Opening in theaters on December 6th is the new thriller from director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) entitled Out of the Furnace, which was co-written by Cooper and Brad Ingelsby (The Dynamiter). The film truly features an all-star cast that includes Academy Award-winners Christian Bale (The Fighter), and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Academy Award-nominees Casey Affleck (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), Willem Dafoe (Platoon), Woody Harrelson (The People vs. Larry Flynt), and Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff), and popular actress Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Christian Bale to talk about his work on Out of the Furnace. The Oscar-winning actor discussed his new film, Philbrick's visit to the set, Bale's research for his role in Braddock, Pennsylvania while shooting The Dark Knight Rises in Pittsburgh, what Sam Shepard said about working with Bale, why Bale liked working with Shepard, collaborating with writer/director Scott Cooper, and why Cooper would not have made the film without Bale's participation.
It's been some time since we've heard so much as a peep from Interstellar, Christopher Nolan's mysterious original sci-fi tale.
Today, though, new photos from the Los Angeles set of Nolan's first movie since finishing up his Batman trilogy reveal...well, not a whole lot actually. But these images do show stars Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, as well as the bottoms of their space-exploration costumes.
It's the Blu-ray set Gotham deserves and also the one it needs right now. It's a silent guardian, a watchful protector.
It's The Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector's Edition.
Warner Bros. has finally rolled out a high definition presentation worthy of the armored, gadget-equipped home entertainment system at Wayne Manor. Bruce Wayne will be letting crime run wild tonight. His plans involve sipping on fernet branca with Alfred and Selina Kyle, followed by some snuggle time on the couch to bask in Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises.
A decade, Christian Bale and the other actors up for the role of Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins had to shoot tests proving to Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. that they could believably play the Caped Crusader.
Excerpts from Bale's screen test have emerged online, showing the actor in a batsuit for the first time, taking his bat-growl out for its first test drive.
Interstellar, the original sci-fi adventure from director and co-writer Christopher Nolan, remains shrouded in mystery.
But today, thanks to a battery of unofficial photos from the set and an info-nugget on the story, it's less mysterious than it was yesterday.
Alfred will be firing up Wayne Manor's armor-plated Blu-ray player on September 24th.
That's when Batman's latest three theatrical adventures hit shelves together for the first time in a super-deluxe ULTIMATE COLLECTOR'S EDITION.™
That's right, the swank presentation of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy that we all knew was coming is indeed inbound. Now Warner Bros. has officially announced the street date, as well as a rundown of the special features, artwork, assorted goodies, and even a suggested retail price for Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises.
Anne Hathaway appears to have decided on the first project she'll up for since winning an Academy Award, and it's a doozy.
Hathaway is in reportedly in negotiations to play a lead in Interstellar, the original science-fiction adventure from Christopher Nolan.
Before Hans Zimmer signed up to provide musical accompaniment for Man of Steel, the Oscar-winning composer said that the job would be a "thankless task."
So now here we are, just months out from the Superman reboot's June 14th theatrical release, and Zimmer is talking about his approach to scoring Man of Steel, discussing the challenge of sidestepping the familiar fanfare, the themes of the film that resonate with him, darkness, and the American Midwest.
With Matthew McConaughey signing up to star in Interstellar (accidental pun), we can see the beginnings of a trend: Christopher Nolan likes to cast leading men who have recently dropped tremendous amounts of weight for other roles.
Opening in theaters on June 14th is the highly anticipated reboot of the Superman franchise entitled Man of Steel, which was helmed by Visionary director Zack Snyder (Watchmen). The new film was produced by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), and based on a story he developed with screenwriter David S. Goyer (Batman Begins), who wrote the script. The new movie features an all-star cast that includes Henry Cavill (Immortals) as Clark Kent/Superman, Academy Award-nominees Amy Adams (The Fighter) as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got to Do With It) as Perry White, Diane Lane (Unfaithful) as Martha Kent, and Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road) as General Zod, as well as Emmy Award-winner Richard Schiff (TV’s The West Wing) as Dr. Emil Hamilton, and Academy Award-winners Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves) as Jonathan Kent, and Russell Crowe (Gladiator) as Jor-El.
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with screenwriter David S. Goyer to talk about his new Starz series Da Vinci's Demons. While we will run our video interview with Goyer about the new series separately, the following video contains what he had to say about Man of Steel, as well as his work on Godzilla, The Invisible Man, and the legacy of Blade. The busy screenwriter discussed the upcoming reboot, his concept for Man of Steel, how his previous comic book work helped prepare him for writing the film, collaborating with director Zack Snyder, his first reaction to seeing Henry Cavill on set in the iconic Superman costume, whether or not Lex Luthor appears in the film, if the rumors are true that the Jimmy Olsen character is now female, casting Laurence Fishburne as the first African American Perry White, not planning a trilogy, which DC Comics characters he would like to see in the sequel, as well as exactly what his contributions were to the Godzilla script, the current status of The Invisible Man, and a look back at the legacy of Blade.
