6 Drastic Ways Christian Bale Changed His Look For A Role
We got to thinking about the roles that required Bale to alter his appearance. Sometimes it’s a hairstyle. Sometimes it’s a lack of hygiene. Often it has to do with his body build, either bulking up to fight crime, or slimming down to deal with the consequences of his action.

Watching Christian Bale And Casey Affleck At Work On The Set Of Out Of The Furnace
Braddock now stands alongside Detroit and Gary, Indiana and any number of other Rust Belt towns as a symbol of America's lost industrial might. We've seen the pictures of rusted-out factories and crumbling towns; what Cooper wanted to bring to Braddock was a story, about what happens when the world collapses around you but also how a community moves on together

Christian Bale Shares The Batman Advice He Gave Ben Affleck
Over the course of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, Christian Bale's take on the caped crusader defined the character of Batman for many a moviegoer worldwide.

Out Of The Furnace's Second Trailer Reveals Its More Thrilling Side
Among fall movies there's the ones aiming for Oscars, the ones aiming for big audiences, and then every once in a while some that fall in the middle. We had pegged Out of the Furnace as pure prestige, coming from the writer and director of Crazy Heart and starring a laundry list of Oscar nominees and winners, from Christian Bale to Forest Whitaker

Watch Christian Bale Audition For Batman Begins In Val Kilmer's Batsuit
Over the years we've seen many different actors put on the Batsuit and become Batman for a live-action feature, from Adam West to Michael Keaton to George Clooney, but few have done the classic comic book superhero justice quite like Christian Bale. Not only was his performance in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy considered by many to be the best on-screen portrayal of the character...

David O. Russell's American Hustle Debuts What Might Be History's Most Expensive Trailer
This fall will apparently be the time to see very famous people doing very bad, very corrupt things while looking very attractive while they do it. We've still barely recovered from the crazy Wolf of Wall Street trailer, and now here comes the first trailer for American Hustle, the next film from The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell.

First Look At Christian Bale's Post-Batman Role In Out Of The Furnace
Directed by Crazy Heart's Scott Cooper and shot on location in the depressed former steel town of Braddock, Pennsylvania, Out of the Furnace aims to capture some of the blue-collar grit of the film that earned Bale his Oscar, The Fighter, but with its own rough and tumble criminal twist. In the first-look article in USA Today, which included the image of Bale you see above

How Christopher Nolan's Batman Could Still Be Part Of Justice League
It's been clear since the final moments of The Dark Knight Rises that Bale's Bruce Wayne was done with Gotham and super heroics in general, and though Man of Steel made reference to Wayne Industries, it had no explicit ties to Nolan's version of the Dark Knight. Henry Cavill is a new Superman, so he was getting a new Batman in the future… right?

Christian Bale Won't Be Justice League's Batman
“We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three," Bale told the site. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy. Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time. And we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying ‘We’re about to make the third.’ We never really knew if we were going to get to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well.”

Kanye West's Yeezus Promo Video Mimicks American Psycho... Badly
So in this video, the scene is played almost shot for shot, only with Kourtney Kardashian’s incredibly annoying boyfriend Scott Disick, no stranger to pretending to be Bateman, replaces a Huey Lewis obsession for one favoring West.

Ridley Scott Wants Christian Bale To Play Moses
Scott is looking to make this his next project after the star-studded The Counselor, which comes to theaters this fall, and he and the studio seem especially eager now that Steve Zaillian, the writer behind American Gangster and Moneyball, has come on board for a rewrite. Talks with Bale are early, according to Variety, but given that he's just about to jump into David O. Russell's political corruption movie, he would have to wait a while before filming on Exodus could begin

Christopher Nolan In, Christian Bale Out In Latest Justice League Rumors
Gossipy high schoolers probably don't have as many rumors floating around them as DC’s upcoming (or is it?) Justice League movie does. This film has already in theory mingled with more actors and directors than most of Warner Bros. yearly output. So let’s take a look at the most recent facts and fictions

Why Christian Bale's Batman Absolutely Needs To Be In Man Of Steel
DC and Warner need that moment. It instantly would shift a modicum of momentum back into JLA’s favor, proving that the powers behind the massively successful Dark Knight trilogy were on board with what until now is only a speculative Justice League movie. The project, for the first time, would feel real.

Christopher Nolan Taking Over Justice League, And Bringing Bale Back As Batman?
We've gotten really worried about the Justice League movie lately, with news that Warner Bros. had thrown out Will Beall's script for the film, and a lot of us worried the movie-- like George Miller's attempt years ago-- would fall apart entirely. But of course, Justice League carries enormous potential for the studio, their version of the massively successful The Avengers, and they're not going to give up that fast. Especially if they've got an ace up their sleeve to make it happen with aplomb

Christian Bale To Challenge Tom Hardy With His Own Mount Everest Movie
Whatever it is that drives Bale to act, part of it includes self-punishment-- and he's aiming to do it again in another movie based on a true story, this time set atop Mount Everest. Remember Jon Krakauer's ubiquitous book Into Thin Air? According to Deadline the story behind it will soon become a movie, with Bale now in talks to star

Tom Hardy Tops List Of 2012's Biggest Movie Stars
Hardy has steadily ascended up the ranks thanks to films like Inception and Warrior. And yes, he played Bane in Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. But his other two films from 2012 -- Lawless and This Means War -- were largely overlooked, so I’m a little shocked to see him leading the chart.

Christian Bale Could Also Join Wally Pfister's Transcendence
Christian Bale has worked with Christopher Nolan four times in the last decade, on three Batman movies and The Prestige, and every time Wally Pfister has been right there with them. Pfister has been Nolan's go-to cinematographer since Memento, and surely Pfister and Bale have had plenty of time to bond on their own over the course of shooting four giant movies

Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner & Amy Adams All Confirmed For David O. Russell's Next
Over the weekend I caught up with Silver Linings Playbook, the new film from director David O. Russell that's been earning buckets of Oscar buzz ever since it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September and ran away with the Audience Award. It's hard to go into a movie with that much hype, but it really earns it

Christian Bale Could Lead Todd Fields' Creed Of Violence
An adaptation of Boston Teran's novel The Creed of Violence, the story is set around the border of Mexico and the United States in 1910, when the former was on the verge of bloody revolution. Ever the opportunist, career criminal Rawbone looks to profit through arms dealing.

Jeremy Renner Replacing Christian Bale In David O. Russell's Upcoming Drama
Christian Bale was doing quite fine career-wise before starring in The Fighter, but what he created with David O. Russell was the performance of a lifetime. Playing former boxer/crack addict Dicky Eklund, Bale dropped 30 pounds and completely disappeared into the character to the point that you actually have to remind yourself that you're watching the same actor who plays Batman.

Christian Bale, Casey Affleck And Zoe Saldana Confirmed For Out Of The Furnace
Originally titled The Low Dweller and penned by insurance salesman-turned-screenwriter Brad Ingelsby, Out of the Furnace has since been polished by Cooper, who showed his capability to craft compelling characters with Crazy Heart. Here, Bale will star as Russell Baze, a tough customer who tries to forge a path for himself and his younger brother Rodney (Affleck) in the poverty-stricken Rust Belt.

Christian Bale And David O. Russell May Reunite On American Bullshit
With his stint as Batman complete, Bale pretty much has the world at his feet, and a reunion with the director who helped guide him to his first Oscar can't be anything but a good move. Even if we don't know anything about American Bullshit right now, or if Russell will ever make it, it seems worth looking forward to
