Musicals are among the hardest of film genres to pull off with conviction. Long gone is the heyday of the musical film, and with a few exceptions, the forms have gone their separate ways, musicals relegated to Broadway, far from the gaze of film. While there are some musical films that have been quite successful both artistically and financially in more recent years (Chicago, Sweeney Todd) the only reason they have successfully worked in a keen awareness of genre type.
Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy has been nothing short of breathtaking to watch unfold. From the humble beginnings of both Bruce Wayne and the trilogy with the- for an action film, relatively unassuming Batman Begins, which presented a realistic, emotionally attentive vision of the Batman origin story, to the hype machine that was The Dark Knight, featuring Heath Ledger’s mesmerizing take on the Joker, and a weighty psychological undercurrent to match.
I can't believe The Dark Knight Rises is only 11 days away. I am so unbelievably excited, it is physically painful to wait. Luckily, this 13-minute featurette that's just been released has taken some of the edge off, teasing an incredibly epic finale to Nolan's Batman trilogy. Packed into this video are some great sound bytes from the cast and crew, a few new bits from the film, and most awesome of all, some mind-blowing behind the scenes footage and pictures.
I decided not to tune into this year's MTV Movie Awards, and it turns out that might've been a mistake. A new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises was shown that night, and luckily, it's made its way onto the web? My verdict. Amazing! Check it out below.
Apologies in advance Avengers, I know this is your week (and I'll definitely be seeing you at midnight), but this might steal a bit of your thunder. The Dark Knight rises has received a third trailer, and wow, WOW, it's awesome. There's not much more to say except that this one has a significant number of money shots, so many that I feel like maybe I've seen to much. If that's okay with you though, check it out below. It's pretty great.
Sweeeeeeeet. Via the official Dark Knight Rises website, we have our first look at Anne Hathaway in costume as Selina Kyle. Not only that, but leaked set photos of Hathaway's stunt double reveal more angles of the costume design. Check out all of the pics below.
Production on Christopher Nolan's epic conclusion to his Batman trilogy is in full swing, and we've got another batch of news, rumors, set photos and more below the break. Check 'em out and let me know what you think.
Speculation on at least two of the roles in the new Batman film can now end, as Warner Bros has surprisingly announced two of the casting decisions and their corresponding characters. Anne Hathaway will take on the role of Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, and Tom Hardy will play Bane.
Get Smart, a remake of sorts of the 1960s spy-comedy television series, is the latest comedy from director Peter Segal. The film follows Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell), an enthusiastic but occasionally incompetent analyst for the top secret organization CONTROL. When evil rival organization, KAOS, begins systematically taking out CONTROL operatives around the world, Smart is given the chance to pursue his dream of being a full-fledged agent. Paired with the more experienced Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway), Smart embarks on a fairly typical spy-comedy adventure.
