BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Before Christian Bale donned the black cape and mask to become Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight, there were a bevy of actors up for the role. Josh Hartnett was apparently also in the mix, but unlike the other candidates, he made the fatal error of turning down the now iconic part.
The Fighter's story is far from over, and producer Todd Lieberman has some words on the status of the second film's production. Read on to discover how close we are to another round with Mickey Ward.
Like the Bret Easton Ellis book that it’s based on, the ending of Mary Harron’s American Psycho is rather ambiguous, and has been a source of debate amongst fans for a long time. The narrative takes some rather sharp turns as it builds up to its conclusion, and in the end leaves the audience questioning exactly how much of the story actually transpired.
Bruce Wayne leads a double life. By day, he’s a well-respected billionaire playboy who heads up Wayne Enterprises and attends lavish parties with ballerinas as his dates. At night, the mask goes on and he dives into a world of depraved acts and his “playroom” full of bits and bobs that would make Anastasia Steele blush. And, no, we’re not talking about him being the Caped Crusader.
What do you believe? Is there a deeper twist at the end of The Prestige that we aren’t seeing? Or did Christopher Nolan leave his cards on the table this time, for all to see?
It's always exciting when large-scale ensemble dramas are announced. These projects open up special doors that allow some of the best actors in the industry to work with and bounce off other like none other, and it's fun to watch and see just how many A-listers can be packaged into one feature.
Adam McKay is making a big move directing The Big Short as his next film, making the jump from goofy comedies like Anchorman and Step Brothers to serious drama. It should be an interesting journey for him as a filmmaker, but it will be an adventure that sees him working with an outstanding cast.
The irony of this situation has to be that Sir Ridley Scott rarely edits his films just once. This is a man who has at least five versions of his masterpiece, Blade Runner. And he has gone on record to say that his initial cut of Exodus ran four hours long.
Batman and Green Arrow may not be joining forces on the big screen anytime soon, but now we have a better idea of what that might look like thanks to this amazing fan trailer!
So far, Exodus: Gods and Kings has earned an estimated $107 million worldwide. It will continue to roll out to foreign territories, though you can scratch Egypt off its world-tour schedule.
The first trailer for Terrence Malick's The Knight Of Cups has been released and it is just as peculiar and artsy as you'd have thought.
The thing about the Red Sea sequence is that it competes with several eye-popping visual events in the rest of the movie. Sir Ridley Scott embraces his epic blockbuster side when bringing the size and scope of the story of Moses to the big screen.
Poor Bale. Christopher Nolan wrapped his Batman trilogy up in a tidy bow. Probably TOO tidy, giving everyone a happy ending whether they earned it or not. And yet, the actor (and likely the director) will always have to answer to fan theories and speculation
Speaking with the men behind the massive spectacle, it’s clear that they did what they could to keep things light on the set. In fact, while interviewing Edgerton about the scale of the picture, and Ridley Scott’s use of multiple cameras to capture the vast action on screen, he talked to me about stopping in the moment and reminding yourself, “It’s just a movie.”
When Terminator Salvation was released in 2009, it wound up being a bit of a clunker. Made with a stunning $200 million budget, the movie was not only poorly received by critics, but also underperformed in the United States and made a rather underwhelming $371 million worldwide.
While there’s been speculation on the return of The Dark Knight’s Batman, Christian Bale has put the notion to rest, assuring that his portrayal doesn’t fit in any other superhero movies.
Christian Bale has admitted that he doesn’t think of himself as a movie star. In fact, Christian Bale doesn’t think that anyone in the current cinematic climate is a movie star. In fact, the Exodus: Gods and Kings actor believes that the "movie star" is a dying breed.
Would Moses be regarded as a terrorist if he was around today? Christian Bale certainly thinks so.
Despite the fact that the actor has gone on to be in some incredible dramas – earning an Oscar for his dizzying work in David O. Russell’s The Fighter -- it’s likely that Bale will always be remembered for his time in the Batsuit, when he traded lines with fellow icons and reinvented how Hollywood views the modern superhero genre.
Christian Bale isn’t a flake who picks up and drops films at random. If he truly believes he’s wrong for the part, I can understand him passing on it.
