Underrated Movie Performance: Rebecca Hall in “The Prestige”

When big names star in a movie it kind of overshadows those that put in just as great of a performance but aren’t as well known. Rebecca Hall in The Prestige performed a great role but was largely ignored due to the fact that Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, and even Scarlett Johansson were present. Scarlett didn’t even play that big of a role, whereas Rebecca was much more prevalent. But her confusing relationship with Bale’s character was only confounded by the fact that the big secret, the fact that Bale’s character had a twin that neither she nor Scarlett’s character

Watch ‘Westworld’ Panel at Tribeca Film Festival Awkwardly End Right After Cringeworthy Fan Question (Video)

Watch ‘Westworld’ Panel at Tribeca Film Festival Awkwardly End Right After Cringeworthy Fan Question (Video)
The “Westworld” panel at the Tribeca Film Festival took itself offline Thursday after its very first question from the audience.

The hit HBO sci-fi series’ slot at Tribeca’s 2018 gathering saw co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and cast members Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright and James Marsden, discuss the upcoming Season 2 with a moderator.

It was followed by a Q&A session that included exactly one question, which ended up being a fan’s request for Nolan — who co-wrote “The Prestige,” “The Dark Knight,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” and “Interstellar” with his brother, Christopher Nolan — to read his screenplay.

“We love the show and how it’s able to keep the audience captivated by, in a way, the human potential, but in the same regard, it’s pretty amazing to see how you are able to have a certain idea and to be able to put it on screen for us to be able to see where your mind is. And it’s an unbelievable thing for us to see it and understand it,” the audience member said. “We love the show. We can’t wait to see what the rest of the season has in store for us. And just a side thing for Jonathan — first of all, the cast, every single one of you is amazing. But for Jonathan, especially, my brother and I right here, we’re huge fans of ‘Interstellar.’ If anybody else is as well? I think a lot of us are. You wrote that, and we’re actually aspiring screenwriters as well and that inspired us a lot. And you’ve touched something within us and we hope that one day we can actually show our screenplay to you.”

Nolan thanked him before the fan could continue, and then the moderator said it was getting late and shut that thing down.

While it’s obvious that the majority of the room was not thrilled that was the only query the group answered before things wrapped up —- as they audibly groaned in unison in the video — the festival said the panel didn’t end because of the nature of the question.

“The moderator portion of the panel ran long and we had time for one question during the Q&A and that was the question,” Tribeca’s Executive Vice President of of Communications & Programming Tammie Rosen told TheWrap Friday.

Watch the clip below. The awkward part starts around the 50:00 mark.

‘Westworld’ Audience Q&A Ends Abruptly After Fan Asks to Share Script With Jonathan Nolan — Watch
Updated below. Anyone who has attended a film festival and sat through a post-screening audience Q&A knows that fan questions can been hit or miss. The audience at the “Westworld” Season 2 event at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival on April 20 learned this fact the hard way after the audience Q&A session ended abruptly after only one question.

The first fan chosen to ask the “Westworld” panel a question was a male who proceeded to use his time with the microphone not to ask a question but to tell co-creator Jonathan Nolan that he one day hopes to get a screenplay in front of him. Nolan co-wrote the films “The Prestige,” “The Dark Knight,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” and “Interstellar” with his brother, Christopher Nolan.

“We love the show and how it’s able to keep the audience captivated,” the audience member said. “We love this show. We can’t

2018 Oscars: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ would be the first cinematography champ to defeat a Best Picture-nominated film in 12 years

After wins this weekend at the American Society of Cinematographers and BAFTA, “Blade Runner 2049” appears to be well-positioned for the Oscars. Nothing is a sure thing with hard-luck 13-time loser Roger Deakins, but if he pulls this out, this would be the first time in 12 years that a non-Best Picture nominee beat a Best Picture nominee for Best Cinematography.

The last film to do this was “Memoirs of a Geisha” (2005), which edged out Best Picture nominees “Brokeback Mountain” and “Good Night, and Good Luck,” and non-Best Picture contenders “Batman Begins” and “The New World.” The following year’s Best Cinematography field was comprised entirely of non-Best Picture nominees — “Pan’s Labyrinth” beat “The Black Dahlia,” “Children of Men,” “The Illusionist” and “The Prestige” — so that is the last time a non-Best Picture nominee won the category. Since then, every cinematography champ has vied for the top award.

Ethan Hawke to Play Nikola Tesla in Biopic

Ethan Hawke has been tapped to play the part of Nikola Tesla in a new biopic about the Serbia-born inventor that created such a buzz during his lifetime. If you’ve watched The Current War or The Prestige you’ll have likely seen Nicholas Hoult and the late David Bowie play their own versions of Tesla as well. While each man was convincing and played the part with a very dignified air that spoke highly of the real life character it remains to be seen if Hawke can do this same. He’s a well-established actor after all and has been seen in

Ethan Hawke Is Nikola Tesla in New Biopic

A proper Tesla movie is on the way with Ethan Hawke on board to play the famed inventor. The movie is being pitched by Millenium Media to buyers at the European Film Market, which kicks off this week in Berlin, Germany. The creative team is in place and, assuming Millenium can generate interest in the project at the event, we're going to see a true biopic about Nikola Tesla in the not-too-distant future. Though, this is far from the first time that the Serbian-American figure has been portrayed on screen in recent years.

Most recently, Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men: Days of Future Post) played Nikola Tesla in The Current War, which was released last year but didn't make much of an impact. The movie features Benedict Cumberbatch as Thomas Edison and Michael Shannon as George Westinghouse and documents the war that determined who's electrical system would power the future.

Ethan Hawke is Set to Play Nikola Tesla in Upcoming Biopic

There's a such a fascinating and tragic history behind the life of electricity pioneer and inventor Nikola Tesla. I've been fascinated with this guy since I first learned about him sometime during my teen years. It seems crazy that there hasn't been a proper film made about this man, but it seems like that's all going to change with the biopic Tesla.

According to THR, Ethan Hawke is set to take on the role of Tesla and I think he's a solid choice. Tesla has previously been played by Nicholas Hoult (The Current War) and David Bowie (The Prestige).

The film will be written directed by Michael Almereyda, who previously worked with Hawke on the films Hamlet and Cymbeline. He also worked on the 2017 sci-fi film Marjorie Prime.

The film is sais to "chronicle the life and times of the famed Serbia-born inventor, including his creation of the AC motor

Ethan Hawke to play Nikola Tesla in biopic

Tony Sokol Feb 13, 2018

Nikola Tesla put the AC into DC and Ethan Hawke will put a man behind the science in upcoming biopic Tesla.

Real-life scientist Nikola Tesla was best known as Thomas Edison’s main rival, developing alternating current (AC) electricity to Edison’s direct current. But he was also a master showman. Ethan Hawke will be playing the Serbian-American inventor in an upcoming biopic Tesla, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tesla was an electrical and mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist. He was played by David Bowie in the film The Prestige and Nicholas Hoult in The Current War.

Tesla will be written and directed by Michael Almereyda (Marjorie Prime, Experimenter, Escapes), who worked with Hawke on the films Hamlet and Cymbelie.

The film will follow Tesla’s life and career, from the invention of the AC motor, through his relationship with J.P. Morgan’s daughter, Anne. Both

Christopher Nolan greatest films: All 9 movies ranked worst to best include ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘The Dark Knight,’ ‘Inception’
One of the most anticipated films of 2017 was Christopher Nolan‘s “Dunkirk,” a World War II epic that is nothing like others that the acclaimed auteur has ever attempted before. With a cast that included Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy and One Direction’s Harry Styles, “Dunkirk” received glowing notices from many American film critics, placing it squarely in the race for the 2018 Oscars.

Nolan has previously been nominated for three Academy Awards — Original Screenplay for “Memento” (2001); Best Picture and Original Screenplay for “Inception” (2010). None of the Oscar bids have been for directing, though, until his 2018 effort for “Dunkirk.” He has also received many other nominations: four Golden Globe Awards, three Directors Guild Awards, and two Writers Guild Awards, winning once for writing “Inception.” This film “Dunkirk” being an all-stops-out WWII epic

Honesty: the magic trick at the heart of The Prestige

Guy Buckland Jan 26, 2018

With spoilers, a few thoughts on Christopher Nolan's underrated The Prestige, and the trick within it...

It goes without saying, but The Prestige is very much spoiled in this article for those that have yet to sample its delights.

An early effort from writer/director Christopher Nolan, and – dare I say – a criminally under-appreciated one, The Prestige is a film that richly rewards multiple re-watches.

Unfairly thought of by some at the time as a stylish ‘twist’ movie in the vein of early Shyamalan, such a description does the film a great disservice. For while there are certainly mysteries to unwrap upon first viewing, watching through it again armed with foreknowledge does so much more than tickle the 'oh, so that’s why so-and-so did such-and-such' part of your brain. In fact, you could argue that you only truly understand the characters, their motivations and the emotional journeys they take,

10+ Years Later: The Prestige, Christopher Nolan's Most Knotty Work

"In my travels, I have seen the future... And it is a strange future indeed. The world, ladies and gentleman, is on the brink of new, terrifying possibilities." This is how Robert Angier, introduces his magic act, 'The Real Transported Man' - by cloaking it in the guise of science. Later, it is revealed that he is actually obfuscating science in the semblance of a stage illusion and yet is also hiding it in plain sight (note the use of the word ‘real’). Devotion to ones endeavours is at the core of The Prestige, Christopher Nolan’s densest, most delightful film, and unpacking its many themes, a just past the decade mark of its release (it was released in the fall of 2006 sandwiched in...

The Dark Knight returning to theaters for 10th anniversary

2018 marks the tenth anniversary of Christopher Nolan’s masterpiece The Dark Knight, and Showcase Cinemas has announced that it will celebrate the occasion by giving fans in the north east of the United States the opportunity to revisit the middle chapter of The Dark Knight Trilogy on the big screen.

On February 8th and 11th, Showcase will screen the film, which is widely regarded to be one of – if not the – greatest comic book movie of all time, and sees Christian Bale’s Batman going up against The Joker, played of course by the late Heath Ledger in an Oscar-winning turn.

Meanwhile, home theater fans will also be able to pick up The Dark Knight in glorious 4K later this year, as Warner Bros. releases the full Dark Knight Trilogy – along with Dunkirk, Inception, Interstellar and The Prestige – in the Ultra HD format.

Christian Bale on ‘Terminator Salvation’: “I’ve Got Enormous Regrets”

Christian Bale is perhaps one of this generation’s best actors. Pretty much every project that attaches Bale immediately adds a certain level of quality. For most of the actor’s career this has remained true, spite for a few misfires here or there. Although it’s been nearly ten years since it’s release in 2009, ‘Terminator: Salvation‘ remains a black mark on what is an illustrious career up to this point. Although it is certainly not a terrible performance by any means, there is a great feeling that Bale is simply miscast in the role of John Connor.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the McG (The Babysitter) directed film for what it is, but perhaps the most memorable thing about ‘Terminator: Salvation‘ is Christian Bale’s epic rant that infamously leaked from the set of the film. But in a recent interview with Happy Sad Confused Podcast
