'Man of Steel' trailer deep dive: Rebuilding Superman with fear and trembling

MAN-OF-STEEL-01_510x317.jpg

Man of Steel won’t be hurting for an audience when the latest cinematic incarnation of Superman swoops into theaters next summer. The casting of Henry Cavill (The Tudors, The Immortals) has been met with great enthusiasm from fanboys, media, and pretty much everyone with working eyeballs. The supporting players ooze quality and clout: Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne. That’s an all-star team-up of acting Avengers right there. Behind the camera, a marketable, geek-cool, movie-smart brain trust: producer Christopher Nolan, screenwriter David Goyer, director Zack Snyder. With talent like this above and below the line, there’s little doubt people will be buying tickets…

But will they buy Superman himself?

Hugh Jackman: Anne Hathaway, Liev Schreiber salute 'modern-day Renaissance Man'

In his introduction to the Museum of the Moving Image’s Salute to Hugh Jackman, MOMI’s Chairman Herbert S. Schlosser called the Aussie actor one of the “most talented and well-liked stars today.” The honor, which has been awarded to both stars (Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks) and savants (Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg), was just a preambular feather in Jackman’s cap — he would go on to score SAG and Golden Globe nominations this week. Hugh Jackman, it turns out, is something we can all agree on: We like him, we really like him.

Of course, Jackman couldn’t resist poking a little fun at himself in his acceptance speech. He quipped that this holiday season brought “pretty much what I want every year — a movie, starring me, to open Christmas day and be promoted on massive billboards… maybe an award to top it off. I’m a simple, low-key kind of guy.” Jackman’s own speech came after toasts from several of his Hollywood colleagues, including Les Misérables co-stars Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne, his director on The Prestige Christopher Nolan, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine co-star Liev Schreiber, among others. Below, the night’s top five soundbites… READ FULL STORY

'The Dark Knight Rises': The Blu-ray/iPad app is a deep dive into the film for action movie fans

The day The Dark Knight Rises gets its DVD and Blu-ray release — that’s today — is also a day worthy of a trip to iTunes’ app store.

Warner Bros. Home Video is bringing the behind-the-scenes exploration most of us are used to experiencing solely on our TVs further into the 21st century with its iPad/iPhone app that syncs to Dark Knight Rises’ Blu-ray disc. The app’s dual screen features spotlight aspects of the film like the characters, the sets, vehicles and gadgets and the making of ambitious action scenes including the football stadium disaster and Bane’s brutal fight with Batman.

'The Dark Knight Rises': Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway talk 'End of a Legend' in Blu-ray featurette -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The finale to Christopher Nolan’s caped crusader triptych, The Dark Knight Rises, may be about redemption, but it’s also about endings.

'The Dark Knight Rises' out on Blu-ray, DVD on Dec. 4 -- EXCLUSIVE

Holy smokes, Batman. The rumors, speculation and general chit-chat can be put to rest.

Christopher Nolan’s Batman epic The Dark Knight Rises will be released on Blu-ray combo pack, DVD, and digital download on Dec. 4, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group announced exclusively to EW.

The last film in Nolan’s dark, gritty Gotham City trilogy, starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, and Tom Hardy as brutal villain Bane, will also be available in a limited edition Blu-ray Bat Cowl collectible package — not quite in time for your Halloween costume, but there’s always next year.

The Blu-ray combo pack is stuffed with a bunch of extras, from a documentary about the Batmobile, where all five Batmobiles are together for the first time, to Ending the Knight, an in-depth look featuring about 17 featurettes at how Nolan and his production team made The Dark Knight Rises, from Batman vs. Bane to totally demolishing a city street. Both the Blu-ray and DVD include a featurette called The Journey of Bruce Wayne. There are also trailers and art galleries.

Report: 'Dark Knight Rises' Blu-ray rumored to include Director's Cut

Maybe, just maybe, we’ll be able to find out just what Bane meant when he said, “You only adopted the dark; I was born in it.” (Or, more accurately, “rawrrkkkssofffflll bbrrooddmmmm.”)

Rumors are circulating on the internet that the Blu-ray release of The Dark Knight Rises could include an extended director’s cut. Alleged to run a full 30 minutes longer than the 165-minute theatrical cut, the extended version is said to feature scenes depicting Bane’s origin and more screen time for Liam Neeson’s Ra’s Al Ghul.

Here’s why we’re skeptical:

1. It’s a rumor.  On the internet.
2. Nolan has never released extended director’s cuts of any of his other feature films.
3. As a perfectionist, it’s unlikely that Nolan gave the OK to a truncated or incomplete film for wide release. READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'The Dark Knight Rises' debuts with $160.9 million

dark-knight-rises-batman

Official numbers are in, and the final chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga, The Dark Knight Rises, earned a gargantuan $160.9 million in its opening weekend — the third-best debut of all time, and the best ever for a 2-D movie. The haul, which includes $19 million from 332 IMAX screens, is just slightly ahead of The Dark Knight‘s $158.3 million debut in 2008, and slightly behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2‘s $169.2 million in 2011.

Prognosticators said the film would finish somewhere between $180 and 200 million during its first three days (I predicted $192 million), but the tragic shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colo. on Friday may have dissuaded some moviegoers from heading out to the theater over the weekend.

Christopher Nolan on theater shooting: 'I would like to express our profound sorrow'

Christopher Nolan has released a statement following the tragic events in Colorado in the early hours of July 20 — when a gunman opened fire at midnight screening of  The Dark Knight Rises.

“Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of The Dark Knight Rises, I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community. I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting, but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime. The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families,” the director said.

12 audience members were shot and killed, 49 more were injured in the shooting.

Matthew Modine Rises: Private Joker on the Dark Knight, Steve Jobs, and a Batman/Iron Man steel cage match

When Matthew Modine calls The Dark Knight Rises the “most insane film that I’ve ever been involved with,” that’s really saying something. After all, this is the same man who did a famously lengthy tour of duty with Stanley Kubrick to complete the seminal 1987 war film, Full Metal Jacket, an exhausting odyssey that lacked a scripted ending until the final stages of production. When Modine describes Christopher Nolan’s sprawling new Batman epic in such terms, however, he’s not referring to such chaos, but the sheer scope, the stirring action, and the swirling winds of philosophical and political commentary that are howling through Batman’s cape, Catwoman’s spandex, and Bane’s mask.

Modine, too, plays an important role in the proceedings. As Deputy Commissioner Foley, he represents a misguided Gotham City that has turned its back on what is important during a time of relative peace. Like the rest of the police force — except Commissioner Gordon — he’s hungry to capture Batman for all the wrong reasons, and when Bane finally grabs the city by the throat, he’s not prepared.

Christopher Nolan addresses online outrage over negative 'Dark Knight Rises' reviews

Director Christopher Nolan is defending fans irate over negative reviews of The Dark Knight Rises. While the final piece of Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy has gotten mostly positive reviews, a few critics, including The Associated Press’ Christy Lemire, gave it a negative review. Fan response to those critics became so venomous on the review aggregator site RottenTomatoes.com that it suspended user comments late Monday.

Appearing at Wednesday’s London premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, Nolan was quick to defend fans’ heated response to the reviews. “I think the fans are very passionate about these characters the way a lot of people are very passionate. Batman’s been around for over 70 years and there’s a reason for that. He has a huge appeal, so I think you know people certainly respond to the character,” he said. READ FULL STORY
