Christopher Nolan Discusses His Batman Trilogy

Published

on

Superhero movies are big business for studios, thanks in large to Christopher Nolan. Thanks to Nolan’s more realistic take on Batman in 2005 with Batman Begins, studios started to take comic book films seriously. The film went on to earn $374 million dollars worldwide. Nolan’s second entire in the series The Dark Knight earned $1 billion dollars and is a masterpiece.

Speaking with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in London, Nolan spoke about his secret to making such a trilogy was the amount of time he had to complete the films. Batman Begins, which starred Christian Bale in the title role, was released in 2005, while The Dark Knight, which featured Heath Ledger, was released in 2008 and The Dark Knight Rises was released in 2012.

“That’s a privilege and a luxury that filmmakers aren’t afforded anymore. I think it was the last time that anyone was able to say to a studio, ‘I might do another one, but it will be four years’. There’s too much pressure on release schedules to let people do that now but creatively it’s a huge advantage. We had the privilege and advantage to develop as people and as storytellers and then bring the family back together,” he said.

Studios are rushing to get films done quicker and quicker. Not given writers or directors enough time to build on the source material. This makes it really hard for the audience to connect with the characters on the screen. Maybe studios should take notes from the book of Nolan.

El-P and Killer Mike are ready for an alien invasion in their lastest video.

The clip opens with a comical RTJ3 news report teasing “strange weather patterns” throughout the city. From there, it cuts to Killer Mike and El-P walking backstage at the Garden to rapturous applause. When they walk back out for an encore, they discover that the audience has vanished. Meanwhile, a series of threats – falling meteors, mutant spiders, UFOs – loom outside.

“Call Ticketron” highlights the rap duo’s third LP, 2016’s Run the Jewels 3. The group, which recently concluded a massive 2017 tour, will kick off a leg of Australian dates in January followed by a supporting slot on Lorde’s North American spring tour.

Deadpool Will Continue To Be Rated R

Published

on

The merch with the mouth will continue to be the same character. Disney CEO Bob Iger has addressed the future of Deadpool, confirming Fox’s film franchise will remain R-rated following Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

“It [Deadpool] clearly has been and will be Marvel branded. But we think there might be an opportunity for a Marvel-R brand for something like Deadpool,” Iger said in a call with investors following the news that Disney will purchase 21st Century Fox  “As long as we let the audiences know what’s coming, we think we can manage that fine,” he added.

Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld also chimed in on the decision.

[Disney CEO] Bob Iger didn’t deliver this unprecedented level of historic success for Disney by accident. This man gets it. He understands the culture and more importantly, he understands the concerns of the fans. Addressing the Deadpool issue right out of the gate gets high marks and in all honesty, why would they mess with the success that Ryan Reynolds has achieved as Deadpool?
