Christopher Nolan Colbert Report Interview

This week filmmaker Christopher Nolan appeared on The Colbert Report. I wanted to spotlight this interview because Christopher Nolan usually doesn’t do fun talk shows like Colbert, and Stephen gets the almost-always-serious Nolan to swear and talk on a more down to earth level. I know that Nolan is very picky about which outlets he does interviews with (rumor has it he hates online blogs, which is why you almost never see him talk 1:1 with anything but print and television press) so for him to accept an interview with Stephen Colbert likely means he’s watched the show (he tells Colbert he’s also a big fan of his in the quick intro). My favorite moment comes when Colbert takes Nolan to task for making him think in a big blockbuster space epic, asking “Guardians of the Galaxy didn’t make me do that… why do you want to make me think? Why can’t you have shit just blow up?” Watch the full Christopher Nolan Colbert Report Interview embedded after the jump.

The Best Teaser Trailers of All Time

The Best Teaser Trailers Of All Time

I love teaser trailers. We live in a day and age where most Hollywood trailers show too much, valuing cool footage over mystery, surprise and a well-constructed edit. There is an art to the teaser trailer. Some filmmakers such as Brad Bird, Christopher Nolan, JJ Abrams, and, yes, Michael Bay, are still able to take creative control over the early marketing and cut awesome packages that are big on excitement and mystery without revealing too much. Other editors, like Mark Woollen, craft great teasers with input from directors such as the Coen Brothers.

I love that teaser trailers can spotlight the promise of a high concept idea. I love that teaser trailers can act as a tone poem for a more complicated dramatic film. I love that a teaser trailer can show so little of the actual film yet get me more excited than the two and a half minute final trailer.  Over the last week I tried to compile a list of the best teaser trailers of all time and rank them.  After the jump you can find my list of the best teaser trailers of all time.
