You are hereJoseph Gordon-Levitt
Deadline is reporting that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has decided to sign up for the noir drama Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and has passed on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Gordon-Levitt will play the role of Johnny, a compulsive gambler and core character in the feature’s overlapping story lines.
It's been talked about endlessly, but now we finally have a somewhat reliable source that is reporting it as fact, JGL may very well be putting on the Batsuit in the Justice League film. The news comes from HitFix’s Drew McWeeny, who's been pretty accurate in the past. He says, with very little uncertainty, that JGL will "absolutely will be appearing in Justice League as the new Batman." Nice.
This article is completely biased. In fact, I will preface this review by admitting that I am a heterosexual woman in my early 20s who loved Brick and The Brothers Bloom, as well as Inception, 12 Monkeys, and the new Doctor Who series. That being said, the only way I could have gone to see this movie and hated it would have been the storytelling. Needless to say, I walked out of that theater a fan. If you can't stand any of those influences listed (Rian Johnson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and mindfucking time travel stories), then I suggest you stop reading now. Go read some of Genki's work or something. Just don’t get angry. My boyfriend has a blackbelt in two martial arts. I'm just saying…
After much teasing, a trailer for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln has been released, and it looks quite Spielbergian. Depending on how your felt about War Horse, that might be more or less reassuring to you. If nothing else, it looks epic and emotional, and it's got Daniel Day Lewis playing President Lincoln. That alone is pretty awesome.
A Looper international trailer has appeared online. It's mostly recycled footage (with significantly less wubwubwubs), but if you're as eager as I am to snatch up any and all information on Rian Johnson's next, check it out below. The really interesting reveal though has been the viral site that launched with it, which gives users the opportunity to "sign-up" to be a Looper and learn more about the job.
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.
If you thought the Looper teaser was awesome, prepare for more... awesome. This one is worth a watch just to see Bruce Willis and JGL exchange words and punches. There seems to be a lot this trailer reveals (so stay away if you're especially spoiler prone), but if those gravity defying shots are to be believed, there's still plenty more mystery in this one. Looper will hit theaters on September 28.
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.
