This week a couple of good profiles have been published on Christopher Nolan in advance of his film Interstellar hitting theaters next week. The two main articles come from the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, and I recommend checking out both pieces. Together, the profiles feature a great deal of interesting information on the filmmaker and his latest film which I thought might be of interest. I have collected 15 of most interesting tidbits for you after the jump.

Outside of Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning performance, arguably the most iconic addition to the Batman universe thanks to Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight Trilogy was the Tumbler. The way Nolan created a functional, realistic Batmobile and continued to evolve it over the course of three films was just beyond cool. It was one of those things fans and non-fans alike wanted to own when they walked out of the movie. And while The Dark Knight Tumbler has been available in various different ways, it’s finally getting an Ultimate Collector’s Edition Lego.
Below, see images of the Ultimate Collectors Edition Dark Knight Tumbler Lego. Read More »

One constant topic of conversation with respect to Christopher Nolan‘s Batman films is the voice Christian Bale used for the costumed character. Is it a great way for Bruce Wayne to create a distinct and exaggerated persona for the hero, or a ridiculous affectation, or something in between? That question can be debated as much as you’d like, but now we’ve got Bale’s own explanation of the voice, which he came up with as he auditioned for the part. In fact, he created the voice as a way to deal with the mental aspect of the character, especially when he (Bale, that is) found out first-hand what it’s like to walk around in that suit.
Bale isn’t a big fan of released audition footage — “they get you at your most vulnerable moment, the bastards,” he gripes — but overall the clip below represents a good, light talk about the Nolan films and the character. It’s refreshing! Read More »
