mandrake and Chandu. His appearance was based on legendary horror film star Vincent Price. Dr. Strange has been a big part of many major Marvel storylines over the past 53 years. Stephen Strange is Marvel’s ‘Sorcerer Supreme’, also known as the master of the mystic arts.

Watch: Restore your love in movies, here’s short film ‘100 Years/100 Shots’

22 April 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Filmmaker and self-pronounced cinephile Jacob T. Swinney has a new video essay called 100 Years/100 Shots. The title’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s about the history of Tequila in the 21st century.

Swinney has chosen his most memorable shot from each year in the last 100 and placed them next to each other in chronological sequence. Not only does it fascinatingly chart the evolution of the medium, it also reaffirms why we devote so much of our spare time to the movies. See beneath the video embed below for the full list (in order) used.

'Doctor Strange' Screenwriter On Marvel, Nolan, And That Trailer

21 April 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

By now, we've all heard that Marvel Studios plans on going in new and strange directions with their slates for Phases 3 and 4. While they've been criticized for being somewhat safe for the last few years, Kevin Feige and the folks at Marvel look like they want to switch things up. The first big indication of that was the dark, humor-free, Inception-esque trailer for Doctor Strange. Now screenwriter C. Robert Carghill is letting the world know that the trailer was nothing compared to what the film is going to end up being. He also shed some light on exactly how far Marvel was willing to stray from its own beaten path.

On the teaser:

"This teaser is, it’s the definition of a teaser. You are only getting a like as mall taste of just how crazy this movie gets. We have only just the slightest hints of magic in there. »

The Quay Brothers In 35Mm screens this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (April 22nd. 23rd, and 24th) at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium (470 E. Lockwood, Webster Groves, Mo 63119). The program begins each evening at 7:30. 

Christopher Nolan has launched some of the most ambitious blockbusters of the past decade including Inception, Interstellar and his Batman trilogy. The filmmaker’s newest project has nothing to do with his own films. Screening this weekend at Webster University, The Quay Brothers In 35mm is a dazzling collection of experimental shorts from identical twin stop-motion animators Stephen and Timothy Quay. Curated by Nolan himself, and including his new eight-minute short film, Quay, the program finds Nolan using his international recognition to shine a spotlight on two of the most visionary animators working in cinema today.

The program consists of Nolan’s 8-minute documentary about the Quays and three shorts by the Brothers Quay:

Avatar, and the disappearance of James Cameron

15 April 2016 7:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




It’s 6 years since the release of Avatar, and still no sequel. Ryan considers the disappearance of a great mainstream filmmaker.

James Cameron was just 24 years old when he borrowed a small sum of money from a bunch of dentists and made his first film, Xenogenesis. Just 12 minutes long, the 1978 movie was a humble yet significant beginning for the young filmmaker.

The sci-fi short landed Cameron's first job in the film industry: devising practical effects for Roger Corman. Xenogenesis was the first proper collaboration between Cameron and Willliam Wisher, who’d later write the screenplay for Terminator 2. About a battle between man and giant killing machine, Xenogenesis contained numerous elements that Cameron would revisit in his subsequent movies. The giant killer robot looks uncannily like a Hunter Killer from The Terminator. Xenogenesis’s tough heroine bears more than a passing resemblance to one Ellen Ripley, whose fate »

Take A Hand In This Supercut Look At The Films Of Christopher Nolan

8 April 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The question of whether or not Christopher Nolan is in fact an auteur is one best saved for another day, in my opinion. What’s harder to deny is that the British director is working from a thematically consistent framework, employing a recognizable set of motifs in pretty much everything he’s made thus far. There’s urban unrest, for instance, in the last two “The Dark Knight” films, the corporeal contortion of time and space in both “Inception” and “Interstellar,” and Michael Caine in pretty much everything else. But do you know what else Mr. Nolan likes to shoot in his films? Hands. That’s right: “Hands of Nolan” is a new video essay courtesy of Vimeo’s Jorge Luengo Ruiz that takes a good look at Mr. Nolan’s frequent and often unremarked-upon focus on the human hand.

Cillian Murphy reteams with Christopher Nolan for Dunkirk

6 April 2016 12:47 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wrap is reporting that Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy is reteaming with director Christopher Nolan on his new film Dunkirk.

The new film written by Nolan tells the story of the World War II evacuation of Dunkirk during Operation Dynamo, which saved over 330,000 Allied soldiers from surrounding German forces.

Murphy previously worked with Nolan on The Dark Knight Trilogy, where he played Dr. Jonathan Crane aka The Scarecrow, and in 2010’s sci-fi action-thriller Inception. He joins fellow Nolan favourite Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), Kenneth Branagh (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) and Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies) as part of the supporting cast.

The casting of Nolan’s “lucky charm” Michael Caine shouldn’t be too far away.

Dunkirk stars newcomer Fionn Whitehead, War and Peace stars Aneurin Barnard and Jack Lowden and One Direction singer Harry Styles, and will be shot on both IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-formats. »
