There's been a lot of talk on Christopher Nolan's latest film because, well, he's a widely famous director who just got done with The Dark Knight trilogy. Now he's leaning over towards sci-fi with Interstellar, a cool new movie with an incredible cast that looks too good to ignore. But do we really know all of the story just yet? Apparently no from what...

Dark Knight Rises
With rumors swirling for a year that Warner Bros. will be making a Justice League franchise a la Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, the internet has had plenty of time to begin assuming all sorts of wild theories, such as one in which Warner Bros. pays Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale massive amounts of money to be involved.  And, given Nolan’s involvement in Man of Steel,...

The Top 10 Best Movie Sequels

Best Sequels
Every new movie that hits theaters nowadays seems to be a sequel. This year alone there's Kick-Ass 2, Iron Man 3, Despicable Me 2, and Fast and Furious 1000 6. There are so many sequels that we can hardly keep track of them, especially since most of them aren't all that spectacular. Often times, the original movie is the best movie of the bunch. But there...

While the past few years have seen numerous annoying trends ascending in the film world (the resurgence of 3D gimmicky to raise ticket prices, the ‘trailer for the trailer,’ Katherine Heigl romantic comedies), one trend that, when done properly, truly works is IMAX.  Creating breathtaking visuals in such films as The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight...

The Best And Worst Reboots In Cinema

Best And Worst Reboots
There's a thin line between remakes and reboots. And sometimes, in this business, we makes the mistake of using them as synonyms for each other. But there's a big difference between the two, the main one being that there actually aren't very many movie reboots out there... yet. Remakes there's a ton. Movie reboots on the other hand, aren't as popularized. But that's going to change in...

'The Dark Knight Rises' Scores $300 Million So Far, Breaks IMAX Box Office...

Published by

Dark Knight Rises
Say what you will about the flaws of The Dark Knight Rises—it’s Swiss-cheesed with more plot holes than the entire Nolan oeuvre combined, it lacks some of the idea-based thematic unity of the previous Nolan Bat films, etc—it’s still an out-and-out spectacle of technical filmmaking.  A little bloodless, yes, but still more comprehensible than anything Michael...

Bane's The Dark Knight Rises
Despite the fact that The Dark Knight Rises opens wide on Thursday night at midnight, Warner Bros. is still churning out TV spot after TV spot and trailer after trailer for film, in what seems to be a bid to at least come close to The Avengers’ box office dominion earlier this summer—if not somehow better it.  As such, we have three new TV spots, each of which mesh new...

Mondo posters—the highly coveted alternate, and often incredibly awesome, posters for classic and cult films, designed by a stable of independent artists working for Mondo—are often the crown jewels in the collections of movie poster collectors.  So it makes sense that Mondo would design a poster for the most anticipated film of 2012—The Dark Knight Rises, and release it at...

'The Dark Night Rises': Christopher Nolan's Batman Trilogy Trailer

Published by

dark knight trilogy
Just how many trailers can one film have?  A teaser?  Sure.  A full trailer?  Of course.  A second full trailer?  Why not?  A third full-length trailer?  Well… OK.  A fourth trailer?  Apparently so, because that’s what dropped late Tuesday: a trailer that begins as an ad for the entire Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, before jumping into two minutes of new The Dark...

Well, we’re less than two weeks away from the release of 2012’s most anticipated film: The Dark Knight Rises.  And while we don’t have anything too spoilery to give away—Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Robin!  Catwoman kills Alfred!  It was all a dream of Commissioner Gordon’s! (I’m making these up, don’t panic)—we do have something pretty cool: the entire score for The...
