If you happened to grow up in the early eighties, you certainly knew about the Friday the 13th movies, even if you weren’t allowed to see them. They were what were called “mad slasher films,” an early incarnation of what became “torture porn,” and they ushered in an incredible era of make-up effects.
Since Christopher Nolan started shooting in Imax, it’s been a much more welcomed technology than the 3D revival. There have been some incredible Imax releases over the last five years or so, culminating with the experience of Gravity, which should only result in more Imax movies in the future.
Both director Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale have sworn they’ll never go back to Batman, and Nolan has already started shooting on his next movie, Interstellar, his science fiction epic about wormholes.
Besides the second coming of Star Wars, there’s another major geek event on the horizon: Interstellar. I know, it’s not a remake of another movie, video game or TV show, but it is the next movie Christopher Nolan is making post-Batman, and we’re dying to see what he’ll come up with next.
We at TG are very excited that Christopher Nolan, the man who reinvented Batman, will be making a sci-fi movie next, Interstellar, which is slated for release next November.
With all the buzz and excitement surrounding Man of Steel, how could we forget that it will soon be Superman’s 75th birthday?
I can still remember when Matthew McConaughey first broke through big in 1996 with A Time to Kill, although he also got a lot of good notices for Dazed and Confused.
David Goyer is the screenwriter of the Blade films, and he also brought Bruce Wayne’s alter ego back from the dead with Batman Begins.
Last July, the Christopher Nolan / Christian Bale Batman films finally came full circle with The Dark Knight Rises. Although Nolan is producing Man of Steel, and he may also produce Justice League, he swears he’s never going back to Batman.
Man of Steel is without a doubt one of the most anticipated movies of the summer.
Although Christopher Nolan didn’t direct Man of Steel, the upcoming Superman reboot, he is involved as a producer, which means the film should have some definite Nolan trademarks.
Once Batman is completed, where do you go next? Oh right, we have Man of Steel coming next summer, the next Avengers in a couple of years, and yet more Spider-Man films.
Nolan has indeed been very clear that this is the end of his version of Batman, just like the surviving members of Zeppelin swear up and down they won’t reunite.
While I couldn’t recall hearing or reading anything about the new Superman flick, Man of Steel, being up for a 3D conversion, it makes sense the movie would be on the fast track for 3D treatment.
So many people in Hollywood love to complain about how a movie has to be rushed because of the merch and swag.
Everyone has probably already seen the teaser trailer for Man of Steel, which played before The Dark Knight Rises.
It's a given that The Dark Knight Rises, the last of the Christopher Nolan / Christian Bale Batman flicks, would do big business at the box office.
Whatever one thinks of The Dark Knight Rises, it is quite clear that we owe Christopher Nolan a big debt because he basically saved and reinvented the Batman franchise.
So the last Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale Batman finally hit theaters this past weekend. Sadly, a horrible tragedy marred the experience and is casting a long pall over the film.
Anne Hathaway stands ready for more Catwoman action.
