It wasn’t that long ago that superhero movies were just dreadful, but the first X-Men and Spider-Man movies, not to mention the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, went a long way to change the dreary status quo.
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.
While The Dark Knight Rises may not have been the great climax to the Batman series we may have hoped for, it was still a good ride for sure. While Bane didn’t totally deliver as the villain, one of the biggest surprises in the film was Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, and she did a terrific job in the role.
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.
Some time ago, we discussed the possibility of a major superhero film eventually being awarded an R rating.
As wild, crazy and difficult as he’s known to be, there’s no doubt Russell Crowe has put in some great performances.
When I first heard the director of Memento was taking on Batman years ago, I thought it was a great choice because he already proved he wasn’t a one hit wonder with Insomnia.
Screenwriter David Goyer has quite a career. He first broke through with his scripts for Dark City and the big screen adaptation of Blade.
We’re barely into the new year, and things are looking very promising indeed for genre movies.
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.
Superhero deaths aren’t a new phenomenon. We saw Superman die, then come back reborn.
I’ve always loved coming attractions, or trailers as they’re more often called these days, and the right trailer for either a big feature or a video game can really create a lot of excitement.
It probably isn't a major surprise for genre fans, but when it came to making big bucks at the box office, superheroes, sci-fi and fantasy ruled 2012.
It’s amazing to think that one of the biggest movies of the year centers around a teddy bear, but Ted is fast becoming one of the biggest comedies of all time, if it isn’t there already.
The Dark Knight Rises is now officially out on DVD and Blu-Ray, and it’s amazing to think that after waiting for so long, the Christopher Nolan Batman sagas are finally done.
With the DVD/Blu-Ray release of The Dark Knight Rises this week, Christopher Nolan’s Batman series has come full circle.
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.
Warner Bros. has posted a pair of clips from the upcoming Blu-ray release of The Dark Knight Rises.
