David O. Russell and The Fighter were good to Christian Bale — they gave the actor a chance to really dig deep into a role rich with dramatic potential, and he took home an Oscar for it. Now Bale is going back to work for Russell, in the film once called American Bullshit, which is working without a title for now.
Bale joins Bradley Cooper, fellow Fighter vet Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner in the film, which is based on a true story of a con man recruited to take down other con men. Read More »
Here on /Film, interest in the sequel to Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight was so high, we began covering it when the previous film was still in theaters. For years, crazy rumors would pop up on a weekly basis and once the film was titled The Dark Knight Rises and casting began, the rumors got even more wild. This site alone has run almost 600 articles on the project.
Now that the film is out, there’s much to discuss. You can debate the merits of the film, find issues with its narrative, or look back at all of the rumors and see just how accurate everything was. Below, we’ve broken down several of the bigger rumors and dissected which were true (more than you’d think), which were false (less than you’d think) and try to gauge just how well you can trust internet speculation with a huge movie like The Dark Knight Rises.
Everything below the jump should be considered MASSIVE SPOILERS. Like, “give away the last shot of the movie” type spoilers. So beware until you’ve seen the film. Read More »
The third film in Christopher Nolan‘s series of Batman movies is in theaters now. The Dark Knight Rises is Nolan’s biggest movie to date, and a particularly ambitious superhero film. This isn’t a movie in which fight scenes substitute for all the usual conversations between characters — in this film Nolan tries to bring everything together, from setpieces to fan service to deep character moments.
Christian Bale‘s Bruce Wayne deals with the lingering despair that plagued him after the events of The Dark Knight; Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) and young beat cop John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) try to come to terms with what Gotham City has become in the wake of the death of Harvey Dent; and Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) and the masked mercenary Bane (Tom Hardy) have their own plans for the city’s elite.
The film has been the subject of rumor and speculation for years. So now that you’ve had a chance to see Nolan’s finale, tell us what you thought of the film after the break. As always with these posts, spoilers are acceptable, and even encouraged. Read More »
